Yes, maybe a poor choice of words in respect to the fact that I used an example of "Single Deck Blackjack Paying 6 To 5" rather than simply a press release introducing a new slot. I should have transitioned my comments to what you suggest in the 3rd paragraph above (assuming you are a neutral 3rd party journalist).....If you were an employee of or a contracted PR firm representing the company releasing the slot then the intent to portray the slot by marketing only the optimal may possibly be considered as a form of misrepresentation. This is marketing and would not be unexpected for most industries and/or products......I just think gambling is easier to point a finger at as it is based on deception otherwise why do we play (or for those few just entertained) games with a known negative expectation....I think as a 3rd party journalist, you have the expertise to determine and meet your objectives such that you convey the subject press releases fairly in the best interest of all parties.... FTR, the above said, my comments that you take issue with were not directed at you personally although I can understand how one may perceive that.I think that is fair comment, with the exception of the intent to deceive, Nash.
I don't believe that there is any such intention in issuing informative releases on new game releases - it is rather, as I think Zoozie commented, that all the mechanics and odds calculations may be a super-abundance of information for the average slot player, and therefore superfluous in a marketing sense, where the objective is principally to announce the game's arrival and describe it in general terms.
But the point is taken that if the maximum achievable winnings are mentioned in the release without going into more detail on the odds etc, then it may be a better idea not to mention these at all.
The point I am trying to make is that imo the objective of a [marketing] release is not to provide an in-depth study of the game, but to announce its arrival and describe it in broad terms that will appeal to all players.
