Description

Raw Poker is a single-player, mouse controlled simulation of the popular casino machine. It appears in some of eGames compilations including Casino Jackpot 2 which is where this version of the game comes from.

As in a standard poker game the aim of the game is to make the best 5-card hand. Unlike other forms of poker the player does not win by beating other players but by compiling a hand that exceeds the game's minimum hand, which in this case is a pair of jacks, to score.

Raw Poker starts with the player being given four game credits which, as the game implies, allows the player to play four games. For every winning hand the player is given both points and additional credits. Raw Poker ends either when the player runs out of game credits or when thirteen hands have been played. Each game consists of two deals, the player is dealt five cards and they can hold/discard any of these. A second deal is then made to replace the discarded cards and the hand is evaluated. If the hand scores a pair of jacks or higher then the player is paid.

This game has both sound effects sound and high score table.
