First Person Video Poker is an exciting reinterpretation of our live version of this popular Poker game. It blends engaging gameplay with a robust RNG element, ensuring a thrilling Poker experience. The player is placed in front of a virtual Video Poker machine at the centre of a virtual casino gaming floor.

The objective of the game is to make the best possible five-card hand. The hand can consist of either the initial five  cards or any of the additional virtual cards.

Start of the Game

To participate in the game, choose your paytable, bet per hand and the number of hands you would like to play with. You can purchase up to 99 extra hands per game round. The default paytable is Jacks or Better, but you can select between any of these paytables:

  • Jacks or Better
  • Tens or Better
  • Deuces Wild
  • Bonus Poker
  • Double Double Bonus.

The maximum number of hands per game round is 100.

Initial Card Deal

Once the betting time is closed, the initial cards will be dealt. If you have purchased any additional cards, they will appear as virtual cards at the top of the screen, face

down at first. You will only see the main hand containing the dealt cards if you did not purchase any additional hands.

Hold or Swap your Cards

After the initial cards have been dealt, choose which of the five cards you wish to hold and which to swap. You may hold from zero to five cards by clicking on them – a ‘HOLD’ sign will appear below the held cards. If no cards have been held, a default decision is made on your behalf.

Card Swap

When the decision time is over, the cards you decided not to hold will be swapped with virtually dealt RNG cards. These cards are randomly picked from a virtual deck that contains the remaining 47 cards. Additionally, your other virtual hands will be populated into fully virtual hands. All the virtual hands will hold the same cards you chose to hold initially, but the remaining cards will be dealt from a virtual deck, ensuring that each card will differ.


Once all the virtual hands have been populated with RNG cards, the winning Poker combinations, their frequency and payout are displayed. Each winning combination has its own colour code for an easier overview.
