Thank you so much for that information.  We do just bring the money to have fun.    


I always ‘felt’ that the payout was less, but sort of assumed that it was just me.  It is interesting to know that the regulation might make the payout less.  I am even more suspicious of that ‘good’ payout on the first night.  Is the rate of payout better on the first night to get everyone keen???  


Find that the poker machines that we would not touch at home are the best machines in ship casinos have been better to play because you spend at a much slower rate.  

Slot machines are supposed to be factory set for desired payout and here in the U.S. they can not be changed. For instance one machine can be designed for 80% payout and another 90% and that is what it will be for the life of the machine.  However, it always concerns me on cruise ships these settings may possibly be changed.  For example, you will notice a slot tech change the settings to tournament mode on a bank of machines used for their slot tournament. (tournament mode produces higher payouts). Once the tournament is over, you will see him open each machine and change it back.  I agree, it is suspect to me why first and last night seem to have more winners on most sailings.

Honestly I couldn't care less what you or your wife do on a cruise or anywhere else for that matter. It does not affect me in any way, shape or form so if you have a problem with the way I run a slot pull, just don’t join. 




That's fine, but there is a rule against what you are doing. Don't say otherwise.
