    I stopped in at Hollywood Casino in St. Louis this week while in town on business. I played a 25-play VP machine there but forgot to write down the name...

    If you played max coin (7) on this machine that went down as low as 1 cent, it would have a mystery value bonus for each hand that you hit on (hands higher than what you were dealt on the first hand). So, for instance, if you were dealt 3 of-a-kind on the first hand & saved those, it would pay a bonus on Flush or 4-of-a-kind. This machine did not pay a bonus for Straight Flush or Royal Flush..the bonuses were variable in amount so didn't pay the same each time..

    Anyone know the name of this machine and if you've seen it anywhere in Las Vegas? I threw $10 into the machine and got it up to $30 but only had $5 left when I quit...

    Ultimate X is sort of like that. Until I figured it out when we first played, I thought the multipliers were random. Nope - they are based off what you hit on the previous hand(s).

    Something like this Never seen 25 lines though.

    There is also SuperTimes Pay

    It's called "Rack 'Em Up Poker".

    Unfortunately videopoker.com doesn't have it in their casino listings, so no clue where it is in Vegas.

    Please be aware that this game doesn't have the same optimal strategy as standard VP.

    Here is a clear strategy change example from me playing it at Hollywood.

    Standard strategy would tell you to go for the Royal Flush here. I, however, held 4 to a flush because it greatly increased my chances of a sizeable Bonus win (310 credits) from converted flushes.

    Also another general strategy change I would expect thinking offhand is an open-ended straight draw beats a low pair.
