    That re-draw reached new levels of suckyness, especially since a 4 popped up on hand number 7.

    Really off topic but major dissapointment tonight. Off by 2 numbers from 1 million

    I don't get shit for match 5 numbers because this is a special draw that I need to match all 7

    Don't want to create a lotto thread for this lol [​IMG][​IMG]

    This was my disappointment last week at Excalibur. Though very typical luck for me. 6A389BEB-8F15-453C-B7BF-B24298D75ACE.jpeg 03042A23-E6BD-4891-90B7-AD9E29780C6D.jpeg

    Damn close to that dealt Royal. :(

    I've never converted a draw like that either. One time I had to break a wild royal worth 100 on Deuces to go for it too because the natural royal was 5600 credits. Yeah, bricked all three of those too. Bah.

    Makes you wonder what would have happened if you held the 3. Which BTW, is there a correct strategy for which kicker card you should hold
    on these draws? I noticed a lot of people hold the deuce over 3 or 4. I'd be curious of the statistical results of board members holding kickers on TDB.

    Should not make a difference, but I defer to Tring.

    When multiple kickers exist, long term results should be the same in regular TDB regardless of which kicker is held.

    Now if you were playing Quick Quads...4443, 444A > 4442.

    In this example though, the 3 came after the draw, AAA2 probably was the only kicker hold anyway.

    I don’t think it matters. Either way the kicker you toss if a penalty card. Still same number of kickers left in the deck no matter which one you pick.

    I always hold an ace kicker over a 2, 3 or 4. Otherwise, if there is one, I hold the kicker on the end (so the quad will be together). If both are in the middle, I pick the lower rank (closer to an ace). So on SDDB, with trip faces, I hold the higher rank kicker instead. In all cases, if I miss a few draws in a row, I'll switch and do the opposite... so I guess what I'm saying is I just pick at random.

    As noted, the 3 wasn't there so no decision to be made.... however I always hold the ace kicker and generally the low card kicker past that... even if I know it doesn't make any difference.

    I haven't posted here in awhile, but I had a couple of doozies last night.

    My very first hand at 9/6 Triple Triple Bonus (99.75%) last night. Even better than four to a Royal! :( I also held 44A and missed. Lol

    [​IMG]

    Screwing around at 10/6 Straight Flush Deluxe (99.12%). Why couldn't you have been the King of Spades!!!
