Multi strike revenge

Post by Carcounter »

I posted a while ago on a bad session on 9/6 JOB multi strikes where I hit nothing on the third and fourth lines and lost I think about 1K in a hurry. Got my revenge yesterday at Borgata. Had about 2 hours to play in between meetings, put a hundred in and starting hitting winning hands like crazy. Although I didn't hit any quads on the third or fourth lines, full houses were showing up in flurries. Won $1,040 before i had to cash out

Multi strike can be very unforgiving. I practice it on occasion but have not played in a casino in about two years. Way too volatile for me. Played right, it's challenging.

Funny, usually I am in a hurry to get into the casino and start playing if I am on a tight schedule. But this time I walked slowly, got something to eat and figured maybe starting the button pushing sequence at the right time will reward me. It did.

Excellent revenge. PM play has been notably better for me. Just lay off MS and have BR last.

yes multi strike at Borgata has fullpay job 99.79% with correct play.different strategy on each line than regular job.not too tough to learn but as billyryan said , massive variance !! I could never find the exact variance of multi strike. I woold guess its near 100 compared to 19.51 variance of fullpay job !!

Well, it's still the best VP game at the Borgata, so i play it. Have the strategy down pretty well. Just go for the best chance of a winning hand on the first 2 lines, then play normal9/6 JOB strategy on lines 3 and 4.

That isn't the correct strategy. Even line #3 has changes to the normal JOB strategy. I was at the Multi Strike class at South Point this year. The class started with about 30 people. At the end there were only 5 of us left.
