super times pay video poker
Super Times Pay is a video poker variant played in certain casinos. If you bet a sixth coin, the earnings are sometimes multiplied. As a result, your earnings are significantly higher than in other games.
With increasing popularity, the variety in video poker is also expanding. Over the last few years, we have seen several new variants introduced to enhance the excitement quotient of video poker. Super Times Pay is one such unique variant introduced recently.
The multiplier in this game functions randomly and it has been observed that it is usually applied once in 15 games. The average multiplier observed is 4.05. Hence, the average earning, after the multiplier is applied, is around 20.33% more than regular games. Hence, players would want to wager the 6th coin whenever required.
The game is played like other video poker games, except the fact that you would receive an additional credit bet for each hand. The base paytable for the wager will, however, be the same. Usually, the multiplier can increase your earnings from 2 to 10 times.
To qualify for the Super Times Pay Multiplier, players need to wager 6 credits for each hand. The wins are automatically multiplied once the multiplier is applied. However, you must note that the multiplier would not assure a winning hand. All it does is increase your earnings if you have a winning hand. A sample earning in Super Times Pay is shown below.

Super Times Pay is played like other video poker games. You will be dealt 5 cards from a 52-card deck by the dealer or the machine. You can choose to keep or discard any of the cards or all of them. And, you would get a replacement card for the cards you discard. The payout is made after the machine indicates a winning hand on the video screen. However, in some casinos, the machine may not indicate a winning hand and you would need to figure it out yourself. The hands are played based on their corresponding payouts displayed on your screen. You would want to find out the pay line of the winning cards before you start playing.
When you have decided which cards to discard and which ones to keep, you have to press the ‘hold’ button on the video screen, followed by the ‘draw’ button. In certain cases, the hold and draw buttons are combined. When you have pressed the draw button, you will receive your payout if you have a winning hand.
The betting is done with a minimum of 1 coin and a maximum of 5 coins. Players who look to make the maximum winnings usually bet with the maximum of 5 coins. The payouts for a winning hand will vary depending on the number of coins you have bet.
