Video Poker History

The History of Video Poker can be traced back to the mid 1970’s with the advent of the PC age. Back then Video Poker Games consisted of nothing more than simple monitors hooked up to CPU’s (central processing units) and looked nothing like the Online Video Poker games available today. During the 80’s the leap forward in computer technology helped to create a growth in the Video Poker market in Las Vegas. This was due to the fact that better Video Poker games were now available that offered poker players a less pressurised poker environment to play in.

During the 90’s (and continuing until today) the rise of the internet has introduced a whole new generation of Video Poker Players to the game.
