So we know that the payback rates for slots in the Boulder Strip and Reno, NV are higher than those on-strip. Although I haven't seen details of slot payback rates for individual properties, it's been generally said that the fancier casinos need to pay for their fanciness somehow, and that generally means the payback rates are reduced.

I'll be staying at Caesars Palace next week, and I wonder: Would it make sense to head over to the Rio for (a chance of) better slot payback, or stick with gambling at Caesars? I'd go off-strip, but I'm purposely going for a higher level with Caesars.

IMO, Rio Is not the bottom rung of the CET property ladder. I could easily be wrong. But for slots, I would rank Linq, Ballys, and Flamingo (in that order) as most likely to pay slightly better than Rio, Paris and Planet Hollywood about the same, Harrah's slightly worse, Caesars worst.

The best CET VP (if you're including that in slots) is at Cromwell. No idea if they have good slots.

All JMHO based on my experience only.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Your time, your shoe leather. What atmosphere do you prefer? How much free booze? Which brands?

The atmosphere really doesn't make much of a difference for me. Since the CET casinos are all so close to each other (well, except for Rio), I don't mind the short walk to experience one offering vs. another.

Thank you for your replies. I think my takeaway is to check out the Linq while I'm on my way to the High Roller.
