Used Video Poker Machines

Fifty years ago, only International Gaming Technology (IGT) envisioned the potential of video poker machines. Today video poker machines represent the largest segment of games in most casinos. Bally has joined the ranks of IGT. Together these companies produce the lion's share of all video poker machines. The popularity of video poker stems from the skill required to play it as well as the high returns received. Payouts for video poker are the highest on the casino floor.

The growth of video poker machines in casinos has fueled a corresponding growth in the sale of used video poker machines for home use. People purchase used video poker machines for purely recreational purposes as well as to sharpen their skills for casino visits. Most machines are based on the simple five card draw format. Still, there are hundreds of different game formats from which to choose.

A Short Primer on Formats for Used Video Poker Machines

Used video poker machines can be as simple as a screen with five cards and buttons to keep or discard cards. There are other games that allow a player to have multiple hands with interchangeable cards. Poker purists may object to some of these formats which can sometimes end up with five aces in one hand. Many machines have multiple varieties of poker on them; some even include other games like blackjack.
