So I have 50 dollars in free slot play as a tier renewal gift and I'm not that big of a slot player so I was just going to bring 60 bucks and whatever I get out of this to the craps table. My question is are there any slots that are known to stay even for a while/ hand out free spins a lot that pay modest amounts? Because I'll be happy to get even money just fine. I'm thinking about playing the one with the dice bonus round that pays you on every roll until you get a 7 but if you guys have a better suggestion please tell me!

Slots tend to have house edges around 10%. So no.

If the goal is to cash out as close to $50 as possible and minimize variance or swings, I would play
1) Electronic Blackjack
2) Electronic Roulette
3) Jacks or Better Video Poker

If it must be played on a slot machine I would watch some people playing penny slots and try to find one with a lot of lines where people seem to be getting small wins every time they spin the reels.

Hope this helps!

Definitely not penny slots -- the worst payback percentages.

I would try the IGT Wheel of Fortune game only because I believe all of the machines in all of the casinos have the same payback/hold since it's a wide area progressive system. I don't know that the WOF machines pay back any more than any other slot, but at least you will face a consistent enemy no matter what casino you are in.

I know they got one of those at Hollywood STL because when I play video poker in the high limit room I always hear "WHEEL. OF. FORTUUUUNNNE!" Every 2 minutes. Whats the min/max on it? I want to bet 5 bucks at a time so I get at least 10 trys and I want to do so while playing all available lines.

Let us talk GEOGRAPHY first. In some places those electronic craps and electron roulette games are legally slot machines.

If the casino will only allow slot play on what most people call slots .... I think the order is:
VP slot machines first.

If the casino won't allow that, or you don't know how to play VP properly.,

Then try a generic slot machine (nothing with fancy graphics that are licensed) of reasonably high denomination.

Avoid penny slots.

Yeah we don't have electronic craps or electronic roulette here. The slot I was thinking of has a craps based bonus round but thats about it. I might just go with that one after all.

The penny slots have a very low payback but his stated goal was not to maximize EV, it was to milk as much money as possible at the lowest variance, thus giving him as large a guaranteed bankroll for craps as possible. The theoretical on the 25 cent or dollar WoF might be 2x as high but the variance is also much higher meaning he is much more likely to end up with close to zero.
