Black Jack Bonus Poker

Introduction

Black Jack Bonus Poker is a video poker variation I noticed at the Gold Coast in Las Vegas in February 2006. At first I was confused, wondering how a player could get a four of a kind plus a blackjack in five cards. Then I realized you didn't need a blackjack but a black jack (note the two words). I had to use my slow video poker program to analyze this one, because with jacks not all suits are equal, which takes four days to run for a single pay table. Here are the results of two pay tables. The Gold Coast had the 9/6 pay table.
