I saw this pop up on my YouTube page and found it to be quite interesting. Fair warning, this takes almost two hours to watch the whole thing, but found it fascinating with all the little parts involved. No way could I keep it all straight.

I looked at the paytable and the reel strips and decided to take a shot at determining the expected return. If my calcs are right, I see an expected return of -24%.

I found it odd that the Lemon symbol appears on the first and third reels only, so it's basically a blocker on the first reel.

Reel strips and EV calc is as follows - happy to have someone check my math. I've assumed unweighted reels and one coin to play.

Of all the reading I'd done in EM slots, I never knew that some have symbols that don't appear on the paytable. I would think these are less collectible because of their lessened fun factor.
