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.

Our destination…the place we could fit the most for the least. That place was the all new Treasure Island at the Mirage. (AKA The OG Encore). And for a splendid night of debauchery, myself and 21 of my peers piled into a room for the night.
