Be a smart shopper. Know your pay-tables.

The greatest thing about Video Poker is that you can actually see the "price" or financial return you can expect when playing the game. This is why in many cases, it is a "beatable" game and why it is always the best value for your gambling dollar.

Generally speaking, casinos "loosen" or "tighten" the return of a game by manipulating the number of coins won on certain pay categories, most often full houses, flushes and four-of-kinds. Straights and three-of-a-kinds also vary between games. In most games, the full house/flush numbers are the primary indicator of a machine's payback percentage and your key to whether that game is one you can exploit. You want to find the ones with the best returns so you can play longer and win more cash and comps.

In this Bonus Poker game example, you can see that for one coin bet, a full house pays 10 coins, a flush pays 8, and 3 of a kind pays 5. This is considered 10/8/5 game and the return will be 94.18%, which is one of the "tighter," lower returning games.

Games vary the size of the four-of-a-kind jackpots by paying less coins on the more frequent winning hands like straights and two pair. However, that's how players determine their favorite games. Do I want to play longer on a game like Jacks or Better or take a shot at a bigger jackpot as in the industry's most popular game, Double Double Bonus Poker? Most people who work at making money on video poker avoid volatile games like this one and prefer Jacks or Better. Others prefer Double Double for the gambling side of the game - it is a fun and wild ride.

You should always play the best pay-tables available. Typically, you will find bar games and sometimes multi-hand games a little tighter. You need to weigh the value of the payback returns and the "experience" you are seeking. You won't always make money on tighter games at a bar, but your trade-off is that you will get your free cocktails faster and get to see the game on TV. Serious video poker players, stay away from bars, booze and distractions and that's the key to making money playing video poker.

Remember, these returns and percentages are based on thousands of hands of video poker. Play what you want to, with the best pay-tables. And learn how to play the best games you can find by using a video poker software program or strategy cards. If you want to get serious about video poker beyond recreational play, then seek the assistance of a real pro.
