Enjoy your time at Springbok Casino
We have explained in past articles that video poker is the single game at an online casino that has the return top player rate closest to 100%. The difference between winning at video poker and losing is usually a combination of mistakes players make plus a run of some bad luck. If you make the correct play all the time and have a run of some good luck, you will indeed win at video poker more often than you’ll lose.
One way we at Springbok try to help you become a winner at video poker is by publishing these tips articles. Video poker, like every game we offer, is a winnable game. The difference between video poker and slots is that slots are a pure game of chance whilst in video poker you can genuinely affect the outcome.
Another way we help you become better at video poker, or at any other game we offer, is by being the premier no deposit casino in South Africa. With our no deposit bonus, you can play video poker for a very long stretch of time and develop some expertise at the game.
The answer is a resounding yes. However, you have to understand what it means to be a professional player. As in any other profession, you have to practice constantly. Singers do their scales every day even though they know the scales perfectly. It’s very easy for a professional singer to lose that professional edge.
The same is true in other areas of music. Pianists practice the piano; violinists practice the violin and so on. In sports, coaches look at film and study tendencies in their players and in opposing players.
In short, to be a professional at anything, from ventriloquism to video poker, is a full time job.
One way you can use the facilities at Springbok to enhance your video poker expertise is by playing in our free play mode. Some players ask us from time to time why we offer unlimited free play. The simple answer is that it’s good business.
Even a dedicated video poker player will need some time off from clubs, spades, diamonds, and hearts and will try his or her hand at another game we offer. So, even though there is a good chance that a player will win at any given game on any given day, the small edge remains with the house.
Here are a few dos and don’ts from the world of professional video poker.
Let’s face it: in any field, only a very few become the top experts. Most people are going to be good or great but not super great. It is okay to be an amateur video poker player instead of devoting your career to becoming a professional video poker player.
Always keep in mind that amateur video poker players who study the game and knew the hands and the permutations can win a lot more often than they lose; they just can’t support themselves on their winnings.
In other words, just as actors in Los Angeles or Manhattan are always told to “keep their day jobs” so video poker players should in almost all cases keep their day jobs and supplement their income by playing video poker at a very high level.
We and many others have covered basic video per strategy in other articles. Basic strategy is very sound. At the highest level of strategy, you get into much more complicated analyses. If you want to become a true professional, you’ll have to learn the most complex strategy. If you want to play at a high level then solid basic strategy is enough.
Just as it takes thousands of hours to become extremely proficient at medicine or music, it takes thousands of hours to become expert at video poker. Most players just want to have some fun. So, we advise the vast majority of our players to do these following things to help them win at video poker:
It’s always more fun to win so play hard and play smart and have a great time.
