Video Poker Introduction


The two main types of machines in casinos are slot machines and video poker machines. Slot machines tend to be more mundane. It’s simply a matter of dumping coins into the machine and hitting a button to see if you got lucky. Video Poker, on the other hand, rewards players that can think. There’s actually strategy involved in video poker. The game doesn’t have a steep learning curve. In fact, the basics can be learned in minutes.

If you have never played video poker before, let me give you one good piece of advice. Don’t play unless you can afford to play the maximum credits. That’s where the real money is made. I wish someone had told me that when I started out. I walked up to a quarter video poker machine, put in one quarter, and hit a royal flush. I got paid $62.50 for the quarter. However, had I played the maximum credits, just $1 more, I would have received $1,000. I lost $937.50, because I didn’t play $1 more. That’s a huge chunk of change to lose.

Playing video poker is pretty simple. First, you load credits into the machine-remember to always play the max. You are dealt a hand of five cards. All machines tell you what combinations you need to get a payout. After looking over your initial hand, you decide what cards, if any, to keep. When you hit deal again, new cards are given to you and your hand is now complete. Should your final combination warrant a payout, it will be paid now. While it’s rare to get a royal flush dealt to you on the first five cards, make sure you have all five cards held before hitting the deal button if this happens.

Video poker never gets boring. There are so many types of video poker games out there now. They all offer different payouts and many offers different ways to play the game entirely. For instance, there are different styles like traditional, Joker’s Wild, and Deuce’s Wild. There are also different payout methods like Bonus, Double Bonus, Triple Bonus, More for Four and so on. Before playing any machine look to see what the required paying combinations are and what they pay.

The best machine to play, from a consistency standpoint, is a 9/6 Jacks or Better machine. The 9/6 refers to the payout on a flush and full house. Not all Jacks and Better machines pay the same amount. Make sure yours is a 9/6 machine before playing. These machines give you the best bang for your buck. The 9/6 machine is known as a ‘full-pay’ machine. It’s named this because players are getting the best possible payout for their money. It’s no secret that a skilled video poker player can almost eliminate the house advantage by playing a 9/6 machine and using the proper strategy.
