So ALL of the other cards that aren't spades are worthless?



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

With an autoshuffler (pai gow poker esque) you could get in as many hands as blackjack.



I missed this comment before.... There is absolutely no chance this even comes close to the speed of BJ.

3 community cards get dealt. Then a player decision. Then six cards get dealt to players who get to squeeze/look at them. Then the dealer has to resolve a number of wagers. This will not come close to the speed of blackjack. I see this more of the speed of UTH, miss stud or many other multi decision games.

Also, an edit for the rules page Mike.

Rule 8 reads:

"8. If the sum of the footballs between the nine cards is six or more and the player did not already win per Rule 3, then the First Down bet, plus any double, shall pay 1 to 1. Otherwise, if the sum is five or less, then they shall lose."

I believe it is supposed to read :

"8. If the sum of the footballs between the nine cards is six or more and the player did not already win per Rule 5, then the First Down bet, plus any double, shall pay 1 to 1. Otherwise, if the sum is five or less, then they shall lose."

Thanks, you're right.

Last little thing...

Maybe for rule #6, state that the player may also stand and let their initial 1st down wager ride...

It's a little ambiguous as is. I assume that they may double their bet or fold. Maybe clarify that there is no folding, and no need to buy the additional six cards to complete the hand.

Just a thought....

Oh the last six cards are personal/unique? I skimmed it too fast then.

I believe the steps are:

-Place a first down and other desired side bets
-three community cards come (6+ footballs wins 3/2)
-if less than six footballs either let your 1st down bet ride or double it.
-get/review your own additional six cards and hope to win.

I'll let mike confirm if that is correct... I could be wrong.

No, you are right, at least in the way it was written. Seems like a ton of time could have been saved by keeping everything community.

That is correct. I'm open to suggestions if my wording is unclear.

The question for the poll is would you play Turbo Football?



Wiz,

Could be fun. Best case, bet $1 (as a simple example) on the First Down bet and each of the four bonus bets, and the player could win a maximum of $522 for a total combined bet of $5 (if I understand the rules correctly).

But, the thing that strikes me is this: If I win $522 because I'm hogging all the good football spades, that limits the opportunity for other players to win, right? So, the casino knows someone might win, but it would be hard for all players at the table to win any given hand. That limits the overall exposure of the casino.

So, my question to all the math wizzes is this: Assuming a $1 bet is the minimum base bet, what is the MAXIMUM loss the casino can suffer in any given hand, and under what conditions does it occur? I dunno how many folks can sit at the table, but there are sufficient cards for as many as 7 players.
