How to Use our Video Poker Calculator

The Video Poker Calculator allows you to manually enter the 5 cards you've been dealt, and then tells you the ideal way to play the hand - that is which cards to hold and which cards to drop to draw new cards.

To get the most optimum playing strategies, the Video Poker Calculator prompts you to select the type of Video Poker game you are playing as well as the corresponding payout table.

Not all video poker games are the same! And even among a single variation of the game, such as Jacks or Better, different casinos offer different payout tables associated with that game! It is critical to review the payout tables to make sure you are getting the best odds possible!

We recommend that you bookmark this page with the browser on your cellphone or tablet. You are allowed to use our Video Poker Calculator while actually playing Video Poker in the casino! We highly recommend you use our calculator while learning to play and always keep it handy so you can look up questionable hands when playing for real money.

  1. To get started, select the type of Video Poker game you are playing. Our Video Poker Calculator defaults to Jacks or Better, which is the most common version of the game. However, we also support the following video poker games: Aces & Eights, Double Bonus Poker, Bonus Poker, All America Poker, Joker Poker

  2. Select the Payout Table that corresponds to the game you are playing. Our payout defaults to 9/6, which means a Full House pays 9 to 1 and the Flush pays 6 to 1. If you play 5 max credits (which you always should), you will win 45 credits when hitting a Full House and 30 credits when hitting a Flush. See our full default 9/6 Payout Table below:

  3. Click on any card to select all 5 cards you have been dealt.

  4. Click the Process button to receive the Best Play to make. You will see the calculated EV (Expected Value) of the Best Play as well as the values of the less favorable plays to make.
