Big Win Poker

Introduction

Big Win Poker is a video poker variant I noticed at the Red Rock casino on December 13, 2011. It is one of many games on a machine titled "Magic Touch." The interesting thing about Big Win Poker is it pays 0 for a two pair. In Jacks or Better the two pair is the hand that returns the most money, so making it pay 0 gives a lot of room to increase the other pays.

Unfortunately, they were not increased enough to make the pay tables very competitive, at least at the Red Rock. Following are the pay tables I observed there. The higher the denomination, the better the pay table, as usual.

Note that a Two Pair hand where at least one of the pairs is Jacks or Better will award the prize for Jacks or Better.
