    Have they all set their slot percentages to 85% (or maybe even lower if they can) and not told us?

    My local is Tampa Hard Rock, and I haven't had a winning trip, or left with money since Feb. 2016, and we go every weekend. Yep that bad.

    Fallsview has just been terrible the last few months. Old machines are disappearing quickly and new machines are appearing all over the place. You really notice that No one wins big there anymore (unless you bet big). Even then the wins I have been seeing lately.. $12 bet $160 bonus. 8.88 bet $190. 🤦. Sure is taking the fun away. Just be nice to win something once in a while (or be able to stay and play). Bonuses are becoming very rare too. Everything is progressives now. And the min bet seems to be getting higher. Minimum is hovering around 75c now.
    Even the over staffed slot attendants (which stand around and do nothing) have been noticing the lack of handpays (keep in mind hps there start at $500). Something needs to be done. Management doesn't give a shit either. Everyone has been complaining. You see it all the time. They stand there like they don't care and tell you it's your choice to play there. And with the lack of wins comes the lack of comps (which affects everyone). If Fallsview wants to keep up the lack of payouts, they need to adjust thier comps to reflect it. Maintaining Platinum is a joke. There is no benefit of having it since meal/resort credits are now rated monthly (use to be done periodically and monthly). Ie: if you had Platinum you were guranteed a $200 credit each month, now you are not guaranteed anything. The formula has somehow changed. It's pure greed.

    Also noticing all the WMS machines disappearing and being replaced by Everi.
    If this is a sign of the future, I'm going to stop gambling in Ontario. Period.

    Ontario sounds a lot like the Locals in Indiana. I am still fighting back - fewer trips, $200BR instead of the six or eight hundred I used to take. I go mainly for the meals and free play nowadays. My bank account is happy - it's getting fatter and fatter - but my fun and entertainment suffers. I hope they all come to their senses before Local gambling becomes just a memory and slotting is once again available only in Las Vegas. I am too old and health-issued to travel out there anymore.

    My local is Tampa Hard Rock, and I haven't had a good hit on anything since back in 2016. At least 100 losing trips. I go a lot less because they also became very stingy with free play and comps. I'll go once a month now with a few hundred, and am in and out in like 20 minutes.

    I make a truckload of money, and I’m wondering how some of you guys can go every week. You guys must have container ships of money.

    I go several times a week every week.. I don't have truckloads of money.. I micro roll and try to go on multiplier days and spread my visits out to several casinos. I build up points on old school aristocrats mostly playing 20 cents a spin or 40 cents or even 60 cents.. Then I convert those points to free play.. Sometimes I'll bring 60 bucks with me and I hope for the best!
