Have you ever thought about how gambling or wagering started? Do you think one cave man bet another cave man he could hit an animal with a rock from a certain distance? I started thinking about the whole concept of gambling the last time I went to Las Vegas. I love going there. It is so different from day to day life that even if I am there only for a long weekend I feel like I have had a break. Watching people is fantastic. It was through watching others gamble thought I started thinking about how wagering started. It is very obvious that it is a very strong part of eastern cultures. There are many games as well as slot machines that are based on eastern themes.
When I go to Vegas I do not go to win money but i wear my poker clothing. I know that the odds are with the house. I do like to play video poker because I have read that the odds of winning are better than other slot machines. There are many games as well as slot machines that are based on eastern themes. There are so many different poker machines to choose from. My video poker strategy, unlike many others is not to go for the royal flush at every opportunity. I tend to start with the nickel machines and if I am winning switch over to quarters. Now with the majority of machines in Vegas you can switch over which denomination you want to play right on the machine, also many of the machines give a choice of which poker game you want to play such as jokers wild, deuces wild multiple hands etc. My video poker strategy is to check the pay tables. I want to play machines that are going to return my bet for three of a kind or two pairs. Also you will find that the games that include a wild card, such as jokers wild and deuces wild, the pay backs are less. You want to sit at a machine that pays a minimum of a thousand credits for a royal flush.
The royal flush is the ultimate hand and prize when playing poker. My video poker strategy, unlike many others is not to go for the royal flush at every opportunity. I used to do this when I first started playing video poker and found that I was losing many hands by doing this. It was through watching others gamble thought I started thinking about how wagering started. I have found that by holding the pair I have a great chance of getting three or four of a kind, a much better chance than getting a Royal Flush. My best video poker strategy is to cash out of a machine any time I have doubled my money.
