Video poker is an easy game to learn to play well, so do take the time to understand the general draw technique, as well as the best electronic poker machines to bet on. Also, the hints below will provide you a better opportunity of succeeding and overall make the game more entertaining.

  • Do not keep a kicker (a backup card, often an ace) with a two of a kind. This decreases your chances of getting a three of a kind.
  • Make sure that the "hold" button illuminates for each card you are wanting to keep before pressing the draw button.
  • Be sure the video poker machine utilizes a "hold" button. Most do, but a few use a "discard" button as a substitute, where you denote the cards you want to throw away by hitting the button instead of the cards you would like to keep.
  • Take your time and consult the draw chart provided above for every hand. One of the key advantages of gambling on a video poker machine is that nobody will push you. Use all the time you want. Ponder each hand through, enjoy a drink, the machine will always remain there waiting!
  • If you are a amateur, select the lowest valued machine you are able to discover and gamble on it until you are accustomed and comfortable with the drawing strategy.

Follow these tricks and your cash will stay for a longer time and you just might be the one to get that six hundred thousand to one odds royal flush!
