    The front of the Downtown Grand mailer for March says they have full-pay JOB. Does anyone know where these machines are and at what denomination these tables apply? I didn't see any my last trip between Christmas and New Year.

    Look at the bank of machines in the hallway that runs past the Sportsbook toward the hotel front desk. Last time I was there those machines had 9/6 JoB, 8/5 BP, and 9/6 DDB. Quarters and above.

    Furnace bar has 9/6 DDB at the 50 cent level.

    Just checked VPFree, and the site indicates that there are several banks on the floor, but they are only available at .25 level.

    JoB 99.54% - 25 cent
    BP 99.17% - 25 cent & $1
    DDB 98.98% - 25 cent & $1
    Bdlx 98.49% - 25 cent & $1

    They just added 9/6 job, there are no machines in the hall. They put them in sometime before the 1st of March the week before there was only 8/5 bp. In fact while I was playing 8/5 BP in the hall they put the machines in the hall out of service!This was Feb. 223rd They have 6 machines on the floor now that I know that are 9/6 job. i might add they could have put machines back in the hall since 3/1?.

    Just got back from a March Madness trip. I only found 4 machines with 9/6 JoB in the whole place (near the entrance on Ogden and 3rd). The rest were 7/5.

    They were $0.25 machines. I did not go into the high-limit area to see what was in there.

    Did you check out any other paytables for other games like DDB? How's it looking at Furnace Bar?

    DDB is not my game, so I didn't pay attention to any of the paytables for it. I did notice they also still have $0.25 8/5 Bonus machines around. The Furnace Bar has always had disappointing payouts, so I don't bother with it anymore.

    I recall the bank of machines between the door and Furnace Bar having good paytables. I'll try to remember and report back in a few weeks on other paytables.

    As of two weeks ago the Furnace Bar had full pay DDB at the .50 level. I believe there was full pay at the .25 level on the floor as well.

    Furnace bar's quarter DDB progressive is 8/5 I believe (I guess I could check the pictures....) but the Aces kicker prog often gets into the $700 and $800 range and I've seen it over $1000 a few times.

    They have 9/6 at the 50 cent level (no progressive) if I recall correctly.

    There ya go.

    And yes, 9/6 quarter DDB is available on the floor. There are also some DDB progressive machines on the floor too, so it pays to check out the different banks and see where the Aces are highest. They used to be all tied to one progressive, but last time it looked to me like the floor machines were different than the bar.
