Suncoast has removed at least 20 video poker Game Kings and many groupings of four slot machines. The machines appear to be removed near the two main entrances to the valet and parking lot.

It doesnt appear if any table games were removed.

But the new empty space is very noticeable.

One group of ten VP machines featured games advertised as paying up to 99.8% or better and included 9/7 Triple Double Bonus and 8/5 Bonus. The 8/5 Bonus was available at 25-cents per coin.

I think the 9/7 Triple Double Bonus was also at 25-cents per coin. There is another bank of 9/7 TDB but these are upright machines. The VP machines that were removed were all slant tops.

Somebody found a glitch in the machines? I think it's just greedy casino executives chasing away VP players who wouldn't play 7/5 games.

I choose not to read much into it.
I see lots of casinos begin their floor layout rearrangements on the last Monday of the month.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I think it's the recession. Don't most casinos rent or pay a fee for machines?

If I had to guess, the game with the highest return was 9/5 Triple Bonus Poker Plus. My second guess would be Triple Deuces.

I can't stand the wording used by marketing: “up to [insert meaningless figure here] or more”. It cries out, “We don’t understand numbers and we hope the consumer understands them even less!”

I am never surprised when a casino removes video poker machines. They just don't earn nearly what video slots do.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

Are there any 100%+ VP games left in Vegas? That is without counting points or bounce back?

I don’t need specifics, just curious. Haven’t been back in about 8 years now.
Always have two boxes. One to think in, and one to think in out of the other box.

There were still some last year when I moved away.
