Slot hold percentage, or the casino “win” on slots, varies rather dramatically in Nevada, depending upon where you play. In destination regions like the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown, Laughlin and the Lake Tahoe area, slot hold is solidly over 6 percent. In “locals” markets, it doesn’t dent the 6 percent level.
