I am sure you have plenty of hobbies and pastimes other than Formula 1, and some of you out there are bound to enjoy gambling and will set aside a little bit of time every now and then to play your favourite casino games responsibly.
The best way to look at gambling is as a fun and entertaining way of passing some time, but one that is ultimately going to cost you some money, as the odds are always going to be against you no matter what games you choose to play.
Having said that, and with the advent of both online and mobile casino sites, a new generation of gamblers have embraced those two gaming environments and are always going to be seeking out games to play that give them the best chance of winning.
Failing that, they will be looking for games that are designed in such a way they get some value in playing them, that often simply being by them getting a tad more play time out of their bankroll.
When it comes to the games that do boast the highest possible paybacks, video poker variants are the most sought after games at any casino site, as they often come with the highest payout percentages of any casino game category.
But, as there is a tiny element of skill involved in playing video poker games, that skill being knowing which the best cards are to hold once a player has been dealt out their initial five playing cards, one thing all players should be doing, is activating the auto hold option setting attached to most variants.
By having that option setting turned on and in play, once the first five cards are dealt out then the software will automatically hold the best cards in that hand for you, using the optimum playing strategy for the variant being played.
Now that you know that handy playing tip, let me move onto just which variants to seek out online, those being the ones that have pay tables attached to them that offer the highest payout percentages.
Also, be aware that you will need to select your chosen site at which to play the following games carefully, and those should ideally be ones that offer games from the game designers mentioned below.
When playing at a Microgaming software-powered casino site, make a beeline to play their All Aces variant of video poker, for when you discover that the long-term expected payout percentage of that variant is a mind-blowing 99.92%, you will understand why it is at the top of most players games to play.
Jacks or Better video poker is one of the most popular variants played online and in land-based casinos, and most pay tables attached to that game are designed with a payout percentage of 99.54%, however, when playing at any casino offering the NetEnt-designed variant you will discover their pay table returns a slightly higher 99.56%.
Online casino sites that operate using the Party Gaming range of games are not ones that you will discover offer a massive range of video poker games, but you will discover a Joker Poker game available.
That game has been designed to return to players over the long term 99.82% of their stakes as winning payouts, and as such, that is a game to have high up on your list of games to play when you visit one of those sites online.
Another thing to be aware of and this is important, if you do decide to play video poker in any playing environment, it is important that you always play the maximum coin bet on each hand you play off, for you will often discover a much lower set of payouts listed upon the pay table of such games when they are being played for anything less than maximum coin stakes.
But always keep in mind too that each of the many different variants of video poker, much like all other casino games, are all completely random, so whilst the paybacks may be high you could experience either a winning streak or a losing streak at any time, so never get too carried away when playing.
