You can use your Internet-connected smart phone to find best casinos and games when you are on the road.
Here, we examine techniques for making the most of your video poker playing and help you to choose
games that put more money in your pocket.
Games can’t be adjusted or influenced while you are playing them; they are exactly what the paytable says they are.
Over time, most video poker games can be expected to return 95-100 percent of the money bet to the player
(occasionally, you can even find games that return more than 100% with perfect play).

If you want to maximize your winnings and minimize your losses at video poker, it is critical that you play only the best games.
When speaking of variance, however, it is important to remember that games will generate an average return based on their paytables. We’ll notifiy you whenever we have new updates ready..
But the expected payouts of games can vary widely between casinos as well as between games in the same casino.
Check out our Essentials pages for more information on the games to play (and those to avoid).
We appreciate any feedback we receive from visitors to our site.
Yet, you’ll often find uninformed players at one of the lower paying games sitting next to an available full-pay game. If you
hit a Royal Flush on one hand, the odds of hitting one on the next hand are precisely the same as the hand before.
Here, we’ll help you select casinos and games that will increase your chances of winning, and avoid those that take your hard-earned cash. Or, at the very least, playing and losing less. Please spend a little time learning to sort and select
games to find what you’re looking for.
Put another way, the 25c player may, on average, lose $720 in a typical weekend on a 96% game, but will average only $180 in losses on a 99% game. If you notice errors in our database, please use our “Contact Form”

We are in the process of surveying casinos in other areas as well. Games with higher variance will have “wilder” swings
and many people are attracted to this feature.
This site is about playing video poker and winning.
The more hands you can play given your bankroll, the more likely you are to hit a Royal Flush or other high-paying hand, so exhausting your bankroll
on low-paying machines isn’t a great strategy.
As a general rule, it is worth remembering that the outcome of every hand of video poker is independent of what happened in the hands before. A player can go from a string of losses one minute to a string of wins
the next, and this contributes to the excitement of the game.
This is because we tend to play more than just one hand, and in fact usually play tens, hundreds, or even thousands of hands over the course of a casino visit. As we complete our new surveys, new listings are added. Our goal is to create the best online database
of video poker games possible, and we expect to revise our software to provide more usable information as opportunities arise.
A key attraction of gambling is the “streak”, or “swing” of the game. Also, any suggestions for improving the software will be appreciated.
Winning (or minimizing losses) at video poker requires not only that you play the game properly,
but that you carefully choose the games and the places at which you play.
Our Tunica Area and North Louisiana games databases have just been updated. When statisticians
refer to variance, they’re talking about how strongly a game adheres to its average return.
The difference between a game returning 96 percent and one returning 99 percent is dramatic.
Over the millions of hands that are played on a given game, any game will generate a return for the casino that is at least
as great as the paytable implies (“at least”, because many players will not play the game correctly, which increases the casino’s return).
To access games and ratings, you will need to create a free account and login to the site.
It is not unusual to find a bank of games having one or two higher paying games with the adjoining games offering much lower paybacks. You will then be able to easily locate
the best games and the best places to play (as well as places to avoid).
On average, a $20 deposit will pay for four times as many hands on a 99 percent game as it will on a 96 percent game (at five quarters per hand). Statistically, this is a result of the “variance” of the game
