Video Poker Analyzer
Last Update: Jun 22, 2012
This analyzer will analyze any pay table for many types of video poker games. Select a category and game, enter the pay table, and click the Analyze button. In a few seconds the analyzer will show the probability and return for each hand, and the entire game. All calculations are based on optimal strategy, with the exception of Ultimate X games, which is explained in further detail if you select Ultimate X as the game category. Note that the figure shown in the Totals row under the Frequency column shows the frequency of any non-losing hand.
I would like to thank J.B. for his outstanding work on this calculator.
Reason #3 why the Wizard likes Bovada:
In my opinion many online casinos are too stingy when setting the odds on their games. They think they will make more money that way but I believe they are misguided, because when players lose too quickly it’s not fun, and those players might not come back.
Bovada is one of the few casinos that understands this. They offer generous odds to let you play longer and get you a better chance of winning. Among their generous offerings are Full-Pay Jacks or Better returning 99.54%, six other video poker games paying over 99%, single-zero roulette, and my favorite, Pick ’em Poker, returning 99.95%!
Kudos to Bovada for not being afraid to give their players a good gamble.
