According to some local casino laws, the electronic machines must be set to pay back about 75% of money put into them. Actually, many savvy players believe the real results are 50% or less.

Whatever the real figure, if you play long enough, the machines will eventually eat up all money you put in. No matter how many stories of big jackpot payoffs you see posted around casinos and in the news, that’s the reality.

So, on your next gambling trip, whether to a local Native American casino or Las Vegas luxury hotel, you may enjoy some fun times, free drinks and lavish buffets. However, be aware that the casinos are not there to give away money, but to take as much as possible from your pocket. And by the way: Good luck!
