    Anyone know if a good website to get an idea of what your expect coin in would be based on bankroll and per spin bet and putting in an estimated hold percentage?

    Hold percentage is over a long, long run. You can easily put $100 into a dollar machine and be done in minutes with no wins. You can also put in $100 and hit a jackpot and be able to play much longer. And, another factor comes into play. The higher the jackpot/higher pays are, the higher the chance of going dry. If the biggest jackpot is only $100, you will last longer. If the jackpot on a dollar machine is $80,000... you will have a higher chance of ruin and less coin in.

    For example:

    Machine A is $1 a spin and only has ONE winning combination. If a 90% hold, the machine has to keep $90 out of every $100 that is played.

    Machine B is the same, except only one possible win of $1,000. Guess how long you money will last?

    Add in all the little wins and it gets difficult.

    Even VP with a fixed payout table still has some issue. If you never get the Royal (1 in 40,000 hands), your payback is well less even on a 100% machine.
