Video Poker is a game of skill.  In effect, it is giant game of math probability.  If you spend enough time studying the game, it can become a profitable hobby.  During the mid-1990s, Aileen was a member of a senior group that would take bus trips to Laughlin, Nevada.  Lorna and I would go on some of those trips when they needed help to fill a bus.  On one particular trip to the Flamingo Laughlin, there was a video poker seminar given by Bob Dancer as part of the package.  I attended that seminar and learned for the first time that educated players could have an advantage over the house if they had the discipline to study the games and only play on certain machines.  I have been using the Dancer method and having free trips now for over 25 years.  [JAM 6/13/2020]
