Yes, a 100.7% game if played perfectly. I practiced, but wasn't close to perfect, probably 100.5%. Still a good game. You needed to be more aggressive going for straights, flushes and straight flushes based on the enhanced payouts

Example: QQJT9 rainbow, it was a major mistake to hold the QQ; you had to draw for the straight.

I just happened to notice by accident that Mohegan sun has all American poker on some of their machines. I didn’t check the pay tables and I’m not all that familiar with the game. But will try and remember to check it out next trip

Presumably those are Bally machines. In Nevada I only see the IGT equivalent: USA Poker.

Original full pay was 40 for any quad and 8/8/8 in the middle. Now you'll find quads shorted to 35, 30 or 25; OR the middle shorted to 7/7/7.

Exactly. Olds, report back. Doubt they are full pay. Mohegan still has dollar full pay pick'em ?

Went extinct around 2007/2008 when the recession hit. Did very well on those for several years. They were in Multi game Game King machines.
Thanks, the timing makes sense. 2007 was probably the last of the dollar games nationwide, then quarters dried up by 2009.

I assume many of the Bally machines continued in use, but operators realized it wasn't a good idea to activate AA on the menu. Either that or possibly Bally updated the software to include a short-pay AA variant.

AA was a hard game to play correctly. If you used any kind of regular JoB strategy, you'd be far below 100%. And if you bet less than max, both SF and RF payoffs were shorted.
3 criteria Brains , bankroll , belly . That is belly as in guts. any of these missing and results may vary !!

4th criteria, strong bladder. Ever have a good streak going, but have to go to bathroom? Of course, we all have.

I think there are 2 dollar full pay pickem machines open in rhe Earth casino near the entrance to the Hall of Lost Tribes. I will have to search again for the All Anerican game. I know I just saw it, but was very tired at the time.
