MD Pols messed it up from the Start!
This was all due to the Pols insisting that all the casino Slots be run centrally by the MD State Lottery, These are Class II machines. All the payouts are determined the same as a Lottery run by the State. They are all hooked up to the central MD State Lottery system. They are Not Class III or what are commonly called RNG machines. With a Class II machine as here in MD you are playing in a Lottery Pool with everyone else who is playing and those Odds are set by the State. The only figure the MD State Lottery publishes is "Prizes to Players" overall which is 59.5%, that Stinks! That's why I won't play here.
Class III, RNG machines such as in LV and AC all run on their own Random Number Generator chips. They are Independent gaming machines. They also have a "Payback Chip". The casinos will vary their Payback Percentages for machines with different denominations. IE a Dollar machine may "Payback" 97-98% of what is fed into it over the life of the machine where the Penny slots may return 87-88% or so. They usually vary their Payback Percentages to compete with other casinos as well. Whose Slots are "Looser"? Not that you will notice much difference but in LV the Downtown & Off-Strip casinos are usually set a percentage point or so "Looser" than the ones on The Strip.
If I was a casino owner/corporation, I would tell the State to stick it! You already want 67% of the Take, you want the machines on Your system and controlling it all, You pay for them!
