Thanks, that is what I meant. I corrected my original post.
I was thinking the same thing about the VP. Thanks for the report on the El. The area around it has made a huge turnaround in the past 5 years with all the clubs, bars and restaurants on Fremont East. I can remember walking to the Western just a few years ago and there being nothing on that block of worth.
Too bad the Gold Spike couldn't have ridden it out a little longer. It could have been center in the revitalization. I remember when I played VP there a few years ago (after the remodel). If you wanted to cash out you had to wait for a hand-pay. Seems to me that's the kiss of death for a casino. I'd like to know why they did it that way.
Beware of the short coin royal if you don't play the multi-strike mode.
Do you mean that you could be playing a 25 cent game, bet $ 1.25 on a single line, get a royal and NOT get 4,000 units?

I'm guessing it was because of the cost to add ticketing. It costs about $1,250 per machine just to license ticketing. That does not include the printer hardware or the ticketing systems software. They were probably looking at a minimum of $2,000 per machine.
