A reminder to pack wipes for my machines next trip. AC machines are beaten down and filthy as a rule.
If they are in fact, your machines, wouldn't you take better care of them?
Or, they'd take better care of you.....

Heeeeee, good one. In addition to the wipes, you will need a small bottle of the sanitizer. Reason being, the spilled drinks and ultimate molasses they make are on the sides of the buttons where you cannot reach too well. Best hope is to dissolve some of it with the liquid or gel, then wipe it down. The buttons and springs under them on most of the new machines, will cease working before the spilled drinks destroy many of them. One guess where the parts are made. I must admit though, I like the curved glass bar tops with the larger buttons

Olds, hope you saw my blip above regarding the All-Star machines.

Yes OTA. Hope the pay tables are at least decent. Up here, the All Star machines pay the correct Royal amount only on spin poker games as low as bet one. Same on Triple spin poker. Up here the tables are in the 97-98 percent range. I have learned one thing from the Mrs. She rarely gets more than a 97 percent table with her nickel play. Yet she almost always does better than me playing 98-99. Seems like if you can hit and quit, you have a good chance of being ahead for the trip. That’s my biggest flaw. The quit part. Still a work in progress. 😬

I don't play deuces so I am not that familiar with pay tables. I assume from seeing your pictures that is what you play on Spin Poker. I will look next time I go assuming I can get on the machines. Grand opening is Friday the 30 so I expect larger crowds from that point onwards. Not many All-Star machines.

I think all of the spin all star games including DDB pay 800 for bet one. At least up here, but only on spin poker. I like it because I can play say 5 lines for 1.25 or .25 on nickels, .5 on dimes. The downside is most are in the 97 percent range

That's not something I look at closely, but it's not common in NV afaik. Spin games here typically pay 250 for bet one, same as most other games.

So I decided to go tonight to see how the casino would be on the night of its Grand Opening. The place was jammed. Parking lot filled, but as I drove up, a space in front opened up. After walking around for a while, I decided to play at the bar. Got a machine even though there was a long line waiting to buy drinks. Guess folks thought with that many people hanging around, no machines would be available. Anyways, I played with people ordering drinks on both sides of me but done bothering me. Stayed for a little less than an hour, played for probably 35 minutes. All told, an hour and 5 minutes from the time i left my garage until I returned. Unreal. If my late wife was alive, we would probably be there daily. :lol:
