Video Poker Strategy

 Jokers Wild Machines

This month we are going to look at another fairly popular Video Poker machine called Jokers Wild. This machine uses a 53 card deck containing one wild joker. These machines offer a "give and take" compared to standard 10's or better type machines. Because of the extra wild card, it is easier to get really good hands such as a Royal Flush. To make up for this, the casinos made the minimum hand needed just to get your money back is two pair! So the decision is; If you want to go for the big payoffs, then this is the machine for you. If your like me and like to win on smaller hands, then stay with the 10's or better machines!

 

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