Playing online Video Poker is a different experience than casino
Video Poker, but it's the same game, rules, and expectancies. The
difference lies in everything else. What's everything else? Well, everything!
The Video Poker "machine" is now a piece of software (don't
worry, that's all it every was inside the casino machine anyway!) running
on your personal computer. The casino environment has been replaced with
your computer room. The Vegas you can't see because casinos don't have
windows, has been replaced with your hometown.
Playing online Video Poker is playing the same game, the same way you're
used to. The added advantage of being in your own environment gives you
a lot, more than most people expect. Las Vegas is built around distracting
you; it's a huge part of their business. They serve you free alcohol to
impair your senses, they but mesmerizing carpet patters that never lead
out of the place, they take out all clocks and windows so you don't know
what time it is, or even exactly where you are! Is all of this distraction
accidental? Don't count on it. Las Vegas is all about details, and it
costs them a lot of money to distract you so well. The reason they're
willing to spend that money is because they know they make it back ten-fold
from the bumbling of their patrons.
But as a Video Poker player you're already a step ahead, and less likely
to be taken in right? After all, Video Poker is the smartest game to play
in the casino, so it must attract the smartest players! If so, then you
aught to find a significant shift to the online world among Video Poker
players. There is such a shift starting, but it probably hasn't really
hit yet. Once people realize that online Video Poker has as much to offer
as a trip to the casino, they'll start to think about staying in for entertainment
a little more.
