"Bonus Poker" paying 35 for all quads

Post by YearOfTheCat »

Plainridge Park in Massachusetts has some machines with "Bonus Poker" as the first game on the menu, but the pay table doesn't have the usual bonuses for four aces and four 2-4. It's really Jacks or Better with a bigger spread between quads and full house:

Royal 800
SF 50
Quad 35
FH 6
Flush 5
Straight 4
Triple 3
Two pair 2
High pair 1

Wizard of Odds has this version listed on the page about Bonus Poker, noting it was seen at the Morongo casino in California. I don't see it available under the Custom Pays at VideoPoker.com, unless it's under a different name. I'm assuming it's fairly uncommon?

EV is 97.36%, which is not great, but slightly higher than 8/5 Jacks or Better, which is also offered on this machine (97.298%).

Used to be 8/5 Bonus Poker with 35 to 1 for Quads in Vegas years ago.

This is the one you'd want to look for.

I've seen a VP YouTuber find that 35/8/5 better paytable at Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt, Pleasant, Michigan fairly recently.

Yep they have it up there. The one in my picture is a single machine in the high limit area at Toledo. There are other mid to high 99% games on that machine but are all at the $5 denomination ($25 max bet) and single line. The only exception is the Triple Deuces Wild game which can be found on most Game Kings at the $1 and $2 level. You can see them in a post I have here.
