If a bar has 5 machines that get played 70 times an hour at $1 per play and played for 12 hours. That leads to a gross amount played of $840 per machine for $4200 for all machines.
Yes, my rate of play may be low, but I think my average bet is high. Go to a casino in this state during the week. Lots of folks a nickle and quarter slots, not a lot a the dollar machines.
Back to the math....
With an 80% payout it results in a net on the 5 machines of $840 (before taxes). The taxes are $252 of which 1/6 goes to the local government video Gaming Distributive fund. That 1/6th is $42 so for each location that has 5 video poker devices. So if a city has 10 bars, thats about $420 a day or about $153,300 a year. Decent money, but not exactly a windfall considering the state is going to get about $744,609 in the same time period..
