    I was speaking to a friend who returned from LAS VEGAS Cromwell last week and stated that the full pay VP is gone and was replaced by penny machines. Can anyone else confirm??

    Say it isn't so! Those are my FP cashout machines. Hopefully someone is there this week to verify. If not, I'll check next monday.

    In the usual spot? I have a feeling his friend missed them. They have been there for almost 4 years now. About 4 years longer than I thought they would last, tbh. :eek:

    Same spot as always. Kind of hard to miss so not sure how OP’s friend got mixed up.

    Wow, played them a lot on my last trip, and they were there on Oct 16th. I always wondered, why they were usually empty, given there's nothing good for quarter VP on the strip.

    If they take them away, I guess craps will be the only playable game on the strip.

    I believe you are right.I don't know how you can miss them.They are the easiest to find.I look forward to playing them in December. These forums show a few decent machines bring in lots of business. We bring friends eat meals stay in hotels and play other games and it always amazes me how many casinos don't realize this.

    Yeah rarely ever full when I've walked by. Once I saw all seats occupied, but some were by spouses just watching.

    I played on 10/25. Machines were still by the entrance near Flamingo. Played some 9/6 JoB and 99.17% BP.

    Thanks. I will try to hit those machines in December with free play from CET and use it to wash FP into cash. Since I don't expect to get any TCs while playing free play, I see no problem with their $50/point formula as it would be no points in any machine.

    Turned $600 in free play into $625 in cash using those full pay 25 cent machines on December 30.
