I'm making a slot machine.

I don't know where to put this so I'll stick it in the attic.

I just finished a video poker game. I made it unweighted. It simply shuffles 10 cards to the top of the deck randomly, deals you the first 5 and then you get the next 5 in order depending on how many cards you drop. It's still in the testing phase and I sent the address to a few friends to play it in their spare time.

Anyway... Now I want to start a slot machine. Should be 100x easier. That's why I did the VP first. The only thing I'm not sure about is the reel strips. Or the odds. I looked around online for a bit trying to find some samples that I could work from but haven't really found anything helpful so if anyone wants to pass on a link or give me some ideas I'd appreciate it.

Check out Zoozie's posts and look for a thread from about a year ago (or more) on slot reels and percentages. He came up with an emulator and some percentages while other members worked out certain reel strips like Thunderstruck etc. That should give you the basis for what you need.
