Super Power Poker
Super Power Poker (Patent Pending. Copyright. All rights reserved) is a video poker variant played like a typical Jacks or Better game, but with a twist: the player may choose to wager a sixth credit which does not increase the paytable, but gives the player a 10% chance at the end of the hand to be awarded with a “super power” that provides a significant advantage for the next 2, 3 or 4 plays, provided the player continues to wager six credits.
The super powers are as follows:
Play begins with the player receiving six cards instead of the usual five, and after discarding, the player’s hand will be drawn to a total of five cards, as standard.
At the end of the hand, if the player’s hand may improve by changing the suit of one card (while maintaining the same rank), that card will change into the new suit, unless that card is already in the player’s hand.
At the end of the hand, if the player’s hand may improve by changing the rank of one card (while maintaining the same suit) up or down one rank, that card will change into the new rank, unless that card is already in the player’s hand.. Note that an ace may change “down” to a deuce, and a deuce may change “up” to an ace.
