Optimal Poker Analyzer uses advanced analytics from Foundation and evaluates every decision made in video poker to allow casinos to optimize marketing and operations.
This enables casinos to develop a strategy of optimization of marketing and operations through the analysis of decisions made in video poker.
Review specific Hand Data including cards that were dealt, held and the final cards in the hand. “Correct Cards Held” represents the optimal decision.
Quantify the value of each player error. With card-in, the sum of all error values are tracked over time.
Video poker is a staple in the casino industry, specifically in the high-frequency local markets like Nevada. Due to the skill factor involved, highly skilled players – known as advantage players – are able to achieve a positive expected return that causes casinos to lose money. These losses are increased when factoring marketing offers such as free play or other rewards that are designed to incentivize play. Many casinos have responded by adapting their video poker strategy by reducing the number of games and incentives offered.
Approved for use in Nevada and other major jurisdictions, Optimal Poker Analyzer works on any game with Foundation installed and across all variants of video poker. Foundation does not require a floor-wide install.
Accessing the actual card values as they’re dealt, Optimal Poker Analyzer instantly recognizes the optimal play strategy of each hand and grades the player’s actual in-hand decision as a deviation from the expected return of the optimal strategy.
