100% wrong, Indian casinos are regulated by the Federal Indian gaming commission, every single machine must pay out a certain percentage... The gaming commission has the consent of every Indian run fashion to walk in and check whatever machine they want at anytime... Rules are rules..

Am I reading this right? All of you are complaining that you are losing money at the casino? DUH !!! Don't go there. There are plenty of ways to get rid of excess cash without feeding it into a machine. Did you really think you were going to get rich? Casinos are in business to TAKE your money. No matter how they program the machines you have a better chance of losing than of winning. Knowing that, why do you still go there?

I went there over the weekend for an event. Played the slots for a while, but wow were they bad. I didn't even stay long. Spend your money on something else.

On the plus side, maybe if they take in more money they can afford to clean the place. It's really a freaking dump.

I truly believe they have a problem understanding this. Just remember it's a region who lives off of government services or government jobs.
Spoken by a guy who had to move to PA because he wasn't smart enough to pass any test to get one of those jobs.

Really? Now I live in pa? Maybe I live in jersey since the majority of Philly suburbs are there. Maybe I'm in Clifton park right now? Maybe I'm actually in buffalo? Who knows except you right? God you are so ignorant in your world.
At least I don't live in Utica.

By law the slots must pay out a certain amount, but if you think this is how to get rich-I wish you well, the Indians are getting the due they deserve. But, not from me!
The OINKs don't obey any state or federal laws. They are a sovereign nation that plays by their own rules. "...getting the due they deserve?". They have more than leveled playing in the time they have been open. I love Halbritter's hypocrisy when he said back in '93 the Turning Stone will never serve alcohol since it was the scourge of many of his people. Many people that gamble on a regular basis have told me the Turning Stone is the worst for any type of payouts on any game. The Mohegans in Conn. have much better payouts and the extras they hand out put the Turning Stone to shame.

I'm not a supporter of any Indian casino but if your friends who gamble on a regular basis feel that way they should not go to the turning stone. It's pretty simple.

They don't!! Many of them don't even bother with the OINKs anymore. It's the Mohegans in Conn. or Casino Niagara with the Seneca Nation. Now I don't know how the Senecas operation is. But I won't put one nickel in Halbritter's snake pit.

The Turning Stone is A Big Joke! You can only stay for about 10mins
before they take every dime that you brought to play with.. some of the machines are still not working correctly.. Never any Big winners announced over the loud speaker like before... The games are totally
stupid... Vernon Downs is alot better at least you can play there a while
and win something...

Some folks are clueless... About the only positive thing in the entire county of Oneida is what the Indians are doing, What makes them the worse winning odds of all casinos ? Fractions of percentages ? Lmao... I look at it this way, if your gambling to win you're going to loose... There isn't 1 single casino in the entire world where the odds are stacked in the gamblers favor NOT 1 !!! They aren't in the buisness of paying out money to everyone that walks through the door... I think you people have some mental disorder that doesn't allow you to comprehend this.. You basically have 5% chance of walking out of a casino with more money than you walked in with, and a 10% chance of breaking even... Those are your odds I'm sorry to say... Now quit crying on topix because you lost your car payment thinking it was your lucky day... Gambling is not a profitable venture period...
They don't need to stack the odds in the gamblers favor. They just need to raise the level of their payouts to allow a reasonable amount of play. People want to be entertained for their money and losing continuously because the Indians aren't regulated does not make anyone want to go back. Lago will take care of that,

In the casino, the cardinal rule is to keep them playing and to keep them coming back. The longer they play, the more they lose, and in the end, we get it all.

Raylene said it best. Just wait till Lago opens. Can't wait to see TS workers leaving their 6-day workweeks for better climes. Screw you, Chief Wampum! Take-em peace pipe and shove it up your redskin butt!
