    Last month, during a stay at my local Harrahs, I discovered that a bank of dedicated (only Keno) machines were allowing me to accumulate points at $5=1 Tier Credit, just like a slot machine would. I know that, normally, video Keno games are found on mixed Game King machines that include mostly video Poker games and give you $10=1 Tier Credit. Are there video Keno machines in Las Vegas (whether Total Rewards or MLife) where you accumulate points the same as playing slots? I have never really noticed but, again, when I playing, it is typically not on a dedicated video Keno machine. I am particularly fond of the Caveman Keno game and, from what I've seen, while the payback percentage is not as good as Video Poker, it is better than most slots and I enjoy the "mindlessness" of playing it. Would like it even more if I was earning tier credits at the higher rate.

    I haven't found any yet, but I admit I really haven't looked either. And at least on the bartops, they should give $5 a point for keno, imo. The paybacks are pretty crappy when I've bothered to analyze them. Mostly around 90%. Also I would double check those $5 a point machines are okay paytables. When ameristar used to give point multipliers on slots, they offered 2X points on one VP bank. The paytables were the lowest you would ever expect for a Game King, 6/5 JoB, 6/5 DDB, etc. But tons of people were suckers and played them anyway.
