“Why doesn’t MGC do anything? No
one seems to be winning at **** casino any more. They’ve tightened up their
machines so nobody ever wins.”
There are a lot of factors that can
create this impression. In fact, MGC reviews casino revenues on a continuous
basis to ensure the casinos are operating within legal limits and paying the
correct amount in taxes. This data is available as spreadsheets on the MGC
official web site under Financial Information.
The Monthly Slot/Table Detail reports show the actual return for each slot
denomination and table game offered for all
casinos on a monthly basis. The data
is posted after it is audited by MGC. Each month these reports are accessed by many people wanting to know the exact numbers. Some gambling writers report stories each month on which riverboat gaming casinos are offering the "loosest slots".
Thanks to Gaming Enforcement Manager Les Hahn for this question and answer.
