Hello.

The Roulette Royale jackpot hit yesterday.

I thought I would have a look at the payout of this game.

\$1 side bet:

Same number twice, \$15.
Same number three times, \$300
Same number four times, \$3000
Same number five times, jackpot.

The same number twice will occur every 37 spins, 3 times, every 1369 spins, four times 50,653 spins, five times, 1,874,161 spins

Therefore if you wagered 1,874,161 spins you would expect:

50,653 * \$15 = \$759,795
1369 * \$300 = \$410,700
37 * \$3000 = \$111,000

1 * jackpot

Total is \$1,281,495, plus whatever the jackpot is.

Yesterdays jackpot was the highest ever \$437,800. However, even this ripe jackpot only represented a return of 91.7%. This is worse than any non-progressive game they offer.

The average jackpot is \$230k, so on average the game is returning only 80%!!!

This is a rip-off. Any ideas whether the other progressives are as bad as this?
