Did you every wonder how a machine can have a 95.6 % hold? Or any other specific number above 75% in Nevada Well it’s a function of a formula that says 1. The percent is part the probability of winning 2. The amount you win 3. The probability of losing 4. The amount you bet

So that formula is: EV = P (win) x (\$payoff) + P (Loss) x (- \$bet)

Slot Machine Old Mechanical Machines had 20 symbols per reel (typically) counting blank spaces. Slot Machines - How do they calculate how they pay?

How do Slots Work? Stat Reminder: What’s the probability of tossing heads on a coin? 1/2 What’s the probability of rolling a one on a single die? 1/6 What’s the probability of drawing the queen of hearts? 1/52

Back to that old machine A single reel has 20 symbols and one jackpot symbol…..say a lemon A single reel has 20 symbols and one jackpot symbol…..say a lemon The probability of getting the lemon is….? The probability of getting the lemon is….?

Another Stat Reminder If I say what is the probability of tossing a head on a coin….you say ½ If I say what is the probability of tossing a head on a coin….you say ½ If I say what is the probability of getting a tail on the first toss and the second toss of the coin……….. If I say what is the probability of getting a tail on the first toss and the second toss of the coin……….. You have to multiply the probabilities and we know it is less likely to happen You have to multiply the probabilities and we know it is less likely to happen ½ * ½ = 1/4 ½ * ½ = 1/4

So………. On that old machine with 3 reels, 20 symbols the probability of hitting 3 lemons is…… On that old machine with 3 reels, 20 symbols the probability of hitting 3 lemons is…… 20x20x20 = 8000 20x20x20 = 8000

SLOT MACHINES Today’s machines can have hundreds of virtual reels: More than 300, and they don’t have to be the same number on each reel.

Now Look So now we have say 256 symbols per reel…and the jackpot is…. 256 x 256 x 256 = or16,777,216

Or a slight change to 300 symbols per reel is: 1/300 x 1/300 x 1/300 = 27,000,000 To 1
