If other Video Poker players are anything like me, this ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH!

What we want to see is Super Spin Dream Card Bonus Streak Build a Wheel Quick Quads Deal Draw Hot Ultimate X Barnyard Roll with Double Super Times Pay feature.

It only costs 80 credits per hand to play the features, unfortunately, it can only be played ten-handed.

With optimal strategy, the return of the best game, Triple Double Bonus with A-C-E-$ as well as Sequential and Reverse Sequential Royal pays 97.12%.

Fortunately for the casinos, simulations of average video poker players put the hold at something more like 48%.

Actually, something more automatic would be better. Like, if you just hit the button and the game just tells you if you win or lose. What would you call a machine like that?

I think I asked a Star Trek question only once. To appease the younger members, I've asked about the Tellitubies and the Wiggles, I believe. For the older members, I asked about the "Party of the Century." Why didn't you get that one, Doc?

If anyone else ever wants to do the trivia challenge -- have at it. I'll even supply the prizes.



I would have crushed a wiggles question

Thanks for writing this up Wiz. Someone asked about this on another forum I post at. I couldn't give them an exact answer because you hadn't looked at the game yet. Haha. I just told them the optimal return was probably the 5 coin paytable plus about 0.5% or so. In their particular example I was a bit off. They had seen the 98.39% Dueces paytable with the Super Dream Card Feature, which is 0.81% higher than 97.58% Deuces Wild.

It annoys me that this game is another title where IGT just assumes a casino doesn't want to offer a 99%+ version.

I still say Triple Super Times Pay would be awesome, where you have a third chance of a multiplier after the draw.

John was the only male?



Ding ding ding! I owe you a beer.



1) Making it about gender feels very 1970s. For our current times it should be about race.

2) Does racial bias in police work feel like it's going to the wrong place? It fits in exactly with the gender bias and the horrible police work of this answer. Screaming "John don't do it" could mean they're asking him not to squeeze the trigger. Or it could mean they're asking him not to be a hero by stepping in between the shooter and themself. To automatically target the male as the criminal with that level of evidence and no further investigation feels very close to some news stories we hear if we just replace gender with skin color.

I respectfully disagree.

Instead of being thoroughly irritated about whiffing a hand, or as many as ten, after the deal and before the draw, it sounds like Id get the opportunity to also be furious about hitting a multiplier after Ive definitely lost the hand.

A police officer is walking past a home. He hears somebody scream, "John, don't do it!" Then he hears a gunshot. He walks in and sees a doctor, lawyer, a butcher, and a body in a pool of blood. He immediately arrests John for murder. How did he know which was one John?



I know now that this is not the answer you were looking for, but it was the first one that came to me:

The doctor, lawyer, and butcher were all in their work uniforms. Otherwise how would the cop know what their professions were? The doctor and butcher had on name tags, so either one of them said "John," and if they didn't, then the lawyer (or one without a name tag) was obviously named John.

She lost out to the poll option for Angie Verona.

Getting back on topic, I should point out that I was told I had the name of the name wrong. It is Dream Card Poker. It should not be confused with the traditional Draw Poker with Dream Card.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
