Steve Bourie, from the American Casino Guide book, and his wife, Michelle, show video from one of their video poker sessions at Harrah’s Resort and Casino in Lake Tahoe, Nevada in June 2021. They were playing 50-play, 25-cent, jacks or better, with a 9/6 pay table. They were making max bets at $62.50 per hand (50 hands at $1.25 per hand) and their starting balance on the machine was $523.75.
Their three-day weekend stay (Fri/Sat/Sun) at the hotel was free and their goal was to put about 500 points on their players club card to keep getting more free room offers, as well as any other benefits offered by the casino for their video poker play. Michelle plays the game and Steve gives commentary on the session as it is played.
