Players figured out they canít win, I.e. they lacked the skill to win. What skill that is needed, who knows. Like some have said, it could be like the skill stop needed on kids games to win a large prize where you have to stop the light at the right time. Looks easy but you are always just missing.

The route companies pushing the games are telling potential placement locations like me enough to tell me the return is low. He stated he has never had a losing week at a location and he owns a large vending company. Try and say that with a VP route. He provides great information but wonít give me details on the bells and whistles. Only that placements and returns are down since they were initially hot when first released.

I hope that helps answer some of your questions. These are by no means similar to a regular slot machine.

Recent article about "Queen of Virginia" slots:
https://www.bizjournals.com/washington/news/2019/08/13/games-of-skill-or-illegal-slots-as-gaming-machines.html

but still cant find what the range of possible returns for the machine is.
ie: typical slot machines found in Vegas and Atlantic City have a return range usually between 85% - 96%
