Progressive Video Poker
Video poker is undoubtedly one of the most popular online casino genres around, sharing a large portion of the casino community with online slots. As with a number of casino games nowadays, video poker has taken on a progressive variation of its own, allowing players the chance to win lucrative cash jackpots on the best winning combinations.
The video poker games themselves don't necessarily change, but the payout structure does vary from game to game. Depending on where and what you choose to play, some video poker games may offer a few thousand dollars of jackpot cash, while others may be linked with a variety of games and boast a progressive in excess of one million dollars.
Similar to other progressive genres, most video poker jackpots are part of a bank of a dozen or so other games. This means that this group of games all feed a percentage of their wagered amounts into the progressive pool; from there, a winning video poker hands win a portion - or sometimes even the entire pot - of the progressive jackpot.
