Gayle’s commitment to educating the gambling public began almost 20 years ago, when she walked into a Las Vegas casino and experienced for the first time the thrill that comes with winning even a small bet. She made up her mind then and there to learn every game in the casino, and a short time later resolved to make a career out of sharing her insights with other gamblers. She had always considered herself to be a good teacher – she believes in keeping things simple – and decided that she would commit herself to showing newbies how to become knowledgeable, intelligent gamblers.

Top 200 Slots

16 August 2002

As mentioned in the feature article of Slots Report #35 newsletter, following are
Top Slots #54-101. An explanation of the calculations follows:

Slot manufacturers offer casinos a slot payout percentage range--lowest to highest--plus an average hit frequency when all lines/reels are activated for that particular version. Note: the participating slot makers have all confirmed the published results with the exception of WMS. The data for WMS was collected from previously published stats, but not confirmed by the company.


The data was sorted using this method of ranking: 1)highest payout % in the range first, then by
2) smallest average hit frequency and finally by 3) lowest range % in the range. I want to make it perfectly clear to all slot players that the actual average payout percentages assigned and programmed for a particular slot is the decision of casino management and not the slot manufacturers. It is up to the casinos to select what percentage they want to run for which denomination and which line configuration. Also, as much as 50% of the total payout percentage can be reserved for bonus round(s) with multi-line slot types.

Therefore, we can conclude with certainty that the highest payout % for a particular slot will not be available at all casinos.
We can also conclude that only in a few cases, will the payout % be lower than the lowest % in the range of that particular slot..
Some of these slot versions listed have the same payout percentage range and average hit frequency, therefore we group them together as each slot in that category has the potential to be a ‘top slot' and should be rated at the same level. Keep in mind that the higher payout %'s are an average over a period of time. No slot will maintain a high payout % all the time. In the end, my goal is to provide a slot players' guide for the top slots.

Now, let's get to those results.
