Nickel 9/6 JoB found in Tunica

21 April 2008

This is in regard to a question/answer about nickel VP in Vegas from 4/7/08. I can't speak for Vegas but at the Fitz (now hipped from the former Fitzgeralds) in Tunica they have a bank of eight Game King VP machines that include true 9/6 JoB. Their placement is questionable considering they are right beside/behind a bank of very busy independent quarter Flaming Sevens progressive machines that rarely get above $400.

The weekends that I have been there it has been hard to get to play them though. Either the locals are hammering them or visitors in the know find them. Either way it's hard in Tunica to just spend a quarter and still get bona fide 99%+ payback.

Thanks for sharing your discovery.

It's hard (if not impossible) no matter where you are to get a near breakeven bet on a quarter wager. I'd double-check those pay tables carefully to ensure that they truly are 9/6 Jacks or Better. Based on the amount of play you say these machines are getting, it looks like they really are 9/6 Jacks machines.

These machines are a great way to get a lot of play from a small bankroll. And as I said in my response to the earlier question, the odds and long-term payback on 9/6 Jacks or Better machines are the same regardless of their denominations.

Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
John
