Slot machines are a game of chance with some really cool features. Some slot machines have animated graphics added to the sound effects. If you want to have a lot of fun playing games then you might want to learn about the odds. The odds are what we consider play in your favor. In other words if you have high odds then you are going to win a little more from a machine than one with lower odds. The house edge is always there in slot machines or other casino games. All you can do is try to win against these advantages that the casinos have. To do that you need to know about the various machines.

Below we have a chart that is based on Las Vegas Slot Machines. You should realize that this table doesn't include everything, and will not speak for online games, but it gives you an idea of what to look for when you go online or to a different casino. Most slot machines have their specifications online to help you learn how to win.

There are a few things you should note from this above table. First of all we included the machines that have the highest return, which means they have the better odds for you to win. Secondly you should look at the very top of the table. The table is based on five cent or nickel slots. This means the lowest coin you can play is five cents. There are some machines that accept pennies or quarters. Still other machines will accept no less than a dollar. The most popular machines in Vegas or even online are the nickel slots. They offer the high returns and therefore better odds, but more than that you actually get a decent payout.

A slot machine talks in coins rather than dollars. So if a pay table says 10,000 coins that is the return amount based on the type of coin you played. If you played fifteen cents for the max jackpot on a three reel slot accepting 3 coins and won the jackpot you get 10,000 times 5 cents. For that machine the payout is 500 dollars. That's a pretty great return but keep in mind the odds for winning that particular jackpot is very low. Usually it is around 2 percent. It is better to think in terms of long term play for small winnings and minimal loss.
