I am interested in this game but how can I find the payback on an individual game? I know how to find the payback on the payment after the draw, but I would think the overall pay back would be dependent on the pay scale in place before the draw? Does anyone know how I can find this information?

Logically, you play the same strategy as if it was normal VP, so the only difference would be in the payback from the initial draw.

If you know the pay table, it is easy enough to calculate: for each result, multiply the number of hands of that type by the payout, then sum those values and divide by 2,598,960 (the number of different 5-card deals); add this to the "normal VP" payout for that game.
