Line up 3 Jackpot symbols on the MEGABUCKS machines in ‘Vegas & you win at least $5 million. 3 reels with 28 “stops” (symbols) on each. What are the odds? Would it be figured as, 28 X 28 X 28 = 21,952 to 1? (I maybe didn’t do it right.)

The probability is often irrelevant, I know someone who used to work for a slots company and he said that the machines were programmed to produce results that would result in the machine making a percentage profit set by the casino. In short, slot machines aren’t always as fair and random as they look.
