Before starting, take time to choose your machine by comparing the gains- not all machines offer the same gains. If you can, play on a progressive machine which will land you a jackpot for a high ranking hand. Even if the odds are slim, it would be a shame to let it slip by.
If it is your first time, play on a machine allowing small deposits (20 cents) and bet only on dimes. Once you have become throughly acquainted with the machine as well as the game, you may then start betting on maximal amounts. First time players will be wise to play on a machine allowing for small deposits (for example, 20 cents) while betting on a maximum rather than play on a machine allowing for big deposits only (for example, one Euro) while betting on a minimum. As a general rule, once must always bet on a maximum. Once you have mastered your craft, you may try machines in which the the start off bet is much bigger.
The most important card in Video Poker is not the Ace but the Jack! Never discard your five card sequence when, for instance, there is a jack in it as well. By keeping a jack, you may bank on an opportunity to get a high ranking hand.
Don't rush, it will do you no good. You have all the time you need. Especially when starting off, it is wise to take time to study the cards before eventually building a hand.
