When does the RNG determine the Deal/Draw?
9 Sept 2004
In a standard video poker machine like
IGT's Jacks or Better, how many RNG's are there and does an RNG
run between the initial 5-card deal and when you hit the draw
button? Does the time you wait to hit the draw button affect
your outcome? Are only your first 5 cards determined when you
hit deal and then the possible replacement cards determined
when you hit draw?
There is only one RNG needed in a video
poker machine. The RNG continues to run between the deal and the
draw. Each fraction of a second you wait to hit the draw button
does give you a different outcome. Video poker machines today
select five cards on the deal, continue "shuffling" the deck,
then select replacement cards on the draw.
Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
