What does Payback percentage mean?
    Payback percentage is the percentage of money that a casino paysout to their customers in relation to how much money they take in.


Casino X takes in $100,000 in revenue from their $1 slot machines in May, 2010.

Casino X paysout $90,000 to players playing $1 slot machines in May, 2010.

Casino X has a payback % in May, 2010 of 90%

Why do you need to know that?
    Slot machines are all set at different payback percentages ranging from 80%-99%. If you are playing at a slot machine that is set to payback 95% and another player is playing on a machine with an 85% payback, you have a significantly greater chance of winning than does the person playing the lower percentage machine.
