Is there any published data on the frequency of getting a spin on the $100 single coin Wheel of Fortune machines?

I don't know the answer to that, but one interesting feature is that if you roll a blank, no symbols on the pay line, it pays back one unit.

That depends on the game. There are various versions of the $100 Wheel of Fortune. I know the version of the game you are talking about.

There are other versions where "blanks" do not give you your money back or a free spin.

I hit 2/3 "Double Diamond" on the $25 machine at Caesar's. So close to a 20k hit.

My only experience with higher limit WoF is the $5 machines. I have had some pretty good luck with these machines... $200-300 gives you a good shot (60-70%) to hit the spin. Extrapolating 2-credit $5 to 1-credit $100... $2-3k would be necessary. Obviously, considering the $100 wheel payouts this can't be possible, but it's all I've got.

I have a buddy who put $3,000 into a $100 WOF machine at Bellagio. (As I wrote on my forum, this was NOT me.) He had 80 plays on that $3,000 and not even one spin. His biggest wins were $500.

Hence the question: any published stats on how many plays to get a spin?

I've seen some discussions that ranged from 20 to 40. He played 80 and got nada.

Maybe it's got a better return than the lower denominations, but that doesn't sound that unreasonable. Just unfortunate he got a bad run while playing that higher denomination. *been there, done that

Nobody ever complains when they repeatedly bonus unusually close together, of course.

Even if it went 120-150 or more if you are saying it's normally 20-40. That's not even that statistically abnormal

I remember going about 300+ spins on a supposed 30 spin bonus.

It happens.

Now if the guy played 10,000+ spins we'd have some data.

I love the $100 WOF machines. I've had some really lucky runs only a few weeks ago where I put $1,000 in and hit a bonus after 2 pulls. While waiting for the attendant for a $5,000 hand pay...I started playing the machine directly to the right of it. Had put another $1,000 in and hit a bonus after 4 pulls and hit for $3,000. Other trips I felt like was feeding the machine and pull after pull nothing. Honestly though, I've hit bigger wins on $5 and $25 machines. Still nothing higher than a single hit of $10,000. I'm still chasing that big hit!! LOL

It sounds like it! Good luck and welcome to WoV!
