Should I keep spending my gold on the slot machine?

So far I've spent around 5k gold on it and my best prize has been a Zodiac. I've only just started the game, so what are the best things to do with my gold?

Do not spend gold on slots. It is a waste in my opinion.

The slots pay out a long term average value of 6-8 gold per pull, so I'd say no. However, all slots take in more than they pay out and there's plenty of people who play them even though all their money is inevitably ground away. If you find that you can't resist playing this game's slots anyway, then I would suggest never gambling in the real world. Once you're addicted, a lot of happiness in life withers away.

As for spending gold, don't buy any mutants you can breed (you can't breed "legendarys" unless you use the same type as one of the parents). Upgrade the breeding center because it increases your chances of breeding "rare" mutants. Buy some gold stars when they have a '3 for 500 gold' sale.
Don't use gold to increase Evo Center. The game is designed so that even low level players can make it into the top 1% of PvP. It does this by usually offering you opponents near your Evo level.
Always remember that game world differs from real world because when you buy your way up in real world, you can spend most of your time beating on small fry. In game world, buy up just puts you into a whole new bunch of people just as tough as you.

If shelling out $$ to buy gold is the way you intend to play, and thus buy Legendaries when they're available, and you've got the money to burn, spin away. If you figure out the cost of buying (with gold) the items you've won, you'll see that only the 10k credits are a loss for you. The problem becomes, what are you going to do with all the 1 day crit and crit shields, and the mutosterone? After a while they just amass into a useless pile you'll never use. At that point your returns diminish greatly.

Even when shelling out money for legendaries (like I do), using gold is still a waste. I buy gold whenever there is a sale; whether I need it or not. Right now I have 5.5k saved up, from both shelling out a bit of money (usually 10-20 dollars) on the off occasion of a sale, and while saving all the ones I get from achievements or leveling. The payout for buying mutants is guaranteed, while slots is not.

If you are dead set in spinning slots, wait until the jackpot tokens go on sale like I do. The sale is 20 tokens for $3; I tend to buy some myself just for fun, and are more economical. You can also take advantage of the bonus 20 tokens when you buy the casino pack of reactor tokens.

Keeping track of all my pulls using the promos, I actually feel I broke even or even profited from the spins. But if I had did the same number of spins with the equivalent gold I would have for sure suffered a huge loss.

Sure I (and others) have money to spend, doesn't mean they have to spend it poorly :P

Just my 2 cents.
