Although most people believe that winning in casinos is a matter of luck, video poker actually gives you an opportunity to make decisions. The problem is that most people simply don’t know how to make smart playing moves―or they didn’t until now. In this book, author and gambling expert Linda Boyd offers a user-friendly guide that helps you gain the winning edge over video poker machines.

The Video Poker Edge first explains the basics of video poker, and introduces you to eight common video poker games that pay well and are easy to play. For each recommended game, you’ll learn the correct response to every common hand you may be dealt. The author even provides handy strategy cards that can be removed from the book and taken along to the casino for reference.

About the Author:

Linda Boyd spent many years as a mathematics educator―a career that proved valuable in helping her design the statistical tactics included in this book, and present them in a way that is easy to understand even for the “mathematically challenged.” After years of playing blackjack and live poker, Ms. Boyd turned to the more profitable game of video poker.

From Publishers Weekly:

Former math teacher Boyd's guide to winning bucketfuls of change is not for the casual casino-goer: readers will come across sentences like "the mathematically correct way to play any dealt hand is based on the stated payout table in conjunction with statistical probabilities"; be required to keep straight variances, expected returns and expected values (some are percentages; some are currency equivalents); and learn how to read seemingly cryptic charts before sinking their teeth into the meat of Boyd's strategies. But, for the left-brained set, Boyd's book is a boon: she excels in breaking down which hands to play, which types of video poker games offer better chances of payouts for large and small bankrolls, betting strategies and the different types of casinos and games readers can expect to find across the country. Readers who already know their way around a Harrah's will want to skip the sections dealing with gambling addiction, budgets and casino etiquette and cut to the discreetly pocketable payout charts and the approximately 40 pages Boyd dedicates to strategy. Savvy video poker players could win back the cover price in a night.
