I wouldn't say they are not worth playing PERIOD. Given the right situation(adding in some type of promotion of course), they could be +EV. Unless you had specific information regarding the VP, I would find out what the state minimum payback was and use that when calculating the situation.Quote: VPBJ24
Hi everyone, this is my first post! I really love VP, so I bought a couple books on the topic. It was brought to my attention that some VP are Video Lottery Terminal aka fake/ not worth playing.
I wanted some clarification on how to determine whether the machines are fake before I go wasting my paycheck on them. I read that in New York State you have to be extra careful.
Casinos near me (upstate ny):
Finger Lakes Gaming Race track = racino = VLC?
Seneca Niagara/Creek = Indian = ?
Del Lago = Commercial = ?
Turning Stone = Indian = ?
I did some further investigation for Del Lago specifically, and there were primarily two types of machines;
*IGT Game King multi game *
*Wms / scientific gaming (multi hands up to 10)*
Extra info: For Del Lago at the best case scenario the pay tables calculated:
Jacks or Better
Ultimately, I would like to know if Del Lago or any of the other casinos have an actual RNG.
-Thanks so much!
Are you sure? I would think the genie only appears if there is no acceptable replacement in the deck. Like if you're dealt quads and toss one of them. Toss them all and you'll draw quads of a different rank.Quote: JB
... If there is a "match card bonus" or a genie/fairy/wizard helps you out, then it is fake video poker.

Similarly, in your example where you break a pair of jacks, there are two other jacks that could be drawn.
Of course that's no proof because you could have been destined to get trips. But if this happens every time, it's not RNG...
