Just so everyone knows, in case you're off the mailer list or haven't signed up for it yet, Atlantis Reno is running an online VP tournament through the 24th. Top winner is 3 nights in a suite, round trip airfare and $200 in free play. Pays 10 spots with decreasing value although 10th still gets 2 nights free. Downside is it's three play with multiplier, and unless you hit a RF with a multiplier active, you're never going to win enough points to place in the tourny. Still, FYI in case anyone really wants a few nights free in Reno. :)

Can play online through their member rewards web site or with Atlantis Reno app on phone or tablet.

Thanks for the tip. Probably just a promotional thing, but I signed up anyway. Love that area!

Thanks for the tip, I screw around once in awhile on the free WoO games or VP.com, anyway, so this gives me something to play for. I'm not going to spend any time I normally wouldn't play something on it, but I'll do only this for the next few days in terms of playing on-line.

No, it's just a ten-day high-score Video Poker contest by which the grand prize winner gets a free flight to Reno, three free nights and some amount of free play I forget.

Halfway through the 10-day tournament, and the current high score is 69k!

Looks like you need to be dealt a royal (or hit multiple royals) with a hefty multiplier active to win!

I wonder what strategy would make the most sense? Hold any 2 or more to a royal and discard everything else?

Double Double Bonus, Dealt Aces with a Kicker + 12x Multiplier = 72000, 11x Multiplier = 66000

Other than that, basically Dealt Royal with a multiplier or hit a Royal with a Multiplier and another big hand. Royal 11x = 44000 and Aces w/Kicker 12x = 24000, some combination of those hands with high multipliers.

Your odds would definitely be better to get the quad aces with kicker vs. the RF, given that they both would be enough w/multiplier, although it doesn't have to be dealt. They do award a couple winners per day just for playing so you at least have a long shot with that...otherwise yeah looks like it needs to be dealt. The weird thing I noticed about their app is sometimes it applies the multiplier to the hand you're about to play, before you play it, and sometimes it applies the multiplier after you discard on your current hand.

I figured that was intended, kind of like double super times pay where you can get the STP either on the first round or the draw, or both.

The game is pretty close to STP, but at a higher cost, (5 coins v. 1 coin for STP, 2 for double STP). So it seems that for the extra $$ you get 2 chances for the roll to come up on each hand, as well as the full run from 2x to 12x.
