However, according to the Michigan Gaming Control Board, the slot machines must meet the same minimum standards that the machines in New Jersey or Nevada have. In New Jersey, the minimum return is 83% and in Nevada, it is 75%. Therefore, Michigan Native American casinos must have a return of at least 75%, in order to comply with the state gaming laws.
