Just got back from a week stay in Vegas. Arrival and departure played a total of three hours in Terminal 3. Terminal 3 has nice selection of slot's but problems do exist. Sad to report in my 20 years experience of playing airport slots, I have now realized Airports slots are at an all time low. Never saw a customer hit a $1000 or higher. Airport slots are no longer fair or worthy. Encountered 3 machines in three different areas, in need of mechanical repairs. Tried to be nice and notify slot employee so they could put up an out of order sign and make arrangement for repairs. Unbelievable. None of those 3 employees could understand the mechanical issues I was talking about. I speak English and was unable to have an effective conversation with any of them. A triple wheel machine in smoking would not work for setting up a bet amount prior to your first spin. I demonstrated the problem 3 times and the attendant still could not understand. He decided to open the games rules section to see if it would tell him how to fix it. ( I am not joking) Vegas airport slots are in such a sad state compared to how fair and fun they used to be. My self respect simply won't allow me to indulge them anymore.

The last time I went thru the Vegas airport was about five years ago. I hit a $1,000 royal with only $20 in the machine. I was promptly paid.

About a year earlier I hit quad aces w kicker on $1 DDB for $2000. I had to wait about a half-hour for the payoff money from a different terminal.

But I have no complaints.

I don't have any complaints, either. The staff there are pretty low-level. That said, the airport slots are run by Michael Gaughan/South Point and he has a good reputation.

No complaints here, either. I hit this in May of last year in Terminal 1, C Gates:



I was paid promptly, which was good as my flight started boarding right after I hit it.

I would assume they still are because they have a captive audience.

I think the wide area progressives such as Wheel of Fortune are the same in any casino.

If I recall I was playing 7/5 Bonus when I got my 25-cent royal about 5 years ago.

I have no idea what the paytables are now.

There are different percentages for the WAP's but the odds to hit the top jackpot are the same. The lower percentages just have different hit frequencies for the lower pays.
