Frugal Video Poker is the next generation of video poker tutorial software that will out perform all others. Jean Scott, Author of
The Frugal Gambler, endorses and puts her name on this truly unique video poker software. This software has something for every player regardless of their present skill level. The novice can learn to play correctly and the advanced player can run simulations to analyze games and strategies.
Machines include Jacks or Better, Bonus Poker, Kicker Machines, Deuces Wild, Deuces Deluxe, Bonus Deuces Wild, Deuces and Joker Wild, Joker Wild, Multiple Jokers Wild. You have the option of playing in single or multi-play modes. The multi-play modes include triple-play, five-play or ten-play.
There are several training modes you can choose to learn to play video poker. You can set the tutor to alert you when you make a mistake or set it to analyze your play when you are finished with your playing session. If you want you can let the machine auto-hold the correct cards while you watch to get a feel for the game. At anytime while you are playing you can click on the advice button to find out the best play for that particular hand. You can test your knowledge by selecting the flash card mode. When you are using this option the machine does not draw cards after your selection. This cuts down on time if you just want to practice.
You will never have to purchase strategy charts again. The software can generate a strategy chart for any game or pay table that is programmed in. You can customize the way the strategy chart looks by clicking the Chart Appearance button in the charts window. The coloring helps you to quickly find the hands you are looking for on the chart. For example, all straight flush strategy combinations can be one color, and all royal flush, another. You can print the strategy chart to take to the casino with you.
Analyze a Game
The program has over 100 different pre-configured pay tables so you can analyze any game to know exactly what the payback return is for that game. You can also customize the pay tables to analyze any game you find in the casino. All you have to do is click on the analyze game to know what the pay back is for your new pay table. When you are playing you can hold the cards you want and then click a button to compare the return your choice with the best possible return.
I have had this program for a while and I still find new features when I use it. Some of the features include:
There is a tournament mode if you are one who likes to play in tournaments. Practice your tournament strategy as you play against the clock.
The program allows you to calculate cashback, with 2 different methods depending on the information you have. It then adds the cashback rate to the return of the game, so you know exactly the expected return for any play.
You can set up the program for multiple users and each player can save their own game.
When you start the program you can watch an informative video presentation by Jean Scott explaining the basic of video Poker.
The Bottom Line:
The Frugal Video Poker Software is the most sophisticated tutorial/ analyzer program on the market.
It is an excellent program at a Frugal price of $39.95.
