Like to bet on electronic poker machines? Walk into any casino in Vegas and one element you will immediately notice is that the casinos spend a lot of layout space on game machines. A lot of that arrangement goes to Video Poker. If you have gambled on electronic Poker for even a bit of time, you understand that not all machines were created the same. As time has gone by, more and more "unique" video poker games have come into being. At this time, I am going to share a handful of my Video Poker hints, I belief you will enjoy them.

Hint One: Locating a decent video poker machine

Finding a good game is as simple as looking at the payment schedule. You really want to stay away from specialty pay games that have larger top pay outs, but negate the lower payouts. e.g., a machine could pay a little more on four of a kind, but might pay a lot less on 2 pair, flushes and full houses. Since you will rack up smaller scale payouts often, because of the chance of acquiring these hands, you should be looking for a good smaller scale pay out system.

Trick 2: Gambling strategy

Learning how to play properly is a must. Your wagering strategy will, in the long run, decide your average return and your finishing bank roll amount. Understanding what to do in a situation where you have, e.g., 2 Kings, but four to the flush is essential. Do you keep the Kings and the guaranteed cash or throw the dice for the difficult to hit flush? Playing a great machine with an excellent tactic will give you a great chance to win money over the long term.

Pointer 3: It is random

For a while, I have watched individuals gamble on Video Poker in Atlantic City employing all sorts of groundless actions. Some will just use cold tokens to gamble, some will depress the buttons super hard, some will hit the game with their cash before betting and the list just keeps going. Each hand is built by a random number generator. The instant you begin to play, the hand is set in rock. The machine will at random pick all the cards from a 52-card deck and hand them out.

Tip Four: There is Absolutely no memory

This is a big one. Most individuals figure that if they start to observe hands with 3 of a kind, 4 to the royal and so on that the bigger hands are due any moment. This is merely wrong. As described in trick 3, the process uses a RNG to create the hands. The machine has no recollection. It doesn’t have knowledge that you have not received a full house in four hundred hands or that you’ve just had 3, 4 of a kind hands in sequence. It’s conceivable you could go 100k hands and not receive a four of a kind and it is plausible to receive 10 in sequence. The game does not keep track, because at the end of it all, the numbers are a wash.

I hope these pointers have helped you develop as a Video Poker player. Myths on how the game works can be a whole lot more deadly than simply wagering incorrectly. I’ve watched players spend (and lose) hundreds of dollars on a game merely because they believed the machine had a memory and was "due" to hit. Don’t become trapped like this. Be aware that Video Poker is random and has to be played carefully. Now, go have some fun.
