Where to Play Online Poker?

Selecting an online poker room can be a difficult task. There are so many excellent fastest payout casinos, that it makes one wonder which is actually the best. That being said, every beginner should know how to select an online fastest payout casino. The rooms listed on our site were picked using the protocols I am about to share with you, which you should commit to memory anyhow, in case you find yourself looking for another poker room to play at later on down the road.

Our Criterias for selecting the fastest payout casinos: 

Take Your Time to Find the Best Bonuses. Some poker fastest payout casinos will offer no obligatory free cash in small amounts, while others will offer large sums that impose wager requirements. The question to ask yourself is just how healthy is your bankroll – and how good of a player are you. If you are very good at playing poker, you may be able to get by turning a $50 bankroll into $500. However, if you are like most players, you will need a substantial amount to survive on. Besides, you should be joining at least three to four poker rooms at one time to take advantage of all the bonuses you can. Be sure to split your money up accordingly, so you have enough to open multiple accounts at more than one fastest payout casino or poker room.

Choose Your Table Wisely – In other words, only play at tables with less experienced players like yourself. Generally, this means you will need to start off at tables with smaller stake limits (which you should be doing anyways). If you are unsure, and find that many of the players are gambling very aggressively, get out as soon as you can and find another table. Most poker rooms will let you look at other player profiles to give you an idea of who you are up against.

Test out the Software – Software is different from poker room to poker room, especially in terms of graphics and playability. Be sure to look for software that enables several different playing modes (multi-tables, private groups, table views), has a place for taking and saving notes, reveals table stats (pot size, player stats, table history), and gives quick access to game rules, such as rake schedules and stake limits. Above all, be sure the graphics are realistic and stimulating.

Winning Video Poker Strategy

Most video poker machines offer returns of over 95% and some even offer returns over 100%! But you must play these machines correctly in order to get these returns. Here’s how:

Learn the rules of the game.
Make sure you know the rules of the video poker game before you sit down in poker room to play.

Learn the different types of payout hands.

Different video poker machines offer payouts for different types of poker hands. Generally, the more wild cards there are in a game, the better the poker hand has to be in order to receive a payout. Usually the games which have no wild cards offer a payout for a pair of Jacks or better. The Joker’s Wild games usually offer a payout for two pair or any hand with a joker. The Deuces Wild games usually don’t payout unless you have three of a kind or better.
Know who your opponent is.
You are playing in poker room against the video poker machine, not other players. Your goal is to get the highest payout hand possible. Therefore it makes no sense to try to bluff the machine by keeping unwanted cards or discarding favorable cards. You should always keep only the cards that have the best chance of yielding the largest payout.
Pick out the video poker machine that you are going to play.
All video poker machines and poker rooms are not equal. Different machines offer different returns so it’s a good idea to pick a favorable one. Also, it is a good idea to learn how to play one machine before learning another one since the playing strategies are different between the machines also. So how do you find out what the expected return is on a particular machine? There is a video poker program that can do this for you.
Always bet the maximum amount when favorable.
All the progressive payout machines and even many of the others offer more favorable payouts when the maximum bet is placed. On these machines, your expected winnings will increase when you place the maximum bet. You can tell if a machine offers a statistical advantage for maximum bets by multiplying the payout for a single coin by five. If the payout for five coins is greater than this then it offers a statistical advantage. For example, if a Royal Flush offers a payout of 500 coins when you bet one coin and 4000 when you bet five coins, 4000 is more than 500 * 5 = 2500 therefore you should always bet five coins.
Learn how to play the hands for maximum profits.
This is the hardest step because there are 2,598,960 possible different poker hands in a standard 52 card deck. To make matters worse, the type of game (Standard Draw, Joker’s Wild, and Deuces Wild) and the payout table for each of these games can alter which cards are the best ones to discard for maximum expected returns. Probably the best way to learn is to have a tutor watching you play who tells you which cards are the best to discard. There is a video poker program that can do this for you. This program also can automatically create a set of rules that you should follow in order to realize the maximum returns of a particular video poker machine.

Become a Professional Player in Video Poker Games

Yes, a player has the best odds playing Video Poker. Hard to believe, isn’t it? After all, Video Poker looks just like any other slot machine, where whether you win or lose basically depends on how lucky you are at that particular instant and whether the machine you are playing on is ‘hot’. This perception, however, is not true. First, each Video Poker machine in Nevada (and New Jersey, I believe… I am not certain about other parts of the country) must be fair. In other words, it always randomly shuffles a single deck of cards after each hand. Second, unlike slot machines, where one generally has no idea what the real payoff rates are, the payoff for each Video Poker machine is clearly indicated on the Payoff Table, displayed prominantly on each machine. For the statistically inclined, you can calculate the payoff rate for each machine. For the rest of us, I will provide some information on this page, as well as related links that provide more detailed information. A word of caution: DIFFERENT MACHINES HAVE DIFFERENT PAYOFF TABLES!!

For example, sometimes you will see two regular ‘Jacks-or-Better’ machines right next to each other, and one pays 9 coins for a Full House, the other pays 8. The choice should be obvious: You should play on the one that pays 9 coins. Yet many people just sit down without even so much as taking a look at the payoff table.

Given the above introduction, here are the rules for taking advantage of this statistically-beatable game:

1. Play ‘Full-Pay’ Video Poker machines. The definition of a ‘Full-Pay’ machine is one that have the highest payoff rate for that type of game. If the player utilizes optimal strategy, this rate is often close to (sometimes even exceeding) 100%. For example, full-pay Jacks-or-Better machines have a payoff rate of 99.54%, and full-pay Deuces Wild games have a payoff rate of 100.76%. There are two catches: First, one needs to find such machines (as you can imagine, they are not the most popular types of video poker machines); second, one needs to be familiar with the optimal strategy, which is different for different types of games. Be warned: It is very difficult to be expert in more than two types of video poker games. I find the easiest way to train is to purchase a video poker software program that teaches you how to play, one of which (the one I use), Video Poker U, is listed in the Links Section. Through repetition, I become familiar with the optimal strategy. The advantage of learning the optimal strategy in this fashion is that one does not need to spend a lot of time memorizing which cards to keep in each situation. Through repetition, you will instantly know what the correct move is most of the time.

2. ALWAYS play 5 coins. This applies whether you are playing a nickel machine, a quarter machine, a dollar machine, or a $5 machine (yikes!) This is simply because the best payoff rate is achievable only when 5 coins are played.

3. Whenever you go to a casino, ALWAYS join a slot club even if you don’t plan to play. (This applies to all kinds of casino gaming activities.) And always remember to stick your slot club card into the machine when you play (even if you decide to play slots) so that your plays are recorded. You might be pleasantly surprised by the type of offers you’ll get through the casino slot clubs. In addition, most slot clubs offer cash back as well as complimentary meals/rooms. For example, New York New York in Las Vegas offers 0.67% cash back through its slot club. This makes the Jacks-or-Better machines there having an effective payoff rate of over 100%!

4. Take a break once in a while. It is very easy to get tired in a casino when you play Video Poker, and my experience has been that it is best to take a break once in a while, say every 30 minutes or so. If I do not take a break beyond that point, I find myself starting to make mistakes. The break needs not be long. It should just be long enough to refresh yourself.

Determining if you have a live flush combination

If you have a three-flush starting hand, the other door cards you have viewed will determine the odds of you hitting your flush. You are counting how many of the cards on your table are of the same suit as your flush draw. In later rounds, for anyone else who is showing a flush-draw in their up-cards, you will need to know how live their flush is before continuing to bet or call.

A general rule of thumb to determine the odds of you hitting your flush at a full table is; if there are more than two players (excluding yourself) showing the suit you need to make your flush, consider your flush dead. If the table is short-handed you may call for one bet. Especially if you have other outs. If any cards that turn at fourth street that you need for your flush appear in other player’s hands, really consider your flush a long-shot. At a short-handed table you may adjust the fourth street rule to suck-out a back-door flush, however the door-card suit-count rule should remain the same; consider the flush dead if there are more than two of the same suit you need in other players’ hands.

Determining if you have a live straight combination

If you have a combination in your starting hand to possibly hit a straight, you will be looking to see that the cards that you need to complete your straight are still live. In later rounds, for anyone else who is showing a straight draw, you will need to know how live their straight is. If you have a connector combination such as 789 and you see 5’s, 6’s, 10’s, or J’s around the table, consider your straight dead. Also consider that if you see other 7’s, 8’s and 9’s at the table, the cards that you need to make pairs for this hand should be considered dead to your draw.

Two Pair Play

If you have a combination in your hand where you can make two-pair, you want to see who’s cards may be higher than yours. You will also be looking to see if the cards you need for pairs will still be live or if they are out of play.

The first player to raise the bring-in bet has a fairly strong combination. Most likely a pocket pair or split pair. The position that they raise from may determine if they are attempting to steal the pot or if they really have a hand to play.

Other notes to remember for low and medium stakes tables:

At low-stakes tables, players do not like to fold. Especially in card rooms. They’ll bet and call just about anything, and being in a hand usually means you’re going to end up in a heavy multi-way hand where there is a lot of action and money the winning pot is a very good amount. When nobody likes to fold and you are playing strong combinations, be aggressive. Don’t fall into the trap where you’re playing crappy combinations because other players at your table don’t know how to fold and start with crappy combo’s themselves. Use it to your advantage and play strong opening combinations with aggressive betting strategy and take the pot.

There are also tables where they will play crappy combos to the river calling all of your raises just for the hell of it, or maybe they caught something great on their crappy combo. This can be extremely frustrating and costly. Continuing to play tight and aggressively at a table like this will eventually get them to wake up and play better hands when the chips keep moving to your side of the table after show-down and you’ve been playing strong consistently.

For online play, my experience is that the players at the table usually play pretty straight-up, with little bluffing and will fold in earlier rounds when they know the cards in their hand are beaten.

The longer you sit at a table with the same players, the more you get a feel for their strategy, what they raise and call with, and how easy or difficult it is for them to fold. Take mental notes about each player and adjust your strategy according to which players are in the hand with you. Bet aggressively to fold-out the weakest player(s). Have a made hand to call bets against another strong or aggressive player.
Check and call or check and fold to players who are known for consistently having real hands and compare yours to theirs.

Learn About the Stud Poker to Play New Game!

There are several benefits of stud poker over draw poker. In draw, there are only two betting rounds, one before the discarding of cards and one afterwards. Further, you have very little data to evaluate your opponents’ hands, thus basing your game a lot on probabilities and very little on facts.

In 5-card Stud, each player initially receives one card down and one card facing up. A round of betting ensues, before the players receive one more card up and another round of betting starts. In total, the players receive four cards up and one down, and there are four rounds of betting.

7 Card Stud

Seven-Card Stud explores the traits of Stud Poker even further, and is recognized as the most widely played variant after WWII. Seven cards are dealt to each player, of which the first two and the last are face down. The best poker hand, of five cards chosen from the seven in a player’s hand, wins the game. With a lot of open cards and lost cards, and a total of five betting rounds, there’s something here to cater to all tastes; it appeals to the psychologist and the mathematician in you. The downside is that this is also one of the most difficult types of poker to master. And the increased number of betting rounds also ensures higher pots – a feature if you like high-risk play, a downside you don’t.

7 Card Stud: Strategy

It is important to remember to adjust the strategy you are using to your specific table. Constant adjustment and focus in this game is critical.

Strategy is adjusted for the following;

Table stakes.
Type of stud game.
The cards on the table. (and in your hand)
Demeanor of your opponents.
Number of players at the table.
Number of players in the betting rounds.

The following information is used to determine whether to play the cards you have in your hand at a full table or not. For the actual starting hand combinations and strategy, choose the link at the top that describes which game you would like to view the starting-hand strategy for.

Things to keep in mind

In any seven card stud game there are some essential things that you will be focusing on when the starting hand (the first three cards dealt to each player) is dealt out. If you lose your focus on these things at any time, it could cost you the hand. If you weren’t paying close enough attention to these things or were distracted during the deal, it is probably best to fold your hand immediately. You will probably not remember the cards specifically on later streets, however, you will generally have a ‘feel’ for if an opponent’s hand is real or if it is a bluff.

When the starting hand is dealt and all the door cards are showing you will need to do this as quickly as possible before players start folding their hands:

Look at all of the door cards showing around the table.

Count how many of each suit is out.

Look at what card numbers are out.

Remember which player was the first to raise the bring-in bet (if any) and how far away they are in position from the bring-in.

Remember if the player with the bring-in bet calls any raises.

Let the table know that you are not afraid to raise and re-raise.

Let the table know that you can lay down a very good hand, even after re-raising.

Why do these things matter? Depending on what you have in your own hand, having general knowledge about the other cards on the table will determine whether you call, raise, or fold. If the cards in your hand combination are live, you will have a higher rate of success in achieving a winning end result.

Again, if cards have been folded around the table, and you have missed the opportunity to view those door cards, be inclined to fold unless you have a super-strong hand and nobody has yet raised the bring-in.

You are not only counting the cards for your own hand, you are counting cards and suits to determine what is live for other player’s hands for later rounds as well.

If your cards are not live, then fold.

If you find on fifth street that you are chasing to make a hand against an aggressive better, it is best that you probably fold. Of course, you may not know this until show-down and you’ve lost. Use the experience of knowing when you are chasing cards for your hand against a player betting aggressively, that they probably already have a made hand and fold earlier next time. In the late streets they are highly unlikely to fold what they’ve invested into the pot when they’ve been betting aggressively.

BEST LOOKING VIDEO GAMES SO FAR

The technologies and the video games were always closely entwined, so it is normal that with time the graphics in video games are getting better. The games we can play today are a far cry from what we considered astonishing nearly ten years ago and the examples we are about to show you demonstrate how this trend will continue in future.

Far Cry 5image on main post

Coming up just after Christmas, the new Far Cry title is already stirring a lot of attention. And if we only look at the history of the game we can justify it by seeing how this game started.

The history is truly always repeating, and we all remember how revolutionary the first FC was and how highly acclaimed it was.

The same can be said for the new title, featuring an open world for us to explore, a lot of masterfully modeled beasts to fight and a stone-age setting we haven’t seen a lot of so far.

Mafia 3

The new installment of this fantastic franchise is moving the boundaries once more with the amazing looking story of the 70s mafia life. A huge sandbox world that you can explore looks amazing. You can drive, shoot, interact and complete missions while enjoying all this game has to offer. Combine it all with the amazing story Mafia series are known for and you get a winning recipe for an award winning game.

Kingdom Come 2

Heralded as the best looking medieval simulation, KC2 is sure to turn a few heads this year. We have tested the game, and it looks amazing. Just. Amazing. The rendering and the lighting are excellent, even though the beta we tried still has some bugs and sound problems – there is nothing to take away from the graphics. If you want to get a real experience of medieval times, weapons and fights – look no further.

Dead Island 2

Sequel to the critically acclaimed Dead Island promises a lot. With this zombie flick set in the sandbox world of the west coast in the USA you will get a chance to go crazy fighting the zombie plague. Interaction with the surrounding items and objects, great AI, and incredible graphics are just some of the perks of this game. If you like the dark humor that seems to follow zombies like the plague (excuse the pun) you are going to love this game, too. Shoot, blow up, drive over and escape the zombies in one million different ways.

Mirror’s Edge 2

When the ME first hit the shelves, it was revolutionary in the games industry, and the sequel is looking to go even further. As before, we will be put inside the shoes of a protagonist – master of urban running, fighting and thrill seeking. This time, there will be an open world map that you will be able to explore while you jump, run on walls and slide over the buildings. No loading screens, just endless action in the authentic looking amazing world of Mirror’s Edge.

EPIC RACING GAMES YOU CAN’T MISS OUT ON

The sound of tires screeching on the asphalt, the heavy metal thunder of engines, exciting corners, and thrilling speed is what you get once you set foot in the world of racing games.

As a way of excitement, these games started fascinating us back in the days of old school gaming machines that offered crude almost 8-bit versions of the racing track simulators.

Today, just like everything else, they evolved to the limits of real immersion. Take a look at the unforgettable titles every race fan has to know by now.

Need For Speed series

From the first day NFS: Underground appeared in the stores, I can remember playing it and thinking how the human knowledge and achievements know no limits. Since then, the franchise has seen dozens of reboots, sequels, and new titles to make you fall in love with the speed.

Some were better, some were not, but the conclusion we must draw from it all is that you can’t go around claiming to be a gamer if you never tried an NFS video game.

If you like the car tuning scene, wild illegal city races, cops chases and much more, this is a video game for you. Some of the titles even offer the sportier versions where you run on the race tracks, and there is also an online game where you can play with friends on the internet and test your skills.

Collin McRae series

Named after the racing legend, CMR series brought a lot of fun to many a childhood. This super real and immersive race simulation will put you behind the wheel of a racing car and allow you to test your skills on some of the world’s most famous racing tracks.

With several sequels, CMR will bring you into a dessert, dirt roads, back alleys and top class race tracks where you will be able to enjoy the almost too real racing experience.

Your car will break down, and you will have to fix it in between race stages, damage management will become a real thing while you attempt to conquer the leading charts. There are not many games like this one so make sure to test it and see if it suits you.

FlatOut

Now, here is a video game you won’t forget that easily. If the games we mentioned are too bland for your taste, we suggest you try any of the FlatOut titles. They are sure to entertain you. You may love or hate the racing games; one thing is for sure – everybody loved FlatOut!

The game features demolition derby style racing, where your car can be destroyed and once you hit a wall, your driver can be ejected through the window.

This useful feature was best-taken advantage of in the mini-games the game offered where you were able to play darts by ejecting your character through the windshield or see how far or high it can “jump.”

TIPS, TRICKS AND HACKS YOU CAN USE IN AGAR.IO

Despite being such a simple game, there are a few tricks and cheats you can use to get better at Agar.io. Agar.io is a really popular game that can be played on your internet browser.

As long as your browser has Java installed, and it has got an internet connection, you can have quite a bit of fun in Agar.io.

Agar.io is played with other players on the internet. The goal of Agar.io is to grow bigger and eat other players. This is because Agar.io places players in the role of cells.

As a single cell organism, your task is to survive. And to survive you will need to get larger and larger, which you can accomplish by eating other smaller cells.

This gameplay has made Agar.Io widely popular, with millions of people around the world playing such a simple biological simulation game. The challenge of the game is not to get eaten and to keep eating to grow bigger. This is easier said than done because other cells are so big, and it could take a long time for you to get that size.

Don’t worry though, there are some tips and tricks that you can do that can speed you to the competitive size that you need to become a cell large enough to challenge other players. Here are some things that you can do to hack your way to the top of Agar.io.

If you want just mere tips to help you in the game, there are a few things you can do to make Agar.io easy to play.

One thing you can do is to watch how many cells you divide into. Dividing into more cells gives you more range, but it can also make your more vulnerable.

As you divide into more cells, you have to control more objects and your cells also become smaller which makes you vulnerable as larger cells may catch and eat you.

Another trick you can do when playing Agar.io is to stay at the border of the screen when chasing bigger cells. This will make your smaller cell harder to spot and chase. You just have to take care to keep your cell just out of reach, to avoid getting eaten.
