Video poker is fun and exciting. People who play internet slots love video poker, and people who play poker love it too. One of the reasons people love this game is because almost anyone can learn to play well. But one of the questions on many beginners’ minds is how to get started at playing video poker.

The easiest way to get started playing video poker is by playing online, because almost all online casinos offer free video poker games. These “play money” or “play for fun” video poker games play in exactly the same manner as the real money versions, so you can get as much practice and experience under your belt as you like without risking any cash at all. A new trend in online betting sites lately is to have “.net” versions of their casinos which offer nothing but free games.
Some people might question the worth of playing free video poker games online. They’re the same kind of people who don’t believe in drinking non-alcoholic beer, or decaffeinated coffee, or sex without penetration. They think, “What’s the point?” To an extent, I agree with this line of reasoning. What’s the point in gambling if you’re not going to put any money at risk? That’s not really gambling at all…
But the use for free video poker games is as a learning tool. Why should you risk losing large amounts of bankroll if your skill level is so poor that you’re just going to be giving the casinos a bigger house edge than they already have?
The whole reason for playing this particular game in the first place is so that you can minimize the house advantage. The only way to succeed in that goal is to know how to play well. And the best way to learn how to play well is by practicing.
