Electronic poker is an easy game to learn to play well, so take some time to learn the basic draw tactic, as well as the greatest machines to play. Also, the hints below will give you a greater chance of winning and above all make the game more fun.

  • Do not hold onto a kicker (an extra card, generally an ace) with any two of a kind. This lessens your odds of drawing a three of a kind.
  • Be sure that the "hold" button illuminates for each card you would like to keep before pressing the draw button.
  • Make certain the video poker machine utilizes a "hold" button. Almost all do, but a few use a "discard" button as a substitute, where you indicate the cards you want to throw away by hitting the button instead of the cards you would like to hold.
  • Take your time and look at the draw table provided above for each hand. One of the key advantages of playing a machine is that nobody will rush you. Use all the time you want. Think each hand through, have a drink, the machine will always sit there waiting!
  • If you are a apprentice, pick the lowest valued machine you are able to discover and play on it until you’re accustomed and comfortable with the drawing technique.

Adhere to these tips and your bankroll will last longer and you just might be the player to get that six hundred thousand to 1 odds royal flush!
