    Got in late last night from east coast so I was a bit tired but it looked like the NSUD on second floor of the D has been downgraded. Will look again but am not hopeful.

    VPFree2 still says there are 10 machines near keno upstairs, but that could be out of date. If they get rid of NSUD, the Vue Bar progressive will be one of the few "good games" left. Derek has really torn VP up there this past year. :(

    Just checked again. All 10 machines in bank near keno that were NSUD at $.25 and above are now: 1 2 2 3 4 10 15 25 200 (4000) at those denominations.

    Last year, they removed the 10/7 double bonus. I'm guessing the goal is to make the video poker as poor as what they have at the Golden Gate.

    Nice job D. Those 99.73% games you offered were certainly going to be the downfall of your casino. Great work identifying the thermal exhaust port magnitude weakness you had on your gaming floor.

    The 50c and $1 NSUD on these have been downgraded also. I looked at them today. This must be a recent downgrade. They had NSUD last time I looked.

    They have enough drunk bros at the tables who are unable to coherently gamble properly to make up for it ;) They know the smart video poker players have a better chance to win some of that money back..

    Someone on the vpFREE forum said these machines had NSUD this Monday so, yes, this is a very recent downgrade.

    WOW! It's one thing to downgrade a "notch"...but it's another thing to gut the paytables 5%!

    I was there a few weeks ago and every bar-top I checked on JoB at each level was 7/5. Though I didn't check every single one, also I don't mess with the ones on the floor unless I am playing multi-hand.

    Assuming they still have 8/5 bonus, this place is still playable with the right coupon in play. If they also downgrade BP, I will be collecting one last round of comps and moving on. Hopefully, the NSUD machines will resurface somewhere. I hated where they were directly under the loudest speakers with the worst music in Vegas. I'm not a picky listener but I don't need the Beegees at full concert volume.

    They should be publicly flogged for doing that to my favorite Cheesehead couple.

    What? 94.8%? Worse than the airport?
    Please tell me this is not true.

    I appreciate the update on the paytables. After a two year Vegas absence I was thinking of who to give my play in order to rebuild a relationship. This made my decision much clearer.... Boyd.

    Cheers
