I'm gonna start offering slot-math services so I'd like to hire someone to check my work, on at least my first few, to make sure I got it right. I wrote to a couple members here who I know used to do that work but they say they're too busy these days. Who's available, or would you recommend?

If you're suggesting yourself, please let me know how much you'd charge, since I need to make sure I'm charging at least as much as I'm paying for the double-check, to make sure I don't go into the red.

I actually did some slot-math for hire before, but it was a long time ago (the Wizard helped me back then), and I'd like my portfolio to be more recent and more extensive.

I likely won't accept anything too challenging like exploding wilds.

be advised Professor Slots, Doctor Gamble, The Jackpot Gents, The Slot Master, & many others are already taken!!
The Dice, the cards, they not only have no sense of justice but are seemingly endowed with a sense of cruel irony. This devolves from the 'nature of random'. Ironically, don't you see.

Depending on how complicated it is, I would be capable of double-checking some stuff. Even with the highly complicated things, there is a good chance that I could find mistakes, if any existed, even though I might not be able to confirm that it's 100% perfect.

My charge would be nothing. However, because of that, it would be a, "I'll get to it when I get to it," sort of thing.

I'll get to it pretty quickly if I find the game interesting.

I don't know current rates, I guess we'll find out if someone replies. I just found the report for the job I did ten years ago. It was six variations (RTPs) of a slot, three with a progressive contribution, scatters that triggered free spins, and a banked bonus (accumulator). I think I charged maybe $1000 for it.

Thank you very much for the generous offer! I might take you up on this, but I'm first gonna try to find a "pro" who's done this professionally.

Iíve been offered money for math work on slots, video keno, promotions, etcÖIíve just never accepted it. I guess, had I taken it, I could say Iíve done it professionally. Work was the same though.

Anyway, youíre very welcome. Let me know if you ever want anything looked over.

Okay, if you're really eager to work for free, then maybe you'd be willing to check the free samples I'm offering here? (The ones listed as being by Easy Vegas, not the ones from other sources, of course.) They're super-simple, no multiple coins, no bonus rounds, no wilds, no nuthin.

Edit, 2/19 20:45 Central: Mission, I hope you didn't start yet, because I just redid the free par sheets. I originally had too many blanks for them to alternate every other symbol on an electromechanical machine (or a representation of one).

FWIW, I just added an example of a fully-programmed slot in Javascript (sans graphics) to my new How to Program a Slot Machine article.

From your article:
"Play slots online
I suggest you play something other than slots because the slot odds are so bad."

It is not the odds but the RTP that is important. There are DK slots online where you are a 1:32 odds-on favorite to win on every game. You actually set your own odds and you can set them so you only lose one game in 33. The RTP is 97-98% because the payoff is 1:100. Long or short odds are not important. RTP is.

I know of several casinos where the best slot game has a better RTP than the best VP game. Plus, the slot games are usually rated better than the VP games.
