vpFREE2 is the the preeminent online resource for players
looking to find the best video poker playing opportunities in the United States and Canada.
Our searchable inventory of video poker games contains thousands of listings covering a
myriad of game choices at hundreds of casinos.
To get the most out of this database, you'll
need to be already familiar with the video poker lingo
(so check out our glossary!).
You should also know how to play at least one video poker game nearly perfectly using Max-EV strategy.
Master the basics games (JOB & PKM) then build your skills
If you are just starting out with video poker,
we strongly suggest you first master playing the Jacks or Better
video poker game that returns (with optimal play) 99.54%,
also known as "
To do this, you'll need to know the correct strategy and practice,
using a computer video poker training program-- until you can play nearly perfectly.
A number of strategies are available on line (see for example,
the wizard of odds simple JOB strategy
as is video poker training software.
Once you master 9/6 JOB, you should consider learning
if the 99.95% version of that game is available at a casino you may visit,
since it is an easy game to learn-- yet it is very different from Jacks or Better.
BTW, both JOB and PKM are not only the easiest games to master,
but also both are relatively low variance video poker games.
Once those are mastered, you can go ahead and build your skills
learning games that may offer better playing opportunities.
Learn the math to succeed at the comp game
Many of the best video poker playing opportunities
that are listed on vpFREE2 arise through the combination
of the return of the base game (such as 99.54% for 9/6 JOB)
and the value of any promotions, including player's club points and comps.
Though the vpFREE2 video poker inventory lists many games that
return more then 100%, these games may be rare,
or you may not be able to take advantage of them,
or you may not want to do so for a number of reasons.
In other words, to expect to be a winning video poker player,
you must learn to properly value the entire playing opportunity,
not just the return of the game itself.
Once you can compute the overall return,
you can consider whether you have the appropriate bank roll to play it,
and weigh a possible win against the risk of loss or complete ruin.
Of, course, make sure that you only consider the actual value (to you) of any non-cash promotions or comps.
