Re: video stud poker (Sigma multi-line VP)
- Please read this post with a grain of salt as the writer may be
directly or indirectly involved with this particular issue.
I'm looking at my dated Par Sheet (the posted return may or may not
be correct), and the closest base game assuming the straight pays 25
(5 for 1) versus the 20 (4 for 1) number listed and quad 2-10s pay
25 for 1, quad Js, Q, or Ks pays 40 for 1, and quad aces pays 80 for
1 has a "possible" return of 99.34%. Two things to keep in mind:
(1) if the straight does pay 20, then the return is lower, and
(2) you have to adjust the return for the RF consolation prize,
which may add about another 0.47%+ for 1,000-coin; for a 2,000-coin
consolation prize, the return may increase by another 0.95%+.
The strategy had been prepared but has not been publicly disclosed
(I don't want to get into this on a public forum).
To summarize, I don't have the return for your game, but if the pay
schedule is 1/1/2/5/6/8/[25-40-80]/50/800 then it is about 99.34%
and you need to add a bonus for the RF consolation prize.
Here's the link before the game was subsequently renamed:
PS For some strange reason (please don't ask me why), the RF
consolation prize is not listed on the paytable, so you have to read
the HELP SCREEN to see (1) if the game does offer this and (2) when
it will be awarded.
