The strip casinos are tighter than Fremont. Fremont are tighter than the outer properties.

Also, whichever casino I am at will have the tightest slots.

The return percentages on slots are all woking against you. There are better games to play, but if you want to play slots the strip is not the best place to play. However, you may just get lucky- it has happened before.

I play Video Poker almost exclusively. Wife plays slots.

It seems that she does much better when we go to casinos where the VP pay tables are better, This is , of course, downtown and off strip.

Learn to read video poker pay tables, and you will usually find looser slots.

Better yet, learn VP. It is a much more favorable game for machine players.

I've heard that El Cortez is supposed to be loose, however, I have never had much luck playing slots there. I really like the casino, just can't get any love! I am planning on hitting a few more off strip properties on my upcoming trip. I'll see if that gives me any love!

Slots wherever they are, it's really just a matter if the RNG comes up on a number that's a Winner when You happen to sit down and play. The casinos downtown and off strip have a slightly better "Payback Percentage" depending on the denomination. Roughly .6% better for pennies and 1.2% for dollars on average from the charts in "Strictly Slots" magazine. Of course these are numbers collected over the last month. In reality considering the small amount of play most of us are in for, you likely won't notice any difference. But you never know....

Here is a link to a list of LV Casino Payouts. I could not find a date related to it. Apprears that "down town" casinos / off strip casinos have higher payouts.

I know there is another link, but I can't find it.

Its impossible to find out the true payback percentage for any of the Vegas casinos.

I do believe the overall paybacks do vary with casinos and who owns what.

Its a juggling act for the Casinos to keep customers coming back.

About the only thing that is certain is the higher the denomination, the higher the overall payback. Meaning you will lose more money on penny machines and $25 machines will pay better

Not only whichever casino I'm not in at the moment, but also whichever machine I just walked away from. Those high-payout slots are slippery little buggers....
