The great advantage is that draw one, Vegas rules, only lets you go through the deck once. Draw three, three times. This egg allows you to get the benefit of one card drawing, yet go through the deck three times! Also, you don't have to hold the keys down all the time: Click normally to draw three cards. You can see them all. Only if you see one of the other two that you want do you undo and use the keys to turn them one at a time.

Umm..I hate to break this to you, but you don't need to type in anything. Just hold control, alt. shift. I don't see how you got xyzzy out of that.
