I was at the casino last week and there were two guys at a bank of 3 Ultimate X machines guarding them and playing as a team. Every time someone walked close to them the two guys looked at the person as a threat. It made me feel bad to call myself a VP player.

I honestly can't see how this is even legal. Min bet should be 75 cents for triple play nickels, not $1.00.



So you're paying 5 credits for the multipliers but only 2 credits for the base wins? So hitting a three of a kind without a multiplier pays 6 instead of 15? If that's the case, it's likely illegal because the game would never return any state's minimum I would think.

That would not be allowed in Nevada. Every bet increase must have an equal or greater EV than the last.

If they don't let anyone play, how would they get multipliers?



LOL. Maybe the dumbest team ever.

perhaps something more was goimg on then you realize? Or you're not describing the situation detailed enough.

Greetings, first time poster. Lots of great info on the site.

Why is it that sometimes when checking Ultimate X screens the card backs are displayed instead of the last hand? Is there some type of timeout where the previous hand (and leftover multipliers) are lost and the screen switches to card backs? Thanks in advance!

I'm confused how when you switch denominations, the last hand showing is the same. I know I'm doing something wrong but can't figure it out. The machine shows the denomination I selected, but the last hand hand is identical to the hand played on nickels. A guy got on after me and he found some.

The last hand played for that game type is always shown for every denomination of that game. In some cases, people go broke or are looking to play for cheap and do not play every hand for the last hand of the session, but you have to play for 1 credit each to do this. You can also vulture for 1 credit doing this too.

Since it's shown for every denomination afterward of that game type, seeing it is not a guarantee there will not be multipliers on that game (onenickelmiracle's question).
