Bonus Poker in Las Vegas

Post by Purzel »

Hi

I am wondering how popular Bonus Poker is in Las Vegas ? Is that one of the more played games ? Are there players that are specialized on Bonus Poker ? I know according to Bob Dancers VP for winner that DDB is most played game in Nevada . Wish we would have FP Bonus Poker im Colorado .

I'd say it's fairly popular, maybe even the 2nd most popular, but still decently far behind DDB. And it one of the easier games to find at "full pay" (8/5). Particularly downtown and off-strip.

You mean Rob? Or do you mean Bob Dancer?

Rob picked that name to spoof Bob.

I really miss the 8/5 Bonus poker that was yanked out of Mohegan Sun several years ago. Although there is no shortage of 9/6 jacks still at Mohegan, I liked the Bonus game because after a long losing day, you could come back with just a couple of hits either on the aces or the low card quads. That may be why they did get rid of it. Not really sure because the long term take for the house is slightly better on the Bonus game than 9/6 job. My best ever run on the 8/5 Bonus game was in fact at Mohegan where I hit quad aces 5 times in an hour. I hit my share of Royals on the game too, but those days are gone. I see why so many people do play DDB, but if the quads aren't hitting, the 2 pair penalty will evaporate your stake for the day like an ice cube on a hot sidewalk.

I prefer to grind away on my humble little 19.5 variance game and end each session ever so slightly positive. I would appreciate two quads in fifteen minutes to prevent total profit erosion!

I'd also fear being arrested for destroying the machine on the usual DDB cold streak.
