I should have mentioned that in my write up. Thanks.



I figured that out watching the video. Seems consistent with other ultx.

Dunking donuts? Never mind. Sad.

A real doughnut bakery open 24/7 would kill on Fremont street. Huge moneymaker.

It is a Dunkin Doughnuts outlet. Nothing special. I've yet to find a respectable doughnut place in Vegas.



You and me both. I stopped by a Pinkbox a while back getting lost from GVR to my house and it was awful. Donuts always looks good but more times then not I am quite disappointed in the taste. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear it.
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

Wouldn't have to be big. Could even be in a food truck. Should be open kitchen, counter, no tables necessary, walk up service. Make old fashioned donuts and holes with a dozen toppings, fresh. The smell alone will drive business to you.

Don't bother with raised unless you want to do a hot fresh Krispy Kreme thing, but what you're missing was the good recipe they used to use 50 years ago. Now it's all air and cheap shortening with a bitter aftertaste. But the good recipes are still around.

Only in Vegas would there be a strip club named Little Darlings and a donut shop named PinkBox.

How so? I'm confused.

Unless you're playing at the Cosmopolitan, 99.73% of UX games don't require a max bet to play off a multiplier.

Besides the one machine at Cosmo, I only know one other UX with minimum bet - Twin Pine (Northern California)

I was in Vegas for 3 weeks. M Resort and Cosmo have UXBS. Not sure where else (wasn't in Vegas to gamble).

In Southern California, early December 2016,
Harrahs added 3 UXBS, then Barona added 7 UXBS (one for $1, $2, $5, $10), and Viejas added 7 UXBS.
Haven't checked all the casinos in Jan yet.

It's really fun to get a whole bunch of 12Xs for 4-8 hands. :-)

Five Star UX machines at Tropicana require max bet. Although it's a single line game, so play until you lose a hand.


I came up with a way to analyze UX, or at least for a single strategy. Essentially, you enter the base pay plus the return from multipliers for each hand (ie, 8/6 BPD a FH would be 8/2+11*0.985), or something wonky. I still can't figure out how to do it even though I started a thread showing how to do it. :( Then just keep doing it until the return is steady and not changing.

I think it's the same method JB used, or similar to it. Tringlomane has done it several times with different paytables.


With this game, it's a bit different, because another qualifying hand makes the rest of the next-hand multipliers go to 12x. You can still do it, I'd think, it'd just be a bit more challenging.



Perhaps the first step would be to just see how regular strategy fares in the UXBS. If that's an amount one is willing to give up in EV, then that's good enough. If it's not, then do more work!

And a restaurant staffed with mostly cute young gals called the Pink Taco.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Yeah, the 12X promotion aspect is fun. I'd be curious how much of the return comes from the bump-up-to-12X.
