July Game Spotlight – Ultimate X Poker

This month, we are featuring one of the most popular games in casinos, Ultimate X Poker.

Ultimate X provides lots of fireworks! A bonus multiplier is awarded to each active hand ending in a winning combination. The value of the multiplier is determined by the pay schedule and is applied to any wins received in that hand in the next game. This makes Ultimate X Poker a game where each successive hand is almost guaranteed to be more exciting than the last!

You'll earn 2X Players Club points for playing and can play Ultimate X right now by clicking here.

June's iPad Winner – It Pays to Play!

Congratulations to brmac82, our latest iPad winner. Brmac82 played 920 sessions during June which earned roughly a 1 in 1,045 chance of winning the random drawing. We've also awarded GOLD memberships to 10 other random winners.

At the end of every month, we will have a random drawing and award a brand new iPad Air to one lucky winner and GOLD memberships to 10 other winners. Each contest session you play during the month gives you an entry into the drawing, so the more sessions you play, the better your chance of winning!

Since all contests are now playable on mobile devices, brmac82 will be able to play on a brand new iPad!

Training Mode is a real time training tool that helps you become a better Video Poker player.

There are 4 key learning tools in Training Mode including the Stop Light - which indicates if you've made the right hold, Best Hold – which shows you the correct hold, Hand Tracker – which highlights the number and percentage of correct holds you've made, and PICK – which lets you choose the hand you want dealt so you can test your skills.

This Month's Kicker

I was in Las Vegas, enjoying the new Cromwell Boutique Resort. The Casino was always a fun place when it was Bill's - even years ago, when it was the Barbary Coast. Now, it's clean, and new, and real nice. I enjoyed the uniqueness & creativity of this new effort when I stayed there. Almost as unique as the Cosmopolitan! But I digress. Anyway, I met a friend who came to meet me from Arizona, and we were playing Video Poker side-by-side on neighboring machines. Suddenly, I hit Aces with a Kicker! Hooray! In two minutes, the hand pay attendants were peeling of Benjamins!

Okay, the good folks in uniform made a W2-G, and paid $2000, and left the balance ($20) on the machine. It took 5 minutes or so to sign & verify everything, then back to play. I decided to play off the $20 before leaving to go rejoice! The first hand was a three-of-a-kind! The second hand was a Royal Flush! A lifetime first! $6000 in ten minutes on the same machine!
