    Sorry if this has been posted here but I'm curious as to what the largest hand pay is that you've had with the smallest amount you've put in to get it? If this has been posted please point me in the right direction.

    I'll go first.

    Last January (2015) I ventured to my local MGM casino on my birthday with my dad and brother. I took $100 and decided to give it a shot. At first I was down and couldn't hit a single thing, this after hopping around to different slots.

    Well I decided to play the Buffalo Stampede progressive. There were 6 machines in total back to back so 3 on each side. I played an end one.

    I put in in a voucher that I had cashed out on from a previous machine and decided to try my luck.

    I bet the minimum of $.75 and nothing. Pressed the button a second time and nothing still. On the 3rd hit of the minimum bet amount ($2.25 total in) this happened:

    I flew to Vegas for 4 nights the next day and won $1,100 while there which basically paid for the trip. That was a wild birthday for sure.

    Good question. No hand pays but a 40$ bet got me this at bellagio last February. Some one will know the machine.

    My biggest JP/Money in ratio is probably a 4k hit on a 10 Times Pay machine when I was just throwing a few 20s in various machines. 10x 10x Double Bar. Not sure how much actual coin in I had, but obviously it wasn't much since I started with a 20. It was probably within $40 of coin in at most.

    I've had some bigger wins but that's definitely the biggest hit I've ever had when I'm just throwing in a 20 here or there to see what I can hit quick.

    Orleans. April of 2013. Was walking past the $1 progressive bank of DDB machines, and noticed the jackpot was well over $7,000. Almost twice a normal royal. There was one seat open, so I sat down and stuck a hundy in. With $10 left in the machine, I hit the royal. $7,776

    I almost never play the dollar progressives, but I have hit THREE of them in the last 6 years. Twice on Super Bowl Sunday's. I'm hoping to repeat in a couple weeks!

    I think the record holder on VMB was playing Flintstones for under $4 a spin and hit a WAP for around $300k.

    Another member hit $145k on FP. I guess that's the biggest ROI since not even 1 cent was at risk.

    Not a huge pay out but on a 25 cent money machine betting full $1.25 a spin hit 5k. But what I think even adds to the 'story' is that I spun once after to take off the hit and moved down the row. Hubby sat at my just hit machine and literally as I said it just hit, won't hit again yep 2nd spin he hit $1,250. Yeah I know it's all random and so on but...

    Well, now I am for sure never wary about sitting at a machine that shows just had a pay off.

    If you're talking about how fast in a single session:

    $12,000 on the 10th spin on a $25 machine at Aria

    If you're talking about payout relative to an individual bet:

    $ 1,250 on a $3.00 original Wizard of Oz machine at Mandalay Bay (400x)
    $12,000 on a $25 Double Triple Diamond at Aria (480x)
    $ 3,600 on a $4.00 Triple Diamond at Cosmo (900x)

    I've also had a couple of 5 credit wins on the first spin on $100 machines at Caesars.

    July 4th at Gold Coast. I sat down at a Quick Hits machine just to keep my girlfriend company. I put in a $20 and hit max bet. It was under $2.00 closer to $1.50 I think. I never play slots so when it hit the big progressive I thought I broke it. I kinda tapped my girlfriend and said WTF and she starts hopping around and yelling. She showed me what I won and I hit cash out I was done.

    I played a little VP after that and when we went back home to Palms I did it again on STP.

    Once in a lifetime is one bet one spin jackpot and I did it twice on the same day.

    First time I've ever brought home more then I brought.:evillaugh

    Long time ago (1998) in Las Vegas Club I was ready to call it a night and my wife wanted to try one more machine. I sat down at a $1 Five Times Reel Slot machine put in a $20 and hit for $1500 on 2nd spin! We're low rollers so that was pretty good amount for us. I was determined not to give it all back so I played quarters the next 2 days and hit 4 more of the exact same style machines for 750 each!!!! My mom had passed away 5 months earlier, so I'm sure she had something to do with it. That's best I've ever done on slots as I usually play the ponies or do a little table games.
