had multiple royals and was up past the inital amount all of the time. quit when i got back to 10000 the other verisons have been fun too. i have many screen shots of my wins with i think up to 5 (EDIT it was only 3 but still) string multipliers in a row most of the time.



Love to see your royal wins if you can upload and post them, heatmap.

The initial wager allows and "balances out" the ability to win a number of bonus hands. If I remember correctly, in the 1 billion simulations of the game, the most consecutive wins was 23! I think I've personally had 11 wins in a row and typically when you get a good number of consecutive wins you get a good overall win for the round.

Just got a string royal with a dealt flush, then 6 consecutive wins. I don't think the demo is playing fair :-(



Did you get a dealt string royal with 6 consecutive wins? It sounds like that could be a pretty good win.

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 GWAE.

It definitely isn't cheap to play, but it does provide the high volatility that some players are attracted to. I would definitely be comfortable playing it at the dime level and depending how that goes move up to quarters at times. I'm more of the high risk high reward player so I understand that more than likely I will lose, but I want a chance to be excited and possibly win big.

We talked about requiring a bet for each hand (referring to the bonus hands) instead of allowing those to be free, but I like it better paying one wager for the entire length of the game. I think it would slow down the gameplay if the player had to wager every hand in the bonus. It could easily be done, but personally, I like the one wager covers all concept.

Sometimes the decisions made to populate the bonus hand are strange, bordering on player hostile.

For example, consider the following hand after the draw but before moving a card to bonus hand.

Ah 4h 8h

Qs Qc 9h 7s 3s

Game chooses to elevate the 9h. Fine, still a flush. But it replaces the 8h, rather than the 4h, eliminating the chance for a straight flush on the next replacement!
Maddening.

Edit:
Even worse action a few hands later:

5s Js 3s

Kh Kd Qs 9c 6c

Replaces Js with Qs; turning what would be a 2 card outside straight flush hand into a 2 card inside straight flush hand. Not to mention that the Ks is more likely to he held than 4s.

I like the game very much! I am a fan of high risk-high reward, and this does it nicely.

I think there are some issues with the choice of cards to move into the upper hand. The best potential card is not always selected.

For example 1, I had a flush in the upper hand, A94h. The 5 card hand won, and within it, there were T7h to move up. The game substituted the 7h for the 4h. The more advantageous pick would have been the Th because of the twice as many opportunities to fill a straight or a straight flush, both of more value than the flush.

Example 2 is longer. I had a flush up top, 45Jd. I had the QKd to select from in the lower hand. It replaced the J with the K. Why wouldn't it replace a low card with the Q? Same value to that hand (2 to a SF no gap, F), higher potential to the next hand since Q is part of a MiniRF.

Same game, next hand wins, 2d moves up to replace K. Correct but equal. Flush is 245d.

Same game, next hand wins, Kd moves up to replace 2d again. Equal at best, since any 3 will fill with or without the 2d.

But in general, I'm seeing a lot of cards move up to fill or possibly next hand fill a flush without regard to ranks of the other 2 cards, and replacement of flush cards that could straight, with unrelated flush cards. Those hands should have the bonus ride, rather than devaluing the flush by removing cards that could straight.

I think there should be an additional evaluation step in the "if flush, move up" without consideration of development of straights or SF, to look at the relative ranks, and choose the more correlated card.

Hope that's helpful. I did have a nice streak with a MiniRF in place that was worth over $2k. If you want those screenshots, I'll post a few. Think it was 750+250+250+750+250 or so.

Edit: I agree with megapixel, above, that the winning dealt line should highlight at a minimum, but as a demo, I'm not expecting it. It is industry standard, in my observation, to at least do this, although many also add a sound effect and/or a dialog box to alert you as well.

Great points LoquaciousMoFW. You are correct on both of the instances you noted above. While it is keeping the flush in place, it should also be looking at upgrading the flush along with providing the potential for a straight flush for both of those instances. We will look into it.

We also played around with letting the player choose the card to place in the string hand, but we thought it would slow down the game too much.

Are you talking about a winning dealt hand in the main hand? If so, would it be better if we had an autohold on a dealt winning hand in the main?

Here is the pay table we are using for the game. You can change the pay table by clicking on the bet before each game.

Yes, on the main hand. I'm not sure if autohold would be necessary, just a notification like the other poker games have.
