best video poker machines?

I haven't played much video poker in the past, but I'm interested in trying it out next time I'm in town. I'm curious if these "full pay" machines I've read about actually exist, and where I can find them. I am referring to the 9/6 Jacks or Better machines, but if you have suggestions for other good video poker machines like dueces wild, I am interested as well. I am looking for specific locations like "at NYNY right behind the sports book" as opposed to vague statements like "try downtown." Ideally around the center strip area as that is where I'll be staying.

Also if anyone knows a good online strategy good they could point me to, that would be awesome as well.

Thanks!

I challenge anyone to tell me where a full-pay 9/6 JOB machine is on the Mid-Strip area that isnt in a high limit area....I know of none, not anymore, that is at least I found none in Feb'07. There dissapperance has occurred over the last 18 months or so.

HINT: Harrahs purchase of Ceasers...IP....Flamingo...Ballys etc.

You can find them downtown at MSS at the bar, among other places. And I also need to see one in the Vegas Club before I believe it....they are not there anymore despite what websites report.

Bank of $5 9/6 JOB at the Wynn . . .I think there were 8 machines, maybe ten, I think 5 of them were 9/6.

There was also a $1 JOB 9/6 machine at the Wynn . . . but can't remember exactly where.

Thanks everyone - I will check out these websites, and see if I can find these $1 machines at the Wynn.

Any more suggestions, keep them coming.

Just curious what do you guys mean by 9/6 and full pay machines?

Do these machines always pay 100% or something?

Not 100% return specifically, but it means a machine which offers the best potential return for that type of machine. For example a Jacks or Better machine that pays 9 credits for a Full House and 6 for a Flush is considered a Full Pay machine I believe.

Check out: …wikipedia.org/wiki/…Full_pay_games

9/6 JOB is a %98.5 payback There are some thad do pay over %100 in the long term. 10/7 double bonus, Deuces wild with 5-1 for 4 of a kind. Both can be found downtown.

I have not found any 9/6 at Las vegas club at less than $1 level.

Quarter 9/6 are at the rear of Fitzgeralds by the checkin.

Quarter 10/7 double bonus are at the California to the rear next to the exit toward Main Street Station.

The most quarter 9/6 are at the Gold Coast. They can even be found at the bartop

Same with Southpoint.

Gold Coast has 9/6 Jacks or Better machines all over the casino for as low as twenty-five cents. Most (if not all) are the multi-denominational/multi-game machines, so you can find them throughout the casino floor. If you play nickels, it is only 8/5 JOB, so up the ante to a quarter to get 9/6. It was my first time playing after training at freeslots.com and I had a great time, but the best I did was four of a kind.... Oh well, maybe next time....
