    I’ve recently discovered on videopoker.com a fairly new IGT variation of video poker called Hyper Bonus Poker. It has a choice of 8 games including Triple Play Deuces Bonus Poker. The feature of this game that I like is if you play at max bet... the bottom line is dealt first and if it is a winning hand the feature is activated and each of the 3 lines is assigned their own multiplier of 1x to 12x. The 2nd and 3rd line is never 1x but always a higher multiplier.
    The reason I like this feature is because it is only activated when you have a winning hand on the first draw. So many times I have gotten an activation number on a nothing hand and it has been wasted... this way when the feature is activated... you will always have a winner of some kind on each line.
    If you should see this game in a downtown Las Vegas casino, please let me know... I think this might be something I’d like to play for real not just online.

    It's an interesting game, but what I don't like about it is that IGT has literally designed the game to never return >99% as shown in the media sheet pdf below. And another thing that pisses me off about it, is the help screen by itself is insufficient to calculate the final return of the game because they do not disclose the average multiplier. Assholes. :grrr:



    More bad news, according to videopoker.com, no downtown casino has it. However, this list isn't always up to date. I would definitely look at Downtown Grand which says none of these "gimmick" games exist, even STP or Ultimate X. I'm sure that's wrong.


    Lots of CET properties on the strip have it, as do some MGM. I think Harrah's offers 9/5 DDB likely with the crappier multiplier which would return 97.88%, an extra 0.01% over the base game...:grrr:

    Not sure about deuces though. :(

    Also as you may have noticed in the play money game, this game is very swingy since multiplier wins are only on dealt winners, so if you don't get those dealt winners, the game is like a vacuum. Too swingy for this tightwad...:evillaugh
