Hey everyone!

We are currently working on another version of our MultiDraw video poker game and wanted to ask the experts some questions on which cards to hold in this new version. In this new version of the game, we are allowing the MD card to appear on the deal of the game, whereas previously in MultiDraw the card could only appear on the draw of the game.

If you would like to test the early build of the game, you can find the game here: http://realizegamingllc.com/dev/MDDelux/
*Please keep in mind it is an early build and we know there will be a number of things that need to be corrected, but we are also very happy to listen to your feedback as we work to get the game into a final version.

The examples shown below are for DDB version of MultiDraw Deluxe.

First Case:

My first guess is to hold the four to a flush.

Second Case:

I'm almost positive players would just hold the three three's even though a kicker is dealt into the hand.

Third Case:

I'm also guessing the best hold is to stay with the straight and not chase the royal flush.

Fourth Case:

Straight draw or straight flush cards only?

Fifth Case:

Straight with a gap in it or straight flush?

Six Case:

Straight possibility?

Feel free to play around with the early build by using the controls at the bottom and please feel free to post any questions you might have.

Thanks,

My answers, could be wrong.

1. 3 to a RF
2. 3OAK, no kicker on DDB. You would on TDB.
3. 3 to a RF.
4. 3 to a SF because the 4th card is terminal. (Only 1 rank will give you a straight.)
5. 3 to the SF. Sa me reason as above.
6. on DDB, I'm pretty sure you hold the unsuited Ace.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Thanks beachbumbabs. I appreciate your thoughts.

I'm sure I will have some more questions this weekend once I get a chance to test the game more.

My calculations agree with bbb in each case. A couple extra comments.

In hand #2, you might want to prevent the ability to have two 3's of diamonds in the same hand.

In hands #4 and #5, the straight draws are not even 2nd best. In each case, the singleton ace has higher EV than the 4 straight. But the ace is still lower than the 3-card SF draws.

Thanks drrock. I'm not sure how I missed that three of diamonds appearing twice in the hand. That is definitely not possible in the game so we will fix that right away.

Great win!

I see you didn't even use the pre-select controls to get that win.

Thanks for sharing!

I have to give credit to the programmer for the pre-select controls. He does an amazing job programming all my games. Anyway, we use the controls to test as many different hands as possible and to make sure the game is holding the correct combinations of cards prior to running the billion simulations of the game.

I would definitely feel good about your win, but don't hesitate to play around with the contols….especially #22 since it is always nice to see four aces with chances for the kicker.

I think you should JUSTIFY your hold reason, as in in logic, you are most likely comparing at least 2 hands, if not 3. And that work is being wasted if you arent also sharing that information with your users. The users know this is happening in the background, but say you only have 2 hands you are comparing, as if the only 2 possible BEST hands at the top of your lists are a high card , and a pair of cards, my suggestion is to display that comparison.

so you would put "we picked this hand to hold instead of the other hand because potential value of hand 1 (n) is greater than hand 2 (n+1)"

or to shorten

Hold reaon: "POTENTIAL Flush is greater than 2 pair"
