I would have been livid.
I play mostly 1-2.00 machines. Been skunked with a 200. BR a few times but never with 5+ BR.
Thanks for the info. Will be curious to hear Joey's spin on VF, too. It is actually a bit closer than the Sands for me...but why would I drive PAST parx for such a small gaming floor?
I don't set the world on fire at parx, but can at least get on a great variety of machines, and be there in 35 mins.
~Never got a handpay!
Good luck Joey. 600 machines is definitely... skimpy!
If you don't play, you can't win.
I have been to the Valley Forge Casino twice this month. Sure they are small but they were not crowded at all. Everyone there is very nice and helpful. Granted you will never be able to take a picture of your wins because there was more staff than customers LOL. To me it feels like my own private casino! They have a varied amount of slots. Some of the latest like Grease and Tarzon and lots of the older machines too like WW2. Also the machines are pristine. No marks or crap all other them. I feel it is worth the entry fee. Anyone who is local should give a try. JMHO
Yes it was a "small" bankroll, however I'd rather take a shot at winning a big ticket prize than sitting there playing the quarter machines with a top prize of 5 grand. I've stuck $500 in a machine before and walked out with $20,000 on my last spin, so I'm kind of glued to these machines now!
well, sure, you can take a shot at it.
but you can't run $700 through a WOF (presumably it was a progressive, which generally means it has a lower return), hit nothing and then declare the casino sucks. traber is absolutely correct; the bankroll is pretty modest for a $5 machine. and your sample size is a drop in the bucket compared to the millions of pulls you might need to get an accurate sense for the true payback of the machine.
as for all the wiring and ethernet cables and such... every slot machine has that. the players club data is communicated to a "server," even for machines that are networked in a "server based" gaming environment. they could be server based machines, they could not be. but the presence of network equipment does not necessarily mean the machines are part of a "server based" gaming network.
