Video poker is not the most talked about casino game at the Australian online casino but that should not stop players fromtrying out this fun game which is a mix of poker and pokies. In the basic game of video poker players are dealt five cards and after reviewing the cards they can decide which cards to hold and which ones to discard in the hope of receiving better cards to make up a better hand. There are many different variations on the game where different cards can act as wilds or bonus cards. The best hand is similar to the best hand in poker; the royal flush and the level of winnings are based on the different hands that are gained. Players can bet a wide range of coin sizes and in some of the Australian casinos, there are also multi hand video poker games that make playing even more interesting and riveting.
