Generally speaking, the newer high cost casinos with a large debt to pay off will generally have tighter slots than the older, already paid for many times over places which have much lower overhead costs.

For me it's Circus Circus by a wide margin.

Looks like Imperial Palace according to this site, now that Sahara has closed.

I would have said you couldn't figure this out. You would need hundreds of hours of continuous play on one machine to get an idea of its setting. And that would only tell you about that one machine. Any results you get from a short time (less than hundreds of hours) on one machine doesn't give you enough statistics.

That said, the wizard did an interesting analysis of one particular Jackpot Party machine:

wizardofodds.com/games/slots/jackpot-party/

He determined it has an 86% payout. So, if you were to follow his methodology you could analyze any particular machine and figure out what its return is at the time you recorded the video. Which is not to say the casino wouldn't change its chip that night or move them around.

Play whatever you like wherever you like and don't sweat it. If you're playing slots you've already signed up for a bad house edge.

They're all tight. At least the big ones are, I have won and lost thousands at Bellagio and Aria though. Aria was really loose IMO the first year they opened and have tightened up alot since then. I can tell you IMO the tightest slots on the strip belong to the Mirage and CP. Others will disagree about CP but thats been my experience.

I wonder when that list was created or how it was done. Barbary Coast, Aladdin, Lady Luck, Westward Ho and Castaways all on that list.

I don't know Wheatie. I checked the page properties and it said March 2011, but there were some other notable MIAs, as well as notable closed places.

100 different responses to 1 question. MY first trip to vegas the palms was listed as the loosest. So i went thinking that. I lost a ton there. That trip we stayed at planet hollywood, and it was bad their. Only place i won any money that trip was TI. Next trip played a CP got cleaned out went to TI won a substantial amount said sweet loose slots=TI, Next Trip go to TI got cleaned out. After numerous trips i figured harrahs properties were bad, then i stayed a ph and won a ton of money. They all are tight and loose, no ryhme or reason. Play were you like, My personal favorite high limit room at mgm grand or bellagio i go up and down like a roller coaster but treated well there.

Thanks jd you are the only one that even remotely answered my question. Was asking for people's "OPINION" not stats that are published. Yes I know I will get lots of different answers but just wanted to see what everyones opinion was.
