I just can’t get into any of the gimmick games. The casinos appear to be loading up the machines with them. I know why. They are hoping for another few percent bonuses for themselves from players who do not know the strategy on these 96/97 percent or worse games. I sure don’t and don’t care to ever learn. They are not satisfied with the current state of vp until they get our games down to the 86-88 percent slot level. They never factor in things like how long we pay and the total dollars they rake in from us even on the 99 percent games. Their bottom line is happiness only when we are bottomed out. Will never happen from this player. I will put the stick over my shoulder with my megar belongings tied up in it and run to the nearest boxcar, hopping on for more adventures elsewhrere.

Plenty of AC options if you don’t mind some travel inconvenience. I’m eager to diversify my venues. I cannot get stuck with the same old bust mecca every week. It just cannot be justified.

I have never seen this paytable anywhere in any casino for betting just a quarter. I think it is 98.44. 17/7 game. The best part is it is also 940 for one instead of 800.
I like Triple Spin. 940 for one is new to me also. If you bet one quarter on all 27 lines, that should be a wager amount of $6.75. Taxables would occur on dealt royals ($6,345) and quints ($1,350).

Your jackpot photos should be a fun change of pace from the usual single-line games.

Lets hope I get one but for tonite, I had to just come up to activate my entries on a 50k drawing all from a single barrel. 26 prizes, so it was worth the trip. Just sat down at All star 2. Will be happy with 100 bucks and run. No room tonite. They have become very greedy with rooms even at my play level. No biggy. Back with the Mrs overnite tomorrow. All I did all today was yardwork, but it was great to be outside. Perfect day

in Vegas, anyway, receiving 4700 coins for a Kings or Better Joker Wild royal is more common than a 4000 royal on these games.

We have it here too on single line games, but nowhere I have ever seen where they will pay you 940 for a single quarter bet. For me, that is good because it means I can start even smaller with the Clone.

There you have it. If you can’t clone, leave the machines alone! I will be taking my cloning talents and patience to Borgata. Those machines let you incrementally go quarter to dollar without much pain after hours of play. Beats getting clobbered on dollar machines or getting bored to death on quarter ones.

Here's a 940 on regular Spin Poker:

Emerald Island, Henderson. Max bet is only $9, but the 940 royal is available for all bets from 1 cent up.

Best game on the menu is 10/6 40 DDB 99.96%. Other options include NSUD and 9/6 Jacks. The 18/7 Joker lags behind at 99.29%.

I assume the technician chose 18/7 Joker because it was best available below 100%. Some day maybe manufacturers will allow more granular selections. For example, 18/7 Joker with 55 straight flush would return 99.6%. Bump up the SF to 60 and you're at 99.9%.

The only other place I've see actual full pay royal on single coin bet was Rivers in Pittsburgh. And this was only on Spin Poker games.

I saw a weird Spin Poker config at M Resort. The royal was full pay 800 at one coin, but max bet was only 3 coins per line (2400 royal).

I think it was a 25c denom. Usually when I see max bets below 5 coins, it's in a high limit room.
