I see people all the time changing their denomination while playing slots. They start with dimes then change to quarters etc, all while playing the same game. So my question is, by changing the denomination all the time, does this affect the odds in any way? It is common knowledge that slots have some sort of computer program. Does varying the denomination change the program? An example would be when you (stay) on one denomination constantly, would it give you a better chance at hitting the bonus? Or, if they are changing their denomination constantly playing the same game, would this somehow affect the eventual outcome of a bonus or line hit wins?

I hope this makes sense.

Quarter slots generally pay better than nickel ones so switching to higher denominations is better.

I don't know about switching denominations around, but you should always bet the most/max coin with each play.

If I was playing single coin VP, I might consider pressing my nickel bet to 10 cents when I'm down 10 coins, then pressing again to 15 cents when I'm down another 20 coins, then pressing again to 20 cents when I'm down another 30 coins, then pressing again to 25 cents when I'm down another 40 coins. I'm just waiting for something to hit to get me back above 0 then I'll lower my bet back down to 5 cents. With these multi-denomination machines, I could start pressing quarters the same way, then eventually dollars. I haven't tried it, but I'd have to play a game that didn't have a horrible pay table for lower hands.

You simply spin the reels, take your chances and hope luck is on your side. After all, players do not have any control over the combinations that will show up or whether or not a jackpot will hit. And quarter slots are perfect for those players who want to try their hand at the jackpot but without breaking the bank.

I'm not sure how all these older threads are suddenly appealing to Monkey, but I do know that there are some machines with different RTP programmed for different denoms on the same console. I don't know that that is true in every case.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Thatís correct. Most machines have the ability to have a different pay table at each denom, but itís up to the casino however they want to configure it.
I heart Crystal Math.

I still believe Rob Singer, but I never heard of him until 2020.
