Although most people believe that winning in casinos is a matter of luck, video poker actually gives you an opportunity to make decisions. The problem is that most people simply don’t know how to make smart playing moves—or they didn’t until now. In this book, author and gambling expert Linda Boyd offers a user-friendly guide that helps you gain the winning edge over video poker machines.

The Video Poker Edge first explains the basics of video poker, and introduces you to eight common video poker games that pay well and are easy to play. For each recommended game, you’ll learn the correct response to every common hand you may be dealt. The author even provides handy strategy cards that can be removed from the book and taken along to the casino for reference.
