Best of John Robison
Thanks for the kind words about my columns.
It's not true that higher denomination machines have better chances of hitting. What is true is that higher denomination machines tend to have higher long-term paybacks than lower-denomination machines. Your chances of hitting something on any given spin may or may not be better than on lower-denomination machines. The chances of hitting something is called hit frequency.
On a machine on which you can change denominations, the reel layouts (and therefore the long-term paybacks) may or may not be the same for the different denominations. The video poker paytables usually get better when you increase denomination, so the slot paybacks may also get better. We can tell the long-term paybacks of different video poker paytables, but unfortunately we can't tell a thing about slot paybacks.
Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
