Casino scoring question

Recommended Posts

I was playing the game Casino for the Atari 2600, and I checked the instruction manual for scoring with game 4. I cannot find anyway possible to generate the score they indicate. Is this a typo? The highest score I can calculate is 3,220 with only 1 straight. I do not see how the 2nd straight is possible. Thoughts?

Sorry...I realized my mistake on the drive home. 3,340 is the highest after all!

What is the layout of the maximum score?  I'm to lazy to think it through.

Alright, now I'm really frustrated. I tried to put it down on paper for you, and I am back to 3,220 as the max! I find no way to generate the max score as stated in the instructions. I don't know what I was thinking on the ride home...must have been cheating!

I can't see how to make the 2nd straight either.

This is weird.

 

On the cable system here, we have some interactive games available. One of these games is called "Deal With It", and is basically Poker Solitaire. The only difference is, a royal flush is worth 450 instead of 500, there are two "discard" slots, and there is one card per matrix that is treated as a "double" card that doubles the value of all hands that use that card. This version of the game tracks the high score for the nation, and for the city that you're in. Guess what the national high score is?

 

3340.

The center card is a nine. The rest should be obvious.
