    Hello all --- I have a question to pose to the board....as I haven't taken the time to do the research yet - I took a quick look at the Wizard of Odds, but not in depth enough to determine anything.
    I am an experienced gambler, but mainly on Table games and Live Poker. I want to venture into the VP realm now. I have downloaded a trainer and want to learn many variations of the game.
    This week I went to my local casino (Horseshoe CB) and poked around on various paytables before settling on this one.
    It was on a bank of machines titled "Bonus Poker" and had a progressive. Attached to this post is a picture of the paytable.

    Please let me know if I did good or not!! Thanks!

    For not being in Vegas, those odds are probably the best you will find at a local casino.

    That looks more like a Double Bonus table but in either case the payback with that current jackpot is 96.49% so it isn't great and even at that quarter level you can find better paytables right on the strip. Maybe its good compared to others in your area but its not good compared to Vegas or AC. Those paytables on the progressives are always a bit screwy because of the progressive. I saw so many machines on my last trip even at the $5 level that had awful paytables because of the progressive, even though the progressive was barely over 20k.

    Yeah 9/6/4 Double Bonus is badddddd. Ideally you want 9/7/5 Double Bonus at the minimum (99.11%). 10/7/5 also exists in some parts of Vegas (100.17%)

    9/6/4 Double Double Bonus (DDB) is much better and considered "full-pay" at 98.98%. The difference between Double Bonus and Double Double Bonus is that four of a kinds with certain kickers pay even more in Double Double Bonus.

    And apparently 9/6/4 DDB is the best that Council Bluffs offers, and it's part of a progressive near the poker room.

    They also have a "Super Times Pay" machine (6 credits per hand activates a random multiplier) with full-pay DDB that ups the return to 99.26%. Super Times Pay is like crack to me...lol But be warned it can really up the variance in the game.
