When your favorite US casino is closed, plenty of video poker games are available online, as well as online slots, online blackjack etc!

Whereabouts of Good Video Poker Machines

In my opinion, the cutoff for a "good" video poker machine is one that has a payout table that averages 99.5% or better with optimal play.

Casinos frequently change their machines and their policies, so this list could be out of date by the time you read it. Send me an e-mail with updated information and I will include it here and give you credit (or not, if you tell me you want to remain anonymous). Right now this is a very incomplete survey. You can fix that!

Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas has the best gambling anywhere. 6/9 jacks-or-better machines (99.5%) are too numerous to list. A gambling-oriented site is Las Vegas for Visitors at The Mining Co.

Reno, Nevada

Many casinos have put in "Multi Poker" machines. This is relatively recent (September 1996), or perhaps I missed them earlier. They combine Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, Bonus, Double Bonus, and Bonus Deluxe in one machine. You pick which one you want to play. Some (not all) of these machines have the full-pay variations.
