E-5: Video Poker vs Slot Machines

The difference is that video poker players have to make decisions that affect the outcome of the game, whereas with slots the player has no input and the game is completely random.

Video Poker

  • The player has to choose the machine
  • How many credits to play
  • What cards to hold during the game
  • All these decisions greatly affect the
    outcome of the game and will mean the difference between a winning or losing
Slot Machines

  • Players have no decisions to make
  • They are completely random
  • Almost all of them have the same payout
The only reason you should be selecting what slot to play, is for the entertainment value the game offers.

With video poker a player can grind out a consistent profit when playing correct strategy, while slot machines are always a losing bet in the long term.
