Was recently in a known-for-sweat casino on the Strip which begins with C and ends in N. Went in the HL slor room, checked a few machines and found nothing. Next machine had a couple of mults, so I played them. Final machine, right next to it had a couple of mults. Put in ticket, deal button lit up at 10 unit bet. Changed it to 5 units and it went off. Called a slot attendant and she seemed somewhat clueless, but said this machine must require a 10 unit bet to play.

Any chance the EITS was watching and flipped some switch remotely to disallow a non-max bet? Anyone ever seen anything like this before? A new UX countermeasure?



To the best of my knowledge, any adjustment to those machines must be at the machine itself. They can be and are networked to reporting software but that software gathers data from the machine and does not relay instructions back.

I believe that is 100 percent correct

I know some machines require a $12.50 minimum bet in that HL room.

Motorcity has a few nickel machines set to a $1.00 min bet therefore no picking off any triple plays

The problem with this, it's that many dg's only play 1 credit per line so now they can't pay those machines..
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

Their 100 plays do. I never looked at ultimate X in high limit there though, but I've never seen one yet to require a minimum bet. Just seen a picture of one from ibeatyouraces. And settings can be changed electronically on some machines. But a four minute idle period is necessary in Nevada to legally do so.

Are the poker machines designed to be adjusted from a distance? I knew this system has been talked about and in the works for some time and the Nevada regulations do allow for this but I was not aware that poker machines had been modified for this. Will have to speak with some of the slot manufacturer reps the next time I see them and try to find out where these systems have been installed and if they have had any issues. We have discussed this where I work but have not advanced any further than that. The WMS wage net system pretty much soured the milk for us.

In practice, I really don't know how prevalent it is on VP. There maybe be many casinos that don't utilize it. I know that VP doesn't change terribly often in the casinos I visit. But I would assume the newest machines could utilize the technology.

I hope you never did the "creator" thing. I ran into one of those guys at the Hard Rock. He hustled some poor sap, and then had his associate (female) play off the multipliers. I called security on them, and he called me a few choice names and then left.

Those people are absolute scum.

Just out of curiosity what this guy in his late 40s shaved head with a much younger 21 or 22 ish innocent fairly attractive looking female, perhaps dark red hair? He looked all coked up and you could just look at him and know he was up to no good.

I had a run in with a pair like that a while back, it looked as if she was not yet fully aware of everything going on, it seemed as if drugs were a motivation somehow.
