How to Play Pick 'Em Poker
Pick 'Em Poker is a different kind of video poker game. After placing your bet and clicking on Draw Deal, the game deals out two single cards starting from the left and then two piles of cards that contain three cards each. After reviewing the two single cards, choose between these two piles of cards to build the best Poker hand based on the card on top of the pile and the two single cards. Once you select the pile of cards to keep, click Draw Deal to reveal the other cards in the pile and make up your final poker hand.
The final hand qualifies as a winning hand if it is at least a pair of 9's. Hands are ranked in order:
- Royal Flush: 10, J, Q, K, A of same suit
- Straight Flush: In sequence, 5 cards of same suit
- Four-of-a-Kind: 4 cards of same rank
- Full House: 3 of a kind, plus a pair
- Flush: Five cards of the same suit
- Straight: Five cards in sequence
- Three-of-a-Kind: 3 cards of same rank
- Two Pair: Two pairs of different rank
- 9s or Better: Two cards of the same rank (Nines or higher)
