Please try out the Wizard's new Crazy 4 Poker practice game.

If you are able to break it or encounter strange behavior with it, please reply to this thread.

Sorry for the math joke, but I'm afraid nobody noticed the OP.

One day, Jesus said to his disciples: "The Kingdom of Heaven is like 3x squared plus 8x minus 9."
A man who had just joined the disciples looked very confused and asked Peter: "What, on Earth, does he mean by that?"
Peter replied: "Don't worry - it's just another one of his parabolas."

game works fine for me, however i really do not like the actual game crazy 4 poker. i think it's one of the most boring card games ever.



I also played it for a little while and also noticed the boredom. I didn't find an error though. With UTH and Mississippi Stud out there, it's impressive this game is still around. :) It's hard to find in my area though. I think the nearest place that has it is Kansas City ~3 hours away.

I find the game boring too. However, it is probably a good choice if playing for comps. Many casinos over-comp the "novelty games," and with such a simple strategy you won't lose anything to player errors, as you might with Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em.

Boring? Yeah, I thought so too. Maybe we need to get someone who actually plays the casino game to try this simulator.

The only thing I found to be broken was the link on the bottom of the description page, going to ShuffleMaster's page.

I also played yesterday and didn't find any errors to report.

I had never played Crazy 4 Poker before either live or online. Like the other posters, after playing the game, I found it not that compelling and am surprised this game has done so well (teliot's book indicated 100+ installs back in mid 2009 and I am sure it has over 200 now as I see it in a lot of properties in CA/WA).

I think the hook is the ability to raise aggressively with good hands. Roger has indicated in the past that he tends to design "aggressive betting" games to get players adrenaline going, and it seems to be working here.

Design a 5 Card Stud game, drop a card and add the ability to let players press aggressively on good hands......Roger got to where he is by being a clever designer!

And this will not draw a suspension, yet calling someone a nitwit ( followed by a smiley face) does.

Something does not seem fair !

I guess it's the old golden rule, " He who has the gold makes the rules "
Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet

Which rule did I allegedly break? If the rule about no thumbtacking, please see rule 9 in the forum rules, especially the part adding a joke.

If it is the rule about personal insults, I didn't even mean to insult Jesus or Peter, but if you think I did, they are not forum members, so insulting them is allowed.

Let me also making something perfectly clear. I am not above my own rules. If somebody thinks I broke a rule you may take it up with Mission. I'll submit to whatever sentence he thinks is appropriate. In fact, I will self-report this to him now, although I'm not sure what I did.

I play the game here and there in a Casino. It's not the most fun game in the world, but you can win a good amount in a short period of time if you get some cards with the 3x play bet. One thing to consider, most games are not as fun in the online simulation as compared to playing it live. There's just someone about touching the cards, discarding the ones you don't want, placing bets and grabbing winning chips that you can't get playing online just pushing the "deal" button.
