String Multiplier Poker is officially finished and I wanted to share the updated version with everyone. We were able to keep our multipliers for the game at a higher level along with still offering the x100 multiplier for the dealt mini royal. The game will require a 5 + 20 wager and it has a 99.1% RTP. The wager also covers all the bonus hands the player is awarded for winning consecutive hands as the initial wager covers them. Give the game a try and please leave your feedback.

1. I do really like this game. I would play it a land casino or on-line.

2. It is very high volatility, obviously. There is just a lot of player equity tied up in low-frequency high-payout wins. Given the initial bet of 25 units, the frequency of hands (including the string bet feature) in which the payout is <25 seems to be discouragingly high. There is a tendency to play it for a long time and have your balance steadily decrease. This will be discouraging to new players, I think.

If you do succeed in getting placements, you may wish to consider giving Mike Shackleford your Return table and allowing him to publish it on WOO. That might help to educate the expectations of players. The string multiplier math on this game is difficult and specific to your algorithms, and so providing the return table might be the best way to go.

3. Occasionally, the game makes a replacement in the bonus hand that accomplishes nothing - such as replacing a 6 of hearts with a 6 of hearts from the primary hand. That is a holdover from the earlier version of the game in which the multiplier could be increased by +1 by that action. Its not a big deal, but it does slows down the game unnecessarily.

I must be missing something. Why did I win $5 on the following hand?

8h Ts Ks
Ad Qh 3h 2d 7d
Living longer does not always infer +EV

Perhaps you had won $5 on the previous hand, thus you were on a string bet and this hand was the subsequent losing hand (which was played without wagering new money.) At the conclusion of this hand it correctly showed you had won a total of $5 on the $25 that you had previously wagered.

Just got a string royal with a dealt flush, then 6 consecutive wins. I don't think the demo is playing fair :-(
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed.

I played for about 30 minutes. I do like the game but not sure that I would ever play for real money.

As a player Even at quarter level this would be a $5 a hand game or something like that. A little to rich for me.

As a casino I cant imagine that they would be too thrilled about a game that has a 50k payout at .25 level. Imagine getting a royal, then 2 or 3 wins then another royal. 100k pay out on 1 sequence.

Thanks for your feedback gordonm888. String Multiplier Poker definitely has a different feel when compared to other video poker games.

I would be more than happy to do this for this game and any of my other ones.

Keep an eye on the replacement card the autopicker is choosing to replace. It should be trying to upgrade the hand or start building a better multiplier. If the game chooses to place the exact same card, it probably is a hold over of the previous version. We replaced the +1 for placing the exact copy because it became very confusing to the player.

I think Gordon answered this in the following post. More than likely if you saw the yellow payline and you were paid $5 it was due to the end of the string bonus hand. You probably won $5 on the previous hand and this hand was not a winner which ends the bonus and pays out the culmination of wins from the bonus game.
