Play for fun, practice or get perfect hold advice for many types of Video Poker games and associated pay tables one might encounter in real casinos including progressive versions.
This version, the Lite version, comes with 15 games activated with 16 activated pay tables (one game has two). Upgrading to the Pro+ Version is always available.
Once a game type and pay table are selected, there are three different modes of usage:
Perfect Hold Advice - select five cards from a deck and this app shows a perfect hold hand, that is, the cards to hold that maximizes the average or expected long-run payouts. (Some hands have more than one optimal play and you set the criteria to break the ties. These hands are indicated.)
Scored Practice - here a random hand is dealt, the user selects hold cards and then this is rated against a perfect hold hand.
Game Mode - a player just plays the game for fun where random cards are dealt, the player selects hold cards, a draw is made and any payouts recorded. The same draws are used to fill-in a perfect hold hand for comparisons. You are shown what is a perfect hold on each hand after play.
Each hand, regardless of mode, is saved for later review.
Trip Recorder - this feature is used to record data associated with video poker gambling trips or activity.
A Money Management feature gives classic gambler's ruin probabilities.
Each Perfect Play is explained in detail if desired. Extensive help screens are provided as are information buttons throughout the screens.
