    Can I please get a list of which properties (Strat. to MB) offer this, if they do indeed exist at all? I know the pay tables would be terrible, and I am aware that I would be better suited playing local or downtown. Thank you for your assistance.

    Thank you. Do you think that vpfree2 is more up to date than getting information from members of this board who have played there more recently?

    Wow! Thank you! What does SP or 1 Play mean? I would like to play max credits (1.25) one hand at a time.

    SP is spin poker. You can play one hand at a time on it for 5 credits (the center line), but it can be a bit frustrating due to its display. The max number of lines is 9.

    Also if you wanted to up your availability of games to play. I would also consider adding 7/5 Bonus (98.01%) as an option. The strategy is virtually identical.

    Also unless there is a minimum total bet requirement listed, you're also allowed to play any number of lines on Super Times Pay (STP) and 25/50/100 play machines and bet 5 credits per line.

    I guess I will have to learn me some 7/5 Bonus on the Wizard's site. Thanks for the suggestion.

    1 Play means it's a single hand game.

    I see Cromwell no longer listed - when did they get rid of that double bank of full pay 25c machines?

    Not JoB but close.

    Bonus Poker
    1-2-3-4-5-8-25-40-80-50-800
    25¢, $1
    3 Play
    Triple Spin Poker left of buffet
    2 Slant-tops

    You can play many more than 3 hands, I just can't remember the details.

    If you are looking at the entrance to the buffet, go to the left, you will find restrooms on your right, the machines will be on your left.

    Very informative... I've been scoping out preferable options for playing video poker and had essentially dismissed Spin Poker games since I incorrectly assumed you had to play all nine lines in order to get full value from the game.

    Is what you're saying that Spin Poker can effectively be played as if it were a single-line game, without compromising return? And if so, is this considered to be poor form in any way among other players?

    Yes, as long as you're playing 5 coins a line, it doesn't matter how many lines you bet. Same with STP/DSTP. The number of hands is irrelevant. Return only depends on the number of coins bet.

    Also Hot Roll is also a game where you can play regular poker at 1 hand for 5 coins a line. But to play the hot roll feature, you have to bet all the lines. This is also noteworthy because if JoB is available, it will always be at least 8/5.

    In most casinos, it's not a big deal to play Spin Poker/STP/DSTP with one line as these games are almost always on All Star II and Superstar Poker machines.

    AD PSA: be warned of the accidental :eek:max bet press while playing 1 line on mega (100) line machines.
    It's possible wonderful things happen, but it's more likely you * clench.

    same with thinking you will roll over back to one on that stupid 2 FOR 1 bj option.

    Ah, good memories. I've spent a lot of time at these machines. Bellagio is my "Vegas Mecca"--the first place I ever stayed--but I don't get to gamble there much except at these two machines. (I'm a 25c JoB/BP player and a $10/$15 3:2 BJ player). Many hours spent with multiple G&Ts and a good VP paytable, betting $1.25 at a time and just soaking in the Bellagio atmosphere. Plus it's quite close to the guest elevators.

    The only drawback is that the two machines are not next to each other (there's some other random machine between them). Also, about 25% of the time one of them doesn't seem to be working very well.

    @fwtxbevo I think you're getting some good advice as to where to find the best game, but as to .25 cent jacks or better. Every single casino has this game as an option. Nearly every bar top will offer and nearly every machine with multi games will offer it. It's probably the most commonly available game when it comes to vp.

    Thank you. So you are saying that every/virtually every casino on the strip has .25 JOB. However, not every strip casino on vpfree2 seems to have JOB listed, much less .25 JOB. Is that because vpfree2 lists only the games with the best return for each casino, and not just a master list of VP in each casino? Thanks to everyone for answering my dumb questions!
