    Hello,
    I love playing Multi Hand 5 cent video poker. I usually play Double Double Bonus. I was wondering if anyone knows if Multi Hand 5 cent Jacks Or Better is available in Las Vegas? I've played these machines hundreds of times but I never really paid attention since I've just recently gotten into Jacks Or Better. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks very much in advance!

    Yes, you should find these almost everywhere. It's my favorite denom to play on multi-hand; especially the STP versions.
    I've played multi hand 5-cent machines at: NYNY, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, and a handful of others I can't remember at the moment.
    Not all strip casino's have them, and they are quite common off strip and downtown.

    Most of the time, where you've played these machines for DDB, JoB will also be available on them. Many casinos will have up to 10 play games and some will have 25/50/100 plays. Curious as to why you're switching from DDB. Usually goes the other way around.

    However on many of these games, especially on the strip, JoB is often a poorer paytable than its nearest cousin, Bonus Poker. Bonus Poker can be reliably played with JoB strategy.

    In terms of paytables the full house + flush must pay 2 units higher in JoB to make it the better game vs. Bonus. Also make sure that Bonus Poker pays 2 for 1 on 2 pair, the worst version doesn't pay 2 for 1 on two pair.

    9/6 JoB > 8/5 Bonus > 9/5 JoB > 7/5 Bonus > 8/5 JoB > 6/5 Bonus > 7/5 JoB.

    6/5 Bonus (96.87%) is plentiful on the strip for nickels (including many Super Times Pay games), 8/5 JoB (97.30%) is much less plentiful.

    Tropicana/Silverton has nickel 50-plays with full pay 8/5 Bonus (99.17%)

    Palms has 1c, 2c 50 play with 9/6 JoB (99.54%).

    South Point has both full pay games on their nickel 50 plays.

    Also note on Super Times Pay and 25/50/100 play games, you don't have to bet all the lines to bet max credits per line.
