    the only 2 Royals I have gotten were on JOB, I don't play a lot of VP but the last several years I have switched to DDB, and it seems that I get many FOAK which I rarely got while playing JOB, we all play for the royal but it just seems that the FOAK shows up more on DDB than the JOB and it really shouldn't your thoughts

    The vast majority of our play is JoB. Occasionally we might play a bit of BP.

    I generally play BP, as I don't like giving up the 2 coins for two pairs, which you lose on DDB, etc. My second choice is Deuces (depending partly on paytable) as Ilike the more thought that goes into the various combinations. JOB is third choice.

    Almost always DDB unless it is really kicking my ass. As far as your perception that quads show up more in DDB, it's just an illusion and perhaps the fact that they pay better so you remember them more than the 125 coins on JOB.

    DDB - JOB is boring to me. And now I mostly play that on Ultimate X :).

    DDB at the quarter level is my game of choice also these days. Love those 4oaks. Love getting those cards at MSS for a 4oak. I almost like getting 4 aces w/kicker better than a RF. But I will take the royal anytime!! Will also play Ultimate X for smaller coin and some STP just to break up the monotony.

    While I appreciate the thrill of the 4oaK on DDB and DB, the variance is a little steep for my tastes. I really like the stability of JoB or BP, and even NSUD. Hard to find FPWD these days, but when it was more abundant, it was my first choice.

    DDB here. Almost can't play JoB anymore because I kick myself if I get quads - especially premium quads.

    I'm about 80% DDB and 20% Boner Deluxe. JoB just doesn't do it for me...125 credits for quads? :snore:

    BP and DW make up the majority of my VP play. When I play DW, it's almost always DSTP. BP split between regular and STP.

    Bonus Poker for me, I hate how fast my money goes on games that pay 5 credits for two-pair. Occasionally will dabble in the other games and the gimmicky games.

    If you're playing proper strategy for each game then sometimes certain hands will more likely appear. I don't know what it is for quads, but when you play the proper strategy for each game you have the best chance of getting a Royal in Bonus Poker (1 in 40,233) and the worst chance is playing Double Bonus (1 in 48,048). http://wizardofodds.com/games/video-poker/royal-or-bust/

    I wouldn't be surprised if there is something about DDB strategy that makes quads more common, specially since they pay WAY more than JOB.

    DDB is the game I play the most. I love those quads with the kicker.

    I am with you. I hate the variance. I will dabble in full pay Double Bonus downtown and some bonus deluxe but I am 97% jacks or bonus depending best payout percent. Example I play 9/6 jacks at boars head.

    I will at times play stp/dstp and other gimmicks.

    You may win bigger but who is least impactful on the bankroll? No illusion (you challenge my facts and I will print out and bring to share) But obviously the ddb payout are more kick for the play

    Super Double Bonus and Super Double Double Bonus. Better pay tables here in Minnesota for those games than DDB and DB.

    No 9/5 DDB at your local? That's better than 6/5 Super DDB. Sorry about your state's stupid, stupid law.

    My favorite and most played game is TDB. I like playing for the bonus quads, especially when Aces with kicker pay the same as a royal. I know your money will last a lot longer playing JOB but I find it too boring.
