    Can you find Ultimate X at the 10c level anywhere on the strip? I like to play five hand BP or DW but haven't looked for it on the Strip yet...

    I would think there should be some casinos that offer it at the 5c/10c/25c levels. CET slot finder says that Caesars Palace, Flamingo, Harrah's, and The Quad all offer it for as cheap as nickels. But I doubt they would offer BP for nickels or dimes. That would create too high paying of a machine, and CET would hate to do that. :nono: They might bother to offer 20/10/8/4/4/3 Deuces since that's just above 96%. I know they have DDB...everyone does. :evillaugh

    My girlfriend loves Ultimate X and she played a ton just in between the elevator banks at TI. She was playing 3 hand nickles at max did really well. She hit on four deuces dealt probably 3 or 4 times this last week, paid 1K a hand. She did well enough to suck me into the nickles which I avoid and I did well too. I only played JOB at max without ultimate.

    She managed 7K coin in on maybe five hundy of her money, I don't know what the hell was up with that but she came home down maybe three hundred. I must mention that she was only down due to her wins on the FP she got with the 7K. her FP netted her another two hundred so she was down maybe a hundred or two.

    Myself after switching to nickles......well it was just weird. Same area she was in and I was hitting 4OAK 3 hand 25 cents a hand all the time every day. I've never seen anything like it but I hit 4OAK 20 or so times on a $20 investment. I've never seen anything like it, on the other hand I was dealt royals - 1 a ton of times only to be disappointed every single time. I came home a solid two hundred up.

    It was our first time at TI and we found the drink service was beyond excellent, the VP was really good and we enjoyed the vibe. We have been home just 4 hours and my girl is planning the next trip LOL.

    I have no idea how popular Ultimate X is or how many casinos have it. But I would think that low minimums would be the norm – even on the strip – considering how many credits you have to bet per hand.

    I’ve only played the game once and that was at Encore. It was a multi-denomination machine that went as low as nickels, I believe.

    Sorry guys :lol:

    If you think you are using up time well let's just say I never ever should have shown my girlfriend that one when I found it. I must say she is one happy person to have "her" game to play at home though.

    Players beware...you'll struggle to find play tables as good as they offer for this play money game on the Strip. :grrr: Most of the games offered are 99%+ on that play money link.

    I have an irrational dislike of Ultimate X because it seems like it always know when I have a large multiplier and gives me crap hands! :grrr:

    Haha I share a similar love/hate relationship with this game. When everything is lit up for 7x+, I get the worst hands ever.

    I have a couple embarrassing big hits from play money poker in the past year. It's stopped making me play play money VP as much because I root to lose when I play play money. :grrr:

    Played this every night at Wynn last week. Multi-Denom machine; it was nickels, dimes or quarters. There are 3 of them as soon as you walk into Wynn Casino and past the shops, on your right. Played them for hours at 30 nickels a spin. :thumbsup:
