There are 3 simple types of video poker machines:

* Jacks or Better

* Deuces Wild

* Jokers Wild

To keep things basic, we recommend you bet on only the Jacks or Better machines. The pay outs are usually better and also the draw system is more straightforward.

What you’re really searching for can be a Jacks or Greater device with a great pay-out table. The best pay-out table pays 9 to One for full home and 6 to 1 for a flush. In gambler’s terms, this can be called a "Nine-Six" device, for obvious reasons. Numerous years ago, you could find various of these in most casinos, but they are now extremely hard to uncover simply because of the favorable (to you, not the house!) pay-out schedule.

Regularly, the ideal pay-out you will be able to find is the next finest a single, which pays 8 to 1 for a complete house and 5 to 1 for any flush. Even so, this is a great payout schedule if it’s also a "4-of-a-kind" bonus machine. A bonus machine pays extra odds for hitting four-of-a- sort for certain cards, like Twos, 3s, or 4s, or 3 other cards. The payout table has this information, so be sure to read the payout schedule meticulously before you bet on any device.

Be certain to avoid machines that only pay 1 to One for 2 pairs. This should be the pay-out for a single pair of jacks or better. Two pair ought to pay Two to 1. You cash will go much faster if two pairs pays just 1 to 1.

Look for these payout tables and you will be betting with house advantage against you of 1 or 2percent – some on the best odds within the casino.
