    As they say, "the proof is in the pudding". Here is a link from the N.J. Gaming Board that shows the 75k & over jackpots won in A.C.. You'll see that the detailed information shows that nearly all of the vp jackpots are won on IGT machines.

    Wow, Slotbender, that's a lot of big jackpots in AC. We love AC and can't wait to get back. We will be in Atlantic City July 8th through 12th if anyone wants to meet up and have a drink at the diamond or 7 star lounge. We will be staying at Caesar's and would love to say hello to any Slot Fanatics that happen to be in AC while we are there.

    Do you remember the manufacturer of the game? The one time I got a dealt royal on an IGT machine, I wasn't even allowed the opportunity to **** it up. It just spit out a $1k ticket (Flamingo 2006).

    I've since come to believe 5 cards on the deal, 5 replacements for the draw. Neither method makes any difference mathematically., but the 5 and 5 method seems more reliable and speedy without errors.
    That's all folks!

    I think that was the way it was done 25-30 years ago, not sure today. Have heard its a
    constant running random number generator, but there are many Companies that make VP machines so all might not use the "RNG method".

    Either way is possible, either way the rng is constantly cycling, either way it doesn't matter if you press deal or draw, so it's impossible to say or prove either. The ten card deal seems less error prone and assures hands can be completed quickly and without card duplication errors. I'm told on the video poker site the other method is used and there I've had many problems completing hands. The ten card method gives me peace playing by not believing the draw cards were my fault at that moment. Unless there was evidence either method is used, we're free to believe either. Slots determine everything with the push of one button, so why not video poker I think.
    That's all folks!
