Quick Quads

Quick Quads is not a Video Poker game in itself but rather a variation on the standard Video Poker format has been applied to some games. The difference between Quick Quads and the standard version of the game is that the player can choose to play a 6th coin. When playing a 6th coin if the player receives 3 of a Kind and the remaining 2 cards sum to the rank of the 3 of a Kind, the hand pays as 4 of a Kind. For example, if you received 55523 as the 2 and the 3 sum to 5 this hand would pay as 4 of a Kind.

It should be noted that when not playing the 6th coin the above example would pay as 3 of a Kind.

On top of the above, the Quick Quads games we’ve seen all have an increased payout for 4 of a Kind when playing 6 coins.

Presently we’re not aware of this game being available at any online casinos.

The variations of this game that we’re aware of offline (all produced by IGT) are Jacks or Better, Bonus Poker, Double Bonus, Double Double Bonus, Triple Double Bonus, Triple Bonus Plus

For ease of comparison, the below table displays the best House Edge for all the Quick Quad variants we are aware of;

Variant6 coins House Edge
Bonus Poker0.45%
Double Bonus0.45%

Some notes on the tables below;

– We’ve included both the 6 coin House Edge and the House Edge when playing 1-5 coins. The House Edge for 1-5 coins are the same and as such only one figure is listed. To find the house edge/paytable for 2-4 coins just multiple the 1 coin figure by the number of coins.
