Video poker introduction

Video poker from its entry into the casino in the 70s and is one of the most popular forms of gambling today. For those gamblers who like a game of ability, a small house edge, the possibility of big wins, and the anonymity of playing alone there is nothing else that compares to video poker. The rules of video poker are simple; they play 1 to 5 coins, the machine give you five cards you choose, which to hold and which to discard, the machine replaces your discards and pays them according to the value of your hand.

You may have heard the saying that "the house always has the advantage." Video poker is an exception to this rule. If you sign up for the Liberal Pay Tables, and play them properly, you can get a thin advantage. Some numbers, tables that are easy to put into the machine, can save you more than 100% if you factor in incentives like cash back, free play, mailings and other comps.


The following are the rules for standard video poker:

  • Most video poker games are played with a 52-card deck. Of course, Joker Wild is playing with one or more Jokers in the deck.
  • After you place a bet and press the "DEAL" button, the game will randomly give the player five cards from the deck.
  • The player chooses which cards to throw away and which to keep.
  • The game replaces the discarded cards with randomly selected cards remaining from the deck.
  • The player will pay depending on the value of his poker hand and the table.


  • Always play the maximum coins. I have never seen a machine that cannot be played with a bonus on the highest hand for five coins. If you are uncomfortable, play five coins, and then fall on a lower coin.
  • The cards are chosen at random and the games are fair. There are no switches inside the machine, the machine may be loose or stuck. Don't be fooled by the tabs, these are not real video poker games.
  • A royal flush can occur at any time with equal probability. A machine is never "overdue" in the sense that it is more likely to hit. Theories such as B. That a machine will be closely right before you are a royal just isn't true.
  • Always use a slot club card if there is one, and usually it is. This is free money to play with, and can often make all the difference in an edge or not.
  • When you put the card in the slot club make sure that the game can be read. Check every few minutes to make sure the connection is not lost.
  • Research into where the most generous machines are. The best source in my opinion is the VP Insider; a site subscription costs $ 20 for the first three months, and $ 15 for each additional three months. The best free source in my opinion is the VP free.
  • Some games offer a double function. This, and the odds in craps, are just the bets you can make with no house edge. Whether or not you wager doubling should depend on your reason for gambling. If you want low volatility, with long "time" on the device, you should decline it. If you have a 100% +, it should refuse. If you want the high volatility, take it. If you want to maximize, including wagering money at double, then you should accept it. If you should, to what point can you ask? That is something you decide for yourself according to how much you value the risk and the reward.
  • Tipping in video poker, as well as any game, is one thing. I believe a good rule of thumb is 0.5% to 1.0% on a jackpot that has a hand. The smaller the jackpot, the larger the percentage. An exception can be for games where one hand pays off frequently, such as $ 5 10 games. In this case, only on big wins, or at the end of the session is acceptable. If lost badly, I wouldn't blame you if you didn't tip.
