I'm new to VP and have been playing 9/6 JOB but after seeing the odds of full pay Pick-Em I decided to try it.
I'm curious what you all think about the better game to play? Given the odds of hitting a royal are better in JOB, I'm wondering if it's better to play versus the better overall odds and variance with Pick-Em?
Thanks!

Pickem is better than Job,with full pay pickem even if you take the royal away it still has a higher return than 9/6 Job.Iirc pickem is 99.62 without the royal.

Pick'em was a very popular game here in the Midwest and East coast. I remember playing this game all the time. Very easy to play and well done on the Bally Gamemakers, however, I don't see it anywhere now in Ohio. I've heard Canada has it but it is classified as slim Pick'em as the three of a kind was reduced. I also don't see the game in Vegas even though we could always could on going to a few locations that had the game.

The only place in seen FP Pick 'Em around here in Michigan is Kewadin SSM. That was a few years ago though. GT and MGM used to as well but no longer do.

Which is better? Depends on what you want to get out of it and personal preference.

Not full-pay, but the only places I remember seeing pick'em in LV is at various bars around town. I don't remember seeing it in an actual casino.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll have to check the type of machine to see if it's Iirc.
I'm playing at Mohegan Sun and they have Pick-Em on a few different machines. I did check the pay table against the Wizard's and it is full pay.

Vpfree2 shows full pay Pick-Em available for quarters on 17 machines at Fremont, but points are probably earned at only one-third the usual rate. And the usual rate is not good.

The database lists a few machines remaining in small-town Nevada. Those are probably the old Bally machines.

Mohegan Sun has a complicated player's club. It looks like slot club points are only redeemable for comps, designated "momentum dollars." But points are not awarded for full-pay video poker. Full-pay does earn tier points, and probably mail/bounceback offers, which may be redeemable for free slot play.
