Playing Video Poker is easy and, if you know how to play Poker and Slots, then you already have an advantage. The object is to make the best hand from the five cards that are dealt to you. You do this by holding cards that can assist you in making a winning hand and replacing those that will not benefit you.

In some Video Poker games, you can actually get a special hand called Five of a Kind. This happens in games where a Wild card is used. The Wild Card substitutes for any card you wish.
