Casino Games: Video Poker Tips (Part 2)
When talking casino games, video poker has amazing payout potential if you've mastered the game properly. How would you know if you are playing a winning game? It's easy if you have done your homework and know some basic tips on the game.
Keeping Cards Intact
For instance, there are some casino games players who tend to split up hands they have received. If you were to break up full house, you would be a loser. It is also not advisable to split flush even though you can draw the cards with it. It is only prudent to break a flush if you can draw a card to make a royal. Why give up a winning hand when you know you have the best cards with you? And, even if you do, remember the consequences. An increased house edge is what you would incur by splitting hands, such as good pairs to get a flushes and straights.
Getting Rid of Cards
However, the above-mentioned point does have exceptions. In other words, you might have to do away with some cards and not exactly hold on to them. Consider an option where you have a pair. In this case, pass off the kicker. If you get rid of the kicker, you would not then lose 5 percent of your earnings. There are some more options as well where you need to get rid of the cards. For instance, consider a situation where you have a four-card draw. Do get rid of any tens as they can be harmful to you.
Drawing Cards as the Best Option
There are some casino games where a draw can be the only option to fetch best results. How would you know which situations are good enough for a draw? Situations where you are not holding a straight flush or you need to draw more than three cards to make a royal flush. Sometimes, you might be holding three honors of various suits. At that time, it is better to draw. If you have a low pair or three-card straight flush, it is always better to draw cards. However, for good hands such as hands having a Jack, do not draw cards.
Playing With the Maximum Number of Coins
Playing the full amount - usually with five coins - can work wonders if you win these casino games. The payout offered by some machines increases if you win a royal flush when playing with the maximum number of coins. Apart from getting a larger share of payout percentage, you would also be entitled to a progressive jackpot when you play the full amount. If you play a part of the amount, you would be disqualified for participating in the progressive jackpot slot machine games.
