I am knowledgable about the play, pay tables, payback, and variations of video poker in casinos. I've wanted to design a new variation and think I have an idea worth working on. Anyone else been down this road?

Cool! Are you thinking of selling your idea to ITG? They seem to be the major force in video poker, at least in Nevada.

Assume you mean IGT (Int'l Game Technology). Yes, they've been the mover & shaker in both slots (starting with Wheel of Fortune where they invented the bonus round) and video poker (when they invented playing multiple hands at a time from one base hand).

That would be the dream, yes.

Oops—yeah, I meant IGT. I totally grooved out when Triple Play video poker appeared. (Once I discovered a 6/9 nickel Triple Play machine at the Main Street Station in downtown LV and pretty much sat there for three days; got dealt a royal flush!)

On some of the IGT multi-hand games, I recall that there's a note that the multi-hand technology was licensed from a company called Action Gaming.
