Slot Machines: the cost centers of an online casino
You play from your home, so:
Are you the one paying the rent or the mortgage or did you buy it for cash I don’t care!
You have no staff to pay
Luckily, if you need a cold beer, your girlfriend is always there to bring it
She’ll take care of cleaning your house (I guess she won’t be happy to read these lines)
The costs of the light, you know it well, unfortunately are at your expense
You don’t have the cost of the physical structure of the slot machines, because this is your computer (which I hope you bought not only to gamble online)
So, finally, your fixed costs, when you play online, are costs that you would still have even if you don’t decide not to play, but to watch a movie with your girlfriend slot online .
As far as maintenance costs and casino customer service personnel are concerned, the matter is a bit more complex, as maintenance is obviously borne by the software while the personnel is borne by the site.
Slot machines: Conclusions
To conclude, the matter is very simple: online casinos have significantly lower costs than land-based casinos, bars or slots rooms.
What does it mean? Simple that online slots “can afford” to pay more and still make a profit!
And this, dearest Gambler, is a real fact, not invented by me.
According to AAMS data , online slots have an average payout ranging from 94% to 98%, while indoor slot machines (VLT) have a payout of 90%. Finally, the bar slot machines, which I deliberately didn’t even consider, have a 75% payout.
The odds of winning are therefore 4/8% higher online than in rooms with VLT slot machines.
The odds of winning are 20/23% higher in online than in bar slots.
