The minus proof bonus even with the right strategy

This past week, I went to a local casino and had the worst video poker session I’ve had in years. I played the Double Double Bonus on the Multi-Strike machine and I had no luck from start to finish.

To win at Double Double, you must earn Bonus Quads. To win in Multi-Strike, you’ll need your Four of a Kinds to appear at a higher level. Well, I certainly don’t get much of a Four of a Kind Bonus and the little I get on Quads is in the bottom two tiers for the most part.

To add to my woes, it looks like I’ve gotten more than 4-Card Straight and 4-Card Flushes and can’t turn many of them into paying hands. Looks like I didn’t get enough Tall Pairs either. In Multi-Strike visit the dewa poker, where you have to have a winning hand to move up the ladder, those High Pairs are the key to going up.

There is no doubt that winning in one session adds to one’s entertainment value. But, I had a light loss session where I found I was getting my money’s worth in pleasure. I also had winning sessions where I didn’t have fun, but it worked out in the end. Today is the worst in both worlds. It wasn’t very fun and I was devastated.
