Playing Online Casino Games During the COVID-19 Virus

Posted on March 15, 2020 by John Harris

With travel restrictions impacting people all over the world due to the COVID-19 virus, many are looking for ways to pass the time. One fun way is to play casino games such as video poker, online slots and other types of online games. The cool thing about playing online is that there are sites available that you can play just for fun and others that you can play to win real money.

Poker is always a popular game and you can play video poker at New Zealand Casinos without actually being in New Zealand.

While there are many variations of video Poker, they have one thing in common: they’re all based on simple mechanics of five-card draw Poker. Video Poker uses a standard 52-card deck. After you make your wager and press the “Deal” button, the machine randomly gives you five cards. At this point, you need to choose which cards to keep and which cards to throw away or discard. Once you have made your pick, the computer will randomly replace the discarded cards.

In this exciting game, your winning is based on ending up with a Poker hand such as flush, straight, two pairs, or even a royal flush. Always keep in mind that the amount that you win per hand depends on the Poker value of your hand and the posted pay table of the site you’re playing.

One of the most important things to know on how to beat video Poker is that you have to make a wise decision on which of your dealt five cards to keep and which ones to discard. Making the right decision from the beginning will give you the best chances of winning even a Jackpot.

There are many tips available for playing online video poker, but here are a few:

  1. Know the Rules – be sure and check out all the rules related to video poker before starting to play
  2. Always Play the Maximum Bet – you don’t want to have a winning hand and not fully capitalize due to not betting adequately
  3. Slow Down – You don’t have to play fast. Take your time and think before making each play
  4. Be Prepared – If you are playing with real money, make sure you have gone online and played some practice hands at no stakes sites before hitting a betting site
  5. Know Your Limits – If betting is your thing, don’t get too caught up in the game that you spend more money than you are prepared to lose

Another place you can find fun games to play is the online casino zed Canada. With an abundance of different games available, you can surely find something that you enjoy.

Good luck staying safe from the COVID-19 virus and have fun playing casino games.
