    I'm just wondering how many other people use freeslots.com's video poker game for practice. It keeps a running tally of your sessions and strategy accuracy. My question is, do you think it approximates real play? Are the wins/losses similar to what one would expect in a real casino? (setting at 1x pay)

    When I first started using it I thought it wasn't realistic because i hit my first royal on it within the first 10 minutes . but now since it feels like I Haven't hit anything in over a month or so. I feel its very realistic Lol. Great practice either way:thumbsup:

    I play on videopoker.com when ever a vegas trip gets close, it doesn't give suggested play but it does have just about every game under the sun. I use a cheat sheet to make sure I get the correct plays down and try and play about 1000 hands of the game I plan to play.

    VP is exactly what I use my free play on too. Haven't had much luck going that route, but it's fun!

    Thanks. I haven't played much VP in Vegas, I've just picked it up last year as I used to play blackjack and the very occasional slot machine.

    As for freeslots, yesterday I went down about 900 credits (realistic!) and today had a run where I went up over 600 credits (not realistic?). The winning session seemed to have an abnormal amount of quads and full houses. Both sessions were about 1400 hands.

    Any non-US free site that also offers real paid play, the free game going to be rigged to win and the paid game is going to be rigged to lose.

    If you have a tablet, download the VideoPoker.com app, it has the correct plays for all games.
    To "unlock" a game 100% (rather than just the Jacks Or Better version of it) it's $5, so, not bad at all.

    Best practice device I've found is a rather old (by software standards) program called Frugal Video Poker. It has a big selection of games, several playing modes (including indicating how each hand should be played), statistics related to each machine, and printable strategy charts for play. Very nice and complete program for free. Works fine on Windows 7 without having to invoke "compatibility mode," so I imagine it would be OK on Windows 8 as well.

    I have used Bob Dancer's "Win Poker" for several years, and it covers everything you want ... including single line, multi-line, changing pay tables, all the warnings for errors and suggested correct play, etc., etc. Very realistic ....
