Below you will find detailed the Atlantic
city Poker rules as used by crptologic powered online casinos such as
Intercasino, all figures shown are applicable to Intercasino as it is
the most popular cyptologic powered casino.
The objective of Video Poker is to receive
the highest ranked five-card poker hand possible.
An InterCasino Video Poker machine operates like any Video Poker machine
found in the casinos throughout the world. The only difference, which
is greatly favorable for the player, is that you can switch your bet
from $0.25 to $5 a game without changing to another machine! A 52 card
deck is used (53 for Joker Poker) and is reshuffled after each hand.
The different combinations and their respective payoffs for each machine
are shown in the Payoff section below.
To begin playing Video Poker, you must
deposit money into the machine. To do this, you must select a bill
type ($100, $50, $20, $10, $5) from the panel on the Video Poker screen.
You can toggle through the different bill types by clicking on the
panel. Once you have made your selection, deposit the bill into the
Video Poker machine by clicking on the bill deposit area. You should
see a bill move from your clip into the Video Poker machine. You may
then select which coin denomination you wish to play - $0.25, $1,
$2, or $5. To increase or decrease denominations, please click on
the "right arrow" or "left arrow" buttons, respectively, at the top
of the Video Poker machine.
The amount of coins you have available within the machine is shown
in the CREDITS field at the bottom of the Video Poker machine. For
example, if you deposit $20 when the coin denomination selector is
set to $1, you will see 20 in the CREDITS field. If you then click
the "left arrow" button of the coin denomination selector (which changes
the coin value to $0.25), you will then see that the CREDITS field
has been changed to 80 coins. The Bet field displays the amount of
coins you have selected to bet on that hand. Please note that the
Balance field will not change when you change the coin denomination
since it shows your balance in dollars (not coins).
You can now select either "Bet One" or "Bet Max" to choose how many
coins you would like to play with up to a maximum of five coins. "Bet
Max" will automatically let you play with all five coins.
When you are ready, click on the "Deal" button to distribute the cards.
You will be given 5 cards.
The machine uses a 52 card deck (53 for Joker Poker)
which is played fresh after each hand.
Hold onto the card(s) that you need in order to achieve
the highest ranked poker hand possible. You may hold cards by simply
clicking on them. The selected cards will shift out of the dealt hand
and show a thumb tack holding them in place.
Once you have selected a given amount of cards to hold, click on the
"Draw" button. The cards that were not marked with a thumb tack will
be replaced. If after this replacement you have any combination of
cards that qualifies for a payout, your credit will be increased by
the amount of coins shown in the Paid field.
To change the type of Video Poker machine you are playing, click on
"Games" in the menu bar and select the game you would like to play.
When you change the game type, your credit and coin denominations
will not change.
You can only change the Video Poker machines when your
hand is finished, i.e. when the BET buttons are active.
The following games offer a progressive jackpot: 25¢
Super Jackpot and $1 Super Jackpot. Unlike regular video poker games,
progressive video poker games operate on a fixed denomination. So, if
you are playing 25¢ Super Jackpot and you would like to switch to $1
Super Jackpot, you need to exit the 25¢ Super Jackpot game and then
enter the $1 Super Jackpot game.
If you are playing a regular video poker game for $2 or $5 and then
switch to a progressive video poker game, the denomination and credits
will change to the match the denomination of the game selected. The
top payout on a progressive jackpot machine is not fixed as in regular
video poker games. The Jackpot value starts from 1250 coins and grows
each time anybody makes a bet.
