Playing slot machines at a casino is fun, but it is a pure game of chance.  Your best odds when playing slot machines at a casino is to pick a video poker machine.  By reading the video poker legend, you will increase your odds of winning and have a good time.  Here are a few tips on how to pick the right machine.

How do you win at the casino?  The best answer is to not play or to buy a used video poker machine for your home game room. 

However,Guest Posting there is one sure way to have the best odds when playing slot machines at a casino.  Find a single deck video poker slot machine.

Video Poker Slots are the best odds game for a player that enjoys the personal confines of a slot machine, not a blackjack or poker table.  But when looking for a video poker machine, you need to look for the best odds machine which will be found in the video poker legend.

The legend is found just above the cards on the screen.  It will show you what the odds of the game are by looking at the “Full House” and the “Flush” payouts.  You only want to pay attention to these two indicators when one coin is registered. 

The best possible payout would be what is called a 10-7 video poker slot machine.  That is a 10 is next to the “Full House” and a 7 next to the “Flush” on the legend.  This is a payback percentage of 100%.  More likely to be found are the 9-6 video pokers or less.  A 9-6 video poker slot machine is around 99% payback while the 8-5 are 97.3%. Typically you can find the higher payback video poker machines on a bar top in the casino, but this is not always the case. 

You also need to remember that a machine with a payback percentage of 100% or any percent is based on perfect play.  Perfect play is considered while playing all the odds so you get the best cards dealt to you at the right time and making the right decisions while playing. 

Just because you are playing video poker with a 97% payback or higher, doesn’t mean you will win, it just helps increase your odds of winning.

Another way to enjoy playing video poker is to purchase a used video poker slot machine.  There are many different types of machines that you can purchase.  Choose from IGT PE Plus, Bally Game Makers, and IGT Game Kings.  Most of these are multi game video poker plus some extra games.

The IGT PE Plus multi-game video poker is a five game video poker.  It is a very stable platform and is becoming popular oversees because of its age.  A Bally Game Maker is a 10 game touch screen platform where you can mix, slots, table games and keno.  Get all of your classic video poker games with this slot machine.  But the IGT Game King is aptly named and is the King of all the video poker machines.  It is a 31 game touch screen with all the classic video poker games, several slot games, keno games and blackjack.

The single game video pokers are becoming outdated and hard to find repair parts for.  If you can, stay away from these machines.  The best bet is the newer multi-game platform video pokers.  For in home use, they offer ample poker choices and in many cases slots, keno and blackjack to keep you interested.

Used slot machines and video poker machines can be fun and unique game room additions. Slot Machines & Moreprovides detailed information on the slots they sell, a one-year limited warranty, and a variety of video poker slot machinesfor your home game room.
