Play, practice or get perfect hold advice on over 230 types of Video Poker games and over 1200 associated pay
tables one might encounter in real casinos including progressive versions.
This version, the Pro version, comes with all games and pay tables activated.
Once a game type and pay table are selected, there are three different modes of usage:
Perfect Hold Advice - select five cards from a deck and this app shows a perfect hold hand, that is, the cards to hold that maximizes the average or expected long-run payouts. (Some hands have more than one optimal play and you set the criteria to break the ties. These hands are indicated.)
Scored Practice - here a random hand is dealt, the user selects hold cards and then this is rated against a perfect hold hand.
Game Mode - a player just plays the game for fun where random cards are dealt, the player selects hold cards, a draw is made and any payouts recorded. The same draws are used to fill-in a perfect hold hand for comparisons. You are shown what is a perfect hold on each hand after play.
Each hand, regardless of mode, is saved for later review.
Trip Recorder - this feature is used to record data associated with video poker gambling trips or activity.
A new Money Management feature has been added that gives classic gambler's ruin probabilities.
Build Your Own Pay Table - Now you can build your own Pay Table for almost every game. Statistics are computed so you will know the expected value of the game as well as its variance and outcome probabilities. Once created, these Pay Tables can be used just like built-in tables.
Each Perfect Play is explained in detail if desired. Extensive help screens are provided as are information buttons throughout.
See our website for the list of the 230 plus games supported in the Pro version (and the 370 plus in the Pro+ version).
NOTE: Our Apps teach you how to play Perfect Video poker through simulated play with feedback on errors. No prizes or money are involved. In short, no opportunity exists to win real money or prizes based on the outcome of a simulated game in our Apps.
