This game simulates the Video Poker games found in Casinos everywhere. I myself made a version back in '89, inspired by one of my visits to the Estoril Casino, the famous WWII spy hangout Casino.
The game itself is rather faithful to the ones you used back in the 80's and 90's.
Not so sophisticated of course, and graphically simpler, but does the job very well. The main problem of course it's the laying out cards in each play, this makes the game seem slower.
