Go All In With Video Poker At Ladbrokes

Video poker is an easy game to start playing as the basics of the hands and rankings will be familiar to all poker players. However, it does require knowledge and a certain level of skill in order to master the game, whic our Guide to Video Poker Casino Games can help with. Five cards will be dealt to the player, and they have to choose which cards to keep in order to try and construct a winning hand. With some of the best odds in the casino, video poker is the perfect alternative to a slot machine where you still have a chance of winning a huge jackpot, but you can implement skill in order to get it. 

The difference with online video poker is that you are not competing against any other hands during the game – instead your hand will be ranked against a payout table. As with any game of poker, the ultimate aim is to hit a Royal Flush in order to win a huge jackpot!

Desktop Video Poker Variations

The most popular video poker variation that is available on your desktop with Ladbrokes Casino is known as Jacks or Better. The aim of the game is simply to achieve a pair of Jacks, or better, in order to win a payout. The payout tables will vary from game to game. Here are a list of some of the other online video poker games that we feature on our site that you can play on your desktop: 

Deuces Wild: In this variation, all deuces in the deck are wild (like a wild symbol in a slot machine) and can therefore be substituted for any rank or suit. This makes it far easier to obtain big hands. Get four deuces in a hand in order to get a huge payout! 

Joker's Wild/Joker Poker: Instead of a standard 52 card deck, Joker's Wild also features the Joker card, making players use a 53 card deck. A joker can be used like the deuces in Deuces Wild, where they can be substituted for any rank or suit. 

10s or Better: Similar to Jacks or Better, but a simpler variation where a pair of 10s is enough to win a payout. 

Aces and Faces: With this variation, you can get a higher payout for any four of a kind that features Jacks, Queens, Kings or Aces – with four aces providing you with the biggest payout! 

2 Ways Royal: You can claim the huge jackpot prize for a Royal Flush in two different ways with this variation! With the traditional 10, J, Q, K, A Royal Flush, and also a hand of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6!
