This might be the pot calling the kettle black, but what about big odds bets in craps. Is that not exciting enough for you? I think Trump Plaza has 10x.

I think a fun game would be a multi-hand poker machine like 100 hands or something. One spin, you'll get at least something back, or maybe you'll hit a royal or two.

Odds bets don't have a whole lot of variance on them, though, paying 2:1 at most. A multi-hand poker machine seems to be missing the point entirely.

At roughly a 2.7% edge, even 8/5 JoB is a better bet than most slots. A one-way bet at single-zero roulette is about the same edge, and a higher variance, but good luck finding a table for less than $50 a pop. I know of a virtual single-zero one with a $1 minimum, but one- and two-way bets are underpaid, so you lose that variance.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

The problem with these are that they usually don't fit the OP's requirement of a "smart bet" in many casinos. I personally haven't found many find 50/100 line games that pay much more than 97% in most places (Midwest/Tunica/Vegas Strip). The best one I have seen is at Horseshoe Hammond (99.96% Deuces), and that's at $5/hand. The next best one I've played is at Casino Royale of all places...lol (98.91% Deuces). Having a dealt royal on a multi-line machine was pretty cool though. And any dealt quad would also be a pretty big win in ahiromu's case.

Roulette would be a perfect bet, something like $50 on one number, but it just isn't all that fun for me.

Last time I checked, Trump Plaza is 5x and Bally's is 10x. If I'm having a really good trip, I like to make it to a 10x table and try my lucky ... we'll see how that goes.
