Bankroll is one of the most important aspects of gambling. It doesn't matter how good a game is if a short cold streak can wipe out your bankroll.
Also keep in mind that the royal on the 8/5 machine will frequently not require a tax form. And, because of the progressive, the 8/5 machines may at times have a higher long-term payback than the 9/6 machines and they may even pay back more than 100% if the progressive gets high enough.
We'll try to have more articles about Indian casinos in the future. The passage of Proposition 1A in California is the most significant event in gambling since New Jersey approved casino gambling in Atlantic City over 20 years ago.
We have articles by Catherine Poe, who travels around the country visiting cities that have many other things to do besides casino gambling. She frequently visits Indian casinos.

Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
