So, what is video poker and jackpot in it? It is a computerized version of a land poker and it is played on a console, which is a lot like a slot machine. The first samples were so simple, that now a lot of people would say how primitive they were. They appeared in the 70s.
In the 80s this type of game became so popular with the crowds that the casinos had much profit from it. The players started playing it a lot, as the machine was not as horrible as the live game. None is looking into your eyes. You are all by yourself. One more reason, why it became so attractive for the gamblers, was that the machines were of lower denomination and the odds were way better.
