Or play one credit at a time, sloooowwwly . . .



Good point! I'm usually one to say to always bet max coins in video poker, but being forced to play is an exception.

Expected loss at 5 coins = (1-0.989801)*5 = 0.0510 coins.
Expected loss at 1 coin = (1-0.978316)*1 = 0.0217 coins.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Oh, my, I don't think you could be more wrong!

I am willing to bet just about anything that all four $5 machines will be taken at 11:59pm on Sunday.

We checked every machine last summer. Not one accepted it.

Did you specifically check the Sportsbook Bar? And the machines on the 3rd floor outside bingo? I believe free play can be downloaded on those.

According to vpfree2.com, "Free play cannot be downloaded on most video poker machines, but OK at Sportsbook Bar. However, I've known that site to be outdated lots of times."

vpFREE2.com is crowdsourced, so if it's out of date, that means video poker players using the site aren't letting them know what updates need to be made.

My GF and I were just in Vegas a couple of weeks ago and can confirm that the VP machines at the bar next to the book DO accept freeplay. I think the paytable was 8/5 JOB, and the other machines not at the bar were full pay 9/6. We took advantage of the new player $500 loss promo and I did quite well. The lady at the promo desk even told us that we could use our free play on the machines at the bar.

Put PG on a machine early, maybe noon on Sunday. Bathrooms breaks only, someone cover for him. All night, no food, then put another team member in so he can go have some lovely lunch on Monday.
