So a local casino here in Reno had a grand prize of accepting $7,500 cash or getting to play every machine in the casino with max spin or deal: collecting whatever it paid. What would you do if you were the winner? Iím not sure how many machines the casino had but I heard around 500.

You should have made a poll i would take 7500 as I always believe free play has different odds

Depends on the quality of their HL room and total number of machines.

Your average bet would have to be over $15 per machine. $15 per machine would break you even, but now you have to fade the vig on each machine. You would have take a look and see how many multi denomination, multi line, and high limit machines they have, especially ones with $5 denominations or more. With only 500 machines I have to assume it's a small place that probably doesn't have much as far as higher limits.

Here is where I think you might get them. If they have Bubble craps, Big tits BJ, and E-roulette etc, That alone could easily put you way above that $7500. I think it would take less than 15 min to figure out what to do.

Does their website show what games they have available and pictures of the casino floor?

If you had to choose blind without any knowledge where, I think that would be a tough decision.

In Reno many places have $1 Denom slots/VP in their high limit rooms. If half the machines are like this it might not be a good deal.

full room of $1 100 play (-;

Aside from the E-tables, I don't know that I would focus on just the high limit room. Bar-tops and multi games can oftentimes have some big bets. That might get offset by the nickle and penny slots.

I still want to know the logistics of how they would do this, do they shut down the casino, tell a player to stop playing while he spins, wait the players out?) and how long it would take. IIRC there was mention of a similar promo at a NY casino?

Yes I believe they know when you are using free play and adjust winnings accordingly but another thought is why would I put the money o already am promised against the house edge once again to win back my winnings
