Deal Draw

Post by Deb O »

Deal Draw is really fun; I have never seen that game is a casino.

Sometimes its listed as Double Pay Poker.

Here's what is looks like on the main menu and a random pay table.

Yes, it is really fun. Until you have 9 straight and counting losing trips playing it. Nice getting paid for a pair of 5's, but probably best that you haven't seen it in a casino (especially that pay table).

Getting paid for pairs of 5s through 10s is there because it's a STUD pay table, not a DRAW pay table. The stud pay table is set to pay a little more than the base game. In this case 9/6/4 Double Bonus, where the base game returns 96.375%. Playing that in the Double Pay version returns about 96.5% and should be avoided by anybody who is interested in preserving their bankroll.

I play 9/7 TDB where the Draw table pays 99.58%, and the Deal pays 98.86% resulting in a decrease overall to 99.22% (according to WoO). Seems to be opposite of the above example. In poorer Draw tables they will also frequently shortchange full house and flush on the deal table. In the TDB version you want to see 250 & 100. I have seen 200 or 175 and 80 on poor tables/lower denominations which makes a lousy game horrendous. In addition to relying on kicker hands to tread water in the DDB and TDB versions, an absence of dealt straights, flushes and full houses will often result in ruin. Even at 99.22% you can lose money at an alarming rate.

I'm pretty sure that since I've played VP pretty regularly in the last 10 years, I can count the number of people that play either of these 2 games on just one hand.
