Of All the Silliest Things....

....you won't believe what i did....lol....

here i was playing video poker - triple bonus poker - at a land-based casino...not really winning and not really losing either...when suddenly my eyes lit up from an a half asleep state...."Oh! What is this?...." I was dealt a straight flush...for some reason my excitement rushed through me a lot more than normal....i went to call on my friend who was playing on a video poker machine right behind mine...so that he could witness what I had won...when i returned with my friend and sat back down...i hit the draw button to close the hand and collect.....but!!!!!...BUT!!!!!!.....soon after i realized in agonizing pain that i didn't hold the cards...and so a drew 5 new cards..that didnt even give me a pair! LOL - when will my blunders stop!?!? Oh well...at least that was the worst and most memorable moment i had this weekend in which I lost.....this time....next time....it's gonna be WIN WIN WIN!

That sucks ... the machine should be auto-holding anything better than a pair.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.

online video poker games do...but so far all the land-based video poker games i've played do not have the auto-hold. i just need to make sure to pay more attention next time.
