• Video Poker – Advice to Keep in Mind

    Video poker is a simple game to discover how to play well, so take some time to learn the basic draw technique, as well as the greatest machines to bet on. Also, the tips below will give you a better chance of winning and overall make the game more fun.

    • Never keep a kicker (a backup card, usually an ace) with a two of a kind. This decreases your odds of getting a three of a kind.
    • Make sure that the "hold" button lights up for all the cards you would like to keep before pushing the draw button.
    • Be sure the video poker machine uses a "hold" button. Almost all do, but a few use a "discard" button instead, where you indicate the cards you want to throw away by hitting the button instead of the cards you want to hold.
    • Take your time and look at the draw table given above for each hand. 1 of the advantages of playing a video poker machine is that no one will push you. Use all the time you need. Think every hand through, have a drink, the machine will constantly sit there waiting!
    • If you are a beginner, pick the lowest valued video poker machine you are able to discover and play on it until you’re familiar and comfortable with the drawing strategy.

    Abide by these hints and your money will last longer and you will be the one to hit that 600,000 to 1 odds royal flush!
