My local casino has a Video Poker game called Triple Chance.

For 15 coins, you get to play one hand, and then there are two additional stud hands that the player has no control over.

Every other round or so, any or all of the three hands can get a multiplier between 2x and 5x.

I've never seen this anywhere else. Does anyone know the numbers on what this does to your odds? I was playing it for quarters on a 9/6/ JoB game.

1. What happens with the two additional 5-card stud hands? Are they simply dealt with no draw to them? Or does the game draw to them?

2. Are all three hands paid off against a wager of 15 coins, or are they paid off at 5 coins per hand?

3. Are the three dealt hands independent of each other, i.e., can the same card be dealt in in or 3 hands?

Never heard of it. Without knowing how the multipliers are distributed, I wouldn't be able to calculate the odds.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I have never heard of that video poker game. Is it at an Indian casino? I wonder if it is Class II? Next time there take a picture and post it.

It's class II, my g/f played it at Four Winds in South Bend, which does not have a Class III compact.

1. The other two hands are simply dealt with no draw. It's the first five cards off the top of the deck.

2. Each hand is paid off at 5 coins per hand.

3. The three dealt hands seem to be completely independent of each other.

Was there an element of skill to the bottom hand? If so, how did it work in a class 2 game?

Without having seen the game, I would assume no skill is involved at all since the award comes from the bingo card. I assume you play the bottom hand like normal video poker and if you don't hold the desired result the stud hands are dealt to compensate for the award. That is how I would have designed it.
