Pay Schedules Make all the Difference
in Video Poker
When it comes to playing online
video poker there can be a major difference in how much
money you get back based on the pay schedules or what
are also referred to as pay tables. Let’s look
at just how important they are.
Selecting the best pay schedule
is so important that it can save you a lot of money.
Let’s look at some examples. Let’s say you
are playing a Jacks or Better Video Poker machine that
has a 9/6 payout. You would have a return of over 99%.
If you played on a Jacks or Better machine that had
an 8/5 pay schedule your return would be just over 97%.
That is a 2% difference which is huge in the long run
in video poker. And it doesn’t matter if you play
perfect strategy or not, that 2% is going to affect
you in the long run. Let’s say that you play a
lot of video poker and put in $750 per hour. That extra
2% is $15. That money adds up quickly.
You simply must shop the pay
schedules when you play online video poker. You don’t
want to be playing for anything less than the best possible
returns. The pay tables are displayed on each of the
games you play so learn to recognize the best ones.
Also, don’t forget to play the maximum coins so
you always have a chance to win the jackpot.
