Where at one time the ultimate verdict on rules was 'according to Holye', today it is 'according to Scarne'. Finally, as are apparent in the following claims, the wild card position can be selected in several unique, interesting and entertaining ways. Therefore, it is an object of this invention to provide a uniquely entertaining variation of stud poker which offers a high level of player enjoyment and is extremely easy to learn.

Another object of this invention is to provide a comfortable forum for an unskilled player to play stud poker and to become knowledgeable about the game. Still another object of this invention is to provide a video poker game variation which assures a level of profitability for casinos which is equivalent to the currently produced family of draw poker video games. A final object of this invention is to create a game that is adaptable to both the video game and the table game environment. These and other objectives and advantages of this invention shall become apparent from the following descriptions.

Accordingly, the preferred embodiment described below is a casino video poker game wherein a player places his or her bet into the machine and pushes a button labeled DEAL. After this initial player action, the machine randomly determines which one of the players five card positions will be the wild card position. Through a display means the computer displays this position to the player. For example, card number three might be selected as the wild card position in a given hand.

Then the card dealt to the third position is the wild card for the hand, regardless of its value. After the wild card position is determined, the machine deals out the five cards, one at a time to each position. The card that appears in the pre-determined wild position appears with "WILD" inscribed on the upper right hand corner of the card. At this time, any previous cards of the same value will also immediately be inscribed with a "WILD" label. After which, any further cards that match the wild card value will automatically appears with the "WILD" label already inscribed.

The above process is highly entertaining to observe for skilled and unskilled players alike. Once the hand is dealt, the machine evaluates the hand rank according to Hoyle's ranking of poker hands. Upon evaluation, the player is paid according to a payoff table for winning hands. This payoff could be in credits or coins. At this point, the game is over. To begin a new game, the player places a new bet and again presses DEAL. A table game version unfolds in basically the same way. The players place their bets, and then the wild card position is determined.

The dealer then deals out each player's cards, and upon completion, evaluates each player's hand and pays each player according to a payoff table. A likely difference between the video and table versions is that the table version would very probably use a shoe containing several decks of cards like blackjack , whereas the video version would probably use one deck of cards and re-shuffle between each hand. Also, a multiple deck game offers players an opportunity to achieve a "five wild cards" winning hand which is not possible in a single deck game. Referring to FIG. This is accomplished by inserting coins or betting credits into the video poker machine.

The computer then reduces the player credits by the bet size 4, displays the bet size and five card backs on the screen 6 and highlights the appropriate column in the payoff table which is continuously displayed on the screen 8. As the table below shows, the payoff increases linearly as more coins or credits are bet by the player; although bonus payoffs or progressive jackpots are certainly also within the scope of this invention.

The table would be easy to tailor if state law, for example, required lower payoff percents, since returning the player's bet for "Three Sevens Or Better" would subtract about two percent from the overall return. Moving up to "Three Eights Or Better" would subtract another two percent, etc.

After the player presses a "DEAL" button 10, the machine then randomizes the card deck 12 and selects five cards from the deck The machine then randomly selects which one of the five cards, by position, will be the wild card position Once determined, a brightly colored frame with the word "WILD" inscribed in the frame appears around the wild card position The computer then checks to determine if the first card position is the wild card position If it is the wild card position, the word "WILD" is displayed on the card in the upper right corner 24 and the machine then proceeds to display the second card on the screen If the first card position is not the wild card position, the computer proceeds to display the second card on the screen If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on the second card 30 and the first card is checked to determine if it matches the wild card value If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on the first card The machine now displays the third card on the screen If the second card is not the wild card position 28, the computer checks to determine if the first card position is the wild card position If this is true, the second card is checked to determine if it matches the wild card value If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on the second card 36 and the machine then displays the third card If the check of the first card position determines it is not the wild card position 32; or first card position is the wild card position but the second card does not match the wild card value 34, then the machine proceeds to display the third card on the screen If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on the third card 46 and the previous cards are checked to determine if any of them match the wild card value If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on those cards determined to be wild The machine now displays the fourth card on the screen If the third card is not the wild card position 44, the computer checks to determine if any of the previous card positions are the wild card position If this is true, the third card is checked to determine if it matches the wild card value If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on the third card If the check of the previous cards determines none of them to be the wild card position 48; or one of the previous card positions is the wild card position but the third card does not match the wild card value 54; then the machine proceeds to display the fourth card on the screen If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on the fourth card 62 and the previous cards are checked to determine if any of them match the wild card value The machine now displays the fifth card on the screen If the fourth card is not the wild card position 60, the computer checks to determine if any of the previous card positions are the wild card position If this is true, the fourth card is checked to determine if it matches the wild card value If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on the fourth card If the check of the previous cards determines none of them to be the wild card position 64; or one of the previous card positions is the wild card position but the fourth card does not match the wild card value 66; then the machine proceeds to display the fifth card on the screen If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on the fifth card 78 and the previous cards are checked to determine if any of them match the wild card value If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on those previous cards The machine now tabulates the number of wild cards in the hand If the fifth card is not the wild card position 76, it is checked to determine if it matches the wild card value If this is true, the word "WILD" is displayed on the fifth card If the fifth card does not match the wild card value 82, then the machine proceeds to tabulate the number of wild cards in the hand Then the highest ranking of the winning hands is selected for payoff The rank of this hand is displayed on the screen The payoff is then determined from the payoff table 98 stored in the computer's memory, using the bet value 2 and the hand rank 94 as indices to the table.

The payoff message is displayed on the screen and the payoff table on the screen is highlighted appropriately Effective date : An improved stud poker game which requires no decisions from the player after the initial bet is placed. Each hand has one guaranteed wild card that appears at a card position which is predetermined, and shown to the player, before the player's cards are dealt. In addition to the one guaranteed wild card, all like-valued cards in the hand are also wild. Also, there are a number of novel and entertaining ways to determine the wild card position.
