There are several video poker games online and in land based casinos. Choosing one to play can be a little tough, especially if you are not used to playing these games. In One Eyed Jacks video poker there are some special things you need to know before we talk about strategy.

  • One eyed jacks are going to be wild in this game.
  • The rules for one eyed jacks are similar to the Jacks or Better variation.
    In other words with jacks or better you need to have a pair of jacks or better in order to get a payout.
  • Since this is video poker you are playing against a random program, which means you can't guess what cards are going to come next. There is no pattern. So a pattern strategy isn't going to be applicable to this game.
  • All other jacks in one eyed jacks are a regular card. There are only two one eyed jacks in the video poker game.

Now that we know the rules of video poker for One Eyed Jacks lets talk about the strategy. We mentioned that you are not able to use usual strategies in poker. Therefore, you need to use other options. When you play video poker to get the jackpots or bonus games you need to bet the max coins.

You are also going to be working on getting the cards you need to get a poker hand that will win on the payouts. In One Eyed Jacks you are able to trade in the cards you don't want once. That helps you to get a better poker hand.

For example say you have the ten, ace, king, jack, and a deuce. You are one card away from having a royal flush. This means you would want to trade in the deuce to try and get that last card. There are of course other potentials in which you may not get the card you need, but something that offers a winning pair.

Basically in this strategy article we are telling you the cards are going to make the difference between winning and losing. You shouldn't be looking for patterns, blowing on a coin for luck, or other little things you might believe will work.

The wager you place on each round should be the same. You don't want to raise the bet when you are losing or lower the bet when you are winning as in the Martingale strategy. It is not going to help you come out with more winnings, but less.

When you know the rules of the video poker game, any game you have a leg up on the game. These rules tell you the options and how to play. If you aren't sure what is wild you could end up throwing away the wrong card. As you can see the strategy is pretty basic for video poker, kind of like the strategy for slot machines and other games you'll find in casinos.
