Hollywood Casino at Penn National video poker

Video poker is mostly concentrated in one section of the casino floor towards the back left and in the high limit slots room. Our top pick is $1, $2, $5 and $10 7/5 Bonus Poker. I hit a straight flush on the first hand I played on one of these machines in high limit after deciding it was the video poker best bet at Hollywood Casino Penn National. The same machines have 9/5 Double Double and 9/6/5 Double Bonus. 

The single line video poker on the floor starts at quarter. The $1 machines on the floor have the same pay tables as the high limit ones. Some of the quarter games have progressives. It is the typical library of titles. 

Video poker variants include Hot Roll, Ultimate X, Spin Poker, Super Times Pay, Double Super Times Pay, Pick’em Poker and 3/5/10 play. The denominations run from nickel to quarter. Some have half-dollar with only three and five hands. The pay tables improve at quarter.
