Video poker games were created during the 1980s, in response to the enormous advance of technology made in the casino industry. At about that time, personal computers were just becoming a reality, with many new ways emerging for players to take advantage of the exciting developments made in the business. The earliest video poker game was Draw Poker, and by the standards of today’s games, would appear fairly primitive. These days there are hundreds of different video poker variations, and new games are still being released. Generally video poker games can be played in both single and multi hand versions, and there are different credit denominations that can be used. Most video poker games have rules easy to understand and learn, as they show many similarities to the traditional form of poker.
