TH Tips & Resources
Slot machines in Australia are generally referred to as video poker, poker machines or, in slang, pokies. Online pokies have additional bonusing and second-screen features such as free games and bonus levels. They also allow for multiple lines (up to 100) or multiple ways (up to 3,125) to be played.

You usually raise in the following situations:

  • When you have a very strong combination and you want to increase the pot;
  • When you want to make your opponent to check during the next betting i.e. to scare him;
  • When you believe that in this way you will change the pot odds;
  • When you have a strong hand and you are sure that other players won’t fold;
  • When you are convinced your opponent is bluffing;
  • When you decide to bluff with not that strong hand;
  • When you intend to improve your hand during the next betting round and you want to make your opponents fold ( the players with higher combinations but not high enough to answer your raise) i.e. when you use semi-bluffing strategy;
  • When you already managed to form a very strong hand such as straight, flush or full house;
  • When you want to convince other players that you are a loose and aggressive player and you raise having not a very strong hand;
  • When you need to understand what are the hands of your opponents i.e. to “read” their hands.
