Video poker has been around for a good forty years. The changes that have been moving through the casinos are really astounding! With the birth of online casinos, the changes keep coming and you need to know which are good and which are bad.

In the seventies, video poker was a machine that lived near the slots and was an innocuous way to invite the solitary player off the strip to come in and play. There is no pressure, no fuss in video poker and there never has been. The thing that has been the same since video poker's inception up to now is that it is a game of skill for players who like to play solitary.

The rise of online casinos has brought about a whole range of special comps, promotions and rewards for all levels of players. Online casinos have also brought a wider range of payout schedules. When you sit to play at a game of "Jacks or Better", there may be something different than before. The payout schedule is mostly an industry standard until more recently. Therefore, it is very important that you look at the payout table every single time.

Remember that nothing lasts forever and this is also true with video poker. It is still the best game to play for its odds against the house, but always remember to take a second look. Video poker is still great fun and we can only imagine the exciting changes that are to come in the future.
