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.
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.
