We are currently working on our next video poker game called Bonus Discard Poker and we wanted to post an early build to get some feedback on it.

The game is played by choosing the cards you want to hold to the primary hand and the remaining cards stay in the secondary hand. On the draw, the remaining cards from the deck are dealt into the open spaces in the primary and secondary hands. Winning hands in the primary hand are multiplied by wins in the secondary hand. The secondary hand acts as a multiplier for the game by creating the best 3 card out of 5 card hand.



Please give it a try and let me know what you think.

A few notes:
-The game build is Jacks or Better and the original math was completed by CrystalMath. The game comes with 3 different discard bonus multiplier pay scales.
-The wager will actually require a 5 coin base bet and an additional 5 coin bonus bet. The current games shows 5 + 10.

Why the title is DDB?

I like the game
Fun and innovation!
Great mind!
Id rather have to be a lucky player than good one.

So I'm not primarily a VP player, so take my opinion with that in mind--

I found it tremendously dreary. I did manage to play down the entire 1000, but around 400, I found myself thinking that it'd be easier if I could just lose faster and post my opinion instead of suffering through this longer. My burn rate, playing strategy similar to JoB, was unpleasantly high, and I was receiving quite a few SFs on the multiplier, backed up with a nothing hand, which is also emotionally negative.

Even 5+5 games feel like a stretch to me (though I see that UX is fairly popular), and 5+10 just knocks it straight out.

Edit: I just ran another round back down to ~500... I made money on 6 hands-- 3OAK-3OAK, 3OAK-SF, 2x2P-F, 2P-S... this thing must have astronomical variance... not my cup of tea, still.

Gotta agree with Venthus.
Either the correct strategy is extremely counter-intuitive, or the volatility is insanely high. Feels like you are playing a game with a RTP of 60%.

We should have the title changed soon. Keep checking back.

Thanks for the feedback Venthus.

Once we adjust the bet to the 5 + 5 format, maybe that will change your experience to a more positive one. You can also try changing the multiplier to one of three different pay scales by clicking on the arrow under the pay scale which may also provide you with a better playing experience.

You may also enjoy the three hand option once we get to it!

Anyway, I appreciate you taking the time to provide your thoughts.

We will have an update very soon to adjust the RTP to something much more player friendly.

Another thing I don't quite get is why JoB is listed as a 1*; at first it made me thing that not having a JoB+ on the multiplier hand meant I got no payout at all, then I thought it was a +1x, but that doesn't seem to be the case either. A high pair in the multiplier hand is the same as having nothing.

We are working on the best way to separate the two pay scales to make it less confusing for the player. The discard hand is actually a x1 multiplier for any pair according to the math we are using for the Jack's or better game. We should have an update very soon.
