Seriously contemplating of moving away from penny bets and going to nickel slots, especially after I realized that on Treasures Of Troy, full line of Helen is worth $250 on a nickel slot versus $50 on a penny slot. That's nothing to sneeze at. The Multiplier is 3 at the most, so at .15 cents, Helen is worth $750 That's just for 1 line. If you play 5 lines at .75, and get a full screen of her, she is worth over $3,000. Excellent hit for a .75 bet. Even the Letters are worth $22-$45 for a single line. At .75, they are worth $110-225. Once again, excellent for a .75 bet.

I encourage it. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. The higher the bet the higher the payout. The more you bet the higher the payout. No reason to keep playing at the low levels when there is greater rewards and better bonus payouts at the higher betting level. Even the bonus rounds pay out and more often at a higher level. There is no way to lose by exposing yourself to higher payouts. Don't let others discourage you in your ventures. Your past exploits show that you are able to conquer all that you set out to accomplish and achieve all that you desire, even if you come across stumbling blocks as you venture through life......

Bet more, win more... unless you're not winning.

Remember that you're still playing a negative expectation game.
May the cards fall in your favor.

Bad idea. $3000 is the hassle of a tax form, $600 isn't. If you want to up your bet and you want variance, play 3-reel quarter or dollar slots. The hold will usually be the same or better on quarter games than pennies for the same bet amount. 75c is three quarters, after all.

But probably a little less negative going up in denomination.

I thought of the $3,000 Tax handpay, but, I have never seen a full screen of Helen. ;) I might get a 4 in a line 5 times, at best, and on a 5 cent slot, 3 times, it comes up to $225. There is a $45 difference between 4 Helens and 5 Helens on the penny slot, which is why the difference is so much between $3,0000 and $225 on a nickel bet times 3. ;)
