Hi all, I know the common thread of thought is to always play 5 credits to get the max jackpot for the royal flush in VP. But, is that always the best play when you have better payout tables if you raise your bet value? For example, my local casino has JOB $0.25 and $0.50 with a paytable of 7/5, and the paytable at $1.00 is 8/5. I cannot afford (for very long anyway, lol) to play max bet at $1. I came across a strategy to kinda play both sides of it. To keep it simple I will explain using a $20 initial cash input. Bet 1 credit at the $1 level. If you are at or above your initial $20 and hit a payout of 4 credits or more, raise your bet to max credits. If you win, continue at max credits until you lose, then drop back down to 1 credit. Repeat this as long as you are above your initial buy-in. This still gives you the chance to hit the royal at max credits, but it does also allow you to play longer on a smaller bankroll and with a better paytable. I typically don't play JOB when doing this, usually deuces wild or bonus poker. I also follow a strict rule of cashing out my tito if I double my initial buy-in. That tito goes in my pocket until I leave, at least then I may leave with some cash....lol! I will then start the process with a new $20 buy-in. I guess it will all depend on your temperament as well, it wouldn't be nice to see a royal at the the lower bet, but it wouldn't bother me for long...........This also makes it a bit more interesting, instead of just banging away at the button, it makes you pause and think just a bit more. Thoughts?
