Standard 9/6 Jacks or Better video poker

Controls should hopefully be straightforward (directional buttons and primary action button, e.g. Z), with the following notes:
-Press up to scroll up to the pay table above the play area.
-Secret quick-draw feature: After holding, you may press the secondary action button (e.g. X) to instantly "draw"

Note: This game makes use of audio/video synchronization (particularly in the intro) that seems to not work very well on the web version (on my computer at least; maybe you will have better results) and it looks/sounds way better if you run it in the native PICO-8 client.

Good luck :)

EDIT 2015-06-11: Updated for PICO-8 0.1.1 compatibility
EDIT 2017-06-16: Fixed coin-count display bug, adjusted several sfx volumes to avoid distortion

Great work! I wish I could bet more than 5. I think you could make the game more "fun" by making it less random and spoon feed the player wins. I'm certain that's how gambling games do it on mobile devices.

Thanks! Haha yeah, that may well be more fun. I wanted to go the route of authenticity though, so I did some research on how the real machines do it; apparently 1 - 5 betting is typical, with 5 having a bonus for royal flush. Except each "1" is 25 cents or $1 or something, depending on the machine, but I thought it would be more appropriate/cute to be more "pico" with the amount and make it just 1 "coin" :)

Beautifully crafted. I love the arrangement of Desafinado with the little high-pitched rim hit (or whatever that is).

I had to make the audio mixing buffer quite long for the web version in order to avoid choppy sound on some machines, so it's hard to do anything reliably with audio syncing :(

I found that it always deals five spade 2 cards.
It doesn't happen on the native pico-8.
Maybe there is a bug in the web player?

By the way, the game is great. I love the warm sound.

Thanks! Yeah I was happy that it worked with that as the entire percussion section since the rhythm is so important in bossa nova. I think the fact that such a minimal arrangement still works is a testament to the brilliance of the original composition :)

I haven't experienced that myself...what exactly does it do in the web client? Deal you five duplicates of the same card? I'm not sure I understand what you wrote.

Thanks :)

When I play right now in Chrome on OSX every single card dealt is the two of spades. I gather that's not the expected behaviour, but it seems to match what oinariman describes.

Is it possible that the web player has been updated and fixed the bug with the # operator? I think that would explain it. If I run the native player and change the SHL amount from 16 to 32 I get the same results - everything is the 2 of spades. I guess you could work around it by doing something like DECKSIZE=SHL(#DECK,#{1}==1 AND 0 OR 16). (That's as short as I can think of. You might need to scavenge bytes from elsewhere.)

Ohhh yeah that would explain it. And I was seeing the cached version of the web player (doing a hard refresh shows the bug now). But yeah I have no space left in the cartridge so I guess I'll wait until the (hopefully soon) full release of v0.1.1 and then remove that # operator bug workaround.

EDIT: Thanks for the help figuring this out! :)

EDIT 2: New version for PICO-8 v0.1.1 is up

Lovely game.

If only I could hook up a machine running PICO-8 that would accept tokens.

Fantastic work. This whymsical casino atmosphere is the best. All the music work you did goes a great length of making this a believable experience.

I'm cashing out on a win. I'll take my 74 coins in text form, please. =)

Also, excellent work on the authenticity. I've been to vegas, and this is basically an exact replica of the machines they have there, right down to the sound themes. Really nice job.

I've always been a fan of Video Poker and this is really well done, congrats! :D

Love it. Been playing poker games in many platforms.
Also, will there be save feature in the future (+option to reset it)? Would be nice to keep the current coin for the next time.

@NeithR oh yeah that's a good idea! I don't think persistent data even existed in PICO-8 when I first made this, or I probably would have used it. Although I was out of code space 'cause the limit was much lower back then! My, how things have changed :)

I will probably issue another update soon then. Thanks for the idea :)

Kittenm4ster you've done a winner here! I ended off on a Full House win. Wonderful sound, and graphics! Heart'd, Star'd, and DL'd for play on my PC~!
