Ask the Slot Expert: Where can I find a PAR sheet for a slot machine?

25 April 2012

I would like to know where I can find the PAR sheet of a slot machine?

Do you want the PAR sheet for a particular slot machine? That will be almost impossible to get. First, you have to find out which payback program a casino specified for the machine. Most machines have multiple payback programs available for them. Then, if the casino won't give you a copy of the PAR sheet, you have to request a copy from the manufacturer. Manufacturers do not release PAR sheets to the public, so I think you've reached a dead end.

Now, if you just want to see an example of a PAR sheet, you can find one in Casino Operations Management by Kilby and Fox or other casino management textbooks. Also, search the Internet for "par sheet." I found a few online including a link to one in my article Decoding a Slot Machine's PAR Sheet on this site.

Jackpots for all,
John
