We're not sure if we've discovered a trend or if all magic roads are currently leading to the Vegas suburb of Summerlin. In December, we alerted you to former Strip magician Rick Thomas's return to the Vegas scene. And, he chose to stage two gigs off-Strip at the Suncoast. Right next door, at the Rampart Casino we just discovered that magician Michael Turco will be performing February 15 in the Grand Ballroom.
Turco's Magic & Mayhem show was recently an afternoon show at the Saxe Theater in Planet Hollywood's Miracle Mile Shops. A former America's Got Talent contestant, Turco left his PH spot in October. And in the unusual, but predictably musical chair world of magicians, Nathan Burton moved from the Flamingo to take his place in the Saxe Theater. Still keeping up? Nathan Burton was also a former America's Got Talent contestant.

Casino gambling for us started with the Big Six wheel and extended to other table games like blackjack and craps. It wasn't until a couple years ago that we started playing video poker. We didn't know anything about the strategy, but our friend was getting comps hand over fist from only playing video poker and we wanted some of that love. Like we did with the other games, we learned proper strategy for playing video poker and learned what the difference in games were.
Our preferred video poker game became 9/6 Jacks or Better. The 9 is the payout for a full house and the 6 is the payout for a flush. These are the hands that fluctuate and change odds for video poker. 9/6 JoB (as the cool kids call it) has the most simple strategy for playing properly. This also maximizes how our money is spent. Unfortunately, it's hard to find this game on the Vegas Strip so we've learned some other game strategies.
We tend to play less video poker on The Strip because we can't find our preferred game. Last week, we were exploring the Summerlin suburbs and happened upon Rampart Casino. After a quick check of the best video poker payout resource, vpFREE, we found that they have our favorite game 9/6 Jacks or Better in a new format. Sure, we could play one hand at a time, but what fun is that when you can play 10 hands at once?!
