This book is just plain awful. The reviewer from Gurnee, IL is absolutely correct in his appraisal! He was actually very kind to give it 2 stars because it borders on being an outright fraud.
I am an experienced and knowledgeable video poker player. I have studied video poker strategy in depth and have several useful books and other materials.
The reason that I purchased this book is because of its recent publication date as the books and materials that I have are 5 or 6 years old and do not cover many new games and variations of older games.
Unfortunately for me, this book was no help at all and would be totally worthless to anyone new to video poker as well as to experienced players like myself. Follow the advice of the Gurnee reviewer as to reliable authors.
This book is about 350 pages but that is due to the writer repeating the same material over and over in an effort to stretch it out and make it look substantial when it is not so at all. Sentence after sentence he makes the same statement with small variation and continues page after page. The par sheets which he claims are so valuable are of no practical use at all and account for about 30 pages. Other useless fillers are obsolete pay tables along with pictures of the machines.

This book is also full of errors such as contrasting 2 pay tables for a particular game when they are actually identical, probably due to a typo.
And here is a really good one: he states on page 266 that if you are dealt AA22 and draw one card that there are 6 cards in the deck available to give you a full house, namely 3 aces and 3 deuces!
He offers a "simple strategy" which is just plain idiotic. In order to play these games properly you need detailed strategies specific to each game and pay table.

Unfortuately, this book follows a trend of Video Poker books. There's just not that much new in the knowledge of video poker that hasn't been written by Dan Paymar, Bob Dancer and others. Instead of trying to present the same information in a better manner, it chooses to conflict with well-established understandings of VP to pursue ill-fated "short-term" strategies that have no basis in the VP community. You are much better off with the standards than you are with this book or Singer's book.

I thought I knew a lot about video poker until I read Mr. Royer's Powerful Profits-Video Poker book. He gives an in depth discussion about what kind of machines to look for, what all the pay tables and percentages mean, and keys to winning consistently. A person who reads this book will be light years ahead of the average video poker player. I actually read parts of this book years later and it even made more sense after having played video poker in casinos using Mr. Royer's knowledge and strategies as outlined in his book. It is a must read for anyone wanting to become a consistent winner at video poker.

I come to Las Vegas first time. My friend she give me this book, so I learn her favorite game. I like book very much. Is very good book. I have good time, and I also buy book. In this book I find everything I need to be good player. All kinds of machines you will find in this book. Also you will see all programs that running the games. There is very much more good information in this book also.
There is one page with very good chart. Chart show all the kind of machine and program and how much it pay. Also how to find it. You look at the machine, and if you know how to look, you will find great paying one. I not only have good time, but I also win money. If you want also to win money, you get this book. It pay for itself many times, and pay me also. If you get book and learn what is here, it also pay you.

All in all it is a very informative book. It tells you how to locate better paying video poker machines. However, there are no guarantees about winning when gambling.
