Slot players should try video poker

Slot players should seriously consider graduating to video poker, because they're much more likely to win that way.

Playing is very easy you are dealt five cards, then you decide which ones to keep by tapping the pictures on the screen or pressing buttons on the console.
Then you will hit the DRAW button and you get your replacement cards for the cards you did not keep.You win if you end up with a traditional poker hand such as two pair, a straight, or a flush, etc.

One thing that is nice about video poker is you can know the return of the machine even before you begin playing it. A typical video poker machine, the casino's average profit on each play is about 3%. This means, if the casino gets 3% of all the money bet, the players get back 97% of all money bet.

Re: Slot players should try video poker

What is graduating to video poker from slots?

Yeah, video poker may be fun for some gamblers, but it's basically one game that you can get lucky at.

With slot machines, you have a huge variety to choose from and an even larger variety of coin denominations.

Plus from what I've noticed in a brick and mortar casino, you get more comps for playing slot games than any other casino game.

Yeah sure, I'll play video poker on occasion, but playing slot machines are where the action is (most of the time, for me).

Re: Slot players should try video poker

Ive tried video poker several times and just didnt care for it plus the fact that I had no hits that amounted to anything.

I am with you on the slot machine thing. You can play penny slots or quarter slots. Nickle slots, or dollar slots. $5 slots for that matter if you can.

And I agree, you get more comp points on slots than on any other game in the brick and mortar casinos.

Re: Slot players should try video poker

After a little research, I found there is one thing going for video poker with players verses the house; the house edge percentage is the lowest on video poker.

I guess that means the player should walk away with more than they put in, if they play their video poker cards right.

Re: Slot players should try video poker

Yes, the house edge is lower on video poker, but I still do not have any luck on this game.

I can sit down at a machine and have people winning on both sides of me and I get absolutely nothing and I do know how to play poker. Perhaps it is my disinterest in the game that is the actual problem when I play.

Maybe I need to take video poker play a little more seriously than I have been.

Part of the problem may be that I just go to the casino to have something to do and not just to win. I may need to go to win and not just for something to do eh?

That's right, bartongrl1. When you go to a casino you go with the "I'm gonna win!" attitude.

That may be the same problem I'm having when I play video poker; a bad attitude toward the game to begin with.

My wife will try one video poker machine for a few hands and then change to another one if the first one doesn't give her a win.

Another good thing to think about while playing video poker; know how to play poker in the first place.

If you see two pair on the board, don't hold both pair; just hold two cards (one pair) and the hit the deal button again.

That's one of my biggest mistakes while playing video poker; holding two pair and hoping for one of the two cards to show when I hit the deal button.

Re: Slot players should try video poker

You are probably right about going with the wrong attitude. The next time I will go with the "Im going to win today" attitude and see how that works for me. Sure cant hurt.

That's right, bartongrl1, go to the casino with a good attitude. Especially if you're going to play video poker (I thought that was cute ).

It's all about how you play the video poker game and whether or not you want to sit at the same machine, and lose everything to just get a win.

Move to another video poker machine if the one your'e sitting at isn't paying out.

Re: Slot players should try video poker

I have played video poker but don't really care for the game. I prefer slots hands down.

Anyone here play video poker? Have you ever won big on this game? Let us know about your wins, losses and your playing strategy.
