The layout of this video poker game is quite involved, but once properly broken down is very simple to understand. The background for this video poker game is a navy blue background with playing card suits displayed. The playing card suits that are displayed in this background include hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds.

Under that, the player can increase and decrease their online betting amount by pushing the yellow arrows that are pointing to the left and to the right. As the player increases or decreases the betting amount, there is a sound cue that goes along with it. Under that is the number of credits the player has won. Below that is the number of coins played and under that is the total coins played. Under this is a red digital display box that shows how many credits the player has left.
There are also three buttons that are at the bottom of the playing screen. The first of these buttons is the blue bet one button. The blue bet one button, when pushed, increases the number of coins played by the player. It ranges from one, being the lowest, to five, which is the highest. There is also a sound cue for this action. To the right of that is the deal button. When the player pushes the orange deal button, the first hand is dealt to them. This button then turns into the draw button. To the right of that is the green bet max button.
