Here is the fourth and final installment of August field trial games in Vegas -- 9 Card Fortune Flush. It is on field trial at Ballys, where I played it on Friday.

The game is evidently another attempt to ride the popularity of flush-based games. This is the first one where you don't need to beat a dealer but win or lose entirely on your own cards. Rather than explain everything twice, please click the link above for all the rules and my analysis. I welcome the amateur gaming mathematicians on the board to confirm or deny my numbers.

It is interesting to note that three of the four August field trial games are based on suits or colors.

So, please let me know what you think of the page. As always, I welcome all questions, comments, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is would you play 9 Card Fortune Flush?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Oh boy! Hopefully not another flush/color game.

Whether I personally would play it or not is moot (I wouldn't, because I like money), but I think the game would fail for two reasons:

1. There is very little strategy involved: only one decision, which is obvious to even a novice.
2. You'll make the decision to Play the majority of the time, meaning the only element of suspense is whether you'll get three cards of the wrong color as your initial hand.

I would expect this game to hold players' interest for a while, especially if they hit one of the 9-card Bonus payouts, but on the other hand, they could go a long time without hitting one of those bonuses and bleed out as a result. I rate it as "meh."

If dealer's upcard is 2-6, they reveal entire hand before players make a decision - while playing against Push 22.
If dealer's upcard is 7-A, it is normal BJ - No Push 22.

If Dealer has BJ, they'll throw it out one time and start with a new bottom card. If it is BJ again, then it stays and player's lose.

This is a Push-22 Game, belong to our friend, Switch (Geoff Hall). He can tell you more.

I also have a Similar Game, Open 21® (not a Push-22 Game), We both come up with a Similar Game at the same time (without knowing each other's game).

P.S. We were both surprised, when we find out, we have a Similar Blackjack Game.

So, if the up card is a six, for example, do they reveal the hole card only, or play out the whole dealer hand before the player acts?
