    Due to the repetitive nature of the basic programming options with payouts, this will be the final update as any pattern to payouts with this list is now fairly obvious. Future posts will be standalone threads highlighting a single machine that contains an unusual deviation from the norm (e.g. fixed payout games and higher then average paybacks will be posted in their own thread).

    New 98% Payback Machine Now Clearly Posted
    Well, I knew it would come time for the competition to start advertising their max paybacks right on the machines fronts. Aruze is going to try to capture this thought his new Cherry Chance Hot Seven Machine.
    Here is the picture of this new slot:

    Updated April 2014:
    Batman- Classic TV Show Version
    Played this game on demo mode and it does have great entertainment value. I feel these "wonder wheels" will prove popular and the dynamic and various bonus games will be nostalgic (and slightly corny) for those who really remember the original Batman TV series and the creative characters and villains.

    Highlight: Payback is fixed, all versions at 88.5%, typical for a mega progressive.

    I just had to move this thread over from the "old" site since I have put so much time and energy keeping this list that I wanted to make sure it is not lost forever if something happens to the other website.

    This thread is a great pull for new forum members since it pops up as a search icon when " slot machine payouts" is googled. Several members found this site with this exact search.

    Thanks for keeping this thread.
    I saw an article in our local gaming guide where they did an article about Buffalo. It said that Buffalo is available in just four different paybacks- 88%, 90%, 92% and 95%. (figured you can at least have an additional Aristocrat game on the list since they are hard to get payback info on)

    Awesome list! I love playing at Barona where they have "Loose Troop Certified Loose Slots." The slots marked with the loose troop badge are guaranteed to be set at the manufacturer's highest payback percentage for that game.

    It's also important though to keep in mind, the payback percentage is OVER THE LONG TERM on average, and in the short term if you don't win then your payback percentage will be much lower. (And if you win really nicely of course, then your effective payback percent will be many times the long term average payback.)

    I have read several articles here and there that say something like this: "If a machine's payback percentage is 90%, then this means that if you put $100.00 in the machine and play for an hour, at the end of that hour on average you can expect to have 90 dollars left." Nothing could be farther from the truth!! Unless you're talking about "on average" from doing this hundreds of thousands of times!

    In reality, most of the time if you put $100. into a machine, you are NOT going to hit the top payout, or the second top payout, or the third top payout, etc., and all those big ones are calculated into the long term payback percentage. So on average, most of the time when you play a machine, in the short term your effective payback percentage is going to be much lower than the theoretical long term payback!

    And every once in a while, when your short term luck is good, you'll win and your payback percentage will be over 100% for that session. But on average, most of the time, it will be a loss, and your actual short term payback will be much less than the long term theoretical average payback percentage.

    I know most players here probably know this intuitively, but I think it's important to remember when looking at those numbers. Those average payback percentages include the biggest wins on the machine, which happen very infrequently, and so most short term sessions won't even come close to those payback numbers.

    Except when you get lucky. (And that's the fun part, and the thing that keeps us playing, even though we know what we know!)

    I didn't realize these were over here. Thank you so much, Slotspert.
    I still think we need a stickie with links to all the "Bang for your Buck info"
