All American Poker is fairly simple to play. There are no wild cards involved in this game; the cards you are dealt are the regular cards from a standard card deck. Basic strategy is involved in figuring out the cards you should hold from the 5-card hand you are dealt and the ones you should discard. The payout table is present on-screen to help you familiarize yourself with the different winning hands - Jacks or Better, 2 Pair, 3 of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, 4 of a Kind, Straight Flush, and Royal Flush - and their respective payouts.
The first step is to place your bets. You can decide on the number of coins you want to play and the size of your bet. The Bet One button increases the number of coins you are betting by one, while the Bet Max button places the maximum wager directly. The minimum bet in this game is 25p and the maximum bet is £25.
Once you have placed your bets you click the Deal button; you are dealt a 5-card hand. Based on the cards you have and the best probable hand you can put together, you hold some of the cards in the hand and discard the rest by clicking the Draw button. The discarded cards are replaced by fresh cards and that becomes your final hand. The amount you win depends on the strength of your final hand. The high prize in this game is a potential 4000-coin jackpot; you get this when you hit a Royal Flush with a 5-coin wager.
