    I am trying to understand what they mean by Theoretical Win for their slot points. If I am playing slots with a payback of say 90% what would my theoretical win be on $1,000 coin in? Thanks.

    $900. 90% of $1000

    Thanks. But that would mean you earn more points by playing better games. Video poker will give you more points because it's 6% of theoretical win. Can that be right???

    They use "theoretical win", but they are talking about THEIR theoretical win ( or your theoretical loss, if you prefer ). Their marketing dept. is just trying not to use the word loss

    No.

    The theo is their win.

    So $100 in that example.

    VP would be less.

    I think V/P uses "theoretical win" as a euphemism for "theoretical loss".

    All casinos do.

    Theoretical loss is a player created term.

    Call it whatever you want.

    The casino is a BUSINESS. They are trying to figure out how much money you will leave with them. That is all that matters.

    And theory is only theory. NOT REALITY.

    Most people that play a 90% theo slot machine often leave with zero dollars. Not 90%.

    And many that play BJ at 2%, leave with nothing.

    figure that out?

    With Mlife changing most of their slots to $10 a point now it seems like Grazie is a better program. I also like how you can tell what the payback is on their slots. I get that it is just a theoretical number, I just was trying to determine what the point structure is. They are the only ones that have it not based on coin in.

    You have to measure all the factors. $5 a point, $10 a point, $30 a point does not matter. What matters is what you then get in return.
