Ok, so with the sale I decided to have a bit of fun, and experiment with the slots. I bought 100 spin tokens + 15 from PvE + 3 I accumulated through videos. I used all of the tokens and recorded all my spins in order and got the numbers through Excel. My results are as follows:

Totals:
Spins 118
Credits 4450000
Gold 430

Credits:
10k Credits 23
20k Credits 6
50k Credits 8
100k Credits 7
500k Credits 2
1M Credits 2


Gold:
10 Gold 21
20 Gold 5
40 Gold 3


Stars:
Bronze Star 8
Silver Star 1
Gold Star 2


Items:
Reactor Tokens 3
AntiCritical 9
CriticalStrikes 4
15 Med Packs 5
25 Campaign Passes 1
2 Big Shot Muto. 2
Exp. Drink 3
Exp. Jar 1
Triple EXP 1

Mutants:
Mantidroid 1

(Some) Notable Percentages:
10k Credits 19.5%
1M Credits 1.7%
10 Gold 17.8%
Gold Star 1.7%
Reactor Tokens 2.5%

Overall, I think I did fairly well (Spending ~$15). I may end up continuing with this later today to accrue more data. I feel I did a lot better with regards to prizes in the first half of my spins, but thats just eye-ing and feeling. I'll have to further analyze that through the power of Excel.

I didn't keep as close track as you except for gold which averaged +4 per spin (in agreement with your findings)

I found a site about 6 months back that had the actual odds for every outcome in slots. Forgot where I found it and don't know how to get back to it. Might be worth a search for you.

OK, so I spun it another ~150 times, for a total of 268 (well, 269, I have 269 data points but Excel only added them up to 268. So there's 1 missing somewhere)

Totals:
Spins 268
Credits 7000000
Gold 1270


1025

I think my spins are getting worse (most likely due to regressing to the mean). But hey, I got Prince Scorpion and Terrordoll from the reactor on my very first Japan spin ever; using 1 of the tokens from the slots (had 2 previously)

I still have about the same average of gold/spin; right now mine is at 4.7 Gold/spin along with 26k Credits/spin

I also have 88 more spin tokens and may buy more if I feel like it. But I will probably wait until after Friday when the sale is over. For all we know Kobojo could have skewed the odds during the sale lol.

FYI I don't really care about "making my money back". Just having fun with the slots and see what comes out of it (though a jackpot would be nice bonus)

Do you have a link to a document or screenshot of that table? in case Kobojo decides to take down this thread

Yes. I have the document on my computer since its my data and I made it. It's an Excel spreadsheet. I guess if anyone wants it I can upload it.

The screenshot posted is just the updated version of my data from the first post. I just did a screenshot as it is easier to read then my copying and pasting the numbers.

Yea the facebook version has an additional prize which is the magnetic key which might further lower the percentages

I think I'm done :P I've spun it enough times.

Now what to do with my 5 reactor tokens... I have 0/5 for Gothic, 3/5 for Super and 1/5 for Japan. I have all the mutants I want in everything with exception of the "Freebies". (Terrordoll is amazing btw; once I added it to Autonorush and Star Trooper, I went like 40-5 when attacking. There was a 25 streak somewhere in there as well.)

Is the option to buy jackpot tokens an android only option or was it a FB option that no longer exists? (Or am I stupid and missed it?)

It was an Android promotion a short while ago; it is no longer available. I believe it lasted about 3-5 days and the cost was 20 Jackpot tokens for $2.99 USD. During this time Facebook did not have it, but only had bonus jackpot tokens when you buy Gold; but it was not a notable amount for free tokens.

Anyways, here's my updated list of spins. You should not that the % of Magnetic Keys should be higher, as it is only available on Facebook, and most of my spins were on Android.

For 6 Magnetic Keys in about 200 spins on Facebook = 3%

Totals:
Spins 819
Credits 23820000
Gold 3950

What am I going to do with all these bronze stars!? I'm about to reach 100 of them...

Thank you for the update! It's risk/reward. I want Saggitaurius and in 200 spins didn't win one mutant. Statistically, any of the low numbers could be statistical outliers. Good work on it!

Your right. Also, I found it strange that the items like regen did not show up until well over halfway through those spins. The reactor tokens were mainly from the first half and decreases (if won at all) in the second half. I guess it is due to working towards the mean.

I wanted a Sagitaurus as well. And a Space Princess. And a Haggis. Basically anything besides the stupid Mantidroid or Blood Berry.

So, I was talking to friend about the slots and he said that he has a strong impression that the rewards won by spending 10 gold are better than when when spending a token.

Anyone heard anything about this?

I was 99% sure, but after asking to the appropriate person i'm know 100%: There is no difference between using Gold or Tokens. Precisely the same probabilities :)

I wanted to do an experiment like this one on gold spins, but I don't have this kind of money to put on a facebook game.

Who is your contact Hugo?

My "contact" is our game designer who created the Jackpot (in case you did not notice i'm from Kobojo's team)
