Like to play electronic poker games? Walk into any betting house in Sin City and one thing you will immediately observe is that the betting houses spend a tonne of layout space on game machines. Much of that arrangement goes to electronic Poker. If you have bet on Video Poker for even a bit of time, you understand that not all machines were created the same. As the years have gone by, more and more "unique" video poker games have come into being. At this time, I am going to share a couple of my electronic Poker tricks, I belief you’ll love them.

Tip One: Finding a decent video poker machine

Finding a great game is as easy as looking at the pay out schedule. You really want to stay away from specialty pay machines that have bigger top payouts, but negate the lower pay outs. e.g., a game could pay a bit more on four of a kind, but might pay less on 2 pair, flushes and full houses. Since you will rack up smaller scale pay outs often, mainly because of the probability of acquiring these hands, you should be looking for a strong smaller scale payout system.

Hint Two: Playing strategy

Figuring out how to wager optimally is a must. Your wagering plan will, ultimately, decide your average return and your finishing bankroll value. Knowing what to do in a situation where you have, for example, 2 Kings, but 4 to the flush is vital. Do you keep the Kings and the assured cash or roll the dice for the harder to get flush? Playing a good machine with an excellent technique will provide you a fantastic opportunity to earn cash over the long run.

Tip 3: It’s random

Over the years, I have observed people bet on Video Poker in Vegas relying on all kinds of bizarre movements. Many will only use cold credits to bet, some will hit the buttons super hard, some will tap the machine with their money before gambling and the list continues on and on. Every hand is built by a RNG (Random Number Generator). The second you begin to gamble, the hand is set in rock. The machine will randomly select all the cards from a 52-card deck and hand them out.

Tip Four: There’s Absolutely no Recollection

This is a very important one. Most players believe that if they start to see hands with three of a kind, four to the royal and so forth that the better hands are about to hit. This is simply wrong. As pointed out in trick 3, the system uses a random number generator to setup the hands. The machine has absolutely no memory. It does not know that you haven’t received a full house in 400 hands or that you have just had three, 4 of a kind hands in sequence. It’s probable you could go 100,000 hands without a four of a kind and it’s plausible to receive ten in a row. The game doesn’t keep track, because in the end, the numbers work out.

I hope these pointers have helped you grow as a Video Poker player. Myths on how the game works can be far more deadly than merely playing wrong. I’ve observed people spend (and lose) a multitude of dollars on a machine merely because they believed the machine had a memory and was "due" to hit. Do not become trapped like this. Be aware that Video Poker is just luck and has to be wagered on correctly. Now, go enjoy yourself.
