I have seen this frequently, the game moves up the lowest suited card to make a flush in the bonus hand, rather than a higher suited card that would also make the flush and offer straight flush possibilities on future hands.



I would prefer to get to pick my top row cards. I had one last night that was like AcKcJs I had a Qs so it moved it up to make a straight but it removed the Ac instead of Js which cost me a chance at the royal.
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed. I AM NOT WHO YOU THINK I AM.

So, I have several pictures of wrong-weighted string bonus selections, but the one I want to put up is this. You can use it elsewhere if you want.

I do think you should be holding the 66, because you know it will fill the SF (as well as AA). The game pays best with good multipliers up top, and it costs very little to make that hold.

There are some UX things you do for that game in order to protect next hand multipliers, that make you vary from OS for a particular variation. Why wouldn't this game have a similar OS?



I agree that the two 6's should be held with the pair of aces. I misread the original post and thought he had only the six of spades with the two aces and didn't realize it was a pair of 6's.

There, that should explain everything, LOL. Remember, these are my working notes.

In addition there are modifications to these kind of rules to avoid discarding a card that will give you a high multiplier in the next hand. For example if the Bonus cards are AsKs4h, then, with one rare exception involving Quad Aces, you should NEVER discard a Qs from your primary hand, because a winning hand with the Qs will give you a String Royal and a multiplier of 50 in the next hand (and any succeeding hands.) There are lots of those kind of rules about cards that will give you a Straight Flush or 3 of a kind in the Bonus Hands, but I have not yet worked them all out.



Really impressive work gordonm888! It's very interesting to hear what others would consider the best play in certain situations. I think the casino could probably offer the game at the 99% return because there are so many options to remember when playing. I created the game and I still have a number of hands where I have to second guess what I'm doing.

Anyway, I appreciate you providing your expertise on how to play the game.

I like the general feel. It took a bit to grasp how it actually worked (I like going into the Realize Gaming demos blind...) but it worked out pretty well.

Burn rate felt kind of high, but then I got a nice string of winners that pushed me well into positive, which is more or less how it's supposed to work. I'd like to see this for something other than DDB, which I already view negatively due to a top heavy paytable.

One auto-decision for the bonus hand felt kind of strange-- 8c Jc **... I had a Qc and a 6c that could have moved up. I'd've moved the Qc up, so there's 2 to an outside SF, and 1 to the royal, but instead it moved the 6c, giving me 2 to an inside SF. What caused that?



Thanks Venthus! Glad you approve of the game and you could figure it out. I've had a couple companies say they couldn't understand it. It may take a few hands to get the concept down, but overall most have understood it and most importantly enjoyed it.

I'd love for a company to pick up the game and also create the jacks or better version and deuces wild, etc. Time will tell, so stay tuned.

You are correct on the auto-decision you mentioned. It must not always be taking into consideration all the cards and which one helps out the most and puts the player in the best situation for subsequent hands.

We have discussed creating another version where the player will control the choice of which card to send to the string hand and which one to replace. If people are interested, we can look into doing it.

Nice win, Babs! I will definitely use it.

Here's my best win so far. You can see that I was down to $2,360, so I really needed this, lol. Then, five hands later, I got quad 10s with a 4X multiplier!
