How to Play the Game
To start a game, the player must choose how many credits are to be played on each spin. One for five is typically the default option. On many online poker machines, you can also decide how much you want to bet for every credit: prizes are of course dependent on how much you are betting.
When you have deposited your credits, you will be dealt your first five cards. In nearly all games, the machine is a simulation of a five card draw, which means you will be getting five cards out of a normal deck of 52 cards.
The goal of the game is to obtain the best possible hand with five cards. You will need a certain card portfolio to be able to win a prize.
