My home is only five miles away from an Indian casino that opened twelve years ago. The slot machine games at that time were three line nickel and quarter machines. The Indian casino also had a few dollar slots. The slot machines were all reel slots machine games. This means that you played them by putting in coins one at a time and you will be paid in coins that come out into a tray under the machine.
In the present, some slot machines have as many as 100 lines. It is now possible to play any denomination from one cent to ten dollars. Contemporary slot machine games are now video games and are quite interactive. If you are winning, then these machines will make special sounds. In fact, some of them will even wish you luck when you hit the spin button.
You will receive a printed ticket that can also be inserted into another machine when you win. I noticed that there are still a few reel machines in the casino, but these are being eliminated quickly. However, some people believe that the reel slot machine games had better odds than the video games. Of course, the gaming experts deny that this is true.
There were more blackjack tables than slot machines and the building was little more than a steel shed with carpeting during the casinos early years. There are now over four thousand slot machine games, blackjack tables, poker rooms and a hotel with over six hundred rooms in the Indian casino. Costumers can also enjoy the four restaurants, a coffee shop, candy store and a full spa that have been built in the casino.
The Indian casino management has also decided to add a conference center and auditorium that host many big name concerts through out the year. Over twelve hundred people are presently employed in the casino. The advancements in the video slot machine games are credited as the main reason why the casino has achieved so much in fifteen years.
Bus loads of people frequently come to the casino on charter trips from the five state area. The lives of the Native Americans have greatly improved thanks to the casino. In fact, they have benefited a new school, clinic and a great deal of housing that have been built in the area. Due to the success of the casino, they were able to build a government center and have re-established their tribal courts.
However, many people have complained that they do not pay off well enough at the casino. In their opinion, the slot machine games are set too tight. The gaming commission did sanction them last year for not paying off the proper percentage. Nevertheless, these controversies have not stopped the people from coming.
