Is there really a strategy to Video Poker?

Play Video Poker at Casino Tropez

First we'll start by saying that the best Video Poker action you can get is undoubtedly at Casino Tropez, but before we'll get into why; let's look more closely at the game itself.

It's funny that some people think that Video Poker is a mere Slots game, when there is more to the game than simply dropping in some coins and hoping that you hit a winning combination.

The first thing to take note of is the House Edge. Video Poker online has one of the lowest house edge of nearly all casino games, including Slots, averaging at almost 0.5%. Next, and most importantly, Video Poker does require some measure of skill, mainly because of the Poker aspect of it. The object of Video Poker is to make a winning Poker hand by discarding unnecessary cards or cards that aren't beneficial to the hand you want to make and replacing them with possible winners. Winning hands depends on the type of Video Poker game you're playing. Our recommended Video Poker game is Deuces Wild, because it is one of the more exciting Video Poker variants. The Wild deuces give you more ways to win lots of money and hands that were not possible previously, suddenly become possible. Deuces Wild is played just as is any other Video Poker game. You Hold as many cards as you wish by pressing the Hold button beneath each card or, in some cases by clicking on the card itself. To discard unwanted cards, you simply press the Draw button after you've held the cards of your choice. If the new hand contains a winning combination, you are paid out according to the Payout schedule. In Deuces Wild, the 2s or deuces can be substituted for any card in the deck.
