QUICK TIPS ON VIDEO POKER - 2020 edition


Video poker games that you find in land based casinos are the same computer games in cabinet that you find at online casinos. Video poker sometimes confused with slots because both are video games and looking similar.

Video poker requires far more thought and strategy than slot games. Some tips to improve your odds of success are:

Resist the temptation to hold on to a kicker. Holding an unpaired card with a pair adds no value to your hand.
Drawing an outside straight (5,6,7,8) is far and away easier than waiting to draw an inside straight (5,6,_,8,9). Allowing yourself to wait for a draw on an outside straight allows you to complete your hand by getting the card you need on either end.

Jacks or Better has an easy-to-understand strategy that makes it the game best suited to players new to Video Poker. Higher payouts such as 9/6 for Jacks or Better and 9/5 for Deuces Wild offer the best payouts for players.
Never hold three cards in an attempt to get a straight or flush.

Playing more coins increases the payouts on winning hands
