    Hello everyone!

    Does anyone know the most common pay tables for 25 cent Dueces Wild VP at MGM Properties? I am staying at Aria. I know at my level, full pay is out of the question but as I practice, I would like to use the same pay table as I will likely find so that I can play as accurately as possible.

    Thanks.

    someone else will speak better to this, but, pretty low all around MGM in my best recollection (IIRC??)....

    usually only 4 units for a 4OAK, which is what hurts the most, and sometimes as low as 13 units for 5OAK

    someone correct me if I am wrong...

    For MGM Properties, I would say a vast majority of Game Kings will be the "Colorado Deuces" paytable:
    4000/1000/125/80/65/20/15/10/10/5 = 96.77%

    This will likely be the best paytable you can find on a bartop at quarters as well. Aria has it, I think MGM and Monte Carlo might too (not sure though). Stay away from Mirage Sports Bar, they offer 94.82% plus progressive for 10-quarters bet. Most CET bars offer this terrible 94.82% version as well (80/65 becomes 75/50 in 94.82%).

    Basic Strategy: http://wizardofodds.com/games/video-poker/strategy/a-1-b-44-c-1-d-0-d-1-d-2-d-2-d-3-d-4-d-13-d-16-d-25-d-200-d-800/

    I would recommend not playing any game lower than this for quarters.

    You may be able to find a slightly better paytable if you look hard enough:
    4000/1000/100/60/50/20/20/15/10/5 = 97.58%

    Basic Strategy: http://wizardofodds.com/games/video-poker/strategy/a-1-b-44-c-1-d-0-d-1-d-2-d-3-d-4-d-4-d-10-d-12-d-20-d-200-d-800/

    I know this 97.58% paytable exists on at CET's Planet Hollywood's stand-alone Super Times Pay machines, not sure where else.

    And according to VPFree2, there are TWO "Airport Deuces" quarter machines in bank of 10 across from the poker room at Mandalay Bay. I would try to play this as much as possible. The same game also exists at Cosmo (again not MGM) for 100-play pennies (min. bet $1).

    4000/1000/125/75/45/20/20/15/10/5 = 98.91%

    Basic Strategy: http://wizardofodds.com/games/video-poker/strategy/a-1-b-44-c-1-d-0-d-1-d-2-d-3-d-4-d-4-d-9-d-15-d-25-d-200-d-800/

    The last two paytables are roughly similar in strategy. But the "Colorado Deuces" paytable is significantly different because full houses are only worth 15 and flushes are only worth 10. Like in "Full Pay deuces" you never hold 2 pair, and hold a pair over 4 to a flush in "Colorado Deuces". For the last two paytables, the full house is 20 and the flush is 15, so they play like "Not So Ugly Ducks" where you do hold 2 pair and 4 to a flush over a pair.

    This bank also has two machines with 25c 12/8 LDW (99.20%). They are in vpFREE2.com I've seen them myself.

    I hit a royal on that quarter loose deuce machine at Mandalay Bay in April. Look for the bank between the two rows of table games in front of the poker room. Select loose deuces from the machine that has a Deuce's Wild title plaque.
