Ask The Slot Expert

19 May 2000

Dear John,

I booked a junket to Harrah's in Laughlin. How can I find out which games they have there that I would be willing to play? I really love to play Full-Play Deuces. Other than that, the only other one besides All American that I play is Jacks or Better.

Please let me know where I can find out, if you know, what kind of full pay games Harrah's has.

Thanks,
Rose Mary

Dear Rose Mary:

It's difficult to find a free site that has information about the games each casino has. A well-respected pay site that has been around for a while is the Video Poker Home Page (www.vphomepage.com) by Skip Hughes. According to that site, Harrah's in Laughlin has quarter, half-dollar, dollar, and five-dollar 9/6 Jacks and dollar 10/7 Double Bonus. There's nothing listed under Deuces Wild; that means that either the casino doesn't have them or the games they do have are not full pay.

To find other sites, try "laughlin video poker" in a few search engines and see that they find. You can also try the message boards at sites like www.bj21.com.

Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
John
