When does the RNG determine the Deal/Draw?
By John Robison, 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,
