You’re getting the same game with free play as with fresh money.
If you tracked results over a very long time, you’d find your payback percentages with free play would be roughly the same as when you use fresh money or when you use tickets brought over from other games. In the short-term, anything can happen, and a bad streak or two or three with free play can lead us to conclude there’s something other than random chance at work.
Keep in mind that casinos don’t want to short-change the players they’re trying to turn into long-term, loyal guests. The house has all the edge it needs built into the games, and is willing to reinvest a small portion of its proceeds into building customer loyalty.
