videopoker.com says you need to be gold to play UX wheel poker.

You can play the contest for free. I like the game, will have to try it when I see it in Vegas at some point.

What does it cost per game?



As an example the current contest is 5 play. For full coin and features you pay:

5 coins per hand for the basic game
5 coins per hand for the UX feature
1 coin per hand for the wheel feature
So a total of 55 coins for 5 play.

As mentioned, you can't play it unless you are gold on the regular games, but because it is the weekly contest you CAN play it on the contest page, (provided you are a member of course, and basic membership is free). That option will end at 11.59 PM on 7/15/18.

It's an OK game. I've never head much luck with UX anyway so it isn't something I'm likely to play for real. Getting good multipliers happens frequently, but I find that trying to get a high winning hand with them is slim to none.

my local used to have a wheel game. I cant remember the particulars but it was something like if you got a dealt 3oak or maybe a 4oak then you got a wheel spin that would give you different things like 12 games with a dealt 3oak or 20 games with a dealt pair. I used to love the game but they got rid of it. I would love a game like that with ux. I am going to check out the contest.

so i went and played it and I do not like the game at all and would not play it. I like the other wheel game like I mentioned above. The one thing that I do not like about this game is I got a full house on my second hand. I did the spin and won 250 credits. However I did not get the 12x on the next hand. I guess the wheel cancels out your next multiplier. That doesnt seem right since you are paying the extra credit for the wheel.

Sounds like Wheel Poker Deluxe

There are some in downtown Vegas. As I recall there are 2 at the 4 Queens and I think they have them at Fremont or perhaps Binions as well.

That sounds more like a bug to me. You're paying full value for the UX. Then more to pay for the wheel. Spinning the wheel should not have canceled your next hand multiplier.

Gonna go look at it.

Edit:



Guess that was correct, not a bug. Pretty pricey on 5 play to lose those multipliers to a single wheel spon.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

From my play on videopoker.com, the credit values are very very rare. You are more likely to get a multiplier. But remember, a 20x multiplier against a losing hand is still 0.
