Video Poker History

Introduced in the 1970's, Video Poker has grown to be one of the most popular forms of gambling both in land casinos and online. Fast and challenging, and involving a combination of skill and luck, Video Poker attracts players by providing hours of stimulating entertainment.  The vast majority of Video Poker games are based on five-card draw Poker.  In five-card draw, players are dealt five cards and can throw away any or all of the cards to try to improve their hand. New cards are dealt to replace the discarded ones, and the resulting hand determines whether you win or lose.

Over the years a number of variations have been, and continue to be, introduced.   The first Video Poker game introduced was Jacks or Better, followed shortly by Deuces Wild, then Joker Poker.  In the late 1980's, the "Bonus" series started and developed over the next few years - Bonus Poker, Double Bonus Poker, Double Double Bonus Poker, and Triple Double Bonus Poker (not yet available on the net).  These games pay more for the "bonus" hands of 4 Aces, 2's, 3's, and 4's.  During the later development of the "Bonus" games came the introduction of the Double Jackpot and Double Double Jackpot games which pay more for the bonus hands of 4 Aces, Kings, Queens, and Jacks.  The Video Poker tips and strategies for each of these games is different which is one of the fun and challenging things about Video Poker!

The last few years have seen the development of countless variations of the game, including many variations on the Deuces Wild and Jokers Wild games.  In fact, there are so many variations constantly coming out now that it's difficult to keep up with them!   To try a few newer and very fun variations not yet available to online casinos, visit Led Gaming where you can play these new games for free.

Along with the variations of the game itself have now come the Multi Hand games, where you can play several hands at once, with just one deal and draw of the cards.   The Multi Hand Video Poker games have just come to the internet in the last year and are becoming an increasingly competitive arena for the online casinos.  On the internet you can currently play up to 100 hands at a time with any RTG casino; Microgaming just came out with two new 10 hand power poker games, and Gambling Federation just launched 50 hand video poker this past April.  The Video Poker games available at online casinos should continue to advance at a nice clip over the next few years.
