Ask the Slot Expert: Slot machine paytable quiz

28 August 2019

Sometimes it's difficult to figure out why a machine has paid you what it paid you when the game has multiplying wild symbols. A few days ago I was playing a three-reel, single-line video slot from Everi called Fascination. I had a few combinations land on the payline that took me a while to figure out why they paid what they did. Following is the paytable for the machine and some winning combinations. First, see if you can figure out what they're worth. Next week I'll post what they're worth and the following week I'll post how the payout is calculated.

The following table lists the symbols used in the paytable and quiz combinations.

Symbol   Description
-Blank
CCherry
BBar
7B7-Bar
77
WWild
2W2x Wild
3W3x Wild
4W4x Wild

The following table is the paytable for the game.

ComboPays
W W W500
7 7 750
7B 7B 7B20
any 3 mixed 7, 7B   15
B B B10
any 3 mixed B, 7B5
C C C5
any 2 C2
any 1 C1

Here are some combinations. How much do they pay?
