    I'm thinking about trying out this game on my upcoming trip. Anyone have an experience playing? If so, where did you play and how did you do? Has anyone seen the game at any MGM casinos or is just at CET properties?

    So far, on the strip, they are at CET properties. I like the game a lot, but realize more and more, it is a money vacuum. The first time I played it, I was up around $4k, and not playing any of the bonus bets. I started at $5 minimum and was quickly playing table max of $200. The second night I played, i played the bonus bets, and just happened to get a 6 card straight flush which paid $10k on the straight flush bonus. The other bonus paid 100-1 on a $75 bet...if I remember correctly...i just remember the big payout...lol. Anyways, by the end of my two week trip, I pretty much dumped all of those winnings back into the game. Since then, I play it everytime I am in vegas, but have only won one other time, and for a very measely amount...lol. It is a fun game, but the streaks can be very brutal, especially if you play the bonus bets.

    My last trip I stayed at caesars so I got ample time to observe this game and for the life of me ...... I still can't figure it out! I'm a big fan of the carnival games like 3 card poker and let it ride but for some reason High Card Flush confuses me..

    Side bets are 7% and 11% house edge. So don't play them and get 3 four card straight flushes in first 20 hands dealt like I did.

    Thanks everyone for the info. If I happen to be near a CET casino I think I'll give it a try.

    The side bets were pretty rough on me when I tried the game at Harrahs NKC over the Fourth of July. And I only bet $1 each on them...lol I bled off $100 in a hour bettng the minimum. Surprisingly that was apparently enough play for me to get a discounted room for this month. I played virtually nothing else there that trip.

    Odd . . . it's actually one of the easiest strategies to learn of any table game. The only thing that I think confuses some people is that straight flushes only count for the bonus - not the base game. That 2-3-4 of diamonds is a bonus hand, but it's not something you want to play against the dealer. Take your 7-1 and then fold the hand.
