Video Poker Strategy

Online video poker is a game of chance with strategic possibilities. Here are some strategic principles you can apply to raise your game.

  • Study the Pay Table: Each variant of video poker has its own pay table that will help you understand which are the best hands to play, so get to know it well.
  • Learn the poker hand rankings: In ascending order of value, a pair of jacks of better, any two pair, three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush, royal flush.
  • Set a budget: Put aside money for a bankroll, set a loss limit, and stick to it. Walk away if you deplete it.
  • Play max coins: Make the most of video poker’s big payout opportunities and play the most coins possible. Tailor the value of your coins to your budget.
  • Practice with free games: Play as many hands in demo mode as you need to understand the game before betting real money.
  • Know when to break a high pair: A pair of jacks will win you a payout but what if you’re one card away from making a straight flush or even a royal flush? These hands pay out much more than a pair so you may benefit from discarding one of the paired cards to chase the flush.
  • Use a video poker strategy chart: Also known as a video poker strategy card, a chart helps you choose which cards to keep. It makes it easier to make decisions and helps you avoid making costly mistakes. Each video poker variant has its own strategy chart.

How to Play Video Poker Online

It’s easy to grasp the basics of video poker. The aim of the game is to build the best possible five-card poker hand to win a payout according to the pay table. After placing a bet, you’re dealt five cards. After studying the cards, you get one chance to swap out cards to form a better hand. Your final hand is revealed and if it’s on the paytable, your winnings are credited to your account.

When it comes to bets, you can bet up to 5 coins. Your potential payouts vary according to the number of coins in play and the value you’ve assigned your coins (from $0.10 to $100). For example, a royal flush will pay out 250x, 500x, 750x, 1,000x and 4,000x for 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 coins respectively.
