It’s getting harder to find full pay video poker in Las Vegas, but until the costs outweigh the benefits, I will continue to play. I cannot provide a comprehensive list of the best video poker in Las Vegas, as I did with Atlantic City. Fortunately, I have been going to Las Vegas for many years and know about most of the low denomination (25c or below) opportunities.
Video Poker Bar
Scott Roeben, founder of the Vital Vegas blog and podcast, asked me some questions about video poker strategy, during my interview at the live broadcast of Vegas Confessions Podcast in November. He followed up by interviewing me for the Vital Vegas Podcast and we spoke off the record about his quest to hit his first Royal Flush.
I have been on a quest to find the highest returning video poker for 14 years now, so I thought I’d make a list of the best video poker in Atlantic City.
But Borgata is a favorite of credit card reward enthusiasts for a very different reason: the ability to redeem Borgata gift cards for MGM M life Rewards Slot Play.
The B Bar at the Borgata is the only bar in Atlantic City that still comps top shelf drinks (or any drinks for that matter) for playing video poker or slots on the bar top machines. The beauty of this is that while you are being comped for your drinks, you are also earning comps that can be used for something else, like the $10 entry fee for the Amphora Lounge (if you’ve got a Black Label Card.) The machines also include full pay Jacks or Better!
I have some clarification to add to my Borgata Mlife post from last week.I played video poker again and the Mlife Express Comps, Slot Dollars and Tier Credits were updated in my account immediately. The Global Points were not, but the Mlife Desk had the correct session total in their records, when I inquired about it.
I played at the Borgata Atlantic City last week for the first time since my Mlife at Borgata post in February. In that update, I told you that the representative at the Borgata, that I was contacting after every single time I played, to have my numbers adjusted in line with the Mlife Earn Rates…
I have been writing about the Mlife program at the Borgata, since the transition from My Borgata Rewards in June. It was difficult to figure out the Mlife Earn Rates because the computer system is not tallying all the numbers correctly in everyone’s account and I could not confirm the earn rates that they gave me verbally, even though they were updating my account to these values.
Why NO Tier Credit for Spend at Borgata ? | Could it be that there’s a purposeful reason that there’s no Spend Credit at Borgata? Is the result of the transition from My Borgata Rewards to Mlife being a muddy mess a coincidence?
The Borgata has always thrown some extra perks to their lower level players during slow times and it’s nice that Mlife is continuing that tradition.
