Great points Paul. The machine availability and the capital cost of new versus existing, which are not available, never occurred to me. It would be nice to see it expand to the sister property but I can understand why it would not. And I sure as heck don’t want “our” machines at the Queens going anywhere else.
Another thought as I was typing the above, the classic 6 machines in play are a fantastic value compared to the modern machines, not the new strike machines, but the other new types of slots all over Vegas. I can get a jackpot spin for 75 cents versus the newer machines wanting $1-$5 for each pull, jackpot or no. They have replaced tangible returns like strikes for a giant vid screen of epileptic entertainment. I don’t want to risk a seizure, I just want a strike. ;)
