    I see a lot of VMB'rs get hand pays. What denomination of slot are you playing when you get those??

    For me, mostly multi-hand video poker at 50 cent, $1, or $2 level.

    The overwhelming majority of mine have been on $5 Video Poker (and once on a $5 Top Dollar). But I've also had some at $2, $1 $.50 and $.25 VP as well (the quarter and fifty cent hand pays came on multiplay play STP games).

    I play mostly $1 VP with some quarter and fifty cent. Usually single line, but occasionally multi line.
    Sometimes the "hand pay" can be a misnomer. Some casinos you can cash a TITO for up to $1,199 and not get paid by hand. Others like my home casino at MSS pays you by hand even if there is no W2G involved.

    2015 - 15 W2-G hand pays

    Wynn - .25 Forbidden Dragons and .01 Mu Guying
    Cache Creek - .01 Whopper Reels
    Harrah's Reno - .01 Auzure Dragon, .01 Pompeii, $5 Double Triple Diamond, .01 Frog Princess
    the D - .01 Buffalo
    SLS - $5 Double Bonus
    Caesars - $1 5 line Triple Red Hot 7s, $1 Black Velvet 7s

    There are guys who have hit many more handpays on this board and put me to shame . . .

    Most of mine are $1 machines (both slots and VP) betting $25 to $50 a spin. Second would be $25 machines like Top Dollar and Wheel of Fortune. Good luck!

    $5 -3 Reelers are my gem. I have yet to get a handpay on a penny machine- which is my passion!

    Ditto! Winning a hand pay on a penny machine would be the icing on the cake.

    My hand pays have been $5 top dollar, $5 three reel machines, $1 and $2 machines - 3 credit/3 reel.
    On pennies, I have run the coin up to about a thousand with multiple wins in one sitting but no hand pay yet.

    Interesting. A question, your denomination is pennies but what is your total bet?

    In the last two years I have had 9 handpays on penny machines, but I am always playing total bet ($3.00-$5.00)

    If I had been playing less than total bet I would not have hit handpays.

    Penny, $1, $2, $5, $10, $25, $100...bet per spin ranges from $3 (penny) to $200 (hundo machines). Nickel, quarter, and 50 cent machines are still on my list.

    Two cent machines betting 60 cents (twice), quarters ($1.25) and dollars ($3-$5). I've come close and missed by a nose on pennies a few times which is actually a good thing.

    Bet what is comfortable for you and you just never know!

    My one and only came betting 2 cents. It was a 50 cent overall bet. The nice thing about pennies is you can get some pretty big hits without getting caught in the paperwork of an official jackpot.

    I hear you on that... Depending on the game, I would usually play at the denomination which is one less than the max. So on a wonder 4 , I play $6.40 . On a Kronos , it would be $1.50 , $2.00 on the Buffalo etc. I find I do better on those triggers. I do jump to max bet when whenever I am up, but sure as the day turns into night , I never get the hits, and it takes my money:(
    Didn't get me wrong , many times, I've hit just shy of a handpay, which in a way are better than a jackpot, but just minus that sense of accomplishment .

    Mostly $5 single line DDB Video Poker. Any 4 OAK unfortunately triggers a W2G of $1250, up to $10,000. I'm strongly considering sticking to $2 Boner Deluxe ($800 4OAK payouts) to avoid this on the next trip.

    With the popularity of DDB, I would like if the IGT's of the world designed more games like the .25 bartop progressives with $1199 royal payouts, except for higher denoms.

    Had them all over the place.

    From penny ($4-$10), dollar (often in the $9-$30 per spin), $5 (usually $15).....rarely play above that denomination.
