The easy to learn tactics and handy hand calculator will turn you into an expert in no time. Great for both beginners and experts. - Easy to memorize tactics - Three levels of training game - Odds shown for any hand - Use Hand Analyzer to see exactly what to hold - Read the Strategy Guide to learn the secrets of the pros - Use Real Play to simulate a real machine What do people say? "I wish I had this in vegas last weekend. All these moves I thought were smart, I've learned otherwise. Very helpful indeed. Love the interface!" "Unlike other poker apps, this actually teaches you how to win! Instead of throwing some random cards at you, it challenges you with specific scenarios. I was surprised to learn that I was picking the wrong cards for years! " This application uses a unique method to teach you how to win at video poker. Each of the three levels of training give you ten different scenarios to choose from. To simulate these edge conditions, we provide over 4000 combinations of hands make it tougher to see the patterns. Your goal is to get all 14 right out of 14. Each time you play, your score will improve! For example, which do you think is better? A Hi Pair or three cards of a Royal Flush? How about four of a flush or a low pair? After you choose which cards to hold, it tells you which cards you should keep and why. Before you know it, you will be an expert at recognizing patterns and instinctively choosing the right cards! Ever get a hand but don't really know what to hold? Use the Card Analyzer to tell you exactly what to do! The analyzer calculates the average payout of all possible hands you could get for each combination of cards you could hold. It does over 1/2 million calculations in less than 1 second and gives you the perfect move!

Just bought app and it will not open up completely. Very frustrating
Give us an update!...please!

Just when I was starting to get a feel for the game...iOS update... now the App crashes. Please fix!
Great app when you’re sitting at a machine
by scott_jb on 2019/10/26 01:13
I love this app. I use it whenever I’m at the casino. You can put the cards that you have in the analyzer and it will tell you what to do. The latest update crashes after every hand which is a bummer, but I’ll still use the app.

Good layout and easy to use if Jack’s or better is your only game.
Our go-to App in Reno
by VP Pro on 2019/07/06 18:34
Have use the app at riverboat casinos in Indiana, in Vegas, on cruise ships and annually in Reno. We are pretty good, but the app keeps us sharp in “Training Mode” before we gamble with real money. Then in “Analyze” mode, we can enter the cards on the machine to see our best hold. That feature alone is worth the price of the app.
Nice VP trainer
by bearswalker on 2019/02/28 18:35
I especially like the Real Play feature. I’ve asked for a couple enhancements, but I haven’t noticed any bugs. I like to use a VP trainer in the weeks before a Vegas trip, to knock down the cobwebs. I also like to drink while I’m training for that casino ambiance. :-) This trainer has met my needs.
Good Trainer

Works great! Wish there was a capability to mute the sound. Still makes a racket even with the iPad muted
Excellent App
by Educator M. on 2018/07/05 16:59
This is how I learned to play Video Poker. It was recommended to me from FB - Solo Las Vegas. To make things even better I received a reply when asking a question via Email! Great App.
Great pregame exercise
by Brian the Truth on 2018/05/22 00:23
I’m able to get the rust off before making it to the casino. I’m very pleased by the free play, tests, and references available. Easily one of my favorite apps and by far the best JoB on the App Store.
Great app!
by MGZLV on 2018/04/24 03:25
The perfect app for practicing Jacks or Better—a popular game that is also foundational for learning more complex video poker games. Lots of good features—you can edit the pay tablet to reflect the game you’re playing, you can practice hands and check the odds on your selection, and obviously, just enjoy “playing.” One feature I love is being able to enter a specific hand and analyze the correct move if you get stumped. This is a *must* for anyone who is planning to play for real $ and wants to come out on the winning side over the long term.
Great App easily worth 99¢
by daredman1970 on 2017/09/22 20:14
Really love this app. Been using it for awhile now to help increase my percentage of correct holds in VP. More correct holds equals more money in my pocket. it pays for itself almost immediately.
VP Trainer is a Great App!
by Steve Deas on 2017/06/01 14:14
I have used VP Trainer many years with much success. My wife and I visit casinos quite often and use the trainer when ever in doubt as to which is the better hand to hold working toward the Royal Flush. My routine is listening to soft jazz on iPhone with VP Trainer near-by to second guess a difficult hand.
Fix the math please.
by kbCaptain on 2014/10/28 18:28
This has been a good app so far, but I've noticed the pay amount is wrong on many of the options for different pay scales. I am worried the entire app is inaccurate.
This is the best

Very disappointing
by Disappointing xyz on 2013/07/01 03:38
This app appeared to be a game, but it was only a training activity. VERY disappointing!
Worth a buck!
by Firefighter78 on 2013/06/06 18:09
Great detail for only a dollar. Use this at the casino and you will definitely get your dollar back. Thanks for a nice app.

Wish it had better stats to track your long term performance against optimal play, or the ability to just play without the training feature
You have to have this before playing!
by Oglalajigiugi on 2012/08/09 17:14
I was very impressed with the app; loads of info. Great not only for practicing, but unbelievably, let's you key in your EXACT cards and it tells you what to do. Things I have been doing for years and years were just plain wrong - thank you so much!

Good training for $.99!
Good game
by Al_bba on 2012/07/04 22:28
I didn't know how to play poker and within fifteen minutes I was able to grasp the basics. The game has different levels for more skilled players but you can still learn how to play poker using it. It has training levels with feedback coaching you.
Great App
by Njpoker on 2012/07/04 04:05

Great training vehicle & would have given you 5 Stars except I can't seem to mute the sound. Anybody else have that problem? I'm using an iPod Touch V.4
Hand Analyzer is great!
by Poker-Expert on 2012/06/27 00:52
The new Hand Analyzer is fantastic. So is the "real" play mode. Fantastic update.
Really Cool, very helpful
by A Bay Jay on 2012/06/25 21:52
There was a lot to learn, always thought "Bet Max" was a scam, and that a line of machines had the same payout for the same game - they don't ! Training mode useful, Analyze function PRICELESS!!
Boo boo
by Piggy 100 on 2012/06/18 14:00
Seems in line with other programs used. Wish would show coins spent re to coins earned
Ummm . . . huh???
by Necro1775 on 2012/06/13 11:07
So I got through the training, and was completely stoked about learning a few things that I had really been questioning, so I decided to test it out on the real play option. That was the point when 5 stars dropped to 3. Training: 10c (clubs), Jc, Ac, 7c, 4h (hearts) Suggested hold: 10c, Jc, Ac (for the royal) Real play suggested hold: 10c, Jc, Ac, 7c (for the flush) Well which is it?? 3 to the Royal or 4 to the flush?? I will say this though: This is the first time I've encountered a hypocritical software program. My only other gripe is the fact that there's no way to turn off the sound, and it makes some extremely loud and annoying sounds.

by HeyyyBarKeep on 2012/06/01 13:18
A lot of real thought went into this. It's easy to use. I'll be watching for the creator's name when selecting future training apps, assuming he makes more. Excellent.
Very very very nice

Awesome app!!!
by Evieluv on 2012/05/11 03:53
I really love this app! This app taught me how to play video poker. I have won 4 royal flushes. Recommend this app to people who do not know how to play. They should make other apps to help people like me learn other games.
A Most Used App
by payntar on 2012/04/17 07:26
Invaluable practice tool, always becomes a most used app before Vegas trips.
App is amazing!
by Kaktus_jak on 2012/04/03 19:45
I live in vegas and their is a video poker game on every corner this app has turned me into a pro. Just like the user below stated, the game tells you to hold tens and to go for a high pair except the name of the game is called jacks or better not 10's or better, except the only time it tells you to hold a ten is when the ten is the same suit of another high card like a jack or king. It tells you to go for the high pair but it really means go for the royal flush. I emailed the dev about this and they explained. if any of you have any idea's on how to make this app better email the dev's they listen and want feedback. This game is not flawed and works great!
Don't buy it!
by PoonLang on 2012/03/24 21:02
Do not buy this app for jacks or better as it states. Its flawed and will teach you wrong. It's almost great, but I think the casinos might be putting this out. 10s aren't as good as face cards. 10s are as good as a 3s. Along with other problems.
BEST EVER!
by bug1993112 on 2012/02/15 03:37
Finally an app that really teaches! This is the best app I have ever used. I wish I could put it on my computer too!
Great
by Junkocrap on 2012/02/12 18:10
Needs to have money in the free play mode so you can track your success
Great app
by Firsttimediet on 2012/02/04 18:30
With this trainer I've learned to play for the best hands. I now play video poker once a week at the casino and have won most of the time
Good stuff!
by Dang1320 on 2012/02/01 17:36
Awesome app!!!
Analyze function alone worth the buck!
by Jatszer on 2012/01/30 04:29
I'm pretty good already, but being able to enter the cards and find out what to do in tricky situations is priceless!! I practice with the Real Play function before I hit the casino, keeping my thumb over the advice message to see if I did the right thing before I look at it. Nice work! (I have used this at the casino and no one has told me to put it away yet)
Upgrade Request
by Corvus.Corax. on 2012/01/13 03:12
This app would destroy the competition if you could actually play jacks or better against the computer, make bets, collect winnings, etc. The "real play" practice mode is awesome but I had hoped to play games, too.
Great poker app with great support
by rebatch on 2012/01/09 23:15
This app has been indispensable for me to learn and memorize the best tactics in Jacks or Better video poker. Nice balance of practical advice, training tools and great to have the 'real play' mode bringing it all together. A great app that is both fun and 'gets the job done'. Highly recommended. Great support from the developer as well.
Great "training" app!!
by Valerie McCarthy on 2012/01/09 19:08
I love this app! The training modes are great, but I really love the "real play" mode, which lets you play and while you are betting it simultaneously tells you whether this is the best move. I have found no glitches and am happy. One suggestion would be to make the real play more fun, add cash so you can see how much you are winning (or losing). Thanks!!!
"Analyze" is the Bomb!
by Schadell Girl on 2011/12/31 00:06
I like this app a lot! The ANALYZE feature is amazing! I also did not know machines were different; now I do. Thanks!
Very cool!
by Zart21 on 2011/12/15 23:37
This app has it all! Very good buy and very easy to use.
HOLY @$%#*! THIS IS AWESOME!
by Poker Man Now Takes Money on 2011/12/15 19:31
Upgrade! Wow. Version #2.0 It was already a great app. I got my first royal flush in Atlantic City using one of the simple strategies of this app. Get it! Version #1 I'm new to Poker and and am now hooked! This app allows me to be compettitive with my friends. They started getting pissed when I began taking their money. My secret. Great app. Thank you!
Update is awesome!!!
by Cjpad86 on 2011/12/13 10:58
Apparently someone read the reviews, because at last this has everything we have been asking for plus more. You can now actually play a real game that tells you the best possible move and the analyzer is great. Can't wait to go back to Vegas to test out my skills. 5 stars just like I promised.
Another great update!
by SeaBoater on 2011/12/13 04:10
Love the new features. Keep up the good work!
Not too shabby
by Wildcat9987 on 2011/11/16 21:02
Good app with lots of helpful information. The strategy guide and practice session are great tools for beginners. With some additions, this app could be one of the best apps available! My suggestions: 1) up to date casinos in Vegas currently offering 9/6 2) deuces/joker wild strategy/practice 3) further detail explaining the math behind the best cards to keep 4) live practice with available statistics on player choices and play Hope to see some of these suggestions on the future. Thanks for app!
Okay - Room for Improvement
by Murph2che on 2011/04/15 03:19
I'd like to see an explanation listed for certain strategic plays. I find myself wondering why the apps choice makes more sense a lot. I'm not arguing it, just want to learn more about why to choose those cards. It'd be nice to actually play Jacks or Better, not just train for playing it. I want to test out the newly learned behaviors. The tactics menu doesn't allow me to see anything beyond the first page. I can't swipe to the other pages. Hoping for a good update. Lots of potential here!
Fun App!
by KellyInCincy on 2011/03/30 02:34
Great thanks! Kept me entertained on my flight from L.A. back to Cincy. Want to put my newfound confidence and knowledge to the test at our new Horseshoe Casino to open soon. Always good to keep my hubby guessing about what he thinks I know and don't know!
Really helped.
by Scott8215 on 2011/03/26 00:20
Excellent. Just back from Atlantic City. Really helped me refresh on strategy. Wasn't even aware to look for specific machines and various payouts. Got my money's worth a hundred times ove
Not the best, limited
by Rocket City Rebel on 2010/12/11 20:41
This app is okay but seems very limited in strategy. Also there is no actual video poker game just the trainer. Limited to a 9/6 machine which are few and far between in the real Vegas.
Bad advice
by Gamester777 on 2010/08/09 03:49
Many higher quality titles available out there. Does not always provide optimal play feedback.
Realistic?
by Volman on 2010/03/20 01:30
I like some of the situations represented but I don't see as many chances for a straight at a video poker machine at a casino as the trainer gives. I do like the tatics page showing what to keep and what to discard, that is worth the buck.
Looks pretty good so far!
by A Gadget on 2010/02/24 05:48
Looking forward to learning from this!
I'm Hooked!!!
by Cleo0243 on 2010/01/19 23:36
I'm a new poker player. I started playing video poker too about 3 mos. Ago. I was very confused about what a straight, flush, high cards, low cards, etc, etc was. Now I'm starting to understand what is really going on while playing. How to win. I'm hooked!!! This app. Is worth every penny.
Great App!
by Everyone gets lucky sometimes on 2010/01/18 17:22
Better graphics and it really helps you learn and understand the game. Highly recommend!
Jacks or better mentor
by Ralphie Reno on 2010/01/18 17:13
Great app. Opened my eyes to how I should have been betting all these years. And I will definitely check to see how "tight" each casino is from now on. Liked the app already, but now it tells you the WHY of certain holds, which is great.
Love it
by Gracie. on 2010/01/15 20:04
Perfect! I'd love to see them do video poker games with the exact same interface.
Five stars!
by Chelsea Style on 2010/01/15 19:55
This app is so fun and very educational. After playing couple of times, I am way more confident in my poker skills. I recomend this app to everyone!
Great Update !
by JMitchell360 on 2010/01/14 05:46
Thought the first version was pretty cool and worth the money. But the update is awesome and much more fun. Can't wait for my next Vegas trip!
great app
by eekman11 on 2010/01/13 01:41
easy,fun, helps win money! what's better? A+++ must get app
Strategy page alone worth the price of the app...
by JBird101 on 2010/01/13 01:08
Liked old version enough, but this new one is slicker, and has 12 more tests. It gets 5 Stars for the STRATEGY page alone, as neither I nor anyone I know was aware what to look for on a machine to check it's payout. Even the same bank of machines can have different payouts! I doubt many people know that - thanks for opening my eyes!
Not worth the $$$
by Gonzonikki on 2009/12/30 15:56
I thought there would be more to this for $1.99. You go through the 30 different hands they show you - some of which are totally obvious - then you're done forever. Nothing new and not even the chance to practice what you' ve learned. Just not worth the money.
Not for serious players
by Kgbted21 on 2009/08/21 19:47
Only deals 10 hands for each of three levels and each level teaches different rules. Poor program

This app would destroy the competition if you could actually play jacks or better against the computer, make bets, collect winnings, etc. The "real play" practice mode is awesome but I had hoped to play games, too.
Fun, informative app
by HeyyyBarKeep on 2012/06/01 13:18
A lot of real thought went into this. It's easy to use. I'll be watching for the creator's name when selecting future training apps, assuming he makes more. Excellent.
Ummm . . . huh???
by Necro1775 on 2012/06/13 11:07
So I got through the training, and was completely stoked about learning a few things that I had really been questioning, so I decided to test it out on the real play option. That was the point when 5 stars dropped to 3. Training: 10c (clubs), Jc, Ac, 7c, 4h (hearts) Suggested hold: 10c, Jc, Ac (for the royal) Real play suggested hold: 10c, Jc, Ac, 7c (for the flush) Well which is it?? 3 to the Royal or 4 to the flush?? I will say this though: This is the first time I've encountered a hypocritical software program. My only other gripe is the fact that there's no way to turn off the sound, and it makes some extremely loud and annoying sounds.
Awesome app!!!
by Evieluv on 2012/05/11 03:53
I really love this app! This app taught me how to play video poker. I have won 4 royal flushes. Recommend this app to people who do not know how to play. They should make other apps to help people like me learn other games.

by Wildcat9987 on 2011/11/16 21:02
Good app with lots of helpful information. The strategy guide and practice session are great tools for beginners. With some additions, this app could be one of the best apps available! My suggestions: 1) up to date casinos in Vegas currently offering 9/6 2) deuces/joker wild strategy/practice 3) further detail explaining the math behind the best cards to keep 4) live practice with available statistics on player choices and play Hope to see some of these suggestions on the future. Thanks for app!
Really Cool, very helpful

There was a lot to learn, always thought "Bet Max" was a scam, and that a line of machines had the same payout for the same game - they don't ! Training mode useful, Analyze function PRICELESS!!

I'd like to see an explanation listed for certain strategic plays. I find myself wondering why the apps choice makes more sense a lot. I'm not arguing it, just want to learn more about why to choose those cards. It'd be nice to actually play Jacks or Better, not just train for playing it. I want to test out the newly learned behaviors. The tactics menu doesn't allow me to see anything beyond the first page. I can't swipe to the other pages. Hoping for a good update. Lots of potential here!
Great app

With this trainer I've learned to play for the best hands. I now play video poker once a week at the casino and have won most of the time
Not worth the $$$
by Gonzonikki on 2009/12/30 15:56
I thought there would be more to this for $1.99. You go through the 30 different hands they show you - some of which are totally obvious - then you're done forever. Nothing new and not even the chance to practice what you' ve learned. Just not worth the money.
Worth a buck!

Description
Part Card Analyzer, Trainer, Simulator, and Strategy Guide, this app is a must for anyone that plays jacks or better Video Poker. The easy to learn tactics and handy hand calculator will turn you into an expert in no time. Great for both beginners and experts. - Easy to memorize tactics - Three levels of training game - Odds shown for any hand - Use Hand Analyzer to see exactly what to hold - Read the Strategy Guide to learn the secrets of the pros - Use Real Play to simulate a real machine What do people say? "I wish I had this in vegas last weekend. All these moves I thought were smart, I've learned otherwise. Very helpful indeed. Love the interface!" "Unlike other poker apps, this actually teaches you how to win! Instead of throwing some random cards at you, it challenges you with specific scenarios. I was surprised to learn that I was picking the wrong cards for years! " This application uses a unique method to teach you how to win at video poker. Each of the three levels of training give you ten different scenarios to choose from. To simulate these edge conditions, we provide over 4000 combinations of hands make it tougher to see the patterns. Your goal is to get all 14 right out of 14. Each time you play, your score will improve! For example, which do you think is better? A Hi Pair or three cards of a Royal Flush? How about four of a flush or a low pair? After you choose which cards to hold, it tells you which cards you should keep and why. Before you know it, you will be an expert at recognizing patterns and instinctively choosing the right cards! Ever get a hand but don't really know what to hold? Use the Card Analyzer to tell you exactly what to do! The analyzer calculates the average payout of all possible hands you could get for each combination of cards you could hold. It does over 1/2 million calculations in less than 1 second and gives you the perfect move!

Great app when you’re sitting at a machine
by scott_jb on 2019/10/26 01:13
I love this app. I use it whenever I’m at the casino. You can put the cards that you have in the analyzer and it will tell you what to do. The latest update crashes after every hand which is a bummer, but I’ll still use the app.

Our go-to App in Reno
by VP Pro on 2019/07/06 18:34
Have use the app at riverboat casinos in Indiana, in Vegas, on cruise ships and annually in Reno. We are pretty good, but the app keeps us sharp in “Training Mode” before we gamble with real money. Then in “Analyze” mode, we can enter the cards on the machine to see our best hold. That feature alone is worth the price of the app.
Nice VP trainer
by bearswalker on 2019/02/28 18:35
I especially like the Real Play feature. I’ve asked for a couple enhancements, but I haven’t noticed any bugs. I like to use a VP trainer in the weeks before a Vegas trip, to knock down the cobwebs. I also like to drink while I’m training for that casino ambiance. :-) This trainer has met my needs.

by Brian the Truth on 2018/05/22 00:23
I’m able to get the rust off before making it to the casino. I’m very pleased by the free play, tests, and references available. Easily one of my favorite apps and by far the best JoB on the App Store.
Great app!
by MGZLV on 2018/04/24 03:25
The perfect app for practicing Jacks or Better—a popular game that is also foundational for learning more complex video poker games. Lots of good features—you can edit the pay tablet to reflect the game you’re playing, you can practice hands and check the odds on your selection, and obviously, just enjoy “playing.” One feature I love is being able to enter a specific hand and analyze the correct move if you get stumped. This is a *must* for anyone who is planning to play for real $ and wants to come out on the winning side over the long term.
Great App easily worth 99¢
by daredman1970 on 2017/09/22 20:14
Really love this app. Been using it for awhile now to help increase my percentage of correct holds in VP. More correct holds equals more money in my pocket. it pays for itself almost immediately.
VP Trainer is a Great App!
by Steve Deas on 2017/06/01 14:14
I have used VP Trainer many years with much success. My wife and I visit casinos quite often and use the trainer when ever in doubt as to which is the better hand to hold working toward the Royal Flush. My routine is listening to soft jazz on iPhone with VP Trainer near-by to second guess a difficult hand.
Fix the math please.

by Kaktus_jak on 2012/04/03 19:45
I live in vegas and their is a video poker game on every corner this app has turned me into a pro. Just like the user below stated, the game tells you to hold tens and to go for a high pair except the name of the game is called jacks or better not 10's or better, except the only time it tells you to hold a ten is when the ten is the same suit of another high card like a jack or king. It tells you to go for the high pair but it really means go for the royal flush. I emailed the dev about this and they explained. if any of you have any idea's on how to make this app better email the dev's they listen and want feedback. This game is not flawed and works great!
Don't buy it!
by PoonLang on 2012/03/24 21:02
Do not buy this app for jacks or better as it states. Its flawed and will teach you wrong. It's almost great, but I think the casinos might be putting this out. 10s aren't as good as face cards. 10s are as good as a 3s. Along with other problems.

Great support from the developer as well.
Great "training" app!!
by Valerie McCarthy on 2012/01/09 19:08
I love this app! The training modes are great, but I really love the "real play" mode, which lets you play and while you are betting it simultaneously tells you whether this is the best move. I have found no glitches and am happy. One suggestion would be to make the real play more fun, add cash so you can see how much you are winning (or losing). Thanks!!!

Not the best, limited
by Rocket City Rebel on 2010/12/11 20:41
This app is okay but seems very limited in strategy. Also there is no actual video poker game just the trainer. Limited to a 9/6 machine which are few and far between in the real Vegas.

Liked old version enough, but this new one is slicker, and has 12 more tests. It gets 5 Stars for the STRATEGY page alone, as neither I nor anyone I know was aware what to look for on a machine to check it's payout. Even the same bank of machines can have different payouts! I doubt many people know that - thanks for opening my eyes!

Lots of good features—you can edit the pay tablet to reflect the game you’re playing, you can practice hands and check the odds on your selection, and obviously, just enjoy “playing.” One feature I love is being able to enter a specific hand and analyze the correct move if you get stumped. This is a *must* for anyone who is planning to play for real $ and wants to come out on the winning side over the long term.
Great app when you’re sitting at a machine

I love this app. I use it whenever I’m at the casino. You can put the cards that you have in the analyzer and it will tell you what to do. The latest update crashes after every hand which is a bummer, but I’ll still use the app.
VP Trainer is a Great App!
by Steve Deas on 2017/06/01 14:14
I have used VP Trainer many years with much success. My wife and I visit casinos quite often and use the trainer when ever in doubt as to which is the better hand to hold working toward the Royal Flush. My routine is listening to soft jazz on iPhone with VP Trainer near-by to second guess a difficult hand.
Our go-to App in Reno
by VP Pro on 2019/07/06 18:34
Have use the app at riverboat casinos in Indiana, in Vegas, on cruise ships and annually in Reno. We are pretty good, but the app keeps us sharp in “Training Mode” before we gamble with real money. Then in “Analyze” mode, we can enter the cards on the machine to see our best hold. That feature alone is worth the price of the app.
Nice VP trainer
by bearswalker on 2019/02/28 18:35
I especially like the Real Play feature. I’ve asked for a couple enhancements, but I haven’t noticed any bugs. I like to use a VP trainer in the weeks before a Vegas trip, to knock down the cobwebs. I also like to drink while I’m training for that casino ambiance. :-) This trainer has met my needs.
Great pregame exercise
by Brian the Truth on 2018/05/22 00:23
I’m able to get the rust off before making it to the casino. I’m very pleased by the free play, tests, and references available. Easily one of my favorite apps and by far the best JoB on the App Store.
Great App easily worth 99¢
by daredman1970 on 2017/09/22 20:14
Really love this app. Been using it for awhile now to help increase my percentage of correct holds in VP. More correct holds equals more money in my pocket. it pays for itself almost immediately.
Excellent App
by Educator M. on 2018/07/05 16:59
This is how I learned to play Video Poker. It was recommended to me from FB - Solo Las Vegas. To make things even better I received a reply when asking a question via Email! Great App.

Good layout and easy to use if Jack’s or better is your only game.
Good trainer
by zBobcat on 2012/08/13 00:26
Wish it had better stats to track your long term performance against optimal play, or the ability to just play without the training feature
Video trainer
by Sheressa on 2019/11/20 19:32
Just bought app and it will not open up completely. Very frustrating
Give us an update!...please!
by TurtleOnACloud on 2019/11/09 21:34
Just when I was starting to get a feel for the game...iOS update... now the App crashes. Please fix!
App is amazing!
by Kaktus_jak on 2012/04/03 19:45
I live in vegas and their is a video poker game on every corner this app has turned me into a pro. Just like the user below stated, the game tells you to hold tens and to go for a high pair except the name of the game is called jacks or better not 10's or better, except the only time it tells you to hold a ten is when the ten is the same suit of another high card like a jack or king. It tells you to go for the high pair but it really means go for the royal flush. I emailed the dev about this and they explained. if any of you have any idea's on how to make this app better email the dev's they listen and want feedback. This game is not flawed and works great!
Analyze function alone worth the buck!
by Jatszer on 2012/01/30 04:29
I'm pretty good already, but being able to enter the cards and find out what to do in tricky situations is priceless!! I practice with the Real Play function before I hit the casino, keeping my thumb over the advice message to see if I did the right thing before I look at it. Nice work! (I have used this at the casino and no one has told me to put it away yet)
Strategy page alone worth the price of the app...
by JBird101 on 2010/01/13 01:08
Liked old version enough, but this new one is slicker, and has 12 more tests. It gets 5 Stars for the STRATEGY page alone, as neither I nor anyone I know was aware what to look for on a machine to check it's payout. Even the same bank of machines can have different payouts! I doubt many people know that - thanks for opening my eyes!
Great "training" app!!
by Valerie McCarthy on 2012/01/09 19:08
I love this app! The training modes are great, but I really love the "real play" mode, which lets you play and while you are betting it simultaneously tells you whether this is the best move. I have found no glitches and am happy. One suggestion would be to make the real play more fun, add cash so you can see how much you are winning (or losing). Thanks!!!
Update is awesome!!!
by Cjpad86 on 2011/12/13 10:58
Apparently someone read the reviews, because at last this has everything we have been asking for plus more. You can now actually play a real game that tells you the best possible move and the analyzer is great. Can't wait to go back to Vegas to test out my skills. 5 stars just like I promised.
You have to have this before playing!
by Oglalajigiugi on 2012/08/09 17:14
I was very impressed with the app; loads of info. Great not only for practicing, but unbelievably, let's you key in your EXACT cards and it tells you what to do. Things I have been doing for years and years were just plain wrong - thank you so much!
Great poker app with great support
by rebatch on 2012/01/09 23:15
This app has been indispensable for me to learn and memorize the best tactics in Jacks or Better video poker. Nice balance of practical advice, training tools and great to have the 'real play' mode bringing it all together. A great app that is both fun and 'gets the job done'. Highly recommended. Great support from the developer as well.
I'm Hooked!!!
by Cleo0243 on 2010/01/19 23:36
I'm a new poker player. I started playing video poker too about 3 mos. Ago. I was very confused about what a straight, flush, high cards, low cards, etc, etc was. Now I'm starting to understand what is really going on while playing. How to win. I'm hooked!!! This app. Is worth every penny.
Jacks or better mentor
by Ralphie Reno on 2010/01/18 17:13
Great app. Opened my eyes to how I should have been betting all these years. And I will definitely check to see how "tight" each casino is from now on. Liked the app already, but now it tells you the WHY of certain holds, which is great.
Good game
by Al_bba on 2012/07/04 22:28
I didn't know how to play poker and within fifteen minutes I was able to grasp the basics. The game has different levels for more skilled players but you can still learn how to play poker using it. It has training levels with feedback coaching you.
Upgrade Request
by Corvus.Corax. on 2012/01/13 03:12
This app would destroy the competition if you could actually play jacks or better against the computer, make bets, collect winnings, etc. The "real play" practice mode is awesome but I had hoped to play games, too.
Fun, informative app
by HeyyyBarKeep on 2012/06/01 13:18
A lot of real thought went into this. It's easy to use. I'll be watching for the creator's name when selecting future training apps, assuming he makes more. Excellent.
Ummm . . . huh???
by Necro1775 on 2012/06/13 11:07
So I got through the training, and was completely stoked about learning a few things that I had really been questioning, so I decided to test it out on the real play option. That was the point when 5 stars dropped to 3. Training: 10c (clubs), Jc, Ac, 7c, 4h (hearts) Suggested hold: 10c, Jc, Ac (for the royal) Real play suggested hold: 10c, Jc, Ac, 7c (for the flush) Well which is it?? 3 to the Royal or 4 to the flush?? I will say this though: This is the first time I've encountered a hypocritical software program. My only other gripe is the fact that there's no way to turn off the sound, and it makes some extremely loud and annoying sounds.
Awesome app!!!
by Evieluv on 2012/05/11 03:53
I really love this app! This app taught me how to play video poker. I have won 4 royal flushes. Recommend this app to people who do not know how to play. They should make other apps to help people like me learn other games.

by QreusJorj on 2009/08/05 21:34
I wish I had this in vegas last weekend. All these moves I thought were smart, I've learned otherwise. Very helpful indeed. Love the interface!
Not too shabby
by Wildcat9987 on 2011/11/16 21:02
Good app with lots of helpful information. The strategy guide and practice session are great tools for beginners. With some additions, this app could be one of the best apps available! My suggestions: 1) up to date casinos in Vegas currently offering 9/6 2) deuces/joker wild strategy/practice 3) further detail explaining the math behind the best cards to keep 4) live practice with available statistics on player choices and play Hope to see some of these suggestions on the future. Thanks for app!
Really Cool, very helpful
by A Bay Jay on 2012/06/25 21:52
There was a lot to learn, always thought "Bet Max" was a scam, and that a line of machines had the same payout for the same game - they don't ! Training mode useful, Analyze function PRICELESS!!
Video Poker Aficionado
by July16JD on 2012/06/29 05:41
Great training vehicle & would have given you 5 Stars except I can't seem to mute the sound. Anybody else have that problem? I'm using an iPod Touch V.4
Okay - Room for Improvement
by Murph2che on 2011/04/15 03:19
I'd like to see an explanation listed for certain strategic plays. I find myself wondering why the apps choice makes more sense a lot. I'm not arguing it, just want to learn more about why to choose those cards. It'd be nice to actually play Jacks or Better, not just train for playing it. I want to test out the newly learned behaviors. The tactics menu doesn't allow me to see anything beyond the first page. I can't swipe to the other pages. Hoping for a good update. Lots of potential here!
Great app
by Firsttimediet on 2012/02/04 18:30
With this trainer I've learned to play for the best hands. I now play video poker once a week at the casino and have won most of the time
Not worth the $$$
by Gonzonikki on 2009/12/30 15:56
I thought there would be more to this for $1.99. You go through the 30 different hands they show you - some of which are totally obvious - then you're done forever. Nothing new and not even the chance to practice what you' ve learned. Just not worth the money.
Worth a buck!
by Firefighter78 on 2013/06/06 18:09
Great detail for only a dollar. Use this at the casino and you will definitely get your dollar back. Thanks for a nice app.
Five stars!
by Chelsea Style on 2010/01/15 19:55
This app is so fun and very educational. After playing couple of times, I am way more confident in my poker skills. I recomend this app to everyone!
Great App!
by Everyone gets lucky sometimes on 2010/01/18 17:22
Better graphics and it really helps you learn and understand the game. Highly recommend!
Great Update !
by JMitchell360 on 2010/01/14 05:46
Thought the first version was pretty cool and worth the money. But the update is awesome and much more fun. Can't wait for my next Vegas trip!
Fix the math please.
by kbCaptain on 2014/10/28 18:28
This has been a good app so far, but I've noticed the pay amount is wrong on many of the options for different pay scales. I am worried the entire app is inaccurate.
BEST EVER!
by bug1993112 on 2012/02/15 03:37
Finally an app that really teaches! This is the best app I have ever used. I wish I could put it on my computer too!
Great
by Junkocrap on 2012/02/12 18:10
Needs to have money in the free play mode so you can track your success
"Analyze" is the Bomb!
by Schadell Girl on 2011/12/31 00:06
I like this app a lot! The ANALYZE feature is amazing! I also did not know machines were different; now I do. Thanks!
Boo boo
by Piggy 100 on 2012/06/18 14:00
Seems in line with other programs used. Wish would show coins spent re to coins earned
A Most Used App
by payntar on 2012/04/17 07:26
Invaluable practice tool, always becomes a most used app before Vegas trips.
Great!
by BruPaul on 2013/07/15 16:08
If you want to win, this app is a great choice for learning to play perfectly!
Love it
by Gracie. on 2010/01/15 20:04
Perfect! I'd love to see them do video poker games with the exact same interface.
Excellent
by Extreme Talent on 2012/09/14 16:32
Highly recommend
Realistic?
by Volman on 2010/03/20 01:30
I like some of the situations represented but I don't see as many chances for a straight at a video poker machine at a casino as the trainer gives. I do like the tatics page showing what to keep and what to discard, that is worth the buck.
Great App
by Njpoker on 2012/07/04 04:05
Well designed with a good flow to have you playing an efficient game!
