The poker slot machine which takes 25$, 50$ and $1 is the exact same machine that they have in the Gulfstream casino, Hallandale Beach, Florida. In Mardi Gras the payout is much less then in Gulfstream. For example: A royal flush at the Mardi Gras casino only pay 250 credits ($62.50) for a 25$ bet where at Gulfstream the payout is 800 credits. ($200.00) The machines are the exact same machines from the same company. I asked the marketing woman at Mardi Gras why this was. (she is not very smart) she told me the company who makes the machines determines the odds and payout. She was wrong, I spoke with the mechanics and technicians at Gulfstream and was told, she was wrong. It is the casinos who tell the company what the payouts should be on certain machines. What I am complaining about is that I was cheated and that so many other older people who like to play poker are being cheated by Mardi Gras.

    The poker machines at Mardi Gras are set to give virtually the same payback percentage as Gulf Stream. The difference is on Mardi Gras poker machines you have to bet five coins (max bet) to be awarded the top award. We call this a forced minimum and is common in all casinos. Gulf Stream has poker machines setup both ways forced and unforced. The overall payback on each machine is the same over time. What sets Mardi Gras poker machines apart from the rest is that our machines offer more options. For example 20 of our Game King Poker machines have Blackjack and Keno in addition to the standard poker themes offered, our remanding 10 Game King Poker machines are offered at .05, .10, .25, .50, and 1.00. We offer the most .05 and .10 poker machines.

    Bull-###! Yeah! the payout is posted. But the casino tells the company how much to payout. Why the hell should one casino pay less than other casinos using the same machine? They lure the older people in to play and then rape them when they are playing. Who the hell are you to answer me like you did? Are you one of their patsies or some other crony?
