    The slots have been brutal to me for a long time so I am thinking of switching over to video poker. But I've not much knowledge about video poker games. So, I need some professional advice in this game. If you have any advice for me then kindly let me know. I would be very grateful to you.

    You can play online for free by joining a poker affiliate site. They may have strategy guides as well. And I think it is Game King. You can practice for free

    Caleb ,


    There are many ways to skin a cat as long as one applies the right method. I am doing great with that game playing VP in between roulette sessions .

    But those above mentioned full pay 9/6 JOB machines are very few and well hidden . Some casinos even change the pay out to 0/5 .


    Full house and Flush should add up to 15 .

    You do not make a living from playing video poker . Just like any one of the other casino games it is entertainment .Read up on it

    and keep losses to a minimum.

    Start learning and use software to help you. Computer software is available to tell you how to play any hand. Video Poker for Winners, is the one I recommend, but there are other good ones as well.

    I don't know what video poker is available in Australia, but Optimum Video Poker (see at www.optimumplay.com) allows you to edit the payoff table, generate a strategy specific to that new payoff table, and evaluate that chart for the game's true payback with that strategy. It then displays the chart next to the game window so you can practice with that strategy. When you make an error, it highlights the best play in green in the chart, and highlights your play in red. That way you learn to associate hand types in the chart with actual card patterns. There are many more features, making OpVP a great tool no matter where in the world you play.

    Dan Paymar might be a good source of information. Compare also with other VP publishers like John Patrick and Bob Dancer .


    For recreational purposes only .Play at your own risk.

    When I experienced mild losses at roulette or baccarat then VP with a few Four of a kind or full houses came to the rescue to make it a winng day at the casino

    A 25 cent machine requires a good size bankroll.
