|20090149243||Multi-level wager games with autocomplete - Multi-level wager games are described in which play at higher levels in the game continues even if the player does not achieve a winning result for play at a given level. Such play at the higher levels may be completed automatically in an autocomplete mode, without any additional player interaction. A payout is awarded if the outcome of play at any of the higher levels is a winning result in accordance with a special pay table designed for such autocomplete mode. In one embodiment, the special pay table is constructed such that the odds of obtaining a winning result in the autocomplete mode are less than the odds of obtaining a winning result for play at the first level. For example, in a two level poker game, if the player loses in the first level with only a pair of sixes (pair of Jacks or better needed for a winning hand in the first level), the cards in the second hand are revealed and the player obtains a winning result for second level hand only if the hand is dealt a Royal Flush.||06-11-2009|
