With the rise in popularity of online poker games, it was only a matter of time before someone worked out a way of improving the player’s experience. Five Draw Poker, as its name might suggest, allows players to play five different hands of poker all at once. The game was developed by the team at IGT, who have a track record of releasing great poker games.
That isn’t all the game has to offer though. As well as standard poker, it also has a range of other different variations that players can play. Five Draw Poker has a total of nine different games that players can choose from.
Five Draw Poker doesn’t have any promotions or special offers as such, but the ability to play each game with five hands is, in many ways, a bonus feature within itself.
Versions of poker
The nine versions of poker that are playable in the game include Jacks or Better, Bonus Poker, Bonus Poker Deluxe, Double Bonus Poker, Double Double Bonus Poker, Triple Double Bonus Poker, Deuces Wild, Deuces Wild Bonus, Joker Poker, and Five Play Video Poker. All of these games can be played using five hands, and each game comes with its own paytable and set of rules.
Playing Five Draw Poker is fairly straight forward, even if you have little to no experience of playing poker before.
On the game board, press deal to receive your five hands. You can then switch between active hands by pressing buttons 1 to 5. If you press draw, then you will receive replacement cards for your selected hands. Once you are happy with this, winning hands will then be paid according to the game’s respective paytable.
You can adjust your stake for the game by clicking on the bet per hand option at the bottom of the screen. Remember, this is going to be multiplied by five, so keep an eye on what the total stake is at the bottom of the screen as well.
One of the reasons this game has become as popular as it is is because the house edge in the game is fairly low. You can also learn strategy for playing each of these games and in doing so, reduce the house edge to around 1%, which can be hugely beneficial.

Five Draw Poker can be played anytime, anywhere using mobile devices. The game is available at several online casinos and is supported by both Android and IOS operating systems.
