    Plan to be in Vegas later this week.
    Staying at Caesars Palace and plan to play VP at Aria, Bellagio, and Mirage.
    Any recommendations on VP (DDB or DB $1.00) machines at those MGM properties, or at CP and nearby CET properties?
    Thanks for any input.

    Mirage has $1 9-6 DDB on the floor -- lots of machines, but you have to look because some are 9-5.

    I play a fair amount of $1 DDBP near the high limit room at the Mirage. Just walk past the craps tables to the end of the HL room and just outside of there you will find quite a few. I am uncertain if they are 9/6 but I know they are 9/5.

    Aria has a bank of progressives near the room elevators. I believe they are 9/5.

    And Bellagio has pretty good $1 all over the casino. I like playing by Hyde nightclub. The bar scene can provide a fair amount of entertainment later in the evening when you need to take a quick time out from staring at a vp machine as well as having had a fair amount of luck there.

    Harder to find decent DDBP for $1 at CET but there are a few 9/5 or 9/6 $1 in Flamingo HL room. I don't play too much in Caesars as my luck there is generally brutal.

    Bally's HL room has 2 $1 DDBP machines. Paris has a progressive bank near the Diamond Lounge that is 9/5.

    Hope some of this helps.

    Do the Mirage DDB VP machines count toward your MLife card points? I believe the better paying machines at NYNY have a sign on them saying they do NOT apply toward your tier points.

    I am pretty sure the ones at Mirage count, NYNY is a weird exception to the rule. Don't quote me on that though, I am not rich enough to play dollars. :(

    This is absolutely true about NYNY on their full pay games. And they do have signs on them.

    At Mirage, the $1 DDB 9-6 absolutely counts on your tier points, plus you accrue free play and Express Comps. I played it on the last weekend of April and I was paying attention to those things.

    In their defense, DDB is the worst "full pay" among popular games. Especially since offstrip Vegas offers above "full pay" at 10/6.
