So I've been playing this game for five-play quarters recently. The swings have just been insane. I went down $5,000, up $4,600, and then down another $5,000. This was in the space of DAYS. I mean, betting $12.50 a hand, you don't expect that. Does anybody actually play this game long term? It seems like you have to weather a hurricane of variance. Also,, a lot of handpays.

I've hit four handpays: A 3x royal ($3k), 4 aces times 12($2.4k), dealt four deuces with a couple of multipliers and a kicker($1.3k), and dealt four to a royal and drew it on two hands ($2K).

Most addictive game in recent memory. Coming up here for the Jazz Fest? You'll see if you do.

I just wonder how many people are getting destroyed by the machine because they don't know the variance. Of course, you could be like StrictlyAP and just hit jackpots...

Not to mention usually the paytables are horrible, and optimal strategy is difficult.

I have lost $3600 on .10 5 and 10 play in a short period of time. I generally run ban playing UX, it's a wicked game. I seem to always blank out after getting a dealt hand.

I have often said, I can't understand how normal people can afford to play this game.

One casino I go to has it for nickels at one of the bars. That is the only place I can afford to play it.

$12.50/round, playing "slow" at 10 seconds per round is $4500/hr coin-in.
6 seconds per round puts that at $7500/hr coin-in.

So yeah, you expect that kind of swing, or at least you should.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I respectfully disagree. Playing, for example, $0.25 9/6 Jacks 10-play, it is also $12.50 a hand. But you don't see nearly the same swings. The problem with DDB UX is that you get a TON of 0-value hands. And 2-pair only pays one unit too. So often times you are getting a payback of 10 or 15 units out of 50. So you can have enormous drawdowns.

I wish I could get just one days worth of video from MGM here. You all would be flabbergasted by the degenerates on UX there. These people are either loaded or ripping someone off for their play. They don't even take restroom breaks. And if they need money, they have made up signs stating "went for change" or "I'll be right back". They just can't get enough.

yeessh.. what a roller coaster ride.
even tho it's 99.8% for the 5 play, I'm going to stick with plain old 9/6 JoB (99.5%).

I looked up the 10play variant.. 99.9% because all special quads + sf+ royal gives you 4x multiplier instead of 2x.

but you need an even stronger stomach for that roller coaster!
whiffing on 10 x $2.50 = $25 is painful.
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)
