    I browsed the honors section of the awards today and found a new honor called "Highs and Lows" under the casino tab and when you hover over it, it says†"Achieve a win-streak of 25 in High-Low (Extremely Rare)"

    I think it will be difficult to get this honor (like Stock Analyst, Spaced Out etc) as a streak of 25 is huge, you only have 75 casino tokens (150 with refill but even then it is still tough) and you never really know when you'll get it. However, it doesn't state any money bets so I assume you can do it with any money (between $5- 100k per bet)

    Personally, I think it was created to let the tokens have a purpose and also to get as many people use their points to refill tokens as a money sink. Also I think more people might flock to the Cruise Line companies since all three of the specials would be useful.†

    What are your thoughts?

    A streak of 25 wins was the max in high-low wasn't it? †If so then the award sounds perfectly appropriate to me.

    †Yeah I tried it a few times just now and my best streak was 12. The cards seem to trick you (ie I bet higher on a 4 and it ended up lower for example!). Also, I think the cards are independent since it†shuffles after every hand and so your card doesn't become the new dealers card or vice versa in general.

    CURRENT POT:
    $1,375
    (21 wins in a row)

    I did fail after that... but DOH! shoulda bet more.

    Anywho, not an impossible honor to get, but it helps if you are feeling lucky.

    Why does the modifier go down as you play? It started at 35% but went down 1% at a time till 32%†by the end of 75 tokens
    misstress

    Sarcasm is the human body's natural defense against stupid. Scientific fact.

    Yeah I've noticed the modifier go down too, so it definitely isn't just you.

    I think the number of hands played before shuffling varies for everyone and I assume within the same shuffle, the previous cards (rank and suit) won't come up again. Using that fact, maybe you can eliminate cards that already have come up to try and predict what might come up? I'm not completely sure about this though

    And congrats to the people who earnt the honor :D

    †From the announcement.

    "The modifier percent will adjust regularly to keep the balance†of money entering and leaving Torn."

    As people win it goes down. If more money is put into the game it will go down. If people lose it goes up. Looks like it might keep dropping as more people are not playing high cash amounts and losing.

    I think it is better than slots or keno. If you bet $10 million and win 4-5 guesses in a row that should put you at a $30 million profit. Just cash out and do not get too greedy and you can win a decent amount.
