I know which one I vote for! Oh wait, you said HE was the asshole...never mind.
Quite often I see people crowding the "old machine style" progreessive bank at $1100 when the "new machine" bank is over $2000 and is vacant. One time I asked a player why? "Those new machines just take all my money"
If he did not fully understand VP and was more in the slot mode - it could make sense. He could be thinkig the damn thing just keeps building the progressive by not awarding anything along the way. Good theory for a slot. Bad FACT for VP.
Newer machines also often play a bit faster and often have worse paytables than the older machines. So his reasoning on newer machines eating his money faster could be based on that experience.
In my personal experience, since first royal in 2011, 4 royals have come on "old machines" and 4 have come on "new machines". YMMV.
I generally like the old machines. not those with stuck buttons or broken screens you likely find in Plaza or El Co though.
What is the difference between an old machine and a new machine?
When I refer to old machines, I generally mean machines that aren't the latest versions of IGT machines that have appeared in the last few years.
