the 2nd prize is not linear... $7.00, $15.00, $22.00, $30.00 and $37.00. So the best bet would be 2 coins or 4 coins.

I can say on some penny machines I've noticed, the people playing minimum bets get more bonus rounds and fewer jackpot hits. Obviously this means they will win less in the bonus round by playing the minimum and Progressive Jackpots are set amounts, so it makes sense that they would get the lower paying sequence vs the higher.

Last time I was in Virginia City there was a very similar machine. I can’t remember which one and a few have closed. You could find a lot of old slots there for years.

KevinAA,

I read it as $7.50, $15.00, $22.50, $30.00, and $37.50, which is fully linear.

I'm sure that's what it is. It's hard for me to see that.

hello patent which states exact subject of the title

"Gaming device having odds of winning which increase as a player's wager increases"

https://patents.google.com/patent/US7029395B1/en

The present invention provides a gaming device, wherein the game requires the same average investment from a player to win an award, including a jackpot award, regardless of the amount that the player bets at any one time. The award can be unchanging, e.g., $10,000, each time a player plays the gaming device. The award can also vary such as with a progressive jackpot, i.e., the jackpot builds until a player “hits” the jackpot. The game enables the average investment necessary to win the jackpot to be uniform by varying the odds of winning the jackpot as the player's bet varies.

--->>> That is, a player betting less money needs to play the game more times, on average, to win the jackpot. Likewise, a player betting more money needs to play the game less times, on average, to win the jackpot. The average overall bet or investment thus remains constant despite the player's betting habits or betting ability. <<<---
