Video Poker Slots are the best odds game for a player that enjoys the personal confines of a slot machine, not a blackjack or poker table. But when looking for the right machine, you need to look for the best odds machine which will be found in the video poker legend.
The legend is found just above the cards on the screen. It will show you what the odds of the game are by looking at the “Full House” and the “Flush” payouts. You only want to pay attention to these two indicators when one coin is registered.
The best possible payout would be what is called a 10-7 video poker slot machine. That is a 10 is next to the “Full House” and a 7 next to the “Flush” on the legend. This is a payback percentage of 100%. More likely to be found are the 9-6 video pokers or less. A Hokiplay is around 99% payback while the 8-5 are 97.3%. Typically you can find the higher payback video poker machines on a bar top in the casino, but this is not always the case.
You also need to remember that a machine with a payback percentage of 100% or any percent is based on perfect play. Perfect play is considered while playing all the odds so you get the best cards dealt to you at the right time and making the right decisions while playing.
Just because you are playing a 97% payback or higher machine, doesn’t mean you will win, it helps increase your odds of winning. Use these simple rules when choosing your next game of poker for your home game room or at the casino, along with making sure it is a single deck of 52 cards and you will find yourself well on the way to winning.
