The Video Poker Playing Strategy that will help you win at
this game is very different to that which we use in the common
poker games we play with our friends.
When playing video poker, we must constantly aim for the five
coin royal flush.
In Video Poker this comes up once in about
thirty thousand hands. Woopie! Hang about you say! I'll be
broke long before then!
Along the way you will pick up other prizes to stretch your
If you look at the payout figures for these machines, the
five coin play returns at least five times the single coin
payout. Yes, you say, it dam well cost me five times more
When you hit a modestly reasonable prize, the payout is 16
times the single coin payout.
It is these odds that give you the chance to beat the machine.
On average, if you play single coins, you will always end
up loosing because when you do win, the prize is too small
to cover your losses. Of course, there is that super lucky
scenario which in my case, always seems to happen for some
one else. In the first one to three goes out falls a big prize.
Just think how much more it would be if five coins were played
instead of one!
In Video Poker we must concentrate on the Royal Flush. By
using this strategy it will come up more frequently than what
it does in our social games and in such games I have won hands
with nothing more than a pair of duces which pay nothing in
The reason we advocate playing five coins is this -
one coin for a royal flush usually pays 250 coins
two coins for a royal flush usually pays 500 coins
three coins for a royal flush usually pays 750 coins
four coins for a royal flush usually pays 1000 coins and
five coins for a royal flush usually pays 4,000 coins
so for an extral coin we get an extra 3,000 coins.
That is why we hunt the big one and why we look for the casino
with the best payouts!
Of course along the way you will pick up other prizes. None
of them are as good as this one but they all have the same
thing in common. The pay out for five coins is always better
than what it is for any other coin combination.
That is the crux of our Video Poker Playing Strategy. Good
