Video poker lovers perfectly know that all video poker variations are different. Such unpredictability makes playing more inetersting and exciting: winning streaks give place to unlucky streaks.
The player’s main goal is to prevent such periods from lasting too long and making a breach in their balance. There are some tips and recommendations for video poker players.
In this article, we will talk about major principles that encourage success in video poker.
The only things real and video poker have in common are card games and combinations. In other aspects, these two types differ completely.
Due to lack of experience, lots of novice players attach too much significance to aces. This is a mistake, though. In many variations of video poker, this suit isn’t the strongest. Very often, Straight is more important and harder to gather. Usually, A, 2,3,4,5 and A, K, Q, J, 10 combinations include an ace. Remember that J and 10 suits will allow you to gather much more of such combinations, which is the reason why we should get rid of aces. Note that some video poker variations have unpaid pairs.
Sometimes, strong cards are not included in a combination. If this is the case, you should get rid of them. However, some inexperienced players prefer to keep them, to be on the safe side. You shouldn’t do this, because you can lose a well-paid combination.
Rather often, pairs are paid equally, regardless of a suit, i.e. for a pair of jacks you will get the same amount as for a pair of aces. All information is presented in tables of payouts.
Such tactics is rather popular at top online casinos. Even if you don’t have enough cards, you can gather them during the game.
We hope that these recommendations will help you become a more successful gambler.
