Put your money in a paper shredder, the odds are probably better.

have worked for a casino around the slots and the ones here are not very generous. but remember these things. even a 98% payout machine is making money and casinos pay for the entire casino and hotel(this is years old info) and the tables and everything else is profit. doesn't stop me from gambling but i don't go often and usually in locals joints in nevada. my objective is to get as many drinks as possible for my money.

Never had any luck with the slots here. Seems the indian casinos aren't regulated with their slots the same way vegas ones are.

Learn to count cards and play blackjack. That's your best bet here.

That's always my plan. I put $5 in the penny machines and play 1 line when the waitress comes up and another when she comes back with my drink.

My wife and I play mostly at Spirit Mountain, seems to do better for us then Chinook Winds.

We went to Spirit Mountain yesterday and came home with almost as much as we left with. Since we go for the entertainment value that was not bad for a nice drive and 4 hrs of amusement.

They don't seem to be as generous as they used to be and it seems that timing can be a benefit to you. We like to go on Sunday evenings when they start to slow down. Mid week is always better.

In years past my wife has done OK and even financed a Hot August Night weekend in Reno. We have most likely paid out allot more than we have won but I just consider it as a fun time out spent with the wife.


Someone once told me
"Playing a slot machine, requires the same level of skill as flushing a toilet"
"But at least, after flushing a toilet you feel good about what you lost"

When we go we will stop at S/M, for a brake, stretch our legs, and spend $25.00 each if we get lucky, we get a bite to eat, and move on to Chinook Winds.

Labor Day last year, we walk into the casino, C/W, the wife played down stairs, I went up to have a drink, and to relax after the drive, I was just getting ready to walk in, and a machine drew my attention, WHEEL OF LUCK or some thing like that, I stop and took a look, $1.00 dollar per shot, I said to rich for my blood, But next to it there were a bunch of 5 cent machine, so I took a look, I said what the heck I well put in 5 bucks and see what happens, I covered all lines, I push play, the wheels went around, and stopped, nothing, well I needed a drink, so I pushed play again, I think I was betting max, so if I win, take the money and have some fun, the machine took off, and when it stopped, lights, music, bell ringing, I looked at the machine, there were wolves flashing there eyes, I looked at the credit adding up, when it stopped, I said what did I win to my self-------$645.00 on a 5 cent machine, I was so happy, I went down stairs to find my wife, to show her my winnings, she was happy, and shocked.
That trip when we got back to Bend, we counted our money, meals,gas,lodging other fun on the coast, we came back with more than we took.
So seeing we like it there, and have been going there for some time, I would say CHINOOK WINDS
Have fun, win big, life is good.

" I'm asking for a little insider info on which casino's in Oregon have the best payout on the slots. $1 to 5 games"

Kuz,
You asked and ye shall receive. Spirit Mountain is the place for slot play. They are Oregons #1 gaming destination for a reason.

Also, Joe you are correct. Oregon does not regulate the same as Nevada. However that is not a negative it is actually a plus. While Natives are not restricted to a minimum % payback they are greatly effected by competition which keeps our slots friendly.

Native casinos are self regulated within the constraints of both Oregon State Gaming and the Native Indian Gaming Commission. Which reflects a higher standard of internal audit and controls. OSP gaming is also regularly auditing. This affords better protections for the consumer.

Better slot play in Nevada is a huge misconception. The casinos there are srtuggling with this economy and are trying to keep afloat through tighter games.

I have played them all, it is hit and miss. Some times we do well and other times we donate our money to the casino. Most times we make a donation. Just remember, gambling is for entertainment purposes only.

I believe that when you go is more important than where. If I go to SM on a week end I always loose so I only take $40.00 (max entertainment value) I do best during the week and after 1AM whether it is SM or Chinook. The best I have done was a $1500 and a $500 Jackpot in the same night at SM and a $500 win the next night at Chinook... That is not a typical return on your investment I do find that when I am loosing I loose slower at Chinook, plus they have fried zuchini that I love

A number of years ago my boss played golf with Bill Harrah, who told him the best payoffs for slots were machines near entrances or other high traffic areas and "Big Bertha" type machines. The reason is the more that people see winners the more likely the will loosen up their purse strings

I'm not as passionate about gambling as I used to be (bought a house and ran out of disposable income) but try a google search for:

Wizard of Odds
BJ21 or Stanford Wong
las vegas advisor

Those three sites used to be the ones I found most useful and frequently listed video poker payout tables including OR and WA.

Thank you gentlemen for your time and thoughts , It;s just that I never played in Oregon before. Played 3 times a week when I lived in Michigan and the biggest payouts were in Canada with no taxes to boot. I will try them.

I think your question should be which Oregon Casino offers the most fun for your buck. If you think its question of which Casino will pay you the most money for your investment you just lost. Its like any entertainment there is a cost association. Get the most of your buck, how is the food, is the place lively, are people having fun, and how are you treated by staff. I like to play the tables and having a dealer with great personality makes for an enjoyable evening even if I'm losing. I go for fun and not that often. I never go to win money only fun.

fine to bring it back as many would like to know how this works.

most slot machines hold about 5.5% to 10 % of what you stick in them.

the indian casinos have no regulation of how much they can hold. but mostly it is in the 10% range. so for every dollar you put in you lose about ten cents.
that is the cost of pushing the button or pulling the handle so to speak.

machines that have mega payout possibilities hold even more than 10% and you almost never walk away winner from them unless you hit something big.

in simple terms if you run a dollar through the machine it will take about ten tens before you have an expectation of having lost it all.

now if you play blackjack fairly well you can only lose about 2% per bet on the average and can lower that with more skilled play.

crap tables you can lose about 1.414% betting the pass line and 1.36% betting the dont pass line. and with taking of the free odds you can get your total lose from total action to 1% approximately.

poker is really the only game in the casino that is easily beaten by very good players when there are bad players in the game.

you see a lot of advertisement, "looses slot in town 95% payback", rather than saying, for every dollar you put in, we KEEP 5%

Every once in awhile new members will sign up with the intent of selling something. They have to get 50 posts first, so they start posting comments on old threads to get their count up...that's one possibility. The other is that it might have been a person that was banned from the site and signed back up under a different moniker. You can find that out by doing some minor research. That is my thought from past "jobs" around here.

That makes no sense. I don't frequent many discussion forums but as far as I know you need to register to post on them.

They did register but it could have been a previously banned member that signed back up with a different name. It used to happen every once in awhile when I was a mod a few years back. Since the post was made, they might have just keep it on the board and not deleted it. Not saying that is what happened but it could have. One time there was a bunch of us in the chat room along with a new member, atleast that is what we thought. After some looking into it, they person somehow got into the chat room with out even registering.
