Wow, that is awful.
Here in PA, the state average is 89.9%, which doesn't seem that bad until you start playing and $100 blows by in 10 minutes with maybe a couple cherries and a set or two of mixed bars, or maybe a dozen 4 Ks or 3 special symbols on a 5 reel penny machine. I couldn't imagine people playing at worse RTP, this seems to be about the minimum that will keep people in the chair.
Strategic mistakes are one thing. After all, it's possible to play blackjack with an 8% RTP (92% edge) if you always hit until you bust. The law doesn't protect gamblers from being really, really bad at blackjack.Quote: Ahigh
this despicable result can happen with video poker (a return that is so anemic due to choosing to hold the wrong cards that it should be against the law IMO) as well as in craps (when playing the pass line after the four or ten is set as the point).
Right but I think there is a state minimum in pa I don't remember what it is, but most of the video poker has terrible pay tables, I actually think some of the high limit slots have better return them the vp- there are a few casinos with exceptions
I see it all the time.Quote: MathExtremist
Have you actually observed a dealer accepting a late line bet on a 4 and book it as an even-money pass bet?
Has anyone seen a game with a worst RTP than this? If so, please post details (and in particular the country where you saw it).
