    Penny slots have a worse percent take from the casino. You might have a LOWER percent edge for the casino when you’re playing 5-dollar machines, BUT THEY’RE 5-DOLLAR MACHINES!!! And here’s the most important part: It may be a lower percent taken by the casino, but they are STILL taking a percent! They always have an edge over you, and now you’re playing for more money.

    In the long run, just ask yourself what you’re really looking to do. Are you looking to relax, sip margaritas all day, and be a slot jockey? If so, stay with the penny machines and play the minimum amount for each spin. That’s fun for some people.

    Are you looking to take a chance to ‘hit it big’, and you really don’t care that you PROBABLY will lose a lot of money trying to hit it? If so, take a few hundred dollars and play max coins at the 5 or 10-dollar slot machines. When the money dries up, it’s time to go sit by the pool. If you are lucky, you’ll whack the machine for a nice prize. It doesn’t matter to the casino, because they know you’ll give it all back anyway.

    So how much bankroll do you need to play each denomination of slot machine? Based on a three-coin maximum bet averaging ten spins minute, and matched against the according payout rates, to play for an hour you would need:
    6.75 credits to play the .05 slots
    26.75 credits to play the .25 slots
    74.00 credits to play the 1 credit slots

    Well, from my experience playing slot machines, it is generally recommended that a player bet the max amount of coins in order to receive the ultimate payout. Make sure you check out the pay table of the machine you are playing in order to achieve the maximum win.

    Betting small amounts allows you to play for long periods of time without expecting much of a return. If you’re just looking to sit, play and sip cocktails then that’s definitely the way to go but if you’re looking for a more aggressive win then make sure to increase your betting amounts.

    Also, always remember that slot machines run on Random Number Generators which means that there is no rhyme or reason to scoring that big jackpot. The generator selects random numbers and outcomes each time a player spins the reels so just make sure to keep that in mind when you are playing.
