Overview


Video Poker: Play Longer with Less Risk presents a sensible, easy method for playing one of the most popular casino games. Beginning gamblers as well as seasoned players will benefit from a strategy that helps them play longer with less risk. "Jacks or Better," "Four of a Kind," "Double Down," "Deuces Wild," and "Sneak Peak" are featured with step-by-step instructions. The unique playing system is explained in detail so that players can apply the technique to any of the flashing, spinning variations of Video Poker. Advice on identifying poker machines with more liberal payouts is also included. With a business background in accounting and taxes, Carol Costa has combined her love of gambling with her understanding of finance. While this book doesn’t promise the reader big winnings, it does offer a conservative approach to Video Poker that allows players to derive more pleasure from the game by helping them to win smaller amounts more consistently. Costa’s book is not for the high roller, but for the average person who enjoys the challenge of playing Video Poker and the social aspects of gaming. Video Poker shows the player how to stay in the game without risking the rent money. It teaches gamblers how to play sensibly and responsibly, and have fun doing it.

    Who knew !!! ???

    I had no idea there were secrets to increasing your odds at the poker machines - well, legal secrets anyway. I always thought if your luck's good, you win. If it's not - well, you know. The very best thing about this book (aside from Ms. Costa telling us how to win) is that it's fun to read, not the dry, taking-itself-too-seriously text that most book of this sort are. Well done!

    Good advice

    Since I live in Las Vegas, what better way to try some of the tips that Ms. Costa gives in her book, then to try it here at our local casinos. I was very optimistic about the one tip that some avid gamblers gave her that when you have three of a kind to just sit back and wait a few seconds before hitting the draw button and chances are the fourth one will come up. I can't tell you how many times I have done this and amazingly the fourth one comes up. It sure helps when you are going for four aces with a kicker. My husband laughed at me when he saw me do it but now I notice he is doing it and it has worked for him also. I also try to find the noisest machine and seem to have good luck with that tip. Although Ms. Costa said that the Joker Wild is a poor poker game to play, I have won many Royal Flushes and jackpots on that game. I'll give this book a thumbs up.
