I recently returned from a vacation in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania and played video poker at the Mohegan Sun Casino at Pocono Downs.
Although this location is a racetrack similar to Monticello, NY and Yonkers, NY, these machines operate via a RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR. They are not VIDEO LOTTERRY TERMINALS like those in New York.
I sent an email to the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut and they confirmed that the machines at Pocono Downs use RANDOM NUMBER GENERATORS. The payouts offered byt VLT'S are invariably poor.
To prove the point, I sent an email to Yonkers Raceway and they reported their overall payback percentage for all gaming machines is 90 - 92 percent. SO STAY AWAY.
