I flopped 4 3's on a five play machine and they handed me 5 scratch cards so you would think they would on the other ones but it could depend on the slot attendant too. I've seen goofy stuff happen in all casinos and would not be surprised that one day you get someone that says we don't do that and the next shift someone else gives you 100 scratch cards. They don't have anything really to play on those higher hand machines so I don't think they would blink on giving you the cards.

I think they have something posted right on the machines that says what the limit is for scratch cards. (not on every machine, just the high n-pay ones). I will confirm in August.

Today MSS posted a pic of a jackpot on one of their Double Double Bonus $1 progressive machines. They have dropped the paytables from 9/5 to 8/5, putting them at 96.8% + progressive contribution, which used to be 1%.. I'm going to assume it still is.

Later someone posted that they now have gone to 6/5 blackjack as well.

Good bye, MSS, it was nice knowing you. I'm staying at the El Cortez next trip... I've stayed almost exclusively at MSS for over 20 years.

One by one the casinos are lowering their pay tables. When was the last time a casino improved the pay tabels? Soon you will either play the poor game or quit.

its simple math. does mms even offer the piano playing on the second floor that it used to? a nice pause in the 'old' days, probably a bit too costly to the casino now.

It ain't It is not so bad. All those blackjack dealers need supervision. A free concert or a good beer can be a bargain too. A good vp might exist but stalkers might camp out at it, so what is the use?
