Jacks or Better versus Bonus Poker Quiz III

1 October 2022
[An article promoting full-pay (8/5) Bonus Poker as a good alternative when full-pay (9/6)Jacks or Better cannot be found was recently posted here. The article stated that inaddition to a good return (99.17 versus 99.54 percent) and low variance, playingstrategy is also nearly identical.]I thought it might be interesting to explore playing strategy differences and similarities.This is the third of several strategy quizzes on the differences (or lack thereof) betweenthe strategy for various hands played on full-pay Jacks or Better and full-pay BonusPoker.All hands assume the maximum five credit bet.Let’s begin quiz number three.You are dealt this hand: As, Kh, Qd, Jd, 5c.This hand has only two reasonable holds: a four-card, ace-high straight (As, Kh, Qd,Jd) and two cards of a royal flush (Qd, Jd).What would you hold playing full-pay Jacks or Better?The holds in order of decreasing return are:? Qd, Jd – returns 3.0019 credits, on average, for the five credits bet.? As, Kh, Qd, Jd – returns 2.9787 credits, on average, for the five credits bet.Holding the two cards of a royal flush is the proper hold for Jacks or Better.Now let’s look at Bonus Poker.The holds in order of decreasing return are:? As, Kh, Qd, Jd – returns 2.9787 credits, on average, for the five credits bet.? Qd, Jd – returns 2.9463 credits, on average, for the five credits bet.Holding the four-card, ace-high straight is the proper hold for Bonus Poker.For this particular hand, the strategy is different between Jacks or Better and BonusPoker.While the difference in return appears to be fairly small, it does add up.Make sure you are comfortable with all the strategy differences before switching to a different game.As always, may all your wins be swift and large, and your losses be slow and small.Jerry “Stickman”Jerry “Stickman” is an expert in craps, blackjack and video poker and advantage slot machineplay...read more

Ask the Slot Expert: Casinos cash in on couch cushion change

28 September 2022
One outcome of the pandemic is that many consumers eschewed cash and switched to contactless payment methods. That and an increase in online sales led to a shortage of coins circulating in the economy. Instead of going into vending machines and cash register drawers, the dimes and quarters you've been collecting in a jar on your dresser stayed in that jar. Casinos dealt with the coin shortage by reprogramming their ticket redemption machines to dispense bills for the dollars on your ticket and print a ticket for the cents instead of dispensing coins...read more
