thx for confirmation that Class III slots cant be changed remotely by a slot supervisor in front of his computer.

it takes opening each slot individually and inserting a gaming chip to change payback %.

and wow.. 98% payback?!
which casinos have that?

Some games can be changed remotely but it is a small percentage. They are called server based games.

A former colleague told me that some casinos used to offer a handful of 99% machines (usually under a big sign that said 99% payback), likely as a marketing gimmick.

I fully expect that the 8 machines under the sign were set to 99%.
I fully expect that the rest of casino floor had placements of similar machines and themes with a markedly lower return.
May the cards fall in your favor.

The sign would say "Up tp 99% return". Meaning at least one of the machines was set to that but the others were not.

I can believe it was formatted something like:

up to99% Return!

I maintain that "upto" is a four letter word.

I'm not sure why they are using old style machines to make assumptions of what's going on in this day and age. It should be titled this is how older machines work.

Correct me if I am wrong, but even without a central server machines nowadays have various payback settings available that they can manually changie without messing with the chip?

I've seen some other videos on this guy's channel, and I wonder if he is using his alleged inside knowledge as a slot tech to spread some misinformation. He claims that slot machines need to periodically "balance themselves out" in order to meet their payback % requirements. He says that a strategy you can do is look for certain patterns and "hot" machines that are paying out a lot, because it's a sign that a machine hasn't paid out in a while and needs to pay out more than usual in order to comply with the payback % setting. This is not my understanding of how a slot machine works; my understanding is that there is no need for a machine to "balance itself out" because the law of probability will do that by itself.

Skip to 21:22 to see an example of him making these claims


It's very odd because in his videos, he simultaneously makes the claim that a slot machine uses a Random Number Generator and each spin is totally random, and yet it pays out more than usual on certain occasions to balance itself out. These two claims are irreconcilable.

Iíve heard of the periodic balancing but from what I understand the balancing process is also highly regulated and it happens once a year

I also am a person who thinks they are an over time kind of thing that balances itself out and do not understand what a balancing means

I also posted this video to get a discussion about what heís saying going. He is leaving out a crap ton of info.

When people think rigging is happening I believe they think itís something like a class 2 lottery system.
