Yesterday I was at the Red Rock and noticed two banks of WMS video poker machines. One by the sports book and one by the buffet. They were all offline, and three techs were busy doing whatever they do to the bank by the buffet. You can see from this sign that they will open tomorrow (Feb 1) at 10 AM.



I'm thinking about showing up for the grand opening. Maybe I'll score a free t-shirt. Any Vegas members care to join me?

I'll be sure to report on the games here shortly afterward.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

It would be nice to see a company other than IGT come out with a successful poker product. Sadly, I don't think this will be it. If they are leased games or daily fee games, they will be in real trouble. Hopefully, Stations bought the games and will give them at least a six month trial.

On a side note, WMS gaming is being bought by Scientific Games. Link

Be sure to check the triple triple bonus paytable. JB calculated that the free flash game had a paytable of 100.8%, so I'm guessing that could be a possible setting. And of course hit something big while trying "Winning Streak Poker"!

I keep meaning to look at one of these machines at Horseshoe Hammond, but I didn't get around to it in my last Chicago trip. :( Hopefully it's still there when I get back there because I agree with DRich; I don't think these machines will last. I really hate how it looks personally.
