Video poker is nothing new to the casino world, it has been played since the 1970’s and was referred to as “poker slots”. It was given this name as it resembled a slot game more than a poker game. Video poker is more complex than online slots, you do need skill and knowledge to play this game as your decisions when playing have an effect on the ultimate outcome of the game. Here at Royal Vegas casino we have a selection of online video poker games for you to play, ranging from basic 5-card poker to the more complex 7-card poker. Video poker is a popular choice of game at the casino as there is no interaction needed at all, you do not play against a dealer or anyone else. Your hand is judged on the best possible combination possible.
If video poker is not your style of gaming then why not try table poker? It is available in our online table games selection.
