Video Poker Glossary

Every casino game has lingo of it's own and it's almost like a language of it's own. Below you will find terms and words that you might see when playing video poker.

Bank · A row of video poker or slot machines.

Bankroll · A players gambling stake, how much money they have to play with.

Bonus · A game offers special bonuses for hitting specific hands, also refers to a sign-up or loyalty bonus.

Cycle · How many hands you should expect to have to play before hitting a jackpot.

Deuces Wild · A variety of video poker where a deuce becomes the best card possible for your hand.

Full Pay · A machine that offers the most favorable payouts. Also called 9/6 machines because they pay nine coins for a full house and six coins for a flush.

Gutshot Straight · A straight that can only be filled by one rank of card. For example, if the screen shows 8 9 T 4 Q you can discard the 4 and go for one of the four jacks to make a gutshot straight.

House Edge · The house edge is the casino's average profit from a player's bet.

Joker Poker · A variation where the joker is wild as in Deuces Wild.

Pay Table · A pay table is the name for the list of payouts on a slot machine or a video poker machine.
