you like Video Poker because:

(1) you are in control over the play.
(2) you are antisocial.
(3) You don't like the dealer.
(4) You want more hands per hour.
(5) You want larger pays and endure the different variance to have a chance at it.
(6) You want measurable comps or have a multiplier with slot play.
(7) You don't want to play with other jerks.
(8) The casino cheats at blackjack (see other thread)
(9) The casino cheats at VP
(10) You would rather stare at a CRT than the middle of a pit.

Multistrike I think is 8 x 800 = 6,400 but you bet 4 units so it's only x 1600 (you bet 20 units to win 32,000).

For the other six variations do we have any pictures of a 5x or more win?

Has anyone hit that? Are there VP junkies that play those variation games? Does the variance become too high with the extra credits bet?


Some people do, yes.

Variance is higher but that doesn't mean it's unplayable. Either need a bigger edge, bigger bankroll, or lower denom.

im not AP but if there was a multiplier day that puts the vp game over 100%, i'd play it even if there is nose bleed high variance.

ie:
multistrike (9/6 JoB) = 99.79%
variance = 300

this is the highest variance vp game I've ever seen

In black jack it can appear knowing nothing you might be better off at times. Hit/bust, stand/lose, at a few moments you might wish you hunch bet.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

You could also be batsh*t lucky in VP too by doing something stupid like keeping wrong cards and getting a Royal anyway:

I submit exhibit A:



This strategy is wrong.

This strategy is right.



You can tell what kind of gambler I am - these pay tables are crap.

I know someone who claims if they have 2,4,6,8 rainbow with any 10 on single line and redraw a Royal they will quit VP for life.

I'm still waiting to hold 3,4 suited on TDB and redraw three more 3's or 4's.



Semi-recently playing DDB, I held an Ace only and redraw four 2/3/4's. Or maybe it was TDB I don't remember (it was on 5c UX).

18 yo's in a row and no one bet it once.
To lose 30 hands of BJ in a row. I'm up to 7 as of now, or was it 5? F it, let's round up to 8 and disregard pushes.
Hit 5 single lines Royals in one day, AND STILL LOSE.
