I've seen quite a few casinos offer "Super Shockwave" on newer game kings, including a lot of CET properties..



I have yet to see it. Will keep an eye out.

Agreed. The just finding the game is rare enough.

Then to actually connect. What a long cycle of hours. You could go a lifetime without ever hitting one while searching.


After the game first came out I believe they had a 99.5 version (don't quote me on that it's been years) Playing it was fun but with difficultly strategy, from what I remember. After you put in any time playing it. From then on you(I) always notice on other games when you hit what would've been a successful SW bonus. I though some versions gave you 14 hands?

No, only on the denomination that hit the 4oak.

In all my years of playing Shockwave (probably my favorite VP), I have never seen a bonus round left open.


I've never played it until I stumbled upon the shockwave mode earlier.

I first played it back in 2000 and I've never seen 14 hands.. it's always been 10. On Super Shockwave you get to choose how many hands of a bonus round you want (the more hands, the less the payout, obvously). That might have a 14 hand option.

I've seen it at

Main Street Station (although the $1 version pays super sucky). ($1, $0.25, $0.10, $0.05).
California ($5, $2, $1, $0.50, $0.25)
Harrahs New Orleans (don't recall denom, but nothing below $0.25)
Gold Strike, Tunica ($0.25) - upstairs

Tables are typically 500 for straight flush, 50 for FH and 40 for straight. (although MSS $1 pays 35 for straight - I've asked them to change it and they ignore me)

Have a friend who found a quarter machine left in Shockwave and hit the 4000 coin quad. He has since hit a few quarter and dollar Shockwave quads while also getting a few royals on these machines. So, of course, he LOVES Shockwave!! I've never hit a Shockwave quad and HATE the game. Funny how that works!

I played it once and had a close call. Got a quad and two hands later was dealt two pair. Held the wrong pair. The other pair would have been quads.

Allen the other pair would not necessarily made quads- why do you think that ?
