Slots are set with odds based on % of money going into them. They could have a hundred Wheel of Fortune machines, and all would pay out at different rates depending on $$ played in them.

Don't know about that cause we played the 25 C slots on the Triumph in Feb.

Hubby got down to his last 1.00 and hit at 250.00! WOO HOO...got t-shirts plus 250.00. Was nice to win for a change.

Kuki-

Not quite right.

The slot machines are set by a computer chip to payout at a given percentage. You are correct there. However, each pull of the lever/push of the button is a separate event. There is no memory of prior play and it does not matter how much money has been played previously. If the chip has been set for a 98% payback then the odds for every pull are 48/52 in the house's favor.
