Are you familiar with the video poker
game Pick 'em Poker? I have only seen the game on Bally Game
What are the best strategies to use to
have the best chance of winning on this game/machine?
For example, should you always take a
pair over a straight or flush? If two pair are offered on the
deal should you always take the higher pair?
Where is the best place to purchase a
reconditioned Game Maker machine. There are many Internet sites
offering the machine with varying prices, warranties, etc.
Thanks for any info you can offer.
Pick 'em Poker is a game you will find
only on Bally machines.
The best strategy to use is a
mathematically derived one. I recommend the Frugal Video Poker
strategy card (www.frugalgambler.biz).
As to whether it is better to take a pair
over a straight or a flush, it depends. You would hold a high
pair over everything but a 3-card royal flush with no ace. As
for the low pair versus a straight or flush, you would hold the
low pair unless you had a three-card royal, a flush with two or
three high cards, an outside straight with three high cards, an
outside straight flush, an inside straight flush, or a double
inside straight flush with one or more high cards.
I've never purchased a reconditioned
machine, so I don't have any firsthand experience. If I were to
buy one, I would go to The Gambler's General Store in Las
Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
Pick'em Poker is available at all
