Thank You. Unfortunately I made a serious error, The Wild Royal is 20 not 25 on the game I saw yesterday. I suspect all six machines in this bank are that. I will probably check all six machines the next time I am there.

My calculations reflect the 20-for-1 Wild Royal.

Sorry I did not notice that you already corrected it! Great! Sadly this game is not good enough to be included in the vpfree2 database.

Out of intellectual curiosity, comparing our two probability tables, I see we only differ significantly in our results on "Four 3s,4s w/A,2,3,4" and "Four 3s,4s". I get very close to your results when I change the "Four 3s,4s w/A,2,3,4" to just the w/2,3,4 kickers instead of w/A,2,3,4. I am probably missing something, and neither result will make a difference for pyiddy, but I thought I should pursue this for my sanity.

Ah, you just reminded me of something that I thought of as I was writing the hand-scoring code, but neglected to implement it when I got the part where it was needed: the special case of an Ace kicker with four 3s or 4s (since I treat Aces as high in my code).

Fixing that, my results agree with yours. I'll remove my table since it's now redundant.

What were the paytables for Fast Fours?

I played the unit in question back in May. I want to say that Bonus was 6/5 and DDB was 8/5, with the rest of the paytable the same as the WOO page. This would lead Bonus to be about 98.7% and DDB about 98.5%.

The best game I saw on there was 9/6 Triple Triple Bonus (99.75%). The game ate me alive in all the variants I tried though. Lol

Thanks JB and Gary for looking at this previously unanalyzed game!

Slightly off topic.

Tringlomane: You are absolutely right in that 9-6 TTB is the highest EV game on those six machines (With huge variance!)
Note: Other units on both the Majestic Star (6 machines) and the Majestic Star 2 (8 machines) have 9-5 Triple Bonus Plus (99.80%).
Those 14 machines are also 25c/50c/\$1. Six of those units are the ones closer to the bar next to the unit(s) you played.
My mom and I played the two units in non-smoking last Friday. (I was lucky enough to catch quad aces for a win and my mom had a small win too.
We lost a small amount on the machines we are talking about in this thread.)
Sadly, comps are based on theo and those machines are basically rated as zero so still below 100% EV.

Sorry to be late to the party. Last week I paid a quick visit to the Oneida casino in Green Bay, WI. They had this video poker game there. Here is a picture of the pay table.

Click on image for a larger version.

Note how a three of a kind pays 6 in the far right column. The right column shows the win for six coins bet.

Here is my return table for the pay table above:

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
