Slot Payouts - Atlantic City and Mississippi - Report #1

1 October 2001

By Gayle Mitchell

One of the most popular sections in every Slots Report is the slot payout percentages. Due to space restrictions, this reporting has been limited to generally, the top three casinos and an average of all denominations--until now. As an additional gaming tool, we offer an expanded version of these payout %'s in Atlantic City and Mississippi state as per the Gaming Commissions, along with casino/regional names by slot denominations. I suggest you utilize this additional information along with the Slots Reports over a period of months to better determine your casino selections. For now, I will let you digest these numbers, but I will be back soon with more 'numbers to chew on'.

Gayle Mitchell
Gayle Mitchell, one of the first women to break through the “felt ceiling” of the previously male-dominated world of casino gambling gurus, is now regarded as one of North America’s leading experts on casino gambling.

Gayle’s commitment to educating the gambling public began almost 20 years ago, when she walked into a Las Vegas casino and experienced for the first time the thrill that comes with winning even a small bet. She made up her mind then and there to learn every game in the casino, and a short time later resolved to make a career out of sharing her insights with other gamblers. She had always considered herself to be a good teacher – she believes in keeping things simple – and decided that she would commit herself to showing newbies how to become knowledgeable, intelligent gamblers.

Gayle started her own publishing company, and her first book came out in 1997. Today she is the author of seven books, seven EBooks, and a set of five Tips booklets, and has presented many seminars on casino gambling. Currently she teaches Learn to Win Programs with other leading experts at The site is a player-friendly Free Gambling Learning Center offering 300+ online lessons for popular casino games plus Gambling Teachers Blog. Gayle also operates, which is a games glossary site for sport, casino, skill and video game players.

“It’s a fact that less than 2 percent of casino players know the profitable, correct strategies and/or rules for most casino games,” Gayle says. “Our group of career teachers and writers are working to improve that statistic.”
