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.
