Asked around and from what I can gather there is a guy who "owns" the machines who has apparently dumped millions. They keep them off per his request. Don't know to what extent that is true but there you go.

Maybe he's afraid someone will hit his 12x dealt Royal which he knows is due. (I actually wouldn't be surprised, people am crazy.)

I obviously don't have the experience in Vegas to answer to that. From what some people have said, though, there's a lot of competition, so $100 in EV, per day, is probably on the optimistic side.


Quote: DRich

I really think $200 a day is reasonable if you work hard and hit 10 different casinos twice a day. It would be boring, time consuming, and you would have to work odd hours.



UX was released around Nov 2008.
July 2009 - July 2010, Vultured UX in Las Vegas.
When I left, UX +EV had already dropped below $100/day (Averaged $89 during May 2010 - Jul 2010).

Better UX locations outside Las Vegas: Northern CA, Southern CA, Illinois.

Last time I was in las Vegas, I looked quickly at a machine in Bellagio & chatted with the guy playing next to me.
He said about 20 people had checked the machine before me.

I hope you never did the "creator" thing. I ran into one of those guys at the Hard Rock. He hustled some poor sap, and then had his associate (female) play off the multipliers. I called security on them, and he called me a few choice names and then left.

Those people are absolute scum.

I had someone do that to me a couple months back. I let it go right up until I got up from machine then called him on it lol. Even funnier is last night the vultures were swarming and one was very aggressive I was with a friend and playing off freeplay - I created multipliers - and kept switching games I made sure they were super high on quarter denom then acted as if I was getting up- leaving almost 200-400 in ev he was about to jump them I say back down played them all off and left lol I know I'm a jerk but they were being super aggressive towards people and even on barnyard poker

UX must work differently in LV, since a 1x1 bet will knock down all multipliers.



It worked exactly as described in April of this year when I was there, watched a guy do it for hours at I believe the Fremont on a higher denom play, so I just sat there and waited, his multiplier wasn't getting knocked down.

Would you care to tell me where this is occurring, assuming you physically went out and just tested it, including the Machine Type (UX, ASP2, FSP, SSP), and the cabinet/case it is found in?

Why is Exoter in red?



Because moderators of this forum don't seem to be unilateral with their judgement and bias, and have a real tendency to waver on the way that they impart their judgement, like not warning me about the rules while expressing my frustration, but warning others of personal attacks, while not warning others of personal attacks simultaneously.

Quote: Hunterhill

Yeah the Revel :)



The Revel is the biggest joke of an establishment in the AP community, from top to bottom.

Had a random meeting with Exoter175 tonight at the STL casinos. Cool guy, and curses less than on the forum apparently...haha Hopefully you did better than me after we parted ways!

We walked by an Ultimate X machine at Hollywood. Another vulture in the casino got 4 Aces off of it at nickels. Lucky SOB. We also saw a $2k royal hit minutes later. And later that night I also saw a young couple hit dealt 4 3's with a kicker with a 6X multiplier each on "Barnyard Poker" nickels for $720 total, so at least some people probably won. ;)



I ended up making just shy of 50% of that loss rebate back before I left, which was awesome. Hopefully you're keeping that machine I showed you hush hush, but absolutely tearing it up. Had a run on that machine in a different state tonight for about $173, made $402 for the day. I'm telling you, if you find the time to get yourself there during really busy hours, that thing will bring in some dough for you :P.

It was a pleasure meeting you tringlomane, and thank you very much for escorting me around and showing me that players club especially haha, assuming babs doesn't forever ban me for criticizing her for her lack of unilateral moderation, I'll shoot you a PM the next time we come to town.

PS, things changed and I don't believe we'll be out that way this weekend after all, unless it ends up being absolutely last minute.

Back to the high limit machines shut down:

Were they all shut down or just selected machines? I've seen high limit machines shut down at the request of a player to lock the machine while they take a break. Several casinos will lock a machine for up to 4 hours.



Revel AC and Borg are notorious for shutting down known AP machines during off-peak hours.

Quote: Hoodstar

It is almost always specifically Ultimate X. I'll walk in the high limit room and all the machines will be on except for that one. This is almost every time also, the only time I see it on is if someone is actively in the seat playing it.

Given Borgata's apparent attitude towards vultures this doesn't surprise me actually. Maybe an effort to keep fleas out of the high limit slot area?



Precisely.

Was recently in a known-for-sweat casino on the Strip which begins with C and ends in N. Went in the HL slor room, checked a few machines and found nothing. Next machine had a couple of mults, so I played them. Final machine, right next to it had a couple of mults. Put in ticket, deal button lit up at 10 unit bet. Changed it to 5 units and it went off. Called a slot attendant and she seemed somewhat clueless, but said this machine must require a 10 unit bet to play.

Any chance the EITS was watching and flipped some switch remotely to disallow a non-max bet? Anyone ever seen anything like this before? A new UX countermeasure?

A lot of their machines require a minimum bet. Look on the bottom of the screen.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!
