Do you really like video poker? It sure is popular. I must admit, I’ve wagered thousands of hours of Video Poker over the years. Once I worked at a betting house where they allowed workers to wagering on any device throughout breaks. So, I used my breaks-including most lunches-hunched in front of a electronic poker machine.

But, what’s the point of wagering in the event you do not know what the hands are? Most machines tell you what hands pay, but they stop just shy of telling you what makes up a hand-something a lot of new gamblers are puzzled with. Here’s a rapid lowdown of all the possible paying hands for a nine/6 Jacks or Better machine.

Jacks or Better: When you might have two Jacks, Queens, Kings or Aces. It gives your money back.

Two Pair: Possessing two cards on 1 rank and two cards of an additional rank-such as 2 six’s and two Kings.

3 of the Type: Three cards of 1 rank.

Straight: Getting 5 cards in consecutive order, this kind of as a a couple of,3,4,five and 6. An Ace can be used ahead of the two or after the King.

Flush: Owning 5 cards all of the same match, such as five clubs.

Full House: Getting 3 cards of one fit and 2 cards of one more match, like 3 Kings and 2 Queens.

4 of the Type: Getting four cards of 1 rank, such as 4 Jacks.

Straight Flush: Possessing all five cards of the very same match and in sequential order, this kind of as the 3,four,five,six and 7 of diamonds.

Royal Flush: This is the big payday. I have been lucky sufficient to hit some. You could have a royal flush when all 5 cards are the identical fit and the 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace.

One tip before I go. Often bet on max coins. That’s the only way the jackpot for a royal flush opens up. When I 1st started betting I got a royal flush with just 1 coin in the device and getting just more than $60 when it could have been 1,000 dollars actually hurts.
