Lucky 8s Wheel Poker - Creative and Attractive

Post by jconifer7 »

I'm remembering so well how much I enjoyed playing Lucky 8s Wheel Poker when it was a weekly contest game. I never thought I would see the day I would hold a single 8 in a all-numbers nothing hand knowing I could get 2888 credits for four of them. It doesn't change strategies much at all since I would still prioritize a pair of aces in a bonus game, but as much as I like multiplier games like Ultimate X I do think wheel games are fun too and I loved the Chinese dragon theme. Don't get me wrong but it's the right kind of creativity needed in video poker, Barnyard Poker for what it's worth is not attractive.

I think more people would play video poker if they saw more creativity like Lucky 8s and to be honest it's given me ideas for game proposals that I actually would love to see turn into actual machines. I'm not sharing my ideas on this forum since I don't want to claim anything or ruin something IGT may have in development, but I want to hear some thoughts about you would like to see more of in the creative process.

Agreed. It is very fun but new VP games are hard to find in the casinos. Strategy is not changed that much from conventional play so you don't need to learn a whole new playing strategy.

Is this game still in casinos? It doesn’t show up when you search for it. I saw one Machine in Reno a couple years ago but it’s gone now
