Video poker is known as a game with a good math advantage to it. Optimal play can get you almost a 100 percent payback, as opposed to the 92 percent from slots.
But two people have hit really big this month at the Isle Casino & Racing.
Playing "Triple Double Bonus," the unidentified players hit for $100,000. The details:
They were in the high-limit area, which is $25 per push on the machine. To hit the jackpot, you have to max bet (5 times $5). So the $25 play hit four aces with a three, good for the big jackpot of 4,000 credits ($25 x 4,000 = $100,000). (This is updated.)
The Seminole casinos report they've had a good number of $100,000 winners, but by my anecdotal records, no one has won more at a parimutuel video poker machine.
