I've simulated playing a don't pass bet with odds along with a don't come bet, with a positive outcome. However, in reality, it hasn't work out nearly as well. ... (read more)
 

How video poker machines work

14 October 2017
Stickman, I have been meaning to ask this question for a long time. When playing video poker, are the draw cards stacked behind the discarded cards or are they the next cards to be dealt? For example, I am dealt K, K, K, 4 and 7. I discard the 4 and the 7. Are the next cards to be played behind the 4 and ... (read more)
 

Heads or tails?

23 September 2017
Dear Jerry Stickman, Hi. My friends and I have been having long hours trying to work out the math logic behind a simple betting scenario, but alas to no avail. We hope you can shed some light.

Saving an 8 in video poker

2 September 2017
Hi Stickman, With five-card video draw poker, assume you have the following: 7 of spades, 8 of diamonds, 8 of hearts, 9 of spades and 10 of clubs. Obviously you will discard one of the two 8's.

Playing Video Poker Tournaments

1 July 2017
Frequently I get questions from readers about the proper strategy for video poker tournaments. In general, tournaments are so short that luck is the major factor in winning one of them. Actually, for the games in which skill is not a factor such as slots, keno or roulette, luck is basically the only factor. ... (read more)
 

Deuces Wild strategy with two and three deuces dealt

10 June 2017
Deuces Wild is a popular video poker game. The payback for full-pay Deuces Wild is more than 100%. The variance (which directly affects how much bankroll is required) is relatively low and the playing strategy is reasonably simple. But the real attraction of Deuces Wild is the additional bonus you win for getting four deuces. ... (read more)
