Play for Fun
Last Update: Oct. 15, 2012
Most of these games are crude and simple but still playable, and many include an important feature: they will tell you if you don’t follow optimal strategy, so you can learn how to play better.
NOTE: If you are running Internet Explorer 9 (which comes with Windows 7) and the game you want to play keeps crashing, you need to update your Java installation from this link (for an explanation why, see Microsoft's page here ). While you're at it, you may want to upgrade to a more stable browser such as Google Chrome .
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.
