Video Poker Assistant is a tool to help improve your video poker playing and help you win actual money at real video poker machines!
Video Poker Assistant accomplishes this by offering 2 modes to help players, Evaluator and Practice. You'll never have to second guess which cards to hold or redraw again!
Video Poker Assistant is not a video poker game or simulator, there are plenty of those available. This is a tool to help you win.
In Evaluator, the player selects all 5 cards manually then the program will calculate all possible outcomes/payouts and then display the optimal hold/draw combination. It is very useful to check what you should do for a specific hand. See screenshots 3, 4 & 5.
In Practice, 5 cards are dealt at random and then the player is asked to select which they would hold/redraw. Afterwards the program calculates the optimal play, as it does in the Evaluator, and then it's compared to the selected play. If the selected play isn't the best play, it will display what moves should of been different. See screenshots 6, 7 & 8.
The video demo shows both of these modes in action, please check it out. Only 1 minute run time.
In both modes, this program does a lot of calculations. Please consider the fact that there are 2,598,960 possible poker hands and this program processes through all of them to see which of the 32 possible hold/draw combination gives you the most chances to win, which take a few seconds to calculate properly. Within the "How To Use" section of the program is a detailed explanation of what calculations are done if you're curious.
Both modes are interchangeable between the 3 different styles of video poker that are implemented.
-Jacks or Better (the most common)
-Double Double Bonus
More games are coming, I plan to make this the Android clone of the famous PC program WinPoker
The default payouts that are set are the most common for those types of machines, however the payout table is 100% editable.
Sorry for the annoyance that each time you load the program there is a disclaimer you must agree to. This is simply to protect myself in case this program is used for it's non-intended purposes. See screenshot #2.
Only APK permission needed is Play Store License Check. Which is needed to ensure that only users who paid for this program can use it, the check is ran during the initial splash screen. Supports all screen sizes and atleast Android 1.6
That's it, I hope you enjoy and are able to improve your video poker playing and win some money during your next casino visit. Good Luck!!
