Video Poker Strategy

Double Bonus Poker machine


Double Double Bonus Video Poker Picture


Below is a proper basic strategy chart for a video poker machine with a minimum payout for a pair of Jacks or better which pays 10 coins for a full house and 7 coins for a flush plus bonus payouts for four 2's, 3's or 4's and Aces. The Expected Value column on the right is the mathematically computed number that represents what you can expect to win in the long run based on the initial five cards dealt when playing five coins. Players should always choose the highest expected value for every hand and draw replacement cards accordingly.
