Lucky Quads Wheel Poker

Introduction





Lucky Quads Wheel Poker is a simple video poker variant that awards a spin on a prize wheel for any natural four of a kind on the draw. To enable this feature, the player must pay a one coin fee on top of his standard five-coin bet.

Rules



The introduction pretty much says it all -- the game plays like conventional one-line video poker for the first five coins bet. For a sixth coin, the game will spin a prize wheel for any natural four of a kind on the draw.

The possible wins on the wheel are: 300, 350, 400, 2000, 100, 500, 200, 1000, 150, 800, 250, and 600. I don't know how the prize wheel is weighted, but IGT, the game maker, was kind enough to tell me the average wheel win is 421 coins for non-wild-card games and 463 for deuces-wild-based games.



The game bears a resemblance to Wheel Poker. Some differences are:

  • Lucky Quads is based on one line while Wheel Poker is based on three or five.
  • Lucky Quads has a video wheel while Wheel Poker has an actual wheel above the screen.
  • Lucky Quads has an average win on a spin of 421 for non-wild-card games and 463 for wild card games. For Wheel Poker, it is always 428.

Strategy



Except for the deuces wild games, you can use my video poker strategy maker to create strategies for this game. Just add the average win of 421 to the five-coin win of a four of a kind. If you prefer to put in the wins based on one coin, then add 421/5=84.2 (yes, you can put in decimal values).

I'm afraid the strategy maker won't work for the deuces wild games, because the player doesn't get the bonus spin for a wild four of a kind, and the strategy maker doesn't support the difference between a wild and natural four of a kind.

The player should always make the max six-coin bet, as it always increases the return marginally above that of a five-coin bet. The amount of increase varies from game to game, as the player has control over the frequency of a four of a kind.

Analysis



The many tables that follow are the games and pay tables available to Lucky Quads Wheel Poker. The wins shown for a four of a kind are the sum of the pay table win and average wheel win. The returns are the product of the win per coin (based on a five coin bet), probability, and 5/6. The reason for multiplying by 5/6 is the player must bet six coins, but the win is only five times the amount in the win column.

Jacks or Better



The following tables show how the return is composed for the available jacks or better pay tables. In the titles the pay tables are referred to by the wins on a full house and flush, which are the only pays that vary.
