    I read just now on www.vpfree2.com that bartop VP at The Suncoast has been downgraded... missing is full pay BDlx.

    :nono: I guess I won't be visiting there on my next trip...

    Hmmm...I see it does not say "several bars" on vpfree2 anymore. This must have happened quite recently, as I played Bdlx at one of the Suncoast bars on February 8 and it was still full pay.

    If it's true, it's really disappointing. Of course Suncoast would downgrade their VP as soon as they sent me free room offers for the first time. :thumbsdown:

    Uh oh. Booked there for April 10-15. BD not my game but if they f*cked with the 9/6 DDB on the bartops, I think plans are going to change.

    Emailing our host right now.

    I think it's gonna be okay Joe.

    They were changing them last Wednesday when we were there. Someone at the bar told me they had changed the machines on one side but had not got to the other side yet. When I compared both sides, DDB was unchanged.

    That's good to hear. I think they had 9/7/5 Double Bonus too, iirc, maybe that survived too? That's over 99% though, unlike DDB. Sucks they got rid of 9/6 "Boner Deluxe" though. I was hoping to hear a Flusher story over that one. :evillaugh

    Although you might not have a play history there Joe, but if you like tons of different beers like I do, M Resort has 9/6 DDB for dollars at their 32 Degree Bar.

    To be honest, until I came upon this thread, I'd forgotten that guy had even mentioned it.

    After he gave me that tip (which he said he got from the bartender) I checked the payouts when playing on "the other side" and since they were the same for our games ($1 DDB and 25 cent BP), I gave it no further thought.

    Keeping in mind that I was enjoying the complimentary cocktails...

    VPFree said they got rid of 8/5 Bonus though at both bars...uh oh. They possibly could have moved DDB to 9/5. Hopefully not for Joe's and everyone else's sake though.

    I was actually going to make a pilgrimage to the Boner Deluxe Parlay bar. No point now.

    The Suncoast also removed the 9/6 BPX from the high limit room, but there are still plenty of 9/6 BPX on the casino floor, up to $2.

    I got a reply back from my host at SC and yes they did lower BPD, but DDB is still 9/6 ($1) and BP (.25) is still 8/5.
