Electronic poker is an easy game to discover how to play with skill, so do take the time to learn the basic draw technique, as well as the greatest video poker machines to play. In addition, the hints below will give you a better opportunity of winning and overall make the game more enjoyable.

  • Do not maintain a kicker (an extra card, generally an ace) with a two of a kind. This lowers your chances of drawing a 3 of a kind.
  • Be certain the "hold" button illuminates for all the cards you would like to keep before pushing the draw button.
  • Make certain the video poker machine has a "hold" button. Almost all do, but a couple use a "discard" button instead, where you denote the cards you wish to throw away by pushing the button instead of the cards you would like to keep.

  • If you are a newbie, pick the smallest denomination of video poker machine you can find and play on it until you are acquainted and comfortable with the drawing strategy.

Adhere to these pointers and your cash will last longer and you will be the player to get that six hundred thousand to 1 odds royal flush!
