    We are VP Deuces wild enthusiasts; what VP do you play, and for how much? Thanks for you input!

    Ditto - That is too funny, same games and same denominations. Well, Joe, I guess we know who the degenerate gamblers are in our families:poke:

    I knew I liked you:beer:

    I play mainly $.25, a mix of DW, DDB and DB.

    My husband plays the same games, but will up it to $.50 or $1 at times.

    I mostly play Super Times Pay or Double Super Times Pay. I usually only play 1 line though unless its 1c or 2c. I will also play Quick Quads sometimes.

    nickels or lower if < 98.9% return

    quarters if > 98.9% return

    Which game? Almost always whichever is the highest paytable available. But I would rank the games I like to play in roughly this order if I ignored paytables:

    Double Double Bonus, Bonus Poker, Deuces Wild, Bonus Deuces Wild, Triple Bonus Plus, Bonus Poker Deluxe, Jacks or Better, Double Bonus

    I don't really ever play Triple Double Bonus or Joker Poker.

    I usually play jacks or better or bonus. Preferably on full pay machines.
    I like the payout for 2 pair better.

    JOB: Single Line: $0.25 or $1. Triple Line $1 or $2.
    DB or DW: $0.25 Single Line only.

    I am not a regular player throughout the year (only in Vegas), so despite the higher FP payout on DB or DW, I get a bit more adventurous with JOB due to the lower variance. I am relatively new to Video Poker, picking up the habit here and via Royal Flusher's Blog. I play Blackjack when I want to think (and drink a bit) and VP when I want to drink (more than a bit).

    I am hoping to get my second RSF this August (at The Cal or Four Queens).

    Four Queens is offering $25 Freeplay on all max play $0.25 plus Quad Queens in July and August!

    I usually play Spin Poker (JoB, DW, BP) or 50 Play (JoB, DW). How much I play really varies from pennies to quarters.

    I play mostly JoB, BP and ACE$ - anywhere from quarters to dollars, though quarters are very common, dollars are rare. I usually play single line, but had some fun at triple line quarter JoB at MSS recently and may hit that again.

    I will usually always play DDB, but I always mix up what type of machine and denomination. I will play $0.25, $0.50, and $1 single line DDB. But I tend to mix up the games. I will play 5 or 10 play DDB at the quarter level and my most recent degeneracy has been found at the Ultimate X Poker at the quarter level in either the 5 or the 10 line.

    I also like to play the 100 play $0.01 DDB, but that's more for fun and some good laughs after drinking excessively.

    Almost always .25 JOB, NYNY still has the full pay machines, but no Mlife points at all. I'll also play the $2 full play JOB at Luxor and Excalibur.

    I think I'd really like DW, but I haven't spent the time yet to master the strategy. Hopefully I will by my next trip. JOB can get a bit boring.

    My favorite VP game is 5-play quarter 6/9 DDB, but I only found that in our "local" Indian casino over in Louisiana. I haven't seen that paytable in Vegas.

    In Vegas, we play mostly quarter bonus, but we also like DDB and NSU or full-pay deuces sometimes.

    If you are finding NSU and full-pay deuces in Vegas, you should be able to find 9/6 DDB, and maybe even 10/6 DDB. Palms has 10/6 DDB, full pay deuces, and NSU for example.

    If you are explicitly looking for 5-play quarters, Ellis Island has them at 9/6 DDB. They are Quick Quads machines, but you can skip the Quick Quads bet and just play 5 credits a hand as well.

    My wife = $0.25 DDB and TDB. When she gets on a hot streak, she'll jump to $1 for a few hands. She just started playing DW.
    Me = $0.25 - $1 DW, DDB, TDB. I'm also addicted to multi-hand machines - $0.01 100 Play and $0.25 Triple Play DDB and DW. Early in my playing career I was dealt Aces w/kicker on a penny 100-Play machine at the Hollywood Casino in Tunica for $1,000 and have been hooked ever since.

    Quarter DDB
    Nickels STP DDB at 3 or 5 hands. That equates to $1.50 a spin. :evillaugh
