I ask because I've been playing the Multi-Strike demo games on the LED website and I seem to be winning a lot on every game. I haven't kept track enough to know for sure, but it seems fishy to me.
That's why it would appear that these are such great games.
On the real machines I've seen (a few years ago at Planet Hollywood and again at Majestic in Gary, IN), it never has a payout that good.
This is a good opportunity to remind, (or inform, for those that do not know), that checking the full pay table on Multistrike is a good idea before playing. It has been a few years since I've done any widespread checks but in the past I've often found games where the royal was shorted on some games.
It usually isn't consistent, in that one game such as JOB will have the usual 4000 for a royal while another such as DDB will have 1250. I've even seen side by side games, (at the Plaza about 4 years ago), where one will have the full rf pay and on the same game in the machine next to it the pay will be 1250.
I can imagine few things that would be more frustrating than to hit a rf at the top level and receive $2,500 instead of $8000.
Rigged? Probably not.Quote: barracuda
Do free online gambling demos of games such as video poker, whether on a pay site or a gaming company site, have the same odds as the actual games, or are they rigged to pay more favorably to try to attract players?
However, they may be using a very favorable pay table. After all, if it's play money, why use a stingy pay table? THAT may be why you're winning more than you do when playing for cash.
