There are other VP variations on the bank I discussed but am unfamiliar with them.

Oatbill are these games at the .25 cent level only or are there different denominations with the same pay table?

On our journey west this winter we might stop in to play a bit. I heard you mention the smoke and we are both non smokers so that will probably limit our stay. We would try and arrive some morning during the week when it is not as busy (and less smoke). It is really out of the way but we can get free rooms at Harrah's Ak Chin so it might work out.

Thanks for your help.

Will do when I am back there assuming I can get an open machine. Not too many of these. Two on one side and 3 on the other. I am unfamiliar with most of the other banks there. I'm sure CK is better able to provide info on other machines.

I was at the Fort last week. The info here is accurate: http://www.vpfree2.com/casino/fort-mcdowell except I couldn't find the "Super Aces" game.

(Ignore the previous post. I can't edit it)

I was at the Fort last week. I was comparing the games to the ones on this list: http://www.vpfree2.com/casino/fort-mcdowell .

I found some of them but the top payoff is different than what is listed.

For example: 99.96% DW44 is listed with a payout of 1-2-3-4-4-11-15-25-200-800 but the top payout is 250 instead of 800.

99.96% DDB (1-1-3-4-6-10-50-80-160-160-400-40-800)

99.81% DBDW (1-1-2-3-4-12-20-50-160-25-200-400-800)

Are the screenshots of the games that I took match the names of the games? Is the top payout of 800 an error on that site?

Anyone know how to calculate the EV on this progressive game? The top two payouts are a little higher than normal but the other two are basically the same.

The $1 JoB game is there as listed on the site, but I couldn't find the "Super Aces" game.

I'm sensitive to smoke but I didn't find the place to be that bad. It's not a clean casino but I didn't feel like I was breathing in 2nd hand smoke the whole time I was there.

Nelson, you need to bet max credits to get the 800 payout on the royal.

On which one? Max credit payout for a royal is 4000. How are you supposed to read that nomenclature?

The paytables you quoted from vpFREE2 are the five coin paytables divided by 5. But if you look at their 5-coin paytable pages you will see that the paytables are the same as what you saw in the casino. Here's the one for the 99.96% Deuces Wild - http://www.vpfree2.com/video-poker/pay- ... -4/5-coins

Case: Finally got back to the Fort for a Bingo night out. I checked the machines and the same pay tables (DDB 10/6 with the sf at 40 and TDB at 9/7) are for both $.25 and $1.00. Actually, there are more machines with theses paytables. The two I mentioned above and about 6 or 7 perpendicular too and adjacent to the three I mentioned above. Checked the three and they are only for keno. All are proximate to the stage and the eating area for the deli. My reference book says the DDB is 99.96%. Hope this helps.
