The software provider Top Game offers video poker games as a separate games category at its online casinos. These can be accessed through the Video Poker button in the casino lobbies. Top Game online casinos have only four variants of video poker, but the most common ones are covered. The variants are Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Deuces and Joker and Joker Poker. The games are available in single hand formats only. All the variants employ similar game play mechanisms.

As is the usual practice the operating buttons are placed at the bottom of the screen. The coin size ranges from $0.05 to $5.00 in selected steps. Players can wager up to five coins. The number of coins can be selected using the Bet One button. The payout tables for one to five coins are displayed on the top of the screen. The relevant payout table gets highlighted. Players who want to wager the maximum of five coins can use the Bet Max button. The total amount wagered is displayed in the Bet cell.

The game is activated by clicking on the Deal button. Five cards are dealt face up on the screen. The cards that should be held according to the optimum Jacks or Better strategy are automatically marked hold. If the player wants to keep a different combination of cards then he can deselect the held cards and put different cards on hold by clicking on the cards or the Hold buttons below the cards. Then by clicking on the Draw button the remaining cards are replaced. Simultaneously the payouts are calculated if the player draws a winning combination and this amount is shown in the Win cell. For the convenience of the player the cards that form the winning combination are highlighted and so is the hand ranking in the payout table.

If the player has received a payout he has the option to collect it by clicking on the Collect button. This ends the game. Alternatively the player can try to double the payout by clicking on the Double button. In that event one card is dealt face up and four cards are dealt face down. The player has to select one of the face down cards. If it is ranked higher than the face up card then the player's staked payout is doubled. If it is lower, then the player loses the payout. In the event of a tie the player is given the same choices again. The expected payout in the event of the player being successful is displayed on the screen. The player can activate this game again if he wins.

Jacks or Better is played with a standard deck and the payout table begins with jacks or better hand ranking. Joker Poker is played with a standard deck with a joker added. The joker acts as a wild card. The payout table begins with kings or better hand ranking. Deuces Wild is played with a standard deck, but all twos act as wild cards. The payout table begins with three of a kind hand ranking. In Deuces and Joker, the joker and twos are wild cards. The payout table begins with three of a kind and a special hand ranking of four deuces and a joker pays out 10,000 coins with five coins wagered. All these video poker variants can be played at Top Game online casinos like Rome Casino and Diceland Casino.
