Played several hours at the Palms on a 25 cent 3-play 9/6 JoB. It was my first visit, and I easily and quickly gained enough points for a free buffet, which was as good as most. The machines I played on were in good repair--all the lights worked, no buttons stuck--and was comfortable. There is an abundance of good machines, though I didn't try any of the 100%+ machines, which don't earn as many points and aren't eligible for promotions (though I'm not sure what the implications are). I really enjoyed the Palms and highly recommend it to video poker players.
Computers were down when I arrived, so check in was delayed and I couldn't check my B-connected points. I assume this is rare. The room was as good as most and better than some. I slept well there, which is saying something. I played mostly dollar 9/6 progressive JoB at the bar near the sports book. Most of the machines were silent, but I found one at the back side of the bar that signaled winning hands. Machine was comfortable, staff was friendly and I had a good (and successful) time.
A lovely, friendly casino with a good selection of machines. Most 10/7 DB require $3 in for one point, but at the bar the 9/6 JoB award one point for $1. Breakfast buffet is excellent with the best omelet chef I've ever met (Manny, off Monday). Hotel is quiet but request a south-facing room away from I-15.
