We normally play $0.25 JOB or Bonus VP. Thinking about pooling $500 ($250 each) with a friend and doing 20 hands of $5 VP. Wishful thinking and highly unlikely on hitting the $20K royal, but just in case...... 1) Would the casino split the W2-G? No is my guess. 2) I assume the W2-G would be made out to whoever's player's card is in the machine. Will they make it out to my friend or only the players card in the machine? 3) What percent should be deducted from the other person's winnings who is not getting the W2-G? We are both in the 25% tax bracket for federal tax purposes. With deductions, exemptions, etc., we don't actually pay 25% effective rate. We also have to pay state taxes (Ohio). Is 20% fair? 4) Have never received a W2-G. Will they withhold taxes? 5) Just confirming that W2-Gs are only issued when you win $1,200 or more on one deal/spin correct? It will NOT be issued if we hit a few good hands and cash out for more than $1,200 after our 20 hands correct? 6) JOB or Bonus? I like the higher payouts on certain 4OAKs but since we are only doing 20 hands, should we stick with JOB and the 9-6 payouts on full house and flush. 7) Better to do this at Mlife or TR casino? No status at either - Gold at TR and Sapphire at Mlife. Leaning towards TR since I seem to get more free rooms from them even with my low rolling gambling. 8) Should we do high limit slots instead or is VP the better option? 9) Any other things to consider?
