Low Limit Video Poker
Get the chance to win a huge payout from a small bet.
Video poker is quickly becoming the go-to casino game and it provides a combination of advantages which other games don’t offer. For starters, it is just one of a handful of casino games which can be improved with basic strategy. For this, low limit video poker provides the ideal training ground while still having plenty of potential to offer a significant payout. While the bets might be small, a Royal Flush is worth up to 4,000 times the initial wager.
To make it even more appealing, there are different titles which fit in the video poker category and they all come with something special. Some of the most popular variants are Jacks or Better, Tens or Better, Aces and Faces and Deuces Wild.
Since the game combines slots and poker, it is played on a machine and it doesn’t require any more players or even a dealer. Those with poker experience can use their skills in video poker to get a nice advantage since the odds and decisions required are very similar with Five-Card Draw Poker. However, even without poker experience, one can quickly learn the ropes at the low limit machines, without having to invest a large sum of money.
The objective of the game is to get a winning hand, with bigger payouts for rare combinations. After placing a bet and getting five cards, the player can discard any of them in exchange for new cards with the objective of improving the hand. This decision requires some poker knowledge in order to know which cards to keep but the freedom provided by low limit video poker allows for one or two mistakes without taking a big hit to the bankroll.
As you become more familiar with the game and sharper your skills at the low limit games, you will feel confident enough to try out the higher limits. As a general rule of thumb for video poker, it is best to opt for the maximum bet on a machine, out of the five available. This is because the payout for the big prize increases significantly for the max bet, from 1,000 for 4 coins to 4,000 for five coins.
