I'm saving up for a Porygon but it cost so much and I keep loosing the slots.

So is there a tactic to win, like the slots in Diamond/Pearl, or is it just luck?

Also, I know I could just buy the coins but I'm broke and I really want to get it my playing the slots.

Thanks :)

It's pretty much luck for me. :P
Are you sure? I think I've heard a way to win before, or maybe it was a different game...
the slots in the games are luck and it is not like  diamond and pearl

Well, like actual gambling, it all comes down to luck. Of course, the slots in Pokemon are in fact easier than their real world counterparts, to state the obvious. There's really no technique or know-how for spamming the slot machine to cough out all of its coins, it's just timing and luck.

If you want to do the math: there are 6 chances of getting good coinage consisting of three "7"s (300 coins), "R"s (100 coins) , Pikachu (15 coins), Psyduck (15 coins), Magnimite (10 coins), and Shelder (10 coins). This is further laid out over 3 vertical, 3 horizontal , and 2 diagonal rows, or 8 chances all together to get those chances. Don't forget about the chances of getting a berry in at least a row, which will give you either 2 or 6 coins, depending on where it's at.

Those, my friend, are your chances of getting coinage from the slot machines.

Okay thanks, but when I searched this on the Internet i found this:

'All of the slot machines have different odds, which change every time. To win big, play each machine 4 times, and if it hits 2 or more, then stick with that one, because it's probably hot.'
