Hello. In my home town (Ljubljana, Slovenia) casino is giving away 5-40 € (Wheel of fortune) playable tickets (you must put your own 20€ in to collect them). Im spending a lot of my time in casino now. Since im studying computer science I am naturally curious about the odds of machines i am playing.

Mainly i play IGT's Pharous fortune, Pharous gold and Cleopatra 2. I have read some of your deconstructions of various slot machines (cleopatra 1 being one of them) and i am writing to you because i would like to know how can i get reel strips for above mentioned games. If i understand correctly, recording each spin output should slowly fill each reel strip one by one? Is there anything inherently different about Pharous Fortune and Cleopatra 2(reels not being made that way) and how can one figure that out?

With your deconstruction reports i already understand enough to create my own slot machine. The whole purpose of this is to broaden my knowledge about slots in general. Also if possible i would like to play on a slot that should theoretically give the best return

Looking forward to your reply. Thank you in advance for your time.

Hi and welcome.
I can;t answer your questions, but I can advise that.... The casino gave you the tickets as bait. Once you are on the premises, you are super-likely to give them some of your money and get curious about the slots.
Looks to be working so far.
Pray that you do not have a big win soon as that will be the worst thing that can happen. Get's you addicted.
Best return on a slot will be a losing return. The more effort you put into analysing it, the more you will have invested. Youll hardly walk away without feeding it.
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

You really need to under stand your jurisdictions laws

They will tell you what type of “slot” machine you are working with

It’s very possible that you could be playing a lottery machine and not a (fully random) slot machine

Another thing is that the “same” machines CAN have different reel strips PER machines denominations
