Originally, some of the first slot

The "fruits" on the reels represented the gum flavors.
instance, a straight slot machine will have a payout schedule for the
amount of coins one bets. The jackpot for a one coin bet may payout 800
coins, while a two coin bet pays 1,600 coins and a three coin bet pays a
jackpot of 2,400 coins. Depending on what the value of the coin size is,
the monetary payout will vary. For this particular payout scale,
if the coin size was fifty cents, a three coin bet would payout $1,200
(.50 x 2,400), while a coin size of $1 would payout $2,400 (1 x 2,400)
for a three coin bet. On a straight slot machine, these payouts
will always be the same.

Depending on the payout schedule of a slot machine, winning payouts
will vary from machine to machine. Knowing the difference between
the jackpot payout of a progressive slot and a straight slot, let's
examine what a fixed payout schedule looks like.
The above picture is a screen shot of the payout table from the "Red,
White and Blue" 3-reel straight slot machine.
As the table shows, the max payout is for 10,000 coins on a 3 coin
bet. For a two coin bet, the max payout is 4,000 coins, and a
single coin wager can win as much as 2,000 coins on a single spin.
It is clear to see the more coins one bets, the better the odds and
Those players who do not pay any attention to payout schedules are
often the same players who walk away from the slot machines without a
coin in their pocket. Similarly, those players who only pay attention to
the max payout (in this case, 10,000 coins) are not doing themselves any
favors as well.
On the other hand, the smartest way to examine a payout schedule is
to look at the lower winning symbol combinations. Choose a machine
that offers the most winnings for the lower and medium symbol combos,
because these are the ones you will be hitting most often, which
consequently, will keep you playing longer. Do not play a slot
machine simply because it has a high maximum payout.
Reasons for doing so, are the simple fact that your chances of
winning the large jackpot are a lot lower than winning smaller payouts.
By walking around the casino, you should look at all slot machine payout
schedules before you begin to play.
For example, let's say you want to decide between two slot machines.
One machine offers a payout of 10 coins (on a 3 coin wager) for the
lowest winning symbol combination, while the other machine offers a
payout of 15 coins for a 3 coin wager with the same odds of winning as
the first machine. The choice should be obvious.
