Best Video Poker Machines in the Casino

Unfortunately, most video poker players wait until they get to the casino to find out which are the best video poker machines to play. They decide what particular casino they want to stay at, and then when they get there they start looking at the pay tables on the video poker machines. They realize the best that casino offers is something like 8/5 Jacks or Better or worse. They decide to go ahead and play the lower payback machines because they’ve already made the trip. They certainly aren’t going to go to a casino and not gamble, so they settle for whatever that casino has to offer.

Trust me I’ve been there. Several years ago we took a cruise and cruises are notorious for terrible payback video poker machines. I was determined not to play them, but by day two I was unable to resist temptation. The best machine they offered was a Double Double Bonus that has a payback of only around 97%.

So how do we go about avoiding this problem?

Simple, find out BEFORE you plan a trip which casino offers the best video poker machines.

Casinos do change inventory frequently so it can be a bit difficult to get a completely accurate report, but there are several ways to find out what casinos offer the best video poker machines. In my book, How to be a Professional Gambler: Video Poker Edition I discuss exactly where you can go to get this information and many other practical tips to help you take your video poker game to the next level.

It is currently one of the best-selling video poker books on Amazon. Click below to check it out on Amazon.

About Greg Elder

I was 37 years old, a husband and father, a former teacher, college and high school basketball coach, and a business owner, I decided to give it all up (Not the husband and father part) to take a shot at pro gambling. I was coming off a job I hated selling insurance, and I vowed to do something I was passionate about. For the next year I would spend 12-15 hours a day researching, studying, and practicing advantage gambling techniques. The goal was to see if I could sustain our current lifestyle as a professional gambler. I wanted to find out if casinos really could be beat. At the time, I thought it may be the biggest mistake of my life, but my intentions were to have fun trying. It has been an interesting few years since that journey began. My feature book GAMBLERS FIGHT BACK has been released and can be purchased on my author site at I would consider my pro gambling career to be a success on all fronts. I didn't win millions of dollars, but I was able to enjoy every minute of it. It brought an excitement and passion back into my professional life. It has helped lead me to a writing career that I had no idea I even wanted before this challenge. I was able to write a book that shared with others exactly what I learned along the way.. Gambling professionally is not easy, but there are certain things the average gambler can do to increase their chances of success tremendously. That's the information I try to pass along to my readers.
