Thanks Ota for checking this out. Outside of Vegas these are great pay tables. If they are going to short something the straight flush is best because I rarely hit one.

I just got home from a couple days at Soaring Eagle casino in Mount Pleasant Michigan. They also have the 10-6 DDB with short straight flush.

Thanks again!

FYI it is about 50+ miles and an hour with no highway traffic delays from Ak Chin south of Maricopa to Fort McDowell outside Fountain Hills.

Case the next time your headed to Soaring Eagle give me heads up. I play there many times a week! Can't bring myself to play DDB even with that near 100% pay table, they drop the SF to 200 coins to keep it under. Play mostly 9/6 Jacks and 8/5 BP there. Some NSUD as well.

I will do that Wildman. Not sure when we will return but we will return hopefully once more this year. I don't play Jacks but I do play a lot of BP. Got a trip planned to Vegas Sept 15 to 21 coming up next.

I like Soaring Eagle but sometimes the smoke gets to me if I am downwind.

Finally we were able to go back to Fort McDowell to play bingo for the first time since 2018. Because of the smoke and our health issues my wife and I haven't played VP there in a couple of years. In any event, during intermission I went onto the casino to see if any changes had been made. The $0.25 multi game bank by the deli still has the 10/6 DDB with the sf payout downgrade and the 9/7 TDB as I posted earlier in the thread. I did not check the $1:00 paytable or other machines. I did notice that there was some rearrangements. The tribe is building a new casino to replace the current one that is expected to be open in 2020. It will be interesting to see what the VP options, smoke-free area, and for us, the bingo facility, will be when the new casino opens.

If they are going to short anything the SF is the best to do it on.

Casino Knight: Nice hit. I notice that is 9-6 so I assume the higher dollar games are not as good as the quarters. Still I don't think you are complaining!

Congrats CK. Just curious which bank you were playing. $2.00 is not an option on the machine I cited above.
