    I might be staying at the Bellagio and Looked through some VP threads, Did not see much on the Bellagio Bar Tops, Any recomendations I know the paytables probably suck, so I was hoping for excellent drink service to even it out.

    I played VP at the Bellagio Sports & Race Book bartops quite a bit last week. Cedric & Brian were working the day shift and are very nice, attentive bartenders. I think DDB $1 games were 9/5, quarters paid at 8/5. Good luck!

    I think 7/5 bonus is the best game they have at the baccarat bar tops. They have 1,2 and $5 denomination and a progressive on all of them. Drinks are high quality and service is superb.

    I switched my upcoming trip from PH to Bellagio in part because (I think) the VP conditions are better there, now that CET has gutted its paytables.

    Here's vpfree2 on Bellagio:

    I'm hoping that the report of quarter 9/5 JoB at the Sportsbook Bar is accurate, because that's where I'm hoping to be four weeks from today...

    We tried the bartop VP yesterday in Bellagio about three pm. The bar was pretty quiet but it took a while for the bartenders to serve us. Maybe an unfair snapshot of their service, but we found it pretty poor in comparison to the lobby bar at Caesars. Also, we could barely scratch a win, playing max bet on Jacks or Better. Previous day in Caesars we won four of a kind plus a few straights and two pairs etc for the same spend. As I said, an unscientific poll, but that was how it went for us.

    It's accurate as of late April. You have to find the old All Star units on the interior of the bar though.

    And you might have missed some info mike because most of the paytable data has been condensed in the bartop sticky:

    http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?111193-A-Video-Poker-Primer-with-Bartop-Listings-and-Better-Nickel-Options!

    The data from Bellagio:
    Bellagio:
    Baccarat Bar: $1 (all prog.) 7/5 BP**, 9/5 DDB**, 9/6/5 DB**
    Sportbook Bar: 5c, 10c, 25c: 7/5 BP**, 9/5 DDB** Spin Poker on All Stars 25c: 9/5 JoB**, 9/5 DDB** (also w/STP), 7/5 BP** (also w/STP) on All Star units; New Game Kings: 25c: 8/5 DDB* w/indiv. prog.

    they may have a "little" better paytables...but they don't comp your drinks!
    EDIT: Sorry, nevermind, was thinking of Wynn.

    Sports bar has always been good service. You can sit one side and sort of watch all the TVs in the sports area. Or sit on the other side and watch all the "traffic" go by. Bartenders always seem to be great there.

    It'll probably be obvious when I get there (I've never actually sat down at the B sportsbook bar) but: what do you mean by "the interior of the bar"?

    Thanks!

    It's in an Uish shape when looked at from the main gaming floor. Get inside the U. The outside are all new game kings with worse paytables before adding progressives. The progressives are individual though, so they aren't bad if you can find one pushing $2k.

    Gradytripp, I was just at Bellagio and found the 25c 9/5 JoB still at the Sports Bar. It's on the ten machines on the sportsbook side of the bar. These machines are labelled "Super Star Poker" not "All Star Poker" and also have $1 9/5 JoB and $5 9/6 JoB.

    I also confirmed that these ten also still have the 5c/10c/25c 7/5 BP Spin Poker.

    And the casino side of the bar has $1/$2/$5 7/5 BP progresssives just like at the Baccarat Bar.

    I sent all this to vpFREE2 and it's there now.

    Added the BP prog in and changed the multi game to superstar. Thanks!

    Definitely hope to spend some more time at Bellagio next trip! Great bar for lower rollers with the superstar machines!

    Is the JOB single line or spin poker? Is there a point earning restriction on these machines that you know of?

    gonna hit the bar up with a few baseball bets in hand in july.

    The 9/5 and 9/6 JoB I mentioned on the Super Star Poker machines at the Bellagio Sports Bar are single-line not Spin Poker. I don't know anything about point earning restrictions at this casino.

    Maybe I'm misreading your sticky, but I don't see the $1 9/5 JoB single-line there that I reported being on the Super Star machines at the Bellagio Sports Bar.
