I've been playing the contests for a while now and I'm curious which game to play for the best score in 50/100 hands.
I was doing Bonus poker, my thought is that few hands having a double score for 2 pair adds up, but what if I hit 4 of kind especially if I playing 50 or Hundred play hands.
Joker Poker and Deuces wild are fun but I always feel like I'm leaving points on the table. Although if I do hit a Natural Royal the points are the same.
Just Curious,

Hi Pierre, welcome to the forums.

The short answer is Triple Double Bonus, if that's not available, then Double Double Bonus or Super Double Double Bonus.

That's if by " best bang for your buck" you mean best chance of winning or placing. The high variance games will give you more sessions with low totals, but it will also give you more sessions of super-high totals.

Long answer:

Normally when you're playing VP in a casino you want the game with the best return (and perhaps low variance) which is usually JoB or Deuces Wild, but in contests things are different.

The winner is going to be someone who hits a high paying hand, so you want a high variance game that gives you more options to hit $4000 and $2000.

So in Bonus Poker, you only have one 4 combinations of 5 cards that will win you $4000, where as in Triple Double Bonus Poker, you have 16.

Now, if your goal is not winning the contests, but rather having the most qualifying sessions, then you might want to play the game which has the best return (it varies, so you have to check return tables)

Let us know if you have any other questions.

The default game display on CET machines seems to be Aces and Faces. Do you know what I'm talking about? Personally, I wish it was JOB. Let the adventurous gamblers switch out.

It's probably first alphabetically. And when I'm at a CET casino, I usually don't notice Aces and Faces.

If you want to win a contest on this site you are wasting your time here unless you start sucking up big time to Webman. Sucking up to the point you have your head up his six so far that you know what he had for dinner the night before. If you refuse to do that you really have zero chance of winning a contest here.

Ok I'm lost....are you being totally serious and real with all this apparent criticism of webman and the "integrity" of the contests on this website? Seriously, is this for real or are you just pulling all our legs with a fake feud????

Despite being a pain in the six, you're still one of my favorites, edog. Don't ever change.

Other than losing so much. Change that.

Ok thanks webman for clearing that up... that's what I was hoping and wanting to believe, that he was just being silly and goofy....it was very authentic sounding though, some of it!
