# Super Times Pay Wheel Poker

## Introduction

Super Times Pay Wheel Poker is a video poker variant that awards random multipliers and wheel spins. The price for this is the player must double his bet, with the additional wager paying for the features.

## Rules

1. The rules are based on standard video poker, which I assume the reader is familiar with.
2. The game is based on a multi-play platform, in 3-, 5- and 10-play.
3. If the player bets one to five coins per play, then the game plays like conventional multi-play video poker.
4. If the player bets ten coins per play, then wins are based on five coins per play, with the additional five coins per play going towards the feature.
5. If the feature is paid for, then randomly, with a specified probability, the game will award a multiplier on all plays. Multipliers are awarded on the deal.
6. In addition, with a specified probability, a wheel spin is awarded on the deal. The spin takes place after the draw.
7. The probabilities of both bonus features, average multiplier and average wheel win prize are shown in the table below.

## Example

In the image above, I won an 8x multiplier.  After the draw, I had four high pairs, one three of a kind and one flush.  Normally, this would have paid 4*5 + 15 + 25 = 60.  However, with the 8x multiplier, my win was 8*60 = 480.

In the image above I won a wheel spin.  My win was 600 credits.

## Return

I only know the top pay tables as shown at VideoPoker.com. Other more stingy pay tables are also available. The following table shows the most liberal pay tables available as well as the associated bonus probabilities, average multipliers and average wheel spin awards.

## Strategy

The strategy is the same as for the same game and pay table. This is because the bonuses are awarded randomly, as opposed to earning any particular hand.
