Here's a big win on a WMS Awesome Reels machine. $34k on a $2 bet. I doubt that these come around very often.

Yeah, not too often I would think... :)

To compare, on the same night I received the HOTD Jackpot, I also got this, which I believe is the top symbol for that particualr WMS game:

$1200

It's nice to see, though, that some of the games at least have the chance for the higher payouts with a low bet!

There is one other Aristocrat 243x game, Buffalo, that has stacked buffalo symbols that can give you a pretty nice payout if you get them on all 5 reels, but nowhere near $1m.



If I am not mistaken, Buffalo is not a 243 way game. I believe it shows four symbols per reel, that would make it a 1024 way game.

Just to round this out, after doing some checking, it appears they get around the potential for the really large jackpots through the following:
1. No wilds on reel 1
2. No sequential wilds on reel 5
3. No sequential wilds with the top-pay symbol
4. No sequential top-pay symbols on any reels

So it would seem the best you could do with the top symbol is effectively a 9x multiplier, although you could theoretically get a full screen of the second-highest symbol for a $30375 payoff on a penny denomination, 625 credit bet...



No, you can effectively get a 27x multiplier with the top symbol. Wilds filling up reels 2, 3, and 4, which means 3^3 = 27. So if that game pays also pays 5000 credits for a single line at 1 credit like Carnival of Mystery, it will pay $33,750 for a $6.25 wager.

Yikes! You're right of course- my "higher math" skills are really going down the tubes...
