Triple Play Video Poker

One of many variations on the game, Triple Play Video Poker (or sometimes just called Triple Play Poker) simply allows players to play three hands at the same time and put as many as five coins on each hand. You're shown three poker hands, two covered, one face up. The covered hands are exactly the same as your visible hand, and when you choose a card to hold from your hand, the same card will be uncovered on the other cards. When you have fully discarded and you draw, each hand gets different cards (from different decks). You are then paid off on each individual hand.

You can find many classic games such as Jacks or Better offered as a triple play video poker variation, but it's hard to find them as proper full pay machines. Since things are basically the same, you can use the same strategy as a single-play version of the same game, the triple-play just let's you play at a faster rate.

The expected return doesn't change for triple play video poker, so feel free to play them, but don't choose one that's not full-pay over a single-play full-pay machine of the same variety.

The tripling has the added effect of making your game much more volatile. This means you'll have good streaks and bad steaks, where the good is really good, and the bad is really bad. High volatility means you'd need a very big bankroll to weather the storm, and come out ahead at the end. As with every advantage game, you don't know when exactly that advantage will help you out.

Whether or not you choose to use these machines comes down to your bankroll style, how big it is, and how much up and down you can take mentally.
