VP that play muliple hands at once

I'm assuming this may be a dumb question but here goes anyway.. I have seen these in the casinos and would like to play them but dont know how-? Could someone explain how these work?

They are really easy to plan. There different number of lines on different machines. First you pick the number of lines and what game. Then using the keys, you pick how many coins on each line. After that is it the same as any other video poker. You are dealt 5 cards on the first line. Save the cards you wants. Hit the deal key and all the lines use the kept cards as their bases.

Hmmm... looking back, I am not sure I explained it well. Oh well, maybe someone else can do better.

You did just fine, now can you explain the blue line in hockey? Or how to keep score in bowling?

So you can play 3 coins on one line and 2 coins on another line?

Queen,

No, the number of coins must be the same for all the lines you play. Depending on the machine it will allow you to play 100 lines at a time. In order to make your money last on one of these, I HIGHLY recommend that you check each hand individually to make sure the computer paid you properly. ;-)

So say you're playing $1 machine-on this type of machine w/ 100 lines thats 100 bucks a play? Or am I missing the boat here? Sorry for the ignorance....!!

You're on the boat, grab an oar and start paddling. I don't know if they come in Dollar versions. I know they come in the penny variety, so if you play 100 lines at 1 penny per line it's $1 per play. Or at 100 lines $.50 per line $50 per play.

I dont think I've seen machines w/ that many lines-but I think I've seen maybe like 9 or 12 lines-so if its a .25 machine then it would be 3 bucks a play-that makes more sense I think. Thanks for the insight VM...

Vegas4,

These machines are all over. Just have to look for the Multi-Hand machines.

Assume you have 4 strikes in a row.

Then the numbers come up 30 on the first, 60 on the next, and then add 12,000 on whatever comes up on the next ball and my head hurts.

Just don't cross over the blue line or you'll get the dreaded "UNGGGGG" which cancels out all of your previous scores.

p.s. Bowling alleys at Sam's Town and Orleans.

Doan know about curling.
