Q. Other than the reasons just given, what else makes Bovada the best online casino for video poker players?

A. One of the main reasons Bovada surpasses its competitors when it comes to video poker is Video Poker Wednesdays. Every Wednesday, Bovada gives video poker players the chance to win a piece of a $5,200 prize pool via a random draw as well as the opportunity to earn a $52 cash bonus simply by playing the game they love. For every $52 you gamble playing video poker, you will get an entry into the draw. If you accumulate 52 entries during a given Wednesday, Bovada will give you a $52 cash bonus. If one of your entries is chosen in the draw, you will win an additional $520.

Q. Which of the major online video poker games should I play to get the best payouts?

A. The navigation menu at the top of the page is sorted in order of payout percentages of the top online video poker games. Joker Poker is the only common game at mainstream online casinos that pays over 100%. It has a return of 100.0460% for max coins at some casinos. 2 Ways Royal is also good at 99.7977% for max coins. Aces & Eights is another excellent option for US players coming in at 99.7918% for max coins. You can use our video poker trainer tool for Aces & Eights to master that version of video poker.

Q. What good is a non-cashable bonus?

A. While true that a non-cashable bonus is clearly less appealing than a cashable bonus, non-cashable bonuses are still great in that they give you free money to play with in the casino once you have lost your initial deposit amount. It essentially functions like an interest-free loan from the casino that you have to repay when you win and cash out. It's different from a loan from the bank though, since if you also lose that bonus amount, you're in no way obligated to pay them back. So, put another way, the casino is staking you at no cost, and they're happy to take the losses should you not manage to win back your money.

Q. What are the games with the best payout tables at each online casino? In other words, at a particular casino, what video poker game should I play to maximize my edge?

A. Check out our casino reviews for this info. They show the best games at the top of each casino page. You can also consult our comprehensive Video Poker Online table which can be sorted by clicking the column headings (Casino, Game, Payout %) to get a complete listing. Generally games like Joker Poker, 2 Ways Royal and Aces & Eights (works with our video poker trainer) have among the best return percentages at most casinos.

Q. I want to play a particular video poker game. Which casino offers the best payout table for my favorite game?

A. Our video poker game pages like Double Bonus Poker show a comprehensive list of casinos that offer the game, listed in order from best payout to worst. You can also check out William's Promo Codes for the latest online casino promotions.
