Spin Poker

Post by redrock1 »

My least favorite game is Spin Poker. I complete the contests when I have no choice but cannot imagine why anyone finds this game interesting.

I actually like Spin Poker, but my suggestion would be to try Ultimate X Spin Poker. Alot of action in the game.

I liked the 9/6 JoB SP with Super Times Pay we had here. There were 2 of them. Got my first dealt royal on it for $9000.

I really like spin poker, have done well through the years with it. Gives me back something most of the time. The one I hate is multi strike, usually sucks up my money with minimal fun.

I've liked spin poker since I first discovered at the then riverboat in our area, must be over 20 years ago, probably more. I don't know why anyone would play Dream Card or any game where the bet is double a normal bet so a high pair gets you half the bet back. But to each their own. We all have our favorites and the games we hate and those in between. That's what makes the world go round.

I'm not crazy about Spin Poker, but adding Ultimate X to it has me onboard. Hoping to find it in Casinos this weekend.

Spin Poker sometimes has the best paytables in the casino on quarter and up. It can be good to just do 1 line on it, that basically makes it a single line game. The only caveat to that is a psychological one: Lining up something huge on another visible line and you're not playing it. I once was playing bonus poker on 5 quarters on one line, and on the third line on a 3 to a royal hold the royal itself came out. -_- I then told myself I would need 3 times the money to play those three lines so that made me feel a little better lol.

Once you go above 3 lines, isn't the math of the game a little different variance-wise because there's less cards drawn on the hold (multiple lines sharing the same cards)? I never really seen that be talked about. It seems if you get a nice hand on certain lines it crosses over to other lines if it's lined up. So if you play all 9 lines I think the variance is different than if you played 9 hands on a normal game like super times pay. I think that adds volatility am I wrong?

Once in a while, the stars align for you when playing one line on Spin Poker.
