playing video poker at the bar

Sitting at a bar in a Las Vegas Casino and having a drink while playing some video poker, is an enjoyable time for many players.  The drinks are free with zippy service and the possibility of good hit is a good combination to entice anyone.   If you can find a video poker machine with a good pay table at the 25¢ level, it’s a great deal for low limit gamblers.

 As many regular video poker players know, you can tell the video poker machines payback by looking at the pay table.  One of the most common video poker games available with a good payback is 9/6 Jacks or Better (JOB) and it can be found in some bar top locations.  You can identify a 9/6 JOB machine by looking at what a full house and a flush pay in the 1 credit column of the pay table.  A full house pays 9 and a flush pays 6.  9/6 JOB has a payback percentage of 99.65% if you play correctly.

 The casinos in Las Vegas that offer 9/6 Jacks or Better at only 25¢ in bar tops are Gold Coast, Main Street Station, Skyline, Silverton and Rampart.  All places offer .1% cash back with a players’ card, except Skyline. 

 The Silverton machines also have a progressive royal flush and straight flush, so this is probably the best deal of them all. 

 Main Street Station is also a strong play with the free scratch cards they give you for every 4 of a kind that you hit.  The scratch cards win should average out to about $2 a card over the long run.
