Cherry advertises 100.76% payout on their deuces wild VP machine: Link Removed (invalid URL)

Cherrys paytable (5 coins):

Natural Royal: 4000
4 deuces: 1000
Wild straight flush: 100
5 of a kind: 75
Straight Flush: 45
Four of a Kind: 20
Full House: 20
Flush: 15
Straight: 10
3 of a kind: 5

8th table from the top, 97.97% payout, is the exact same as cherrys paytable. This is a 2.79% difference from the advertised payout.

I'm aware that I have few posts on this forum, but I believe my analysis is correct.

Thoughts?

Well caught. Maybe Bryan could take it up with Cherry, since this is not the sort of thing we expect from an accredited casino.

I shot them off an email as soon as I saw it, I'm hoping it is not inappropriate to also post here?

What kind of recourse is there if they refuse to change their advertising? I took screenshots of both the ad and the paytable, not sure if this means anything in the long run or not.

I don't believe there's any recourse. While that kind of thing might be a big deal in a land-based casino, in the virtual world, it's small potatos. :(

You did the right thing in pointing it out. Hopefully just posting about it here will get their attention.

Personally, I think false advertising sucks. It's not different from offering a $5 lunch special on the menu, and then charging $9.95 when the bill comes. Except at the casino, you can't not pay, because they already got your money.

I doubt this was intentional deception. Looks like someone just screwed up. They're well known to be reputable. And surely no one there would think that this would go unnoticed. Hence, it's probably just a screw up.

But either way, if they fix it and do offer full pay, it won't last long. They can't offer full pay without getting clobbered.

btw, nice to see they now have Double Bonus. It's the same pay table as Crypto. Love getting 800 on quad aces. It's always good to see more video poker games. The more the merrier. Would like to see Pick'em. Fun game.

I really do like their Flash video poker. It's really smooth and fast. :thumbsup:

Looking at Cherry's site now, July 4th, and they've finally taken down the remarks about "100.76% deuces wild".

lol

Just goes to show you. The people running these places don't always know wtf they're talking about. (Of course, that goes for me too. :D)

Anyway, full pay deuces wild? I knew it was too good to be true. :rolleyes: Still, though, Cherry Casino is one of the best casinos in cyber space. Obviously one of the good guys. :thumbsup:

They gave me a $15 50x bonus for reporting it to them. Probably still small change in comparison to the number of people that played it because they saw the "100.76% payout" ad.

They can't even offer full pay Jacks or Better (or any other good video poker games).

To me that puts them middle of the pack at best.

They can keep their $30 bonus too.

Dont forget their JorB pays 4/1 the straight,compensating for the 19/1 & 39/1
4/kind & straight flush.

According to the Wiz's vp calculator, J or B at Cherry Casino pays approximately 99.5%, which makes it full pay.

That's right. Their JoB is actually BETTER than regular full pay JoB. (not worse, Soflat) However, there are a few strategy adjustments you'd need to make.

And as I mentioned, they have 9/7 Double Bonus now, which is the same pay table as Cryptos offer. So if you like that game, it's there too.

Rick from Cherry back, sorry it took me so long to catch this thread.

Indeed it was just a mistake, one I made personally, and I'm very sorry for it. We are not a casino who set out to intentionally mislead people, and the moment we found out about the error we set out to remove any reference to the full-pay payout we could find.

Please know I have tons of respect for Casinomeister and the community here, hopefully you'll take my word for it that this was purely an accident and nothing more. I assure you the research level has been upped for future copywriting exercises. ;)

Cheers,
Rick @ Cherry
