Draw 6 Poker

Introduction

Draw 6 Poker is a video poker variation I noticed at the Mirage on August 22, 2005. It plays like regular video poker, except the player gets 6 cards on the draw if he was dealt a three of a kind or certain full houses on the deal.

Return Tables

Following are return tables for the eight pay tables on the machine I saw at the Mirage. I also indicate which full houses the player gets to draw 6 cards to.
