Video Poker is the best paying game in a casino. If you want to win money, stay away from the slots and take up video poker. Bob Dancer is a video poker master. I studied his book and purchased his video game and benefited from it tremendously. I spend at least an hour each day on his game and have read and re-read his book many times. I'm at the place that I can almost claim to be a master at video poker. I just returned from a trip to Las Vegas and came back with over 3K more than I went with. My winnings were all from video poker. I hit two jackpots totaling $2456.00 and a lots of smaller amounts and this was on a .25 cent game. I'm not a high roller and this game suits me just fine. It's the only game that you can truly win at IF you study and play correctly. Although I love video poker, I never won money before I studied and practiced on the video game. I can say with authority that this book is a must for serious video poker players

This is a great book on teaching a person how to play "Video Poker"! I'm interested in learning how to play on the Video Poker machines at the casinos and I have learned a lot by reading this book. I've also tested my skills on a website that lets you play video poker for free call the Mystic Gambler. I didn't do too bad. As a matter a fact I was able to hold the right cards all because of reading and studying this book. I'm going to continue practicing until I can really improve on my playing.

If you are interested in wanting to learn how to play Video Poker, I suggest that you buy this book and give it a try.

This is a great book for someone wanting to develop a good overall concept of how to play the game and come out ahead. It does not get too deeply into any one facet but will provide a good basis for someone starting out. He discusses strategies for many different types of video poker games. The book makes reference to Bob's software (VP for Winners) a lot and if you don't have it you will feel like you may not be getting the most out of this book sometimes.

I have purchase most of Bob Dancers books and consider myself an "Advantage Player".

If you are curious about playing video poker and don't know where to start, this book is a great overview and will teach you the basics of the most popular games.

I also recommend purchasing Dancer's Advanced strategy books and pocket cards when you want to take your game to the next level. The advanced strategy books are very dry to read, unless you are very enthusiastic about video poker.

Very informative book. Covers most of the games I find in my local casinos. The real key is finding the right pay tables at my local casino.
I can't find a 9/6 Jacks or better or double double bonus especially at the quarter machines. I can find 9/5 but that is a dollar machine and you need a bigger bankroll for that. The information is in this book though. Once you learn the codes and symbols he uses, you can become a more informed player. I feel I play the game very close to 100 percent but I don't play locally because the pay tables are poor. He breaks the games down to how volatile they are and discusses each. If you are looking for an answer about video poker, it's probably somewhere in this book....

The software is great but unless you are really into statistics and the mathematics of cards, this book won't be for you!! I feel that this book would be more for an advanced player or one who is totally obsessed!!

Ovrall a well written book. The only issue I have is that the author uses some gambling lingo and assumes I understand what the lingo means. It just took a few seconds to figure it out then all was well.
