Does anyone have any information on the game mechanics behind these things? What triggers the bonus game in Mauville's Slot Machines? I've completely filled up that bar of lighting marks before but haven't had the bonus game at all. What is the strategy involved in getting a high win streak with Clefairy in Veilstone's slot machines? This article briefly mentions it, but I don't understand where the strategy is. It just seems to stop randomly. What's that glowing moon about on the Clefairy game too? A lot of NPCs talk about different machines having different odds, what are the facts behind this? It seems strange that these things have been in the games since Generation I and yet so far the internet seems to have little to no information on their internal workings. --Raylax 22:30, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
I know, I know, most people wouldn't consider using any kind of strategy for slot machines, but I've noticed that in Yellow, I can win about 90% of the time by betting 3 coins and pressing along with the beat of the background music. If anyone else can confirm this, it might be worth adding to the page. EDIT: Hmm... this doesn't always work. I was able to go from 200 to 1100 without looking, only pressing A to the beat, but now I'm only winning about 10% of the time. Not sure what changed...
