Powerhouse Poker

Introduction

Powerhouse Poker is a video poker variant by Action Gaming. The twist to conventional video poker is that if the player doubles his bet, then he will enable a feature that awards bonus hands, often with multipliers, if the player get a paying hand on the deal.

Rules

  1. Powerhouse Poker is based on conventional multi-play poker. The game may be played like conventional multi-play poker with 1 to 5 coins bet per play. If the player bets 10 coins per play, then he will enable the Powerhouse Poker features.
  2. If the Powerhouse Poker feature is enabled, then each play will be based on a five-coin bet. The other five coins per play is a non-refundable fee that pays for the feature.
  3. In the feature, if the player gets any paying hand on the deal, then he will be awarded with extra plays on the draw. Some of these extra plays will have multipliers.
  4. The tables below show the total number of additional multipliers won according to the game, pay table, and hand on the deal. Hands without a multiplier are treated as having a multiplier of one.

The following tables show the additional multipliers won according to the hand on the draw per number of plays bet. For example, if the player were playing 9-5 Double Double Bonus in 5-play mode and got a three of a kind on the deal, then the table shows he would win three multipliers per hand bet. Since the player bet on five hands, his total additional multipliers are thus 3×5 = 15.

Example

In the image above I was playing 5-play Jacks or Better and got a three of a kind on the deal. The game invites me to look up to see my bonus hands.

Above are my bonus hands. This game awards 3 multipliers for every play in the base game. Since I'm playing 5-play I get 3×5 = 15 multipliers. They are awarded among the nine hands you see in the bonus hand screen above. If you count the multipliers, counting plain hands as 1x, you will see the sum is 15.

I hold the three of a kind. Of my five original hands, one improved to a four of a kind. The win on the base hands is 4×15 + 125 = 185.

The image above shows the results of my bonus hands. Of the 15 multipliers, 10 remained a three of a kind, one improved to a full house, and four improved to a four of a kind. The total win on the bonus hands is thus 10×15 + 45 + 4×125 = 695. My overall win on the hand is 185 + 695 = 880.

Analysis Tables

The following tables show the key details for every game and pay table for Powerhouse Poker. Following is a description of each column:

  • Hand on Draw: Poker value of player hand after the draw.
  • Pays: What the hand pays per coin bet per hand (not counting the amount bet to enable the Powerhouse feature).
  • Bonus Multipliers: This is the number of multipliers earned per play bet for the given hand on the deal.
  • Combinations: The number of ways this hand could occur under optimal strategy.
  • Probability: Probability of this hand on the draw.
  • Average multiplier: This is the average number of hands per play with this outcome on the draw the player can expect to get.
  • Return: Contribution to the game return from this hand. The return is the product of the base win for the hand, probability, average final multipliers per hand played (including the original hand purchased), and 1/2. The reason for dividing by two is the bet is twice as large as conventional video poker per hand played.

The lower right cell shows the overall return, assuming optimal player strategy.

Strategy

The strategy is exactly the same as for the base game and pay table in conventional video poker.

Which Game Am I Playing?

Sometimes the odds will be different for the same game and pay table because the multiplier schedule will be different. To tell which schedule you're playing you will simply have to wait for certain hands to appear on the deal and count the multipliers in the bonus hands. Following is what to look for.

  • 6-5 Bonus Poker — If you get five bonus hands per play for a flush, you're playing "6-5 A." If you get four per play, then your playing "6-5 B."
  • 9-6-5 Double Bonus — If you get seven bonus hands per play for a full house, you're playing "9-6-5 A." If you get six per play, then your playing "9-6-5 B."
  • 20-12-10-4-4-3 Deuces Wild — If you get eight bonus hands per play for a wild royal or seven for a five of a kind, then you're playing "20-12-10-4-4-3 A." If you get seven bonus hands for a wild royal or six for a five of a kind, then you're playing "20-12-10-4-4-3 B."
  • 12-4-3-2 Bonus Deuces Wild — If you get three bonus hands per play for a full house, two for a flush, or two for a straight, then you're playing "12-4-3-2 A." Otherwise, if you get four bonus hands per play for a full house, three for a flush, or one for a straight, then you're playing "12-4-3-2 B."

Acknowledgements

I would like to thank Action Gaming/VideoPoker.com for the averages multipliers per hand on the draw. This information is not given in the rule screens of the game. What information is there, the number of hands and maximum multiplier, are not enough to quantify the average multiplier by hand on the draw and without that you can't calculate the return.
