Microgaming, the kings of online casino games, have streamlined every part of the playing process to make the Spin Galaxy video poker experience as seamless as possible. This means cutting out the Flop, Turn, and River stages typically associated with Hold ‘em Poker, and instead opting for the 5-card draw variant. Like online slots, video poker is also a strictly solo experience, so there’s no bluffing other players. Each round of 5-card draw video poker features two stages, these are the deal and the draw.
Players must place their bets before each round and click the play button when they are ready to begin. During the initial deal stage, 5 cards will be drawn at random from the full deck and shown on the screen. Any cards that make up a winning hand will be automatically selected to remain. However, if players want to hold onto any of their cards for their own play-style, they can select them by tapping or clicking on them. Clicking the draw button will then cause the unselected cards to be discarded and replaced with fresh cards from the deck. A winning hand will then be calculated from the current cards and paid out accordingly.
