There is also paperwork with the Gaming Commission if they want to change hold percentages. They may not want to deal with that.

I wonder if thr gaming commission are allowed to disclose any information whether a casino has requested a change in the so called holds upon request.

In Nevada you do not have to file with the Gaming Commission to change hold percentages.

If the paytable is the same, the hold did not change.

The only way to tighten a video poker machine is to reduce the paytable. If the paytable is the same, the hold is the same.

The first few times I went to the casinos since they re-opened I lost. The morerecent times I went, I won. That shows clearly that when they first opened they were tighter. But after being tighter for a few days, the machines then loosened.
