No, SP is not AP play. I do "gamble" once in a while :-) And I don't count hands.


Counting hands is easy, but a questionable habit.
Most people have two....

I keep trying.



I also had a draw yesterday in Toledo on single line 8/5 BP that missed too.


so it's about 1 in 2800 to get 4 to a Royal.
it took me about 8hrs to play 5000 hands (for Diamond in a Day).

How many hands do you play a day?
and how is it AP to play -EV games like Spin Poker?



Spin Poker is the same (EV wise) as any other standard (non-variant) VP game. All that really changes is the volatility.

It should be mentioned that on many Spin Poker machines, a player can bet less than five per line and still get the full 800-FOR-1 payout on a Royal.

Assuming you're playing the quarters ones. HL has $1's and $5's now, I believe.

Also, I play around on nickels, but you can bet more than one per line, but only if you're playing all nine lines.

You're right. There is the regular 45 credit max bet in high limit.

so if only 1 coin-in per line to get the 800-1 for the Royal, then spin poker is better than the regular version of the game?

I suppose the answer is yes if both games have the same paytable otherwise and both are negative expectation games. The Spin Poker would have a lower Expected Loss per hour assuming the denom is the same.

If it is a positive expectation game, then they are equal, percentage wise, just need to bet the Max.

Many??? Disagree. I've only found one like this in my life of dozens of units checked (M Resort Las Vegas - 32 degree bar). I've found more units that require more than 5 credits for the 800 for 1 pay (Blue Chip and Horseshoe Hammond in Indiana).

I've also never seen a Spin Poker game that made you bet all the lines to max bet.
