Loose Slots in Tunica
by Jen Cuthbertson
You have all seen the hype from casino after casino. We are the loosest, 98% paybacks, Biggest jackpots won here. All of the advertising and trying to sway you here or there can be confusing and overwhelming for the casino visitor. Hopefully I can help shed some light on the hype for you.
You the player, in Mississippi, is at the mercy of advertising. Mississippi Gaming Commission prohibits the casinos from making their payback percentages or hold percentages public record.
They can however advertise certain machines to have X amount payback %'s. These are the expected random paybacks over the life of the machine. You have seen them... 98% payback signs over a room, an area, or a machine itself. It doesn't mean if you put $10 in you will receive $9.80 back it means over the life of the machine. The Gaming Commission protects you the player by setting guide lines for the casinos to follow when they advertise such animals. Pay attention to exactly which machines are marked with the 98% payback. A casino cannot afford to make every machine in their casino at that payback. It's a lost leader like milk in the grocery store.
In 2002 Tunica-ms.com published and endorsed a nickel video slot survey by Dr. Marsha Ness in conjunction with Michael Shackleford the Wizard of Odds from Las Vegas. Publishing the survey was helpful to players and very controversial with the casinos, which carried an extreme mix of consequences. A special acknowledgment goes to Dr. Ness and Michael Shackleford for their time and work necessary to provide players with the information. It was our belief that, you the player, would be interested in where the Tunica Casinos stand behind the hype.
Before we reveal the numbers I want to make clear that LUCK is the biggest factor in slot machine gambling. You need to chose the casino that "fits" you. In my opinion there is no wrong casino in Mississippi. Each casino has something special to offer for all of us.
As we read through the numbers and some of the articles on gaming, I want you to keep this simple thought in mind. When asked, Frank Legato of Global Gaming, slot expert and author of . How to Win Millions Playing Slot Machines: ... Or Lose Trying (Scoblete Get-The-Edge Guide) "When is the best time to leave a slot machine?" his reply was simple and to the point. "When you are not having fun, Gambling is entertainment."
Also I would like to mention that since the 2002 survey we found casinos to be more attentive to their nickel video slot payouts and found more loose slots in Tunica. Because Casino Slot machine inventory is constantly changing, so is the payback results. Our findings are only a guide and done my a system which can only guarantee accuracy within 10%. We hope you find it helpful or at least interesting. We applaud the competitiveness of the casinos and their desire to be fair in both gaming and advertising.
