Why U play Ultimate X

Post by LindaSioux »

Ultimate X in its original incarnation is by far my favorite video poker game. I have won more jackpots on it, been dealt royals 4 times and 4 aces more times that I can remember. i don't mind paying more to play, because it truly gives you more chances to win!

Do you play multi-line?

You do get many chances to win --- and you pay for them with twice the money per hand, bad pay schedules at most places, and a far different strategy for this game than regular video poker. The vast majority of winners at UX are the vultures, who play off multipliers left behind by unwitting gamblers. For players playing the game straight up, a high percentage of them are big losers.

Vulturing on the late weekend nights are always the most profitable for me. This past weekend starting on nickels and scaling up, I turned a 10 dollar bill into 140 dollars without having to go back into my wallet. I did have some out of the ordinary amazing quarter denom hits but it still shows you the power of vulturing. I never sweat the money because I have a steep advantage on those things. $50 on one multihand ddb draw would normally make my stomach drop, but when I have a 40% advantage from left behind multipliers I don't mind since if I keep repeating it I will be far into the positive. The only downfall I can think of is wasted time if it's a dry night (weekdays are the worst), and feeling like a bummy crackhead scanning them all lol. I feel really sh*tty looking through 15 bartops and only finding one 2x on a nickel denom.

There are no 99 percent Ultimate X games where I play. Not even close. Long term, unless you have a leprechaun who lives on your shoulder, they will eat you alive.

Yea, it's DEFINITELY not my cup of tea to sit there and play. I only like it for the advantage play angle.
