Get outta here! YOU CAN'T WIN, the machines are designed to take your money. And besides if a machine malfunctions, WHO are you going to complain to? Manager's have been fired for cheating THEIR OWN WORKERS, (even though it took MONTHS to fire the son of the former tribal spokeswoman) you think they care about YOU?
The Pechanga Casino in Temecula features hundreds of table games and over 3,500 slot machines. Do you think they would be able to put all those games and machines in their casino IF there was a good chance you would win money? Each machine was averaging $325 a day in 2004. Do you think in the tough economy they might tighten the reels a bit? You DID know they don't have to put the win % on tribal slots, like they do in Las Vegas?
Exactly how do you think that each Pechanga member can be paid $360,000 per year (now sadly down to under $250,000, even AFTER the theft of over $300,000,000 from fellow tribal members? By you WINNING? Hardly. Take $20 and if you don't hit it big, QUIT. If you win more than 25% STOP PLAYING and go home with your winnings.
The best thing you can do is take a coupon in for the buffet and start with the expensive items! Lamb, shrimp, crab cakes, steak or sushi (not rolls). LEAVE the salads and cheap jello desserts and go for the chocolate. Take a ziploc for snacks and splenda to extend your pleasure!
The drinks? Well, they have automated pourers, so the bartenders can't make it stronger for you, tipping extra won't help, so find a deal on beers, at least you know what you are getting.
Avoid the fancy restaurants because a steak is: $38 for a 7 oz filet and a breast of chicken is $32 at the great oak. (2008 prices) Shoot, a plate of SPAGHETTI is $13 and that's with NO SALAD at Paisano's.
Tip well, as the staff could be layed off at anytime, but STAY away from the machines. REMEMBER, Pechanga has cheated their own people to make their share of the pie much larger. So you know that:
IF THEY CHEAT THEIR OWN, THEY'LL CHEAT YOU
Like in the movie War Games, the answer is:
The only way to win is NOT TO PLAY
