I recently completed an analysis of 14 popular varieties of online video poker, inlcuding Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Joker Poker, and more. The analysis covers over 200 online gambling sites that run 16 popular versions of online gambling software from vendors like Microgaming, Realtime Gaming, Rival, Bodog, and others.
I’ve published the paytables and house edge (calculated using this excellent analyzer at Wizard of Odds) for each variety of online video poker. You can use this information to determine the best online gambling site to play your favorite variety of online video poker.Some interesting tidbits that I discovered in conducting this analysis:
- Of all the online video poker games analyzed, Bodog had the lowest house edge of any game from any vendor — they deal Joker Poker with a 0.03 house edge.
- Aces and Faces video poker appears to be the same no matter where you play it — the paytables from all 6 vendors that deal Aces and Faces video poker are identical.
- For some games, there is a huge difference in the house edge. For example, there is a more than 7% difference between the best and worst Deuces Wild video poker games that you can find at online gambling sites. (For the record, Rival Gaming casinos like BetUS offers the best Deuces Wild video poker with a 0.63 house edge.)
