Thousands of online casinos offer online video poker options any time of the day or night. Not only does this give you the freedom to play on your own schedule, it’s a great way to hone your skills for real-life casinos.

A Few Pointers to Consider

Here are a few points to keep in mind so that you have an exceptional online gaming experience.

For starters, be sure to choose a reputable online casino. Look for quality in both the website design and the free games available to play. This typically indicates a trust- worthy operation. Also take into consideration the rules of each site — they can vary widely. Look for an online casino that has a sign-up bonus (money added to your bankroll) and determine if there are any fees or charges.

Once you have found an online casino you like, you’ll need to open an account with that site. This is often done using a credit or debit card. Once you have linked your card, you can begin playing. You have the option of cashing out at the end of your session or returning to play later. But keep in mind that unlike in real casinos, where you experience the thrill of your winnings instantly, online casinos may take longer to payout your winnings — up to one month.

Video Poker Odds and Strategies

Posted by Emily On December 31st

When it comes to video poker odds, you’ll often hear people say about gaming tables that the house always has an advantage. But video poker is one of the rare exceptions to this rule. If you look for the most liberal pay tables and approach your game with an optimal strategy, then you will have an advantage over the house.

Some machines have high long-term payouts, especially those offering wild card games. If you factor in incentives like cash back, free plays, and other bonuses, you can see a 100% return.

For the best payouts, you’ll need a specific strategy. And some of the best strategies are the simplest! One easy-to-use tactic is to keep a mental list of ranking hands. Then, depending on what you’re dealt, hold on to the cards that are highest on that list. For instance, depending on the video poker game you choose to play, your list might look like this:

This is the second installment of Lotsa Slots – How To Play Slots” which can be downloaded for free from bigmcasino.com.

You basically purchase the right to play a slot machine, by inserting coins, cash, or a paper ticket with a barcode (in Ticket-In, Ticket-Out machines). The money or ticket is placed into a designated slot on the machine. You activate the machine and begin the game by pulling a lever, pressing a button, or (on most modern machines) by pressing a touchscreen on its face.

The game itself may involve skill or knowledge of the game on your part. But, most often, it creates the illusion of involving skill, but is actually just a game of chance.

This is the first installment of Lotsa Slots – How To Play Slots” which can be downloaded for free from bigmcasino.com.

Although the technology of today’s slot machines are quite impressive, slots have actually been around for over a century.

It all began in the 1890’s…when a man named Charles Fey from San Francisco, CA conceived of a poker machine with an automatic payout mechanism.

However, poker was very complex. With so many ways to win in a game of poker, it was nearly impossible to make a machine capable of creating an automatic payout for all the winning combinations.

Instead, Fey devised a machine with three spinning reels. They contained a total of five symbols, including horseshoes, diamonds, spades, hearts, and a Liberty Bell (which also gave the machine its name).

By replacing ten cards with five symbols and using three reels instead of five drums, the complexity of reading a win was considerably reduced, allowing Fey to devise an effective automatic payout mechanism.

Three bells in a row produced the biggest payoff, which was only ten nickels….
