Which video poker machines are the best?

7 July 2008

I would like to know what video poker machines are better to play. For example, some have wild cards, others pay only for 3-of-a-kind or better, etc.

Lois

Dear Lois,

Asking this question is like asking which type of music is better. All types have some things in common, but different types appear to different people.

Some people like the mild bankroll swings of Jacks or Better. Others find Jacks or Better boring and prefer the roller coaster ride of Double Bonus, or one of the other bonus games. Pick the type of pay table that best suits your gambling personality.

Regardless of which type of video poker game you play, play the highest-paying pay table you can find and learn the proper strategy for that pay table.

Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
John
