to Win At Video Poker Is The Easiest Way I Know to Make $2,000 a
It may hard to believe, but
video poker can be beaten.
One reaction to this statement is “How can you beat a
The fact is that video poker is only played
through an computer chip controlled devise that looks like a
slot machine, but is operates on much different principles.
With the right machine and the right
strategy for that particular machine you can play with a payback
of 100% or better.
Many people like slot machines because you
can play without anyone watching you.
You don’t have to contend with pit bosses or dealers or
fellow players who scrutinize and even comment on your play.
You’re mostly on your own when you choose to play
Like regular slot machines video poker
shares all of these characteristics, but with one important
difference: When you play video poker with the correct strategy you will play at an
advantage over the casino.
Here is a quick point-by-point comparison
of slot and video poker play:
video poker instead of mindlessly playing like many slot machine
players do, you will use a definite strategy.
This makes the game much more interesting (and a lot less
boring) than playing ordinary slots.
poker players lose less money per hour than slot players do.
This is because video poker players can apply their card
playing experience to video poker play to reduce the house edge
(or, as we will see, in some cases gain a real edge over the
poker machines offer much higher paybacks than slot machines.
While a 95% payback might be considered a very good
payback for a traditional slot machine, with video poker you can
achieve paybacks of over 100%.
poker is a game of skill where by applying the methods I am
going to teach you can win consistently. With slot machines you are almost always at the mercy of
fickle dame luck.
video poker machines you can determine whether you can play at
an advantage by simply viewing the pay out schedule shown on the
front of every video poker game.
With slot machines you never know what the true payback
will be. Two
identical slot machines can have very different payback rates as
the slot payback is determined by a computer chip, programmed to
pay out at a certain rate.
Furthermore, there is no way to know what the payback
rate is by looking at the front of a slot machine.
Video poker machines are much more
forthright than slot machines.
While it is impossible to look at a slot machine and
determine what its payback rate is, this is very easy to do so
with video poker.
video poker machine gives you the information you need to know
if it is beatable right on the front of the machine.
In the Power
Video Poker Strategy Manual I will show you how to find the
best paying video poker machines and give you winning strategies
to play and beat them.
I take two very different approaches to
playing video poker machines in this book and present different
strategies for each type of play.
Short-term players are presented simplified
playing strategies that are much easier to learn and use. In fact, there are playing strategy cards in the back of the
Power Video Poker Manual that you can print and carry with you.
Short-term play is my preferred method
of play. It is
easier to learn, wins much quicker and requires a much lower
bankroll than long-term play. I use a combination of a higher simplified playing strategies
and betting strategies that adjust the size of your bets
depending on how the video poker machine is paying off.
Directed Betting is the key to winning at video poker on
a short-term basis.
Even though the short-term playing
strategies are much simpler than their long-term counterparts,
they give up very little in gaining an edge over the video poker
game. Unless you
are interested in becoming a professional video poker player and
spending a great amount of time playing video poker, learning
the long-term or professional playing strategies will not be
worth your effort.
players also have more flexibility in how they play the games.
I will explain all of this in greater detail and give you
plenty of information so that you can decide what kind of player
you want to be.
