Online Video Poker - All The Fun, None of the Travel

By: Gen Wright

Just as slot machines have captivated the patrons of casino's worldwide, so too has video poker. But what about those of us who can't afford to head to Atlantic City every weekend to play? Fear not my fellow readers, for I have found the Holy Grail. I shall name it: Online Video Poker.

From its humble beginnings in 1979, Video poker has captivated the world with its stunning lights and mesmerizing sounds. But now, the lights and sounds can come from your own desktop computer or laptop. Online Video Poker, one of the main stables in the Virtual Casino industry has taken the internet by storm. The beauty of it is, you don't have to go anywhere to enjoy its enticing beauty, and it is just like being in a real casino.

Online Video Poker works the same way weather you are sitting in Las Vegas, or sitting in your living room. You deposit money, press a few buttons and (hopefully) collect your winnings. So why on earth would anyone want to play online, when they could get the real thing and the same result?

The answer my friends is simple, convenience. Imagine you are where I am. A small town, the nearest city is an hour away. The town rolls up at midnight, and the only entertainment on the streets is watching the traffic lights blink yellow. Depressing isn't it? Now you know what I go through. But the beauty is, I can simply hop on my computer fire up some software, and in a few moments I'm playing online video poker (and losing my shirt at it.)

For those of us who have those travel restrictions, online video poker is the ultimate substitute. The home of these wonderful machines, online casinos, usually offer vegas-style odds, so you get that Vegas feel without the five hundred dollar a night hotel rate. Plus you don't have to pay for all those extras. You want a beer? Go to the fridge and get it. Have to go to the bathroom? Don't worry about collecting your winnings, waiting for that infernal ticket to print, or all the coins to drop into the tray, then hope you have a chip bucket big enough (don't we wish) JUST GO! Your game will still be there, the old lady next to you won't take your machine. In fact the only thing you have to worry about is a power failure, and even then your money is still safe, because its linked to an account that only you have the username and password (unless you are married, then you might have to worry about your spouse)

If you are like me, and you just can't afford to hop on a plane every night and fly to Las Vegas or Atlantic City, or wherever your nearest casino is, online video poker is the perfect solution. You can sit in your comfortable chair, drop the cash off your credit card, and play to your hearts content. Its just like being in the real thing, it pays the same, and as far as I'm concerned, it's a lot more fun.
