Archived from groups: rec>travel>cruises (more info?)

While my wife, who plays the slots, seems to lose money in record time
wherever she gambles, I was wondering, if former employees have ever
devulged the odds on the slots on cruise ships ? -- I heard somewhere that
in Vegas that the payout is in the range of about 95% & that the chip that
determines the payout is factory set -- are the odds the same on a cruise
ship, or are they set, either at the factory or onboard, at some other
payout percentage ??? Any help will be financially appreciated -- LOL

The payout rate is set at the slot machine factory. When the cruise line
approaches a slot machine manufacturer, they are given a catalogue of
available payouts on a type of machine, and make their selection from that
catalogue. cruise lines do not release the payout rates on their slots, but
I suspect their payout rates are around 92%, which is typical for areas with
little competition such as Indian casinos, or riverboats in the Midwest.
When I was on the Carnival Valor, I noticed a lot of people seemed to be
doing well on the slot machines. I was trying to get rid of two nickels by
throwing them into a nickel slot, and wound up winning $0.50. Since I
figured two quarters were better than two nickels, I cashed out then.
