Re: Thread about video poker

Those guys screwing up that glitch is similar to how an insane % of lottery winners go broke. Its like how could you possibly screw this up, just be conservative and you are set for life! But its a function of the types of people playing the lottery or degening for so many hours on VP they discover a glitch.

Re: Thread about video poker

Busted in PLO-PL08 cash game. Took $400 down to the bad payable multiline games. Ran $200 up to $400 on 5-line and almost quit. Decided to go to 10 line so I could expose even more of my money to the house edge (haha). 99% of play is $1 NSUD single line.

Siiiiiick. Too bad you weren't playing deuces bonus.


Also pretty gangster to take a pic before holding the hand. I'd get that locked up ASAP.

Re: Thread about video poker

This answers the question I was going to ask. Since you had 10 lines each of which won $1000 this is not a hand pay and does not require a W-2G. Right?

Wrong. At least in the US. It's considered a 10k win. Hand-pay + W-2G.

Re: Thread about video poker

So why does the 10-play machine in post #1254 not say "Call Attendant"?

I was wondering that myself, guessing that it may blink on and off.

Re: Thread about video poker

It was on the blinking screen. You can tell the machine is locked because all the buttons are greyed out.

It does. First "call attendant" comes up, then goes away, then the "Jackpot! 10,000.00" comes up. It alternates and one can take a pic in between those which won't show either.

Agree with previous comment- pretty ballsy to snap a pic prior to hitting the hold buttons sir!

Re: Thread about video poker

Does anyone know of a 5 aces video poker machine anywhere in vegas, or anywhere in the US for that matter? They either have or had one at the fitz in tunica and im wondering if that's the only machine in the country lol. Would be funny if that's the only one in the world, except that I like that game

Video Poker is such a sick game. I sometimes regret running so hot when I first started playing it lol.

The prospect of going on another video poker heater keeps me coming back ugh.

Re: Thread about video poker

Video poker was the game that hooked me into gambling. Literally my 4th $20 bill of gambling (I was nauseous about burning through $60 in one week)

I hit 5 of a kind on Joker Poker for $500 I was so shocked i just looked at the screen for 2 minutes. It was a super old machine in a crappy state VLT gas station. I thought this was how it would always be. Put the $500 back into other machines and burned a hole in my checking account with bovada that was supposed to be covered by the VP money. I have never been positive in gambling since.

WinPoker app on iPhone versus WinPoker PC. What does the PC version do better than the app?

Is there anything similar for Android? I can't believe winpoker isn't available after all this time.

Hit this royal flush while waiting for breakfast before leaving for home after an overnight trip to Cache Creek Casino. It put me in plus territory for the trip.

Re: Thread about video poker

are there any apps that allow you to plug in a real-time hand while at a casino and it will give you the most +EV play?

Video Poker Pocket from videopoker.com will allow you to do that. But if you have that app then you are practicing regularly and shouldn't need the extra help except with the toughest hands.

Re: Thread about video poker

I notice most of the folks posting pics are play single hand video poker, is that to reduce variance? most people I see playing are using 3 or 5 hands at a time

Isn't variance less on a multiline machine?

Depends upon whether you calculate the variance by holding the $/spin or the $/line constant.

Sam's town on Boulder HWY Vegas has at least one. It is a multigame machine and has some weird stuff like 'chase the royal' and others.

it is (was?) about 3 rows in directly in front of the Dunkin Donuts.
