My understanding about slot machine software is that as soon as you select your bet amount the machine already knows what it's going to spin even before you pull the handle. All slots by law have to "pay back" a certain percentage of their take. I think Louisiana is set around 92%. Slots don't have to hit jackpots to reach the 92% payback. 8% casino rake may not sound like a lot but it does add up for the casino. I've never known a casino to go into business expecting to lose money. What other business do you know of that guarantees you a $920 return on every $1000 you "invest" with them. I'd offer that deal everyday if I could find enough suckers to take it.

Profits are wonderful, but how much damage does it cause the community? How many individual families has gambling at this casino damaged?? What did the Parish and city allow Evangeline Downs to get away with in order to attract the casino here?? I can't imagine they wanted to come to Opelousas without their being a MAJOR benefit to them. I know I heard several years back that the city allowed them to stay open and sell alcohol very late. How many families has THIS damaged?? How many lives have been lost to drunk drivers since allowing people to drink all hours of the night at the casino? Has this rate increased? I have questions and your answer is way too simple for me. Sorry...

You are an idiot. If no one in America complained and tried to change things, then blacks would still be slaves and women wouldn't be allowed to vote. Thinking and complaining causes people to want to CHANGE things and often these CHANGES are for the better.

I also wonder how many jobs have been created because of this
Casino. Also, look at the extra businesses developed because of it. You have people coming to YOUR town to spend their money. The revenue created benefits everyone. You have owners, jockeys, and people coming to watch the races who otherwise would never come to this town. I'm not saying everything about a casino is a blessing but people need to have personal responsibility. No one forces someone to go to a casino and waste their money. If they are stupid enough to plunk ther money into a machine then that's their own fault. As for drunk drivers, maybe the opd should set up outside the gates. I can guarantee you though that if the casino closed, there would be alot more damage done to this community than good. Wether you like to admit it or not, when it comes to economic revenue and job creation, that casino has been the best thing to happen to this town.

You all are a bunch of whiney, snot nosed crybaby bitches that need to get over yourselves. You all are worse than the gambling population in Colorado. I thought it was bad there, but damn!

Ghetto Downs. The place for the trashy welfare drug dealers pieces of worthless crap to play at. Since this other company bought them out, I hope they fire the people in charge. Look at the buffet, that is the worst garbage I have ever seen. Look at the element there as well, nothing but low life thugs. Close that place down.

Apparently, the security there is not good. Because after I got my ID checked and approved at the doors, I ended up getting approached by some other security guard 15 minutes later. Accusing me of being underage...I'm 27...but he said I looked 20. I handed him my ID...finally after 10 minutes trying to look all official, talking in his walkie talkie...he looked at my ID and saw I was telling the truth and explained that a 19 year old got in the casino a month ago. So I guess instead of trying to make it more secure at the doors...they are going to harassed every 20 something person that walks in....

Why does everyone go to a new casino first day when it opens? Easy answer because the casino is hitting and I mean "really hitting". Do not tell me about a random generator because the first day the machines are totally on. So if they can control the first day of being loose can't they always? Of course dumasses!!!!!!!!!!
