As we continue to work on the math for our original 5x3 Trade N' Place Poker game, we have started discussing a 3x3 option. We have a number of questions or things to think about with this game and we always welcome the communities feedback. Give the "very rough" demo a play and let me know what you think about the following items. If you have additional questions or concerns, please let us know those, too.

Demo

1. Do you like using 6 total paylines? Would you like it more if we just used the 3 horizontal lines and eliminate the vertical hands? Part of me thinks the label at the end of the hand makes the game seem crowded, so maybe we need to find a different way to show the winning hands or offset them next to the hands and use an arrow to point the direction of the outcome for the player.

2. To keep in line with video poker games, I'm thinking the wager will be 5 credits per hand. With this in mind, the wager for our current build will be ($5 x 6 hands = 30). We may have to change this based on the fact that it is not typical three card poker since the player is not stuck with their dealt hands.

3. My original thinking is that the player will get one trade or one place only. It just feels like anything more than that may be too much and it starts interfering with the hands you have already build.

4. This is a very early build, so let us know what other things you have in mind.

Do you realize there is no way to lose with the high card payout.

Yes. We will be removing the high card and adjusting the pay table.

Uhhhh.... yeah! I think as devised it has a player advantage of around 100%.

I was slightly confused to get back a card I had thrown away - easy to spot there were three Aces on a diagonal and I threw two away and got two back! Had some luck getting two SFs but seemed to have a winning run.

Did you consider 8 pay lines for the 3x3? With the two diagonals counting also?
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Definitely early beta testing for the criss-cross format. Offhand I'm thinking the number of trade/place cards should be reduced from 3 to 2.

Edit: Hmm... I had a hand where the forced placement actually reduced my payout. That's something to think about.

This 3-card version will be an interesting nut for you to crack.

The update is only one $5 unit in, so you're getting six paylines for the price of one.

We have that ability in the patent, but using the diagonals really gets confusing. Plus when you add the trading and placing feature it really slows the game down.
