Let’s be honest: There’s a reason you can’t travel more than two blocks in this town without running into a video poker bar (hint: It doesn’t take long for those “free” drinks to end up costing you triple figures!). That said, if you think tonight’s the night you’re going to finally turn a couple of Andrew Jacksons into a handful of Ben Franklins, you at least should give yourself a fighting chance. So bypass the neighborhood tavern and belly up to a bar at Red Rock Resort. Unlike the corner pub, these bar-top machines have favorable pay schedules with progressive royal flushes attached. Your best bet: 8/5 Bonus Poker, which offers a return rate of slightly more than 99 percent—or, in other words, your “free” drinks have a much better chance of being a lot cheaper!
