    OK, since ya'll are video poker wizards, maybe you remember this obscure game that was the first I ever hit a royal on and my memory of it is somewhat fuzzy (and of course I forgot to take a photo), though I can visualize the main screen in my head.

    It involved knights... like... royal knights I think? It involved multiple hands and if you hit 2 (I think) cards out of a royal, it would move those to a separate reel as you moved through your hands. If you got 3 or more cards out of the royal, it would spin that separate reel at the end of your dealt hands. There were knight graphics on both sides of the screen and I feel like it may have had a purple background?

    For anyone who goes to L'Auberge Lake Charles, there were two machines in a row in the VP section right behind where the bank of progressive VP is - so if you were sitting at the machines facing toward the back, the drink station is directly to your left.

    I remember this one at LDL Lake Charles. Haven’t seen it there in some time. I’ll be headed to LDL Baton Rouge soon, I’ll try and remember to look for it there but I sought they’ll have it.

    According to VideoPoker.com the only install is at the Borgata in AC

    Yeah, it never took off, and it's basically dead unfortunately. The last place in Vegas that I remember having it was MGM Grand. But the "Find Games in Casinos" at videopoker.com is pretty accurate, so I would think Borgata is the last left. :(

    Oh and @Figment76, "Barnyard Poker" as we discussed on Sunday...

    Gold Strike still has 4...lol

    Then Viejas in CA has 2.
    Pala in CA has 1.

    That's it.

    L’Auberge Lake Charles used to have barnyard too. Novelty games have disappeared from there over the last few years

    I know and have played at every single VP machine at LDL. That bank have the worst luck for me.
    But I seen many people get handpays in that bank.

    That's the only bank I end up with any luck at LOL

    Its the only place I've found the lower denom hot roll poker, but admittedly I never checked the center bar tops.

    It is also, I'm pretty sure, literally the coldest spot in the entire casino and I'm always freezing over there.

    Center Bar is no more. They completely demolished it.

    How long ago was it there? 2015? I probably didn't step foot in Hollywood Joliet for 5 years at one point.

    The typical casino did this with "Barnyard Poker" around 2015-2016, and I saw several do so: I believe @Cosmo_Slot_Vice_President also roughly did this at Cosmo.

    Installed it.
    Left it for ~3 months.
    Looked at the horrible coin-in stats.
    Got rid of it.

    I'm not sure why Gold Strike hasn't got rid of the game either. It's almost always idle when I would walk by. Maybe there is an addict on the game that doesn't revolve around my typical Tunica schedule. Probably someone who drinks coffee while they gamble. Haha
