    I would say it is 4 of the same card you draw on the first hand. I had someone tell me it is 4 of the same card without a wild card. Maybe I am wrong?

    This would be my example of a natural 4OAK. Thoughts?

    Natural means no wildcards

    a more precise term for "your" natural would be a "dealt natural" vs a drawn natural-

    doesn't really matter cause they pay the same compared to 4oak with a wild card (wish they paid more if dealt)

    At the end of the hand, meaning at showdown and after any draws have been made, four cards of the same rank.

    As @Hard6n8 said, no wild cards.

    This game is incredible. I was actually just discussing with my wife that I wish I could invent a game similar to this. Or a 10 credit game where you have the option to make deuces wild lol

    I call it a miracle, unless the other player has a straight flush. Then I call it "go back into the boot."

    I'm pretty sure a natural four of a kind is one dealt when you are naked
