    Ty, I think you have a better chance of getting 5 of a kind Joker Poker for 4,000 than to get those ACES to line up properly. :poke:
    I do play ACES occasionally hoping for a miracle.

    Don’t forget to stop at the Brighton’s at the Macon airport. Surely they opened one while you’ve been gone….:rolleyes:

    You might get some soul food and cornbread at Macon Regional, that's about it. Good food.

    I played that game many years when it did line up I had forgotten it was possible.
    My first thought was now I get a kicker with my aces. I had just changed games.

    I would say that's absolutely True. There are 13 different hands that could comprise 5 of a kind, 4 that make up royals, but only 2 that make up ACES. The difference is the variance. ACES bonus poker often still returns 2-1 for 2 pair and 4,000 for royal flush. Joker Poker that pays 4,000 or progressive on 5OAK typically only returns 500 on a royal flush. And typically only starts paying at 2P vs Kings or Better.

    Enjoyed your report - I have gone to AC my whole life (even before casinos) and never ate at Docks --- I need to go! Love the Borgata - was there at the end of September -had fun but ended up losing.... was there the end of June and my husband won the $2000 free play - he turned it into $1600 real cash. Enjoyed all your pictures and it looked like you had a great time!
