I am sure people on this forum know that this is a horrible, "predatory" paytable. But I doubt the average tourist will know that. What does it say about CAESARS unlimited greed that they would even have this on the floor ?

Their website says:

When it comes to entertainment destinations, no one does it better than Caesars hotels and resorts. Whether youíre looking for dining, nightlife, relaxation, or some of the best casino gaming out there, Caesars has you covered.

I beg to differ. A 6-5 JoB paytable on a $ 5 denomination machine has to be some of the WORST casino gaming out there.

Holy crap! I've only seen 6/5 JoB on a cruise ship, and that was just 25c.

They have 6/5 JoB at McCarran, but they don't have the nerve to have it a $ 5 denom, just $ 1.

It'll be among the worst, that's for sure. Just grab a seat, buckle up and enjoy the race to the bottom. They put three zeroes on Roulette wheels now. Maybe they'll start having 6:5 with the fixed 500-FOR-1 Royal, and people will think it's a bargain because they only have to bet one credit.

(I have played 500-FOR-1 fixed games before, but that's because they were 9-6, which is 98.88%...best game on the floor for that bet level at this particular casino.)

WoO says that 6/5 JoB is 95.0 % return with optimal play. So, still better than most Slot Machines, right ? But horrible horrible horrible for VIDEO POKER.

Planet Hollywood (when it was Aladdin) used to have a really nice upscale high limit lounge (the London Club) on the mezzanine level complete with plunging neckline gowns for the female dealers (I actually dated one of the girls for a while), but ever since it went the way of Planet Hollywood I haven't seen much to get excited over there. Unless, does PH still have their go go girls dancing by the gaming tables? Do go go girls make up for poor payouts? Circa has those, now. But only on the regular floor, not in high limit.

At Circa high limit you may get a neck massage while playing. (The Bacchanal Buffet at Caesar's had something like that, from what I have been told.) I jump up out of my seat on winning hands too much to remain in my seat long enough to get a massage though.

Yes, much better than their video slots which run from 85%-88%.

I doubt anyone who plays games like this would ever know perfect strategy. If I ever had a reason to play it, I would just guess my best, rather than spend the time to squeeze out the extra value. With some plays I've seen (hold a pair and a high card?), the overall return might start to approach slots.

Note they don't say "best paying" casino gaming. They could be referring to the atmosphere in the casino.

I echo the previous comments that 6-5 Jacks at the $5 denom is truly shameful. Not that it is a good excuse, but I think this is either a mistake or the slot director doesn't know what he's doing.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
