    It's not a MGM property anymore.

    And looseness of slots is hard to judge. Some people I go with do real well on a machine right beside me while I'm peeling hundies like they're onions.

    Play where you feel comfortable and that has the games you want to play.

    This might be a thread for the “Vegas After Dark” section.

    Circus Circus wasn't part of MLife either. It was MGM's "red-headed stepchild".

    Considering Nevada doesn't publish individual casinos' returns (bastards), it's definitely hard to tell.

    If @ffejry doesn't want to gamble on things like $5 slot machines or video poker *cough*, I would try to find something like an IGT "Winner's Choice" machine. Those have a 92% minimum payback. Also every IGT media sheet I have seen of "Hot Roulette" games are 90% minimum.

    Unfortunately, I can't tell you any MLife casino in particular that has those slots. :(

    If I had a LOT of money and wanted to maximize return, I'd suggest picking a place at the bottom tier of MGM properties and find the oldest-looking 3-reel machine you can find, under the theory that over time, old machines get pushed down the property ladder, and that the casino doesn't bother changing the payback %. So a 10 year old machine might be set to a 94% payback while a new machine for the same game might only be set to 90%.

    But working with $100, it doesn't really matter. You won't get enough spins in to really get any benefit.

    I'd say just go to whatever MLife property is closest, then find a Double Diamond and play $10 or $25/spin (or even $100) and hope you get lucky.

    I have tried that theory and it just hasn't worked for this fella - I never look back to see if the granny taking over my machine 3.2 seconds after I left got the handpay after all my effort...

    NYNY has been lucky for me.
    Use the 3 pull rule and find a good one.

    I played at least 5 times more at Mlife than at CET. Never get a handpay on slots at Mlife. At CET, I got multiple handpays at Caesars and Paris.
    I am talking about slots.
    On Video Poker, completely different story.

    And it was never an Mlife property.

    I don't always succeed with the "go big with freeplay" angle, and I don't do it 100% of the time, but I did hit for $12k on a $25 machine and two or three times I've hit for 5 credits on a $100 machine.

    Well, uh, in that case, prolly the Egg Salad Bar.

    Or NYNY. A $20 always seems to last more than one beer there, unlike MGM or Mandalay.

    Agree on New York New York. The Wonder 4 Tower machines love me there. I can play for hours on a hundred bucks and almost always make a tidy profit. Mirage and Mandalay were the worst for me
     
    Need my next trip to Vegas=-hurry up and get here!

    For picking a random slot, I probably play at NY NY too. Their slots are so old that I feel like I'm in a time warp. And it's not a guarantee, but I do believe that older slots are more likely to pay better.

    The older ones also tend to have lower minima, so your $20 (or whatever) will last longer even if it's not consistently paying.

    One idea would be to dump the hundred at MGM into a dollar majestic lion machine. The other option might be to split the hundred into 5 twenty dollar sessions in 5 different machines.

    According to my win loss statement at mlife last year, the only casino I made a profit was Aria.
