Mission, your review of the D is delightful, divine, dandy (can't think of any more adjectives beginning with D).

Very nicely ... done.

I failed to locate the full pay Joker Poker upstairs. I think the only possible machine I missed was the one with 10-cent NSUD. It was occupied by a derelict. Actually he may have been a vagrant, I'm not sure.



Thank you very much!

The Joker Poker is on the multi-game machine, if you're facing away from live Keno, it's on the far right.

Four Queens has the best coupons/promos, though...



I always stay at the 4 Q. Central location, good
layout of the table games, nice rooms, good
restaurants, easy access to get your car from
valet. I said before, I hate the D. I hated it when
it wasn't The D. The tables are crammed into a
small area and you feel like you're on top of each
other. The smoke is bad, and now the music is
wayyyyy too loud. It's loud even walking by the
outside.

Did you mention how loud it was in your review? I
didn't see it. Doesn't surprise my the room was a
sty, I feel that way about the whole casino.

Could you pretty please with sugar on top verify they have that exact game when you're there taking pictures?



You got it.

I assume you're referring to the bank of 10 machines, partially shown below:



I checked all 10 machines, and the schedule for nickels was 95.5%:



At the quarter level, the Joker Poker was 17/7 with 4700 royal (98.4%).

But if it's only one machine somewhere else with full-pay, then maybe I missed it.

I think mission may have played a 95.5% game without knowing it. Bob will love this...lol I am very familiar with this paytable. It is standard on many nickel STP/Ultimate X games. :(

A guy got a dealt natural royal on joker poker spin poker for $9000 today. First dealt natural royal I've seen in a long time. We had a couple of 940/18/7 pay tables but I think they are all 17/7 with the newer models in.



At least he wasn't doing what I was doing, because the app also offered Spin Poker too...

I got a Royal today on the 8th round of 5-play after downloading an app so I can play STP for play money on my phone, and on round 397, dealt quads with 5X...$%#%&$&$&#$&$^@#!!!!

F*** me running, you're right!!!

I remembered the paytable as best as I could and went up to the room and checked it on WoO, I thought I had it right, but I remembered the paytable wrong. I wanted to pull out my phone and go to WoO right there, but I remembered about electronic devices being illegal now.

Okay, the Joker Poker thing has to come out of my Review, but it's still my favorite game!

Does anyone know where I can find a good Joker Poker paytable?

I agree with everything about the Four Queens, except I didn't like Magnolia's and I don't know anything about their rooms.

The tables are a bit cramped, I think Four Queens smells smokier than The D, so I disagree with you on that.

The music is very loud on the first floor, but I'm pretty sure that is intentional, Vintage Vegas is pretty quiet. I've heard complaints about the Fremont Street Experience stage and noise from that, but all of that stuff ends at midnight and I wasn't bothered by any noise, anyway, could hardly hear it from the room.

Personally, I think the casinos and public areas are very nice at The D, definitely better than Four Queens. The public bathrooms at The D are definitely preferable to Four Queens, the former has an attendant in there more often than not.
