Double Super Times Pay

Introduction

Double Super Times Pay is a video poker variant I first saw at the Suncoast casino in Las Vegas on October 27, 2010. The game can be played like conventional video poker, in 3-play, 5-play, and 10-play modes. However, for an extra 2 coins bet per play, the player will have two chances to win a random multiplier.

Rules

As stated above, for a 7-coin bet per play the player will have two chances to win a random multiplier. The first chance is after the deal, and the second is after the draw. The player still gets a chance at the draw multiplier, even if he holds all five cards. Both multiplier opportunities have a 1 in 15 chance. If a multiplier is won, the average multiplier is 4.01. It is possible to win two multipliers, in which case they are added together.

There is an exception to the above rule for dealt royals. On a dealt royal, the probability of a multiplier on the deal is still 1 in 15, but if won, it is always 20, and there would be no opportunity for another multiplier on the draw. If the player does not win the 20x multiplier on the deal, then he gets a second chance at draw multiplier with a 1 in 15 chance, and average multiplier of 4.01.

In the image above, I won an 8x multipler, so my win of 5 for jacks or better paid 5 × 8=40 and the two pair paid 10 × 8=80.

Odds

Given the conventional return of any pay table, the return of Double Super Times Pay can be easily and accurately approximated by multiplying the base return by 1.00509. If that is too hard, just adding 0.5% to the base return will provide a very good estimate, especially for games near 100% return. However, for the perfectionists out there, if the return of the base game is b, then the return of the Super Times Pay version is 1.004126984 × b + 0.000921844.
