# Double Pay Poker/Deal Draw Poker

## Introduction

Double Pay Poker and Deal Draw Poker are the same game. Why it needs two names, I don't know. This page shall address both games. The humdinger is that the player can win after the deal and the draw.

## Rules

Double Pay Poker and Deal Draw Poker offer an additional feature to conventional 3-, 5-, and 10-play video poker. I assume the reader is already familiar with the concept of multi-play video poker.

1. The player will choose to player the 3-play, 5-play or 10-play format as well as a base game. The base games in my experience are as follows:
2. Ideally, the player will be 10 coins per line, with 5 coins bet each on the deal and draw. The player may bet less per play, but then he will get penalized on the win for a royal flush, on both the deal and draw.
3. The player will be dealt a unique hand for each play on the deal. Each play will be dealt from a separate deck, so the same card may appear in multiple hands. The player will be paid according to the poker value of each play on the deal and the pay tables indicated below.
4. The player will hold cards on the bottom hand only.
5. The shall proceed like conventional multi-play poker, where replacement cards are dealt from a separate deck of the remaining 47 cards to each play.
6. Please note that any cards seen on the deal, except to the bottom hand, are placed back in the deck for the bottom hand on the draw.

## Example

The image above shows my hands after the deal. The player is dealt a three of a kind in the middle hand and a medium pair on the bottom hand. On the deal, a three of a kind pays 6 for 1 and a medium pair pays 1 for 1. Based on five credits bet on each hand, the total return on the deal is 5×(6+1) = 35.

The image above shows my hands after the draw. I held the two tens on the bottom hand. The middle and bottom hand improved to three of a kinds, which pay 3 for 1. Based on a five coin bet on each hand, my win after the draw was 5×(3+3) = 30. My combined win for the hand was 35+30 = 65.

## Analysis

Below you will find three different pay tables for each of the four types of games on the deal. Later, there is a list of the return on the draw for the same games and common pay tables. To get the overall return, simply average the return on the deal and draw. In my experience, the deal and draw returns are almost the same.
