Video Poker Tips

So you like playing video poker? Who doesn’t? Let me ask you though, how many times have you won?  If you are hesitating on answering that question, let me share some tips with you.  These tips just might help you win more in video poker.

Tip #1:  Know your machine
Video poker machines are made differently.  It is not a one size fits all thing.  As such, before you sit down and play, find out all that you can about a particular machine.  That way, you know exactly how to play.

Tip #2:  Look for full play machines
What are full play machines?  As mentioned above, various video poker machines have different pay out odds.  What you should look for are those machines which offer a payout of 9 to 1 for a full house and 6 to 1 for a flush.  According to experts, these machines pay out 99 percent of whatever money they receive.  That simply means that you have better chances of winning!

Tip #3:  Don’t be stingy – play for the maximum number of coins
There are a couple of reasons for this tip.  One, if you get a royal flush, your payout increases exponentially if you play with the maximum number of coins (usually this is 5).  You may argue that the chances of getting a royal flush are low.  True, but then, what if you do get one?  Two, you will not get the progressive jackpot if you do not play with the maximum number of coins.  Naturally, this second reason applies to progressive video poker machines only.
