I just read the article on the loosest slots and looks like Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Mesquite had the highest cumulative payback percentages exceeding 100%. Reno also scored higher then Las Vegas. The article also talks about the take by the casinos and how it has increased over the past few yeasr with pennies having some of the worst payback percentages which really wasn't a surprise. They also mentioned that they payback percentages for quarters and dollars hadn't changed much over the years and remained fairly steady. Once again North Las Vegas had better payouts then the strip and then it was downtown. The strip appears to improve once you start playing dollar, five dollar and 25 dollar machines. Here is the percentages by denomination: As of January 2015 1 cent slots Downtown Las Vegas 89.8& Las Vegas strip 87% North Las Vegas 91% 5 cent slots Downtown Las Vegas 93.5% Las Vegas strip 92.2% North Las Vegas 96% 25 cent slots Downtown Las Vegas 95.6% Las Vegas strip 91.3% North Las Vegas 95.4% 1 Dollar slots Downtown Las Vegas 96% Las Vegas strip 93.3% North Las Vegas 96.8% 5 Dollar slots Downtown Las Vegas 96.7% Las Vegas strip 94.7% North Las Vegas 83.2% (note they had very few of this denomination type of machine) 25 Dollar slots Downtown Las Vegas Not Applicable Las Vegas strip 93.6% North Las Vegas Not Applicable Megabucks Downtown Las Vegas 48 slots 104.6% Las Vegas Strip 209 slots 98.2% North Las Vegas 22 slots 100.2% I didn't put the the other locations in such as Reno and Lake Tahoe but it appears their percentages are much higher then Vegas but fewer machines in the higher denominations. So there you have it. If you playing in Vegas and want to find the loosest slots probably the strip although beautiful and exciting may not be the best choice if you want to make your millions playing slot machines. However I am a die hard strip person so I guess I will take my chances but plan on upping my game to the higher denomination machines. I would love to hear your thoughts on this?
