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.



I made my first trip ever to Reno a few weeks ago and the one thing I was going to make sure I got done was to see the famous Atlantis. I even played a little 10-7 DB progressive. And now they took them out. I feel like I jinxed it. lol I'm sorry.

Although there appears to be some difference of opinion as to how attractive certain Video Poker machines are, it does appear that casinos try to shuffle certain machines around or try other measures to make the machines available to 'the public' but less desirable to these dedicated advantage players who seem to hog them.

Of necessity, Vegas is probably the most interested place in going against 'slot machine sharpies' but smaller operators in Reno will certainly eventually get tired of feeding sharpies instead of the general public.

I think those 10-7 progressives were there since McCarran was Senator.

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.




I checked a lot of meters while I was there and 1/4% was very common. That's ok on all those good paytables around town but not on 9-6 DDB and lower. A 1/2% should be minimum on 9-6 DDB. Just my opinion.
