Thoughts about getting a royal flush playing video poker. Years ago I went to http://www.freeslots.com/poker.htm and played with the “trainer on” function until I understood the basics of video poker... you can play all forms, i.e. jacks or better, deuces wild, etc.
In January I got bored with playing video poker at such a slow pace and went to
I not only enjoyed playing faster, but I really learned a lot. For example, I’d never realized how hard it is to get a royal flush. I found in playing 100 hands at a time, that I rarely ever got a royal flush. Sometimes I went over an hour or two or three without getting one... and if you consider how many hands I had played at 100 hands each time, I had played in hour after hour of play, it boggles the mind. It cured me of constantly trying to get a royal flush and caused me to try for more reasonable goals... the only time I try for a royal flush is if I have at least 3-4 cards in the flush. I also got a new appreciation of straight flushes and just plain flushes... they kept me playing a lot longer. Just think how many points you put on your card playing $5.00 at a time for 100 hands.
My system was simple, I used the setup that came up on the screen... of 10000 points and I played like it was a penny machine or $100... which unless circumstances change drastically is all I’ll ever have the money to play with in a real casino. I play until the $100 is gone or I reach a goal of 30.000 - 40,000 points or $300-$500. I consider this to be a reasonable way that I might play in a real casino. Try it and find out just how hard this game is to win.
Have fun practicing, Texas Gramma
