You would think these types of things would be always low because people would always play them too low because they seem too easy to win.



I'm not sure the degens that play SD lottery machines are capable of that type of thinking. When I lived there I watched people dump fortunes into these 90% return machines $2 at a time for hours. The poker games probably hold 5% more than they should cause of all the poor plays made like holding a bare ace in deuces wild type stuff.

I suspect you would find these types of plays in Rapid City and Sioux Falls. I doubt there are too many of the newer machines in the rural areas. Last time I was up there the truck stops still had mostly VLTs.

If you are in California I believe there are some reservation machines with Pot of Gold machines. These generally have 7+ spot progressives. Taverns in Las Vegas will sometimes have a Game King six-spot progressive.



Hmm... I will take a look for these pot of gold machines. What do they look like?

Most of the Keno that I see is on Game King machines. They have the Cleopatra Keno and that annoying game with the dinosaurs or whatever (annoying because it is loud and distracts me from playing VP).

lol.. I was watching someone play deuces wild. She got 2 deuces and spent a REALLY long time trying to decide whether to hold a king or a queen with the deuces. Can't throw away 3 of a kind after all!

That is a screen shot of the old versions.

That is what the newer machine consoles look like.

VPFree2 shows these machines at San Manuel in California. I have an old one in my house and the keno can be set as a progressive of up to 1%.

I've seen them but never played them. They're history where I saw them now.

You guys are in the wrong market. There is no way in hell I would live in your market. I would never live where a gambler cant't make it.

I think I've seen something that looks really similar to those units at Pala in SoCal, except the signage says 'Pala Gold'. I'll take a closer look next time I'm down there and report back. (If I remember...)

Thanks for the links. There is definitely nothing like that an any of the places I've played.

You really find a lot of progressive Keno opportunities. I have still yet to ever see a progressive Keno machine. The ones I see (in CA and Vegas) are all fixed-payout.

I do find the slot machines that you talk about though. Some great opportunities there! Also some slot play on the record is a good thing...



Viejas casino (tribal) east of San Diego has Pot o' Gold machines with progressive jackpots for Keno and vp. I've seen jackpots over $150,000. There are regulars that hit the machines hard when the jackpots on a bank of machines gets high. I've watched people play $10 per hand/game/spin whatever you call it in Keno. The losses certainly add up quickly unless you hit the jackpot!

On May 30th someone hit a Superball Keno jackpot for $143,460
