Slot payouts at Pa. casinos dropping

Spectrum Gaming Group, an industry consultant, concurs with that view. In the October issue of Mike Pollock's Gaming Industry Observer, Spectrum addressed the issue of lower payouts, saying it believed that removing electronic table games was the "primary factor" in the plunge.

Shawn McCloud, director of analysis for Spectrum Gaming, agreed that changing the mix of machines can affect the overall payout percentage.

He said it's not unusual for newer casinos to make adjustments to the mix of slot machines as they learn more about playing habits and seek to meet customer demand for certain types of games.
