I was able to process more than 130 bets in under a minute.



So It was worth it for you losing a fixed $7800/hour to achieve the next tier level ?

I find it hard to believe in 2020 that grinding 0 variance bets at a 5.2% house edge produces value in excess of losses. Especially at a place like Mohegan Sun.

That assumes the betting unit is $1, doesn't it?

Read it again. I played less than a minute. My cost was $264.

are these the digital cabinets?



I met a guy who swore he was beating these machines to the point where he was very sure he had many people watching him and he also claimed they kicked him out at one point

If I had a nickel for every time.....



have you ever seen a tweaker? this guy wasnt on drugs but he acted like he had a reason to be paranoid. It was mostly the fear in his eyes. He wasnt poor either. He was well dressed too. I took his story with a grain of salt and as mostly made up, but something about the way this guy peeked around corners and walked cautiously while maintaining his awareness, was as if he believed his story. And the normal roulette players around there had mostly a defeated, degenerate look in their eyes, even though they were mostly playing a live dealer wheel, rather than the ones were talking about.

I wanted to believe him because he was the complete opposite of what I knew as a normally degen roulette player, and trust me there were many "regulars" around there who i would see almost on a daily basis, and their systems always changed. But apparently this guy never changed his.

Everything about this guy "seemed" different which is why I think my mind wanted to believe him more.

I dont believe in roulette systems, per se though. And my "system" or whatever you want to call it is visual ballistics mostly but RRS screws that up so bad IMO.

when it comes to people with crackpot gambling theories...they come in all sizes, shapes and backgrounds.

I think you are conflating my activity to cover an entire qualifying amount. I was only interested in a small increment at the end of a qualifying period. Here's what I got for my $264. Comped suites any day of the week instead of comped rooms sometimes during the week. Lounge access any day instead of just weekdays that aren't holidays. Credits for 80 lounge accesses a month instead of 20. A better grade of alcohol in drinks at bars. A separate hotel check in desk. Reserved parking. Plus some other stuff. Worth the $264 for six months of that for me. Maybe not for you. I'm cool with that.

On Sunday I tried to add enough play for Mrs. Chips to reach an award level, but the machine would no longer allow zero- and near-zero-variance bets. I gather new software has been installed.

The casino benefits from the change by not allowing players to exchange money for player points at a fixed rate. Previously, a player with limited bankroll needing a specified number of player points would be able to “buy” the points without “gambling.” Now players in such a situation are forced to accept some variance and “gamble.” Some will be lucky and get what they need. Others will fall short, donating their bankroll to the casino but not reaching a level where the casino reciprocates with added benefits. Bummer!

I don’t understand why some casinos frown upon or disallow zero/low variance betting. I’d think that would be the ideal bettor for a casino...they get exactly the house edge, guaranteed
It’s all about making that GTA
