Was at Harrahs yesterday and saw a bunch of new grey machines scattered around the VP area in varied states of readiness, does anyone know what type they are or what games will be available on them?

I'll be there in about 4 hours. If nobody's reported back by then, I'll take a look.

Not sure about Atlantic City. But I just got back from Tunica and they had many new video poker machines at Harrah's properties. Most of them were your basic game kings with fairly standard games. The weirdest games I saw was wild 7s, super shockwave, and one eyed jacks. At Harrahs and Tunica Roadhouse most pay tables were not good. They had 95 jacks or better, 96 double double bonus, and 97 double bonus for dollars or higher. Tunica Roadhouse also had All Star Poker II machines newly installed with double super times pay, ult x, spin poker, and triple spin poker. All games on those were < 97%. :(

Caesars is acquiring 7000 new machines from IGT:

On vpfree2, someone posted a comment about Harrah's Laughlin: "Literally 98% of all VP machines ... have been replaced."

According to player reports, all the new pay schedules are below 99%. They've eliminated the 9/6 Jacks, 8/5 Bonus and 9/7/5 DB.

They probably won't downgrade so drastically in AC, but I wouldn't expect any upgraded schedules.

...and suddenly I'm much less excited about tomorrow's point multiplier day...

If you are a high-rolling video poker player, come to the Ohio CET properties to play (Cleveland and Cincy). 9/6 Jacks at $1 denom. and higher and 16/10 Deuces at $5 and higher. Their offers are ridiculously good!

rdw4potus: I don't think they will be operational by tomorrow, they were in pieces all over the VP area, ugly grey looking things.

Yep, they're still hanging out there all strewn about. That's all 5 feet from the door of the (currently unused) Event Central. Why not pull the huge pile of machines and chairs off the floor?

Also, at a BJ table right there, a woman just about beat the snot out of a guy as I was walking by. It turns out that "Are you a virgin?" is the incorrect response to "It's my 21st birthday, so my mom took me here!" And, interestingly, when the mom screamed "I'll kick your ass!" as the dude was being dragged away, a security guy who'd stayed behind deadpanned "we'll take care of that, ma'am."

I'm here until Monday...if this is what's happened in the first 30 minutes of Wednesday, what's the weekend going to be like?
