A casino can be very intimidating.

Playing New Casino Games can be Intimidating when you visit the casino. Taking this leap is tough, whether you are an experienced veteran or a newbie. Being new at anything brings with a certain uneasiness – everybody knows the stuff you don’t know. It comes with a new job, social media, a new circle of friends, and especially at the casino.

Playing new Video Poker and Table Games needs some prep work to help your bankroll last longer. If you have a better mathematical chance to win, and you can earn more rewards with a longer play.

Let Technology Help you

In the olden days, we had to walk through 5 miles of snow, wind, and cold to get to my local casino (uphill). We didn’t have internet, or phones, or books or electricity (am I laying it on too thick?). We had to learn the old fashioned way by playing, making mistakes and getting funny looks from everyone.

OK, may I exaggerated a bit. That isn’t  true – at least the snow, etc., part. But the internet, wireless devices, apps, and even the casinos themselves, have made it easier to learn how to play AWAY from the games and BEFORE you use your own money.  Online sites such as The Wizard of Odds, and software such as Bob Dancer’s Video Poker for Winners are fabulous resources.Video Poker

Playing New Casino Games – Video Poker Preview

Today, however, I would like to start the considerations for Video Poker players.

Volatility is a word VP players should know. Besides the payback, which refers to the pay table and how much you win per bet, volatility, or variance, can cause a big difference in the size of your bankroll swings in the long run. For the recreational gambler, it can mean a quick loss of bankroll the bankroll, a quick (and not suggested) return to the ATM, or a quick ride back home.

Video Poker seems to be coming out with new games every day. If you’re not careful, you could lose your bankroll in an instant.

Video poker games are no way near the same in payback, volatility and needed bankroll.  Strategy for different games, such as Jacks or Better (JOB) and Double Double Bonus (DDB) can be very different. JOB alone needs changes in strategy depending on what pay table is offered.

In the old days, I was pleased to know the strategy to play the usual offerings – JOB and Deuces wild. But now, here are some of the video poker games in casinos. When I first started NETimeGambling, the list included some favorites still offered. ($ = Still popular today).
