Slot Machine Odds
Slot machine odds vary greatly depending on what type of machine you are playing. A progressive machine gives you much worse odds of winning compared to a straight slot machine, yet the payouts are much higher. For a one reel game, the odds of winning are about 1 in every 64, while a three reel game is about 1 in 643. With a progressive game that pays out hundreds of thousands of dollars, you can imagine that the odds of winning would be much higher, probably approaching one in a million.
