    I don't play video poker, so I'm not sure what this will mean for those players...

    For the typical player it probably won't mean too much.

    For the machines that are actually put on the casino floor they will likely have a wider selection of games available - instead of just being the old Game King machines with a few VP, slots, keno and blackjack games these will probably have 75+ games available in them.

    And of the machines listed I would suspect the 3600 upright machines aren't destined for the casino floors but will probably just be replacing the current video poker tournament machines that they have.

    You forgot to write "downgrades" to those machines that CET hasn't downgraded already. Few of the new machines will offer better than 8/5 DDB, imo. With the exception of Joliet, IL at the dollar level, the "new" WMS units at CET have been terrible for paytables from what I've seen.

    CET VP machines replaced at Horseshoe

    Follow up to this thread. I ventured south this past weekend to Horseshat SI.
    They are in full swing in changing out the VP machines to the new uprights.
    These are the same VP machines they have at Horseshoe Cincy.

    Paytables for what I play were as follows:

    Boner Deluxe 8/5 at .25, .50, and 1.00
    DDB 8/5, .50. 1.00

    JoB 7/5 at .25, .50, and 1.00


    Nothing on the pay schedules that I glanced at were above 97% range.

    For now it looks like the STP and Spin Poker machines were being left alone.
    All the old GameKing single line machines and multiplay were in process of being swapped. Expect all the paytables at least here are being downgraded as we speak.

    According to Vegas chatter



    Harrah's is giving its casino floor a massive overhaul. One hundred precent of its slot machines are in the process of being replaced while 300 video poker machines have already been swapped out

    I did not see it, but I am pretty sure all new machines are coming with a direct link into your bank account via the ACH system. One way of course! All debits, no credits.

    LOL!
