According to the Nevada State Gaming Control Board, the average payback percentage for penny slots in Reno is 92.78% and for nickel denomination 95.97%. I realize this is an average, not a constant among all slot machines.

So when it comes to a particular slot machine where you can choose the denomination, such as Lock it Link, does the programming pay a higher percentage if I pick nickel? If not and it's the same, then I'll just stick with penny.

I don't play it often but I was wondering about this.

Any game I've been involved with had the ability for the operator to select a different percentage for each denomination. I'm just not sure how they classify such a machine, either 1 cent or 5 cent. Here in Colorado, they have a category specifically for Multi-Denom, but you can't really gather any info about how they set each denomination or even which denominations are available.
I heart Crystal Math.

I'm not so sure you'll be getting something by raising denominations. I've seen nickel 6/5 VP and the same thing for $1s, on the same machines, multiple multiple dozens like it in the same casino.

In Nevada, slot machine statistics have a separate value for multi-denomination machines.

Here's something that surprised me: for the 12 months ending 7/31/2018, in Nevada, nickel machines had a higher percentage return than quarter or (non-Megabucks) dollar machines.
