Shall we open a thread dedicated exclusively for posting the big winnings and losses we all had and still have, and will always have; with this infernal machine?

Big winners, please post here with a screenshot hosted in tinypic or elsewhere (no, tinypic is not paying me anything. )

Also please post useable statistics regarding what you think is the investment:return ratio and the probability of each of the objects appearing in each column (that is for advanced statisticians).

Let's have a go and see whether there is any point in playing it, or we can gather enough information and then approach the developers with improvement ideas. Thank you all.

20-22 K loss on an investment of 125K perfectly fits into my calculation of slot machine odds. Also I infer that the chance of getting 3 Oscars is completely random.

I never buy a load of tickets but every day i buy 10 to add to the free ticket and i usally make clintz (though its only about 20 clintz but this is more then nothing).

Makes perfect sense. Don't tell me there is an inverse algorithm that's programmed to work against the bulk-buyers!

I only had 1 ticket left so i randomly picked one to play... one of the other two had the 10k prize. i still only lost a couple thousand total though

Seriously though, has anyone (with concrete proof) actually hot three oscars?

My profit from this machine is infinitely high. I have never bought tickets, but I win quite a bit with tickets from missions. Nothing major (the most I ever got on 1 spin was 120), but each session adds around 500 Clintz to my total, not a lot for most people but I can't sell on the market so....

As for how I figure infinitely high profit: I have spent 0, therefore the formula for calculating how many times the value of Clintz spent has been won is X/0, where X is a positive integer representing my winnings. Given that X is positive, even if it were the smallest decimal number imaginable it would be infinitely larger than 0, as 0*anything is 0, meaning anything positive is an infinite number of times larger, and any negative number is an infinite number of times smaller.

As for my actual total profit, it's probably somewhere in the mid 3000's, though compared to 0 spent it's still technically infinitely high referring to how many times more.
