Video Poker Strategy

 Jacks or Better

And

Tens or Better Machines

I
   I thought that I would start my webpage with the generaly accepted strategy for jacks or better and ten's or better machines (which are the two most common Video Poker machines in the world.)

Jacks or Better Machines: Jacks or Better machines are the most common Video poker machines in the world, and can be found almost anywhere there is legal gambling. Only play Jacks or Better machines that pay out at least 9 coins on a full house and 6 coins on a flush (unless it's a progressive machine).

Ten's or Better Machines: Tens or Better machines are almost exactly the same as Jacks or Better machines except you only need a pair of tens to be paid on these machines! To make up for this extra payoff, the machine will pay less for a flush and a full house. The strategy that you use on a Tens or Better machine is the exact same strategy that you would use on a Jacks or better machine so the following chart will work for both types of machines!

 

When playing video poker, always bet the maximum 5 coins and play the highest hand listed on the following chart!
