Video poker is played throughout West Virginia. Machines are available in establishments like bars and clubs. These games are part of the West Virginia video lottery. The pay tables on these games are similar on Game King and Pick N Play machines.
The best pay table that I have found on any of these is 6/5 Bonus Poker. This pays 96.87% when betting 10 coins and using perfect strategy.
The best video poker is at West Virginia casinos. However, two that we visited earlier in 2021 only offer video lottery versions of it. That is the case at Mardi Gras Casino and Mountaineer Casino. Denominations go up to $1. These casinos do not offer any video poker variants.
Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races has the largest West Virginia video poker selection, ties for best games
We found two West Virginia casinos that offer pay tables that are better than the ones at the video lottery establishments. These games may be found at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races and Wheeling Island.
Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races offers the largest selection of video poker in West Virginia. The best value is at the $1 denomination. This requires players to bet $5 per hand. The highest return with perfect play and five coins wagered is 7/5 Bonus Poker (98.01%). It pays back 98%. Other games available on the $1 denomination at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races include 9/5 Double Double Bonus Poker and 9/6/5 Double Bonus Poker. These games return just under 98%.
The quarter and half-dollar pay tables available at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races are a step lower. Examples include 6/5 Bonus Poker, 8/5 Double Double Bonus Poker and 9/6/4 Double Bonus Poker, which are like the video lottery versions.
Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races is home to the largest selection of video poker variants in West Virginia. Options include multi hand Super Times Pay, Hot Roll and Ultimate X. The denominations for these games are nickel, dime and quarter.
Wheeling Island is the other good West Virginia video poker option
Wheeling Island Casino offers mostly video lottery video poker. That is all that I found on the casino floor. The bar has quarter and half-dollar machines with the same three decent games found at Hollywood Casino. Those are 7/5 Bonus Poker, 9/6/5 Double Bonus Poker and 9/5 Double Double Bonus Poker. I found Wheeling Island to be one of the friendliest casinos I have ever visited. If you are in the area, it is worth a stop.
Greenbrier video poker pay table information is not available
We have been unable to visit The Greenbrier Casino due to its restricted access. There is no information on the internet about its video poker quality. If you have any information about the video poker at Greenbrier or know of any games that we missed at other West Virginia casinos, please contact us so we can update this page.
