Gaming Tips of the month

Video Poker is an extremely popular game in both the land based casinos and online. The flexibility to play for pennies per hand all the way up to thousands of dollars ensures there is a game here for everybody. If you search the Amazon.com book site for poker strategy books you will get page after page of results all touting they have the best strategy.  The reasons there are so many books on the subject is because there are so many possible hands that to play a perfect video poker strategy is very complicated. That said today we will give you a few simple tips. When playing Jacks or Better video poker many people are confused on what to do when they are dealt the all too frequent High Card hand.

The High Card hand is a hand that contains no pairs or a possibility of easily attaining a higher hand such as a straight or a flush. A typical hand would be a 2-5-8-J-K of varied suits. In this scenario the best play would be two hold the two face cards the Jack and King. Many people would save either or the King or the Jack and some would discard all cards but your greatest chances of winning is to hold the two cards that are Jack or higher.

One of the biggest mistakes people make when playing video poker is not playing the maximum level of coins. The reason why it is important to play the Max coins is that the reward for getting a Royal Flush is inflated when betting the max. The payout on a standard video poker machine for a Royal Flush with four coins is 1000x whereas the win with five coins is 4000x! Mathematically your odds of winning are greatly increased by playing the max.

The good news is with the growth of online casinos you can play and practice you skills online for free. Just by using the two tips above your odds of winning will be greatly increased. Sites such as Clubworld Casino offer their online software for free which you can download here and play all of their games without needing to make any deposit. When you are ready to take the next step you can collect a Free Bonus and try your luck at the playing for real winnings.

Casino News

Las Vegas might be the top gaming destination within the United States but on a global scale nothing compares to the amount of gambling that takes place in the casinos of Macao. CNN recently reported that the Macao gaming industry exceeded $45 Billion dollars; this is more the seven times the value of the Las Vegas market.  One of the reasons for such an enormous market share is the average dollar value of the players who play in Macau. The average minimum bet in Macau is a staggering $270, compare that to the $20 average bet in Las Vegas and you begin to see difference between the two cities.

Another large difference is the preferred games of choice. In Las Vegas you will see lots of activity around the Slot machines and the table games such as Blackjack and Poker. In Macao 91% of the action is on the game of Baccarat while only 1% is generated from the Blackjack tables. This reflects that the clientele of Macao is heavily influenced by the high rollers of Asia and China in particular.

A trip to Macau is sure to be a dazzling experience but according to this data it would be well advised to bring a very large bankroll! Thanks for visiting with us and don’t forget t tell your friends about CasinoGames.com!
