Turkey Tourney

This month’s Turkey Tourney features a fun new game called Spin Fever. Normally available to GOLD members only, this game combines standard multi-hand game play with a bonus wheel spin. Each flush or better with max bet awards the corresponding wheel pointer, or increases the multiplier on the pointer if you haven't spun the wheel yet. Once any pointer is awarded, you can initiate a wheel spin at any time.

In addition to Visa gift cards to our Grand Prize winner and 4 runners up, we’ll award 3 month GOLD memberships to bonus round winners. And don’t forget the top ten qualify for the Tournament of Champions. The contest starts at noon Pacific time on Tuesday, November 22nd and ends November 30th at midnight Pacific. Click here for contest information.

Tournament of Champions Update

So far over 200 people have qualified for the 2011 Tournament of Champions that will be held online January 2-8th, 2012. When qualifying ends on December 31st, approximately 300 members will be competing for a Las Vegas Dream Vacation valued at over $5,000. Over 80 qualifiers have come from our random drawings so it pays to play whether you get great hands or not! Click here for more information about the Tournament of Champions.

New Game Spotlight: Build A Wheel

Build a Wheel Poker is a great new game that adds wheel spin bonus action to three and five play games. Each natural dealt three of a kind or better reveals one slice of the wheel. If you are dealt a full house or better, all slices are revealed. Once all slices are revealed, spin the wheel to win up to 10,000 additional credits! If you're a GOLD member, you can play this game right now before it hits casino floors.

Hand of the Month

This month we feature "roveer," who was dealt four aces at Harrah’s Atlantic City while playing Double Double Bonus Poker on a Super Times Pay machine. Congratulations, roveer! If you have a great winner to show, please send your picture to comments@videopoker.com and we'll feature our favorite each month!

This Month's Kicker

We all love aces and there’s nothing more maddening than when we get dealt three aces during a game and NONE of them convert to a quad.

Depending on the pay table, we draw four aces approximately 1 in every 4,252 hands (in 9/6 DDB). With a kicker, 1 in every 16,236 hands. How frequently will we get dealt aces? Every 54,145 games. And with the elusive kicker? Every 216,580 games!
