I did get board and played Double Super Times pay for a little bit. They had it at the $0.25 level. I hit 4x3's w/ a kicker on a 5X multiplier for 1K. So that helped a bit...
Nice hit on the STP!

If I were you I would go accross the street from Rio and check out Palms. They have much better pay tables, slot club, restraunts and hotel ammenities too.

Re: Thread about video poker

Yep not much on the strip. With you on the boycott Fergie or not giving any gaming action. Hotel stay or hangin out is fine.

Next trip in Vegas I most likely will stay at Arizona Charlies because of players card I frequently use in Laughlin(Aquarius). Will have to check out the Palms Fergie, thx.

Rio I plan on playing VP at next time I take a trip where I am really going to play more money than I had budgeted for this trip. Problem with Palms, I want to make 7 Stars this year. More than half way there now.. Maybe after I hit 7 Stars and I am stuck playing in Vegas I will go to Palms and bonus whore a bit...

Going to vegas AGAIN this week, (third week in a row). This time I am staying at Paris. Not planning on playing much, and don't think the games will be much different.

You're welcome.

As far as the quasi boycott, that is all it will ever be since my wife likes to stay on the strip so she can go wandering and sight seeing while I degen it up. We agreed to compromise and book two nights at Palms and two nights at either Cosmo or Aria the next time we are in town. Which brings me to my next point...

I am sooooo jealous of all of you who get to go to Vegas like twice a month! My ****ty job has me scheduled to work 5 out of 6 weekends and forced in on the one Im supposed to have off most of the time. So I will be lucky to get back before September.

Re: Thread about video poker

I have been going to vegas lately for business... Unfortunately, only time I had to play was in the middle of the night.

Any good places to play VP near you?

I used to go to vegas two / three times a month before I discovered Harrah's Rincon which is about 100 miles from me. (Vegas is 240).

At least when you get to go you can enjoy it!!

Re: Thread about video poker

Unfortunately, there is no decent vp available in Minnesota. They made a law that no game can return more than 98%.

There is one casino that has 4 different progressive banks, so that one has the potential to be playable once in a while. Ofcourse, it is also twice as far away as two others in the metro area.

It must be a cruel form of torture having to work in Vegas! I am pretty sure I would be almost worthless with my mind wandering all day thinking about what I will be doing after work.

Re: Thread about video poker

I just got two sweet lookin promos in the mail...

One at harrahs laughlin. Requires 3 night stay.

Play friday earn 3x multiplier in video poker
Play saturday earn 5x multiplier in video poker
Play sunday get 10x multiplier in video poker

Multiplier on reward credits that is... I never played vp in laughlin so have no idea what the pay tables are, but it is tempting... Its in the end of july

The other promo is at any harrahs in vegas (will do this at rio) in august.

2500 tier points for the weekend get a digital camera or something else
5000 get a sling box system, dell convertible tablet laptop or something else
10,000 get a lg 50" slim lcd tv
20k get a 70" pimp ass tv

I know i can swing the 50" if i grind a good returning $1 or $2 bonus / jacks or better game. Should only be 10 hours of play fr me at $2. I need a new tv

But since im there for the weekend, i would grind $1,... Sooooo tempting

Re: Thread about video poker

Damn! That last offer esp is VERY nice.

How does Harrahs award points?

I would try to find a 10 line .25 JoB with the best pay table I could and grind that. I ran up 80,000 points at Palms in 2 days that way.

http://http://www.vpfree2.com/casino...acks-or-better

It looks like the Rio is ranked #54 in Vegas for vp. Be careful trying for that TV!

Re: Thread about video poker

1 point = $10 through the machine playing Video Poker
1 point = $5 through a slot

10 line JOB at $0.25 would be 1.25 points a push... The JOB I saw when I was at Caesars was 8/5 or even 7/5!

I know Rio has full pay Super Aces Bonus and some Dueces Wild, so I hope they have a full pay Bonus poker game.

Caesars has 7/5 Bonus...

well see, IF I go Ill spend some time looking around. Doesn't matter where I play as long as it is at a Caesars property.

To get the 10K TV, I would have to put $100,000 through a machine. My best single day was 8,000 points, but I was playing $5 8/5 Bonus, and really only for a few hours (8,000 points at $5 level is only 3200 hands). At this time, I do not have the BR for $5.

If I could find a good playing multi line game like you found at the palms (10 line 9/6 JOB LUCKY!)... then for sure I will be playing that...

Re: Thread about video poker

Its 3x pts right now until the end of June. 5,000 pts gets $25 cash back. Would like to play .50 JoB. But may have to play .25 if not returning well.

Thats crazy how many pts. you guys rack up. I guess different each place tho. I remember 2500 pts. was a lot for me in one day. But .25 single play

Re: Thread about video poker

How much coin through do you have to do for 4,000 points?

where is that at Skyrock?

Caesars Properties, $10 through a video poker machine gets you 1 base credit (tier score point) (depending on the property it may yeld more reward credits (comp dollars).

Re: Thread about video poker

For $4 played =1pt for the 100% payback machines and $2 =1pt on the others. So I guess I need to play at least 20K for 5,000 pts? Or consider the 99.54 JoB for the $2 per pt. This is at the Aquarius.

Oh yeah, 3x pts. duh, so hopefully 1/3 less play.

The tier pts im way confused. Im at tier 1 and just hope I get bumped up eventually. They evaluate every 4 months.

The other properties are Stratosphere and Arizona Charlies.

Re: Thread about video poker

Never played at the Strat / Az Charlies and I am not familiar with their slot programs... but sounds cool!

5,000 points gets $25 cash back huh?

So if your playing 9/6 JoB (99.54), you need to put $10,000 through the machine? So thats .0025% cash back....

Harrah's Rincon... any VP game $10 gets 1 point... 500 points = $5,000 gets you $5 cash back the following month... Thats .001% cash back... but it is not instant....

Gosh I wish I wasn't so hung up on trying to get 7 Stars this year and play for some better bonus's...

I need to start looking elsewhere as soon as I hit 100,000 Tier points!!!

Re: Thread about video poker

Ok cool thx for the math on that. I might have time and money to play one night or two during that promotion.

Yeah, you might as well go for the 100,000
I know you mentioned you were more than halfway there!

No I need to find good Video Poker destination in Vegas for Caesars Entertainment.

Although, I may play at the Palm's my next vegas trip if I can find games like that.
I have some bad news. The 10 line FP JOB at the Palms has been set to play super slow just like their FPDW progressive bank.

The M wasnt making enough money off of the FranknBobs monster progressive banks so they lowered the basic paytables another 1%. They were a bad idea to play before if you were not a well rolled local, now they are suicide.

Oh, and to top it all off....Frank is leaving the Gambling with an Edge radio show.

I am done trying to play serious vp. Its just too damned hard to find an edge these days. Especially if you dont live in Vegas.

There is only one game where you can expect to win if you work hard and thats poker. I just plugged my biggest leak.

Re: Thread about video poker

where did you hear frank is leaving? Is there going to be a replacement or is it just going to be Bob? I much prefer Frank except when he laughs

I missed the show last week so if that is where he said he was leaving I will hear about it right now as I am listening the rebroadcast.

Is it just me or did it sounds like there was some ill will between frank and bob when they were talking about him leaving the show. It seemed like it was an uncomfortable moment.

Re: Thread about video poker

I did not get that impression.

I think it is likely that Frank really did not plan on doing the show long term like he stated. If I had to guess though, I would say his departure may have had something to do with his being upset with the M already messing with the new progressive banks, or maybe unfavorable player reaction to them.

Whatever his reasons for leaving though, it is truly a shame. I really like Frank, he has a great sense of humor in addition to being the most knowledgeable vp pro out there. Then there is the added bonus that he actually cares about people and goes out of his way to help them whenever he can.

He will be sorely missed.

Re: Thread about video poker

I was at my local casino Pittsburgh last night. My wife and I were playing blackjack. We each sat with $120 at a $5 table and after 3 hours I go busto. My wife is sitting on approx $200 so of course she is not ready to go so while she was playing I walked over to listen to the band and on my way over I decided to put a $50 in a the progressive double double machine and on my 3rd spin I got the AAAA progressive. It was only $250 but I was pretty excited since in my 2 months of playing VP this was my largest single hit score. Next hopefully I will get a royal.

nice, i am jealous. I would love to hit a royal. I generally only take about 250 with me for blackjack/slots/VP so a royal on my bankroll would be huge.

Re: Thread about video poker

well, you never know!

I was playing $0.50 Double Double Bonus. I only had $500 to play last night. I hit toward the end of my last $100

I once hit a $1 DDB Royal Progressive on my first $100 in the machine!

So you really never know...

I am pretty sure that machine was a progressive. His total was something weird like 670,800.68 instead of 400k which it would have been on a normal pay machine and it was a 5/8 game so even with the progressive it was barely +ev
