My Advice for Video Poker Play

9 January 2021
Shortly after I started playing video poker, I read an article in a gambling rag about a great way to play the game. The article promised that the betting method detailed there would have an excellent chance of winning. It went on to promise that if you did not win, you would definitely be able to play for a very, very long time if you followed the rules.The betting method went something like this.• Bet only one credit on the first hand played.• If it wins, bet one credit on the next hand.• If it loses, bump the amount bet on the next hand to two credits.• If it wins, go back to one credit on the next bet.• If it loses, bump the amount bet on the next hand to three credits.• If it wins, go back to one credit on the next bet.• If it loses, bump the amount of the bet on the next hand to four credits.• If it wins, go back to one credit on the next bet.• If that hand loses, bump the amount of the bet on the next hand to five credits.• Regardless of whether this hand wins or loses, bet one credit on the next hand.I knew all about which games had the best returns...read more

No, No, (yes) and No

5 January 2021
There is no doubt that I’ll play around in many columns about this or that technique, method or system of play, even those that are awful, but I always explain what is truly wrong with these methods. I don’t actually think most ways of play are any good or, rather, less bad.There are methods that can give the player a slight edge (these methods and players are rare indeed), methods that give the house the smallest edge at any given game, methods that sock it to the player one way or another, and money management techniques that preserve the players’ bankrolls.So today I am going to be strict in my advice and answer some of the questions I received from players about how they play or should play...read more
