Will have a hundred free play to use in March. Where should I go and play? Slots only
Circus I assume.
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.
LOL, just shows ya how long it's been since I've been there!
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.
Lmao, silly question I have not found a loose one yet and that's after 20 years of las vegas
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
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.
Totally agree with some old slots at NYNY. I enjoyed the King Kong Empire machine I played last trip: https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?posts/1971576/
$1.25 max bet and you can get a lot of play out of it!
According to my win loss statement at mlife last year, the only casino I made a profit was Aria.
