player statisticals

Post by Antebellum Reb »

i have a quick question; when a person plays the games listed on this site it keeps track of the number of hands you played along with any results, win or lose. when i pick a game that is a multiple hand game (like 3 hands or 5 hands or 10 hands) does it count each single hamd played as a hand credited to me, or is it simply every time i hit deal that is counted. so if i played 10 handed draw poker and hit deal a total of 5 times, would it show as 5 hands played or fifty-50 hands played?

In most cases (such as when earning stars or viewing ) a "hand" is one deal played, or one starting hand.

For leaderboard scoring, scores would of course be based on the number of hands you are playing within the game, or rather the total amount bet and the total amount won.

But I can't think of anywhere on the site where it reports "hands" as the total hands played per deal multiplied by the number of deals. The only place I can think of where "hands" refers to the number of hands played per deal would be when setting up a training session or selecting a pay table.

So the short answer is, one "hand" per deal, when tracking the amount of play. But if there is a particular number you are looking at let me know and I can clarify.

Like in my case when playing 10 play, this only registers as 1 hand played on the register toward earning stars.

Correct. That way all games progress at (relatively) the same rate based on participation.

In a casino, points are earned based on coin-in, so more hands = more points. But that wouldn’t make as much sense here when the games are free no matter how many hands you play. :)

Every month there is a featured game that gives you double players club points. Right now for instance 100 play STP is giving double players club points. If you go to play live poker it shows the game that is currently getting double players club points in the upper right hand corner. :up:
