I have had some good jackpots on Deuces/Jokers Wild. These machines were in A.C. several years ago. For some reason all of the casinos took them out ( 5 years ago ). When they started to change the machine to ticket machines.
The Taj-Mahal had a row of 8 machines $1.00 denomination 3 Tier Progressive. The 5 Wilds started at $10,000, the Nat. Royal started at $4,000, And the 4 deuces started at $125. I have hit the Royal several times and hit the 5 wilds for $14,932. That is the highest jackpot that I`ve have hit to this date. The progressive would rise very quickly because there were a lot of people that wouldn`t play max coins and spend the $5 . The highest amount that the 5wilds got to was over $33,000. I heard from one of the regular players that some guy came in off the street. He tried to put a wrinkle $20 bill in, after several times the machine excepted the bill and on the second hand hit the 5 willds.
It took me 5 years of complaining to the management to bring this game back. Last year Taj has put Deuces/Jokers Wild back on the floor. But, there all non-progressive. So I`ll have to keep complaining to make some of them progressive.
When the wild cards appear frequently you can get time on these machines to build up comp dollars.
