Paperback: 150 pages

Price on$12.21

Former math teacher Boyd's guide to winning bucketfuls of change is not for the casual casino-goer: readers will come across sentences like "the mathematically correct way to play any dealt hand is based on the stated payout table in conjunction with statistical probabilities"; be required to keep straight variances, expected returns and expected values (some are percentages; some are currency equivalents); and learn how to read seemingly cryptic charts before sinking their teeth into the meat of Boyd's strategies. But, for the left-brained set, Boyd's book is a boon: she excels in breaking down which hands to play, which types of video poker games offer better chances of payouts for large and small bankrolls, betting strategies and the different types of casinos and games readers can expect to find across the country. Readers who already know their way around a Harrah's will want to skip the sections dealing with gambling addiction, budgets and casino etiquette and cut to the discreetly pocketable payout charts and the approximately 40 pages Boyd dedicates to strategy. Savvy video poker players could win back the cover price in a night.
