Post by boobert »

Has quarter vp gotten better or worse at tropicana since eldorado took over. Anything decent? I haven't been there in years.

I have not been there in a while myself. I recall when they had the 5 joker game at 99.9 % but have since lowered it to 99.59 % . oh well .

I was just there. I think they downgraded the 5 jokers. I took a pix of the best 5 joker machine I found:

This is the inventory that VPfree2 has for Trop:

Am I right? Also, I didn't do an EXHAUSTIVE search of all the machines.

Jojo, the paytable in your photo is the 99.59% version.

Thanks, Rebus. That's good to know! I got confused as I didn't see the 800 coin payout on the higher hands.

Everything else checked out. They were 5 uprights by the Ladies restroom.

Hate uprights. I've learned to manage my dollar play at Caesars to avoid Bally's.

that 99.59% return has a relative low variance I think. I wish they had the game in dollars ! how r there mailers at Tropicana lately ???????

my wife lost her bankroll playing that 5 joker game last weekend, the issue with that game is the jackpot is 1/84k and next is 1/176k. with that being said you can get wiped out easily on a bad run of cards (4hr can be costly)

although the machine is played ALOT and rarely ever see the jackpot over 2k$, often times you have to wait to get a seat thats how good that game is and shows not everyone in ac is not stupid

but again not my cup of tea 1/84k is too long for me but good luck to you

Way too long. Site didn't mention T JOB at all. BP 99.1% only dollar. Not a viable change of scenery casino for me.

I've actually seen the jackpot get as high as $ 4,700. About 2-3 years ago.
