I cannot think of a more addicting game than Ultimate X! It just kills me how fast the credits come and go. Gets the old heart beating faster than if I were running a 100 yard dash with cops and mean dogs chasing me.

Try Good Times Pay video poker if you haven't yet. I think that one is even more addicting because you have multipliers almost every hand and there are no strategy adjustments required.

I have the worst of luck on UX.

I really like that winning streak.

I think DW dream poker is fun.

There is a single line Ult X at The Palace Casino in Biloxi. It possesses most of my gambling thoughts - most of which I repress.

I'll need to share some pics soon - maybe tomorrow - where I got a quad which paid 10X. Wish it had been $1 and not quarters - but the variance is tough to manage with $1.

It is truly feast or famine with that specific game.

$100 cash in.

5+5 credits per hand. 25 cent denomination.

It will give me a full house or flush followed by a 12x pair of 2-10s routinely. It will do this until 200 credits are left. Then it will start to give me pairs followed by pairs - which is nothing more than break even, and soon, when I'm down to about 140 credits, I'll get a full house, and then trips. And then a pair, and then a quad, followed by 20 hands of garbage. A truly lovely game.

But then, you knew that already.

I think Multi-Strike is suppose to have such an appeal as well by the way it's designed, but I think it just doesn't progress often enough (for my attention span) anyway.

Which goes to prove, producing games with similar gimmicks isn't the only ingredient to success.

unfortunately the strategy may be complicated you can ussuly come close and figure it out using some logic but it wont be perfet so you give up some EV even if you do find a good pay table. I have only played it like 2 times because of this. My GF and I did well but Dj didn't do so well. I don't think he liked it much.

I'm not a big fan of MS or WS because it requires such a huge investment up front. The probability of getting to the highest hand is pretty low, whereas on UX you can realize the multiplier on the next hand, and on DC you are almost 50/50 in getting the best possible EV hand on the last card.

Finally hit a decent multiplier. Not much money at all but not bad for $1.25 investment.

I've determined that my location is mostly a waste of time looking for these things, so I've scaled back how often I check for them. I now only do it on breaks from poker to refresh, or if I spot something specifically while walking around. I will say that there are times when there seems to be a good amount of multipliers to be found, but this also coincides with when I like playing poker so poker wins. Punching through 10 machines in a row to find nothing or one 2x on a .05 cent 10-play was getting really annoying anyway...
