Video poker is great fun to play and there are many sites offering the game. When you first try it, you might well stay with the first site you land on for a while but once you are familiar with the game, you will probably start scouting around to see what else is out there. Many things are a case of personal preference, but if you play video poker a lot you might find that you are making a bit of money at it, so you will want to find the best site for payouts and bonuses.
If you play for an hour or more a night, you will want to make sure that your online video poker site is attractive to play on. Some people prefer a simple look to the screen, others prefer things to be a little more fun-based, with flashing lights and sound effects. This is really very much a personal choice, so you might be tempted to stick with the first one that pleases you visually. It is worth looking into the financial aspect as well, though, as the differences can be quite worth exploring.
Welcome bonuses can be very tempting. These will often depend on how much you deposit when you start playing but usually come with rules and regulations on what you can withdraw. This is understandable, but it might mean that your winnings are locked in for a while. If you make losses these will be deducted from your deposit first; as an example if your welcome bonus is to double your deposit and you put in £50 then lose £50 without winning (unlikely, but possible) the £50 remaining will be your welcome bonus and won’t be withdrawable. It is important to make sure of these rules before you deposit and begin to play.
You don’t have to stick with just one site, you can actually sign up with as many as you like, subject to your having enough funds at your disposal to make the most of the welcome bonuses. This is actually a good hands-on way to see what the payouts are in the real world, rather than in the statistical information on the site, so it is possibly the best way to identify the best sites. Some will only offer bonuses on joining, others will have monthly offers as well, so this is something to consider. You will find this out if you stay on the site for a little while, so it is quite important to make sure that you hang around for long enough to find these things out. You should also try to make sure that you play regularly on the sites you choose, so that you are getting the same offers for the same reasons – that you are a good customer, who comes back regularly and tops up on a reliable basis. You have to compare like with like if you are trying to compare sites and this will take a bit of time, but you will be having fun playing video poker in the meantime, so this isn’t the hard work it may sound like!
