Just got back from Vegas and had never played it before, but I can't see playing regular single hand VP ever again as long as I can find a 100 hand machine. I started playing just 1 cent a hand, but then went up to 5 cents (so $5 a bet) and it was crazy fun - but really shows you how rare getting a royal flush is. One session I played for probably two hours straight and ended up about $300 - never got a royal or straight flush on my dealt hand (a couple four of a kind), but did pull 6 royals when dealt King through 10 of hearts (dropped a jack). Playing that fast, $5 a hand seemed like a lot, but you pretty much always get back about $1.80, so it's really a $3.20 a hand game, in my opinion. Love the feeling of getting dealt three of a kind or two pair and cashing in on 100 hands.
