    I am looking at both of these options to play, however, the Harrah's game is BP @ 98.01% and MGM is 99.17. I do realize that it's over 1% difference, but in the short term I don't think it means all that much......thoughts?

    For every $100 you bet at Harrahs you will lose $1.16 more than at MGM. Now of course this is over 10's of thousands of hands.

    If you're max betting the game, it's a pretty big difference. For a max bet of dollars, it's a few bucks per round and with turbo, and you probably can get in a 400 rounds an hour.

    And also if you feel like learning quick quads, the 8/5 Bonus MGM game becomes 99.55%. If you learn 9/6 DDB quick quads, that becomes 99.65%, the best returning game in all of MLife. Quick Quads is fun as hell too, imo. Hearing the machine say "Quick Quad!" is great! Here's a pic from the 45/7/5 Bonus game (98.29% w/QQ) for nickels also at MGM.

    Here are the full pay strategies available at MGM for dollars, and Ellis Island for nickels-quarters.

    9/6 JoB with Quick Quads (99.61%):

    I have been looking at DDB but the variance on that game is almost double if I not correct, so I thought instead of boring JoB that BP would be a better play.

    Yeah, variance on DDB quick quads sorta sucks. Last time I played it for nickels, I hit Aces twice for $50 each at Ellis Island, and two other $13 quads in only 700 hands, but only ended up $65 overall. They were all natural quads! :eek:

    JoB and Bonus are definitely better choices if you want to keep variance lower. Keep in mind though, JoB pays 236 for every quad in quick quads instead of 125. So that's a little less boring. Why 236? Because 235 would lower the game to 99.51%, lower than standard 9/6 JoB (99.54%).

    I wondered about the 236. Guess I'll have to decide
