Going over some of my notes.

ADVANTAGE PLAY ALERT!!!

I wrote down the numbers on a 6-spot progressive keno for NICKELS.

Now that I'm home, I see its return was 100.50%.

At 20-cents a pop, times what, (1000 hands an hour? I dunno), that's $200 coin-in, at 1/2%,

THAT'S A DOLLAR AN HOUR!

My lips are sealed. Don't anyone try to private message me. I ain't outting it.




The progressive full pay DW for nickels at Fandango is not a big secret, not like my secret keno play anyway, so I don't feel guilty in saying that it was at $308 when I was there. Hey, about a $3.50 an hour play. Not too shabby, if I'm ever a homeless person. (no offense to any homeless people who are regulars on this Board)

I did not know about the 3X-7X comps, though.



Factoring in the comp multiplier add somewhat towards an edge in return. At 7X, your comp dollars adds up pretty fast. 7X are special promotions, but not unusual to see 5X every week.

I "graduated" from Reno in 2006 or so. In other words, Reno got sick of me.

Two plays that I really should have bombed the s*** out of:

Atlantis, .25 FPJW w card of the day. About $150/hr with low variance, but you needed to have your card in the machine, which seemed like a problem for long term viability there (I think I was proven right)

Rail City, .25 10-play 10-6-4 DDB with a graveyard multiplier (3x, IIRC, .25 base) and every other royal double (you had 48 hours to hit the second one). That one I had pegged at a cool $180/hr. Oh yeah, the game had the turbo button, too. Had no problem getting on, too, strangely. There was a married couple, the wife flopped $10k and that ended it-after about 6-7 months. TBH, I just wasn't interested in screwing up my sleep pattern and living in Reno for the 3-6 months before the play went bye bye (with the expected trespassing afterwards) for $25K or so a month. The few hours I did play it (maybe 30 in all) I crushed it anyway.

I still go there every now and then. If you look around and carefully (one is a bartop. ironically) you may find something worthwhile to play (no inboxes please).

I live at Victorian Sq so Rail City is just down the street. But screw that place, they are not motorcycle friendly so I won't go there. Been there once to go eat at the Ale House and I never made it in the door. Security was telling me where I had to park my bike on a Sunday morning when the entire parking lot was empty.

Only place i will play when it comes to the machines is the WV. Loosest place in town based fron experience and my observations from others who keeps signing on their wins

I used to go to Rail City but it's gotten very tight with food and drinks and the clientele is low end. Once Affinity Gaming took it over, they have lost business. I agree, after 10 years of Atlantis, Peppermill and only 2 years of Western Village, WV is the only casino I show a sizeable gain. Once in 2014, I hit a TDVP for quad fours and a kicker, then 20 minutes later hit a royal. Both were $1 machines and progressive. I was there about an hour and left with the goods.

I have hit multiple signers on the same machine as well within 30 minutes at WV. A Royal for 3k and then 4 aces with a kicker for 2k. I like playing the machines that I know that is known to pay. I will wait for it to open up or I won't play.

I have found a $1 progressive DD 9:6 that's a couple of hundred shy of 6k at another casino. Might have to take a shot once it gets up to 6.

By the way, some good machines lost in the last few days at Atlantis, according to vpfree2. Downgrades at the Waterfall Bar. :-(

I saw that on vpfree2 as well. I don't think there is anywhere else in Nevada or elsewhere that one could play Double Bonus 10/7 progressive at $1 or at the $2 denomination. I have a trip planned there in a few weeks and I can't believe I won't be spending hours a day at the Waterfall Bar anymore. Looks like Atlantis has completely gotten rid of all 100%+ video poker at all denominations.

For clarification on my last comment, the $2 Double Bonus at Atlantis was not progressive. But it was great to be able to find this game at that denomination, particularly on comp multiplier days. Very sad to see it go.
