I'd play the $0.50 8/5 JOB.

so i got $250 freeplay in a drawing.

decided to play $0.05 50hand 8/5 JoB.

boy, was that a mistake.
at $12.50 a spin, I might as well played $1 8/5 triple play progressive where the jackpots were $5.5k, 4.5k, and 4.5k.

walked away with only 70% :(

That's ridiculous. Unless, of course, your goal is to get a handpay (and your goal is not to maximize your return/money).



Naw, I play for fun too. It's a stone cold blast, punching that button for all the money.

I get it, advantage play. But it's just a different way of enjoying life. And, on the $100 Wheel of Fortune, if you blank out its worth 1 credit, so you can cash out your Benjamin. The thing pays back pretty high most places.

I would say if you're doing slot play for that small of an amount, you need to pick a machine where you WON'T risk getting a hand pay. Do you really want a W-2G?

1 credit pay for blank-blank-blank is OK, but there are a lot of ways to not get a blank in every slot.

Some of us red-chipper types prefer to get something in the 95-180% range, instead of the 0-1000% range.

I suspect you get more in promo chips because of a higher minimum bet level. As a result, you're subjected to the variance faster. If you take the slot play, it's probably a lower variance (certainly if you can bet less).

don't know what kind of chips, but they can be used on even $ wagers only.


If the point of this thread is to discuss maximizing the EV, then this is ridiculous. We must absolutely know what kind of promo chips they are, as that affects the value of the chips tremendously (as has been noted by the posters before me).

Now if the point is to discuss maximum fun, then that is subjective and carry on; but it seems like you know best what is the most "fun" to you.
