Error in Face Card Frenzy Hand Analyzer

Post by Vman96 »

My friend is in Vegas right now and tried Face Card Frenzy at Park MGM tonight. He said he has been practicing TDB here and showed an example where the calculator told him to hold AAA3. This is correct in normal TDB, but looks to be horribly incorrect in Face Card Frenzy.

The original post came from here and I copied it below. Im "tringlomane" on that forum.

Perhaps tringlomane can chime in

If you hold AAA3:
(1/47)(6000) + (3/47)(375) + (43/47)(15) = 165.32 coins per hand

Hold AAA only
(11/1081)(6000) + (12/1081)(6000) + (23/1081)(4000) + (66/1081)(375) + (969/1081)(15) = 249.11 coins per hand

ACMike is right, and the calculator is way, way off. :(

Could you please look into this Webman? Maybe the hand analyzer is using the standard TDB paytable on accident?

Thanks for pointing this out. Unfortunately, Training Mode should not have been enabled for Face Card Frenzy in the app as we don't have the strategy files ready for that yet. So yes, it was using standard strategy, which is incorrect. The game has been temporarily removed until this is fixed.
