I'm anticipating my next video poker game to receive a United States Patent later this year, so I thought I'd share it with everyone. This is the base game, but there are a number of variations that I will share later.

Trade N Place Poker
Trade N Place Poker is a poker game with three horizontal poker hands that are played within a 5 x 3 matrix. The game uses a normal deck of cards with the addition of a trade card. The trade cards allows the player to trade the card positions of any two cards on the matrix when it is dealt into the opening deal of the hand.

The game begins by dealing out 15 cards into the matrix. If the trade card is dealt into the hand, it is removed and a replacement card is dealt into that card position. The player is now granted the opportunity to trade the card positions of any two cards within the matrix to build their hand or to improve upon the current value of the hand. Once the trade is complete, one additional card is shown to the player and they will place that card in any position on the matrix. Placing the card on the matrix "covers up" or replaces the existing card in the matrix. Once the card is placed, the player is dealt another card which the player places on the matrix. After all cards are placed onto the matrix, the ending horizontal hands are calculated according to a pay scale.

Quick Rules:
If the trade card is dealt into the hand, the player gets one trade and two place cards.

If the trade card is not dealt into the hand, the player gets three place cards.

I will be getting the math completed on this game later this year and I should have a working demo to go with it. Questions, comments, and any feedback is welcomed.

So basically:

You're dealt three hands, off a single deck.
Randomly, you can swap two cards. If given this option, you then draw two more cards, one at a time, that you can use to replace existing cards.
If not given the option to swap, three more cards are drawn that may be used to replace existing cards.
Payouts are rendered.

Correct. That is exactly how it works for this version of the game.

This seems like a neat idea. I imagine coming up with a proper strategy / determining the HE, will be quite a challenge.

I agree. Hopefully I can get a demo together soon to get a better feel for it.

I certainly give you points for originality. However, I fear that it will take players too long to think through a hand. Most players don't want to think too hard. Sorry to be negative, but anyone can tell you that I'm very tough to please when it comes to new game ideas, as I know that about 99% fail.

My compliments to whoever is doing the math on this. I'd be interested to know the name.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

So the max cards you get on a re deal is 3 to spread throughout 3 hands?

If that is the case then I don't like it at all. You basically are playing to get PAT hands or 4 to a something which don't happen often enough to keep me interested.
