It's obvious society in general is better off with a higher return, while the casino is better off with free play to manipulate. People are less likely by far to win big early and leave when they're hooked on free play, or lose fast with little play fort that matter. Even with raised returns, slotwise there will still be a sharp difference on any machines they feel threatened, so what's the point.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

That is crazy talk. If we all only played free play how would we be worse off?

Why dont you just answer your own question the way you think I would reply? Personally I think you know better and are trying to trick me into wasting my time with a 100 word response. I refuse.

I think claiming that free play makes the general populace more likely to empty their wallets unwillingly is a little dubious. In my opinion the average gambler is a stop win, stop loss, or stop play, player so free play isn't going to change that. Of course free play ultimately hurts people susceptible to problem gambling, but I mean so does anything gambling related.

I also don't really think the concept of higher return is that useful in and of itself. The wages per hour, min wage, and variance of the game are all extremely important.
Assume the worst, believe no one, and make your move only when you are certain that you are unbeatable or have, at worst, exceptionally good odds in your favor.
