I found a machine with 114% payback in NV

Post by Joblin »

I might be interested in revealing the location of the machine to someone with the bankroll and time to take advantage of it.

It's a 25 cent DDB machine. It's basically programmed wrong and pays double for the 4 of a kinds.

According to my calculations, someone should be able to make more than 100 dollars an hour playing this machine.

I only know of one other person that already knows about it, so it's playable at this moment. No guarantees on how long the gravy train will last.

Nice. That's happened before when progressives are incorrectly implemented. On a non-progressive, 7/5 DDB would pay 114.8% with all quadrilaterals doubled.

I can't see this game requiring much of a bankroll. It would be really hard to lose more than a couple thousand before the big, boosted payoffs start rolling in.

I'm in NV but busy with other stuff. If you don't mind, come back and give us some details after it burns out. A pic would be fun to see.

We've heard of these unicorns before and when a picture is presented, there is often some gimmick or other downgrade that was overseen.

Max bet 5, 6 or 10 coins? Would definitely need to hear what the lower payouts are too on this one to get excited.

As of tonight the machine is out of service.

It was set up on a progressive, and all the other machines were 10 coins per bet to hit the progressive.

This one was only 5 coins for the same jackpot.

I did hit a few of the good hands with kickers in the last few days. But didn't make a ton of money.

Sorry about that. You deserved a bigger reward for detecting the error. I could easily miss something like that when scouting a casino because I don't often take the time to look at every machine.

I'm not seeing the image in your post, so I copied the clickable link below:

Denomination is not visible, but you said 25c. Analyzer indicates 115.8% as shown, not including the value of the meter progression.

Thanks for the pic, dinghy, and for the thread, Joblin. If the progressive amounts shown were typical, it looks like there might have been a total meter rise of 0.75% to 0.80% on the 5 quads if all meters were rising at the same rate of coin-in (and I recall my quick rule-of-thumb calculations correctly). Of course, there is considerable expected deviation involved in those calcs from the actual meter rise, and easier ways to calculate meter rise by direct observation of the machine in question (when the jackpots were operational).

Thanks for the picture. One possibility is that this money came from another progressive type machine that was removed.
