Here is a simple run-down of the rules of our Video Poker game!
Cards are ranked, from highest to lowest:
(Ace can count as either low or high. See "Royal Flush"'s scoring, below.)
When you are dealt replacement cards for your discards, your new hand is
evaulated. Based on what kind of hand you're holding, you'll receive
a certain number of points.

Hands are listed below, from best (highest scoring), to worst (no score):
- Royal Flush - 2000 points
A straight flush, with the Ace high.
In other words, a Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, all of the same suit.
- Straight Flush - 250 points
A straight flush.
In other words, all five cards are consecutive and are the same suit.
For example: Three of Clubs, Four of Clubs, Five of Clubs, Six of Clubs
and Seven of Clubs.
- Four of a Kind - 125 points
Four cards of the same value. (Obviously, each of different suits.)
- Full House - 40 points
A three of a kind and a pair at the same time.
- Flush - x 25 points
All cards in your hand are the same suit.
- Straight - 20 points
All five cards are consecutive.
For example: Three of Clubs, Four of Spades, Five of Clubs, Six of
Diamonds, and Seven of Hearts.
- Three of a Kind - 15 points
Three cards of the same value.
- Two Pair - 10 points
Two pairs of cards.
In other words, two cards in your hand are the same value, and two other
cards in your hand are also the same value.
- Pair - 5 points
Two cards in your hand are the same value. In this version, they must
be Jacks or better!
- None of the Above - 0 points
Each turn "costs" 5 points, so if you get a pair, no points actually end
up added to your total score. If you don't get anything, you actually
lose five points! This is just how handheld and Vegas video poker
