So I'm looking for a low volatility machine that pays pushes/half pushes fairly often. I've been getting decent freeplay offers lately and I want to play whatever's most likely to leave me with at least 1/2 my freeplay via frequent small wins. So far I've mostly been playing red/blue 7's Quick Hit (regular single play, not the triple play one) at $1.50 max and Hot Roll at $2 max. Both seem to be balanced machines and focus most of their return on medium sized wins, I'm looking for one where return is primarily focused on small wins and pushes/partial pushes. If nobody knows of any machine like that, I can stick with QH and HR. I mostly just want to turn my $50 in free slot play into $25-30 extra to play craps with.

Nope. Not Keno either. Guess I want the closest regular slot to VP as possible, even though you never know the actual EV with slots, where the return is concentrated tends to be consistent by the type right?

Not a local casino? I thought you lived where I did...lol Red/White/Blue is a good single line choice. I would consider older penny games that don't use many wild symbols like "Texas Tea". Of course those are difficult to find as well.

Honestly unless you go with single line Double Dimonds. There's really nothing that seems to be NOT volital on slots . After a few hours betting you will probably lose close to what you should be. Sometimes you run super good,sometimes you run super bad.

Older machines like Lobster Mania, TT, Stinking Ritch are supposed to be better in the long run however the variance can still be wicked.

If you're looking to just get half of your Free Play converted into cash somewhat regularly, are there not any penny machines upon which you could bet less than a Max Bet? Granted, Max Betting is generally better and the returns of penny machines are terrible, but on something like a Quick Hits Platinum on a $0.30 bet, you'd have to run pretty poorly not to get $25 off of $50 coin-in. Of course, if you do manage to go 167 spins without Free Games, you could run under 50%, but I think you would still generally get close.

Aside from that, if you can find them, two other games that you would generally at least get half back are Super 8 Line and a variation of the same game called Bell Fever. Other than the Bell Bonus on these games (which can pay many times over your bet) these games tend to be somewhat low volatility, especially by slot machine standards.

I also tend to agree with the single-line suggestions that have already been mentioned in the thread, but as stated, there is still some significant volatility there.

Again, though, if you're just trying to get half back, bet as low as you can stand.

I live in STL, the casino in question is River City. If you can use free slot play on VP there, boy have I been screwing up lol.

Trying to convert your free play to real cash from what I can see. I think I'm gonna follow this thread I might learn something with that kind of strategy. I might also try that Quick Hit game hope I will have decent gain on it.

Does anyone know about the slots in Lake Charles Louisiana? Gold Nugget or L'auberge. I am also looking for a low volatility one.
On a slightly different note, how can you tell which slots will generally have a higher rate of return?

Generally, less flashy = cheaper to license and operate = higher returning.
