My answer to the poll was a big ol' "Meh." Personally, I have long ceased giving any credence to these types of ads. If I am really concerned about slot payback, I'd probably come here or over to WoO for the straight (well, straightest available) dope.
As far as the airport ad goes, I can't see anyone thinking that the airport's slots pay more than the casino's. In fact, if instead of that ad, they had placed a piece of construction paper with "There are slot machines in the terminal" hand-written in magic marker, I bet it would have the same effect on travelers. They could have used the money they spent on this ad campaign to loosen those slots! :P
It looks to me like that woman has no feet.
Indeed! I hadn't noticed that. Now, I am wondering why she is pulling her suitcase up that purple pyramid thing. Won't some of the bills become dislodged and fall out when the suitcase comes crashing down from the pyramid?
Ok, now I am noticing the tag line on the airport ad:
"Over $15 million won at Reno Tahoe International. You could be next!"
Does anyone see this as an ambiguous non-sequitur with ominous overtones? Maybe it's just me.
