I just wrote a new page on Lucky 8's Wheel Poker. This analysis and write-up was rather time consuming, so I hope you'll have a look. As always, I welcome all comments.

The question for the poll is would you play Lucky 8's Wheel Poker?

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I think there is an error in that the summaries all say the same thing.

You're right, thanks. I just fixed it (hopefully correctly). Please have another look.

Rule #6: Wouldn't that make four 8s? Or is it different with wild cards?

I'm not sure how much appeal wheels have with VP players who are usually looking to get some control over the randomness of slots. The low level bonus paylines, however, are interesting. A clever designer could bring a whole new dimension to the game with that idea.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

This refers to the poll choice of how is a hand like 288QQ scored, when deuces are wild. Three eights pay more than three queens. I specifically asked the math guy at VideoPoker.com and he said the hand is scored in the way that pays the player the most.

Rule #6 shows 2288A. Quads.

Wiz,

I noticed two typos near the end of your article: you unfortunately wrote "Unfortunatley", and you gave the title of the Return Summary table as "9-6 Triple Double Bonus Summary (Liberal Version)".

Also, near the beginning Rule 9 says "Based on my analysis, I believe the average bonus round win in 3-play is approximately 464 and in 5-play is 775." However, you never seemed to use this 775 figure for the 5-play versions.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, DH, for those corrections. Good catches. I just fixed them.
