    A group of us are going to be staying at the M.C. in March and we were wondering do they have a variety of video poker games?

    Thanks and take care......

    Which means, unless you want to bet $25/hand, it's garbage.

    One of the best low/mid roller option I found was 25-play nickel STP with 6/5 Bonus (97.13% w/STP) near the poker room with no minimum bet requirement, so you can bet as little as 30c or as high as $7.50 per hand for a 97%+ game. But their machine was misprogrammed, imo, with a button labeled as "Bet One" triggering a "Max Bet" on all 25 hands (150 nickels). Their idiotic slot tech and slot floor manager said that "Bet One" did what it was supposed to do. We argued for over an hour over this before the manager gave me my approximate losses back ($5) to shut me up. Yes, they gave that much crap over $5. I gave a crap because I wanted the machine to work correctly in all facets, but they didn't care about that.

    Never playing there again unless to see if that machine is there and if it is still programmed the same way, so I can start a different argument with a different slot manager, and then it might actually be corrected. If you hit the deal/draw button instead though, it will be fine. I played that way for over 30 minutes earlier and everything worked normally.

    6/5 Bonus (96.87%) is also at both of their bars for quarters. I didn't scout out much else because I was drunk and pissed.

    Unless it was absolutely necessary to play VP there, I would play at other MLife properties due to generally slightly better paytables for lower denominations, but I'm also negatively biased I guess. If you can afford $25/hand, by all means, play the full-pay machines there... :rolleyes2:

    I wasn't impressed with the VP at MC. I did find a bank of full pay JOB at NYNY next door, but they don't take an MLIFE card, so you won't accumulate any points on those.
     
    Finally!
