Video Poker Tips

If you love poker, you will want to try out the video variation.  Video poker can be played either online or at a land based casino.  But regardless of where you are playing, there are a few tips that you will want to remember.

1. Before you start playing at any video poker machine, make sure that you check the payout schedule.  In other words, make sure that you know how much money you can win during any given game.  By knowing the payout schedule, you will know what you will win for every hand, as well as how much you need to bet in order to win that amount.  The bottom line is that instead of simply putting money into the machine and getting started, you will want to make sure that you know how much you can win with each bet.

2. A lot of people that play online video poker will not bet the max amount of coins because they want their money to last longer.  And even though your time at the site may last longer when you bet less on each hand, you will never give yourself the best chance of winning the big pot.  The more you bet, the more you will win.  For example, a full house is going to pay out much more on a max bet than it will on a one coin bet.  Keep this in mind when you are placing your bet on each hand.

3. Do not make the common mistake of trying to play the game at a fast pace.  Remember, you are the only one at the machine.  There is nobody else at the table waiting for you to make your next move.  This means that you can take as long as you want to analyze your cards and decide if you want more.  Never feel rushed!

4. Win it comes to being successful at online video poker, you must remember that there is a lot of luck involved.  You are playing against a machine, and they are dealing the cards.  It is not like playing against other players where you can bluff and read their faces.

5. If you are not familiar with how online video poker works, try out a free game or two before you move on to the paid games.  Almost every online casino will have a free video poker game that you can take advantage of.  By doing this you will be able to decide if video poker is right for you, while also getting your bearings straight.
