Choosing between keeping or giving back one or several cards does not represent the most consequential decision.
Selecting a machine requires genuine attention and different versions exist: Triple Play, Jacks or Better, Double Bonus, All American Poker, Joker Wild, Deuces Wild...
The return on machines
The main goal is to select the machine offering the most interesting return. The latter is valued according to the profits generated by a Straight or a Full House for a credit you bet.
A machine offering a return of 9/6 means that the Full House yields 9 units and the Straight offers 6 units for one credit. Conversely, a machine showcasing a return of 8/5 indicates a Full House of 8 units and a Straight of 5 units.
The opportunity to get a more important jackpot
When analysing the different video poker machines present within the casino, the player can very well stop on a progressive machine.
Those offering a fixed jackpot are called Flat Top and the return for a Straight is always the same.
The Jacks or Better machines
This is a very simple version of video poker that is particularly appreciated by beginners. It is defined as classic, but the best bets you can find within a casino are offered by this machine.
Its name comes from the necessity to get a pair of Jacks to make a profit.
