    Now when I say "Most Popular Slot machines" I'm not asking what machines are loose or have high hit ratio slots. I'm asking what slot machines do most people play as of right now. For example: I know the wheel of fortune machines were or are popular at one time because people thought it was exciting to get the spin. They didn't care if they threw away hundreds of dollars. The point was to get the spin. I also enjoyed the slot machine triple cheeseburger for that similar reason. So does anyone know what are the most "popular" machines are today? Or if you don't know then what is your favorite one to play? BTW.. It's been a while since I been back to Vegas, which is why I'm asking.

    My favorite machines to play are the old penny ones, with maximum bets ranging from .45 to .90. Machines like Fox and Hound, Cops and Donuts, Striptease, Uncle Sam, My Rich Uncle, etc. I must be in the minority, because they are always empty. Binions has a great selection of old games like these.

    Don't know most popular, but for me, it's ones with mechanical reels, with a small number of paylines, or ones with cool special effects, bonus games or theme, like Wizard of Oz, Batman, Ghostbusters.

    I feel like Wheel of Fortune is still the most popular....it has 10000000000000000000000000000000 different variations. OK, I kid...but still....

    My favorite also happens to WOF though I play it infrequently because it simultaneously sucks away my money but BOY does that spin sound give me a rush!

    we also like to occasionally play the old ones like munsters,davinci diamonds,
    I dream of jeannie etc etc

    fox and hound is a really fun game but pretty scarce now,not even sure if there are any of them left downtown.

    the old machines also seem to pay out a bit more and keep you playing longer than the newer ones.

    Me and my brother got hooked last month, I even hit a "Phil" progressive worth $55. The M had only 2 machines and there was often a little wait to get on either one, the Stratosphere had 6 or 8 of them in different locations. Machine was a blast to play.

    It really varies from casino to casino and sometimes time of day.

    On our last trip the Michael Jackson one was always crowded at PH but at other places it was empty.

    Fox and Hound is my favorite, but is very hard to find. I won $300 on the one in Binions, and then my next visit, POOF it was gone.

    Thats why I like those machines so much, because I seem to be able to play a lot longer.

    At Seneca Niagara the Konomi games where you can get up to 400 free games are very popular.

    I think one is called China Shore and roman something or other as well as dynamite. I sat at one the other day and got 88 free games and when I had 15 left it retriggered to 300 free games. The 60c bet ended up paying $400. They also can give you a lot of free games and end up giving you a measly $2.00

    WoF and Monopoly slots (in many versions and variations) are always popular.

    Lord of The Rings slots are popular with me. :evillaugh

    Close to my list. Just play anything by Aristocrat or Aruze (especially Chinese Queen or 4 Beasts).

    Cops And Donuts is fun, but you hardly ever see it anymore! :(

    I got hooked on video slots with the old Monopoly machines, but on the newer ones I seldom win!

    Sun and Moon is my addiction along with Little Lucy and Mr. Cashman. I can't think of much newer with staying power with me.
