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.

Chasing losses

20 May 2017
Dear Stickman: I am trying very hard to become a better player in the casino. I have read some of your articles and several of Frank Scoblete’s books and articles.

Regression betting

29 April 2017
There are many betting systems being touted. They cover all aspects of betting. They come from all areas of thought. Some of them sound really (and I mean really) good. But are they?

8 April 2017
Over the last few decades, casinos have consistently chipped away at the returns for video poker. In the golden days of video poker it was very common to see video poker games that returned very close to – if not more than – 100%. Now it seems that the best games available in many casinos return less than 99%. ... (read more)
 

Playing 8/5 Jacks or Better

18 March 2017
An acquaintance recently asked me to comment on playing the 8/5 version of Jacks or Better. He understands that 9/6 Jacks or Better is a better game to play, but says it is sometimes hard to find such a game. For those readers who are not familiar with video poker terminology, the Jacks or Better game is one of the first video poker games ever manufactured. ... (read more)
 

Some video poker games earn different players club points

25 February 2017
Savvy players like Video Poker because of its low house edge. With some games the edge can actually be in the player’s favor. By including slot club bonus points, even a slightly negative game can become positive. At one time (it now seems like the distant past), when the concept of player’s club points was ... (read more)
