I'm going to Vegas next week and am recieving $750 in free play which must be used in slots or video poker and played where I am staying (CEARSARS). Of course, I'd like to hit something big with this money, but my real goal with it is to have fun, spend an afternoon on the machines and leave with enough to finance an evening of Pai Gow Poker. When I do play slots, I enjoy the multi line machines that give alot of free spins. In Video Poker, I like the multi hand (up to 100 hands) games. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
In the US the slots that accept free play are generally the same slots the same slots on the gaming floor that you play with cash. The return is the same for freeplay as it is for cash play.
The multi-line multi-coin video slots with bonus features have certainly changed the casinos floors in the last number of years. Many people play them (myself included) because they have more entertainment value than traditional reel slots. One thing to be aware of is that you can expect these machine to have a lower payback than a quarter, dollar or higher denomination slot machine. You are essentially paying more for your entertainment with a bonus video slot than a reel slot.
Play Pelican Pete. Always a winner.
Typically if there are machines that won't accept free play it's because their software is not capable of supporting it. Also some casinos restrict the use of free play in slots that share revenue with a manufacturer (wide area progressives or participation banks). The reasoning is that they don't want to give money to a customer to play and then have to pay a percentage on top of that to the game manufacturer.
Thanks for the advice. Wish me luck
