If you are talking about DQ V, then yes. the slots are more like IV, VIII and several others in the series. There are also other mini-games like the sugoroku board...

In Fortuna, the 1-token slot machine second from the left seems to have a good payout ratio. And there's even a guy in one of the cells behind a magic key door that says it's the best slot machine too. It's only a 1-token machine, but maybe it's easier to hit five 7's on that machine. *shrugs* I don't know about the slots on the casino boat.

I never even talked to that guy (don't even have the magic key yet), and I figured that out on my own. Second slot machine from the left for 10 token seems to be really good as well.

 

I'd imagine the casino ship is similar maybe. There's no differences in prizes. Only the addition of Poker and a different TnT board.

I know this is an old thread (I post to those a lot).  It's posted here so people who do searches in the future may find it useful.

 

Any slot machine that shows two lines of 7's when it's first accessed pays better than the others do, because there are twice as many 7's on it than on the other machines. I can't tell if it replaces symbols or just adds a 7 to each reel.  Either way, the chances of lining up 7's (the big pay) increases.    

 

In Fortuna, the the second green (1-token) machine from the left/west and the far left/west blue (10-token) machine are double-7's.  None of the machines in Ventuno are double-7.

The general strategy is to play as many tokens per line as will last you 100 losing spins.  For example, if you start with 100 tokens, you would be playing one-line and one token on a green machine.  If you got up to 900 tokens, you'd be playing 3 tokens on all three lines.  At 1,000, you might play the 10-token machine for 10 on one line; at 9,000, you'd be playing 9 lines at 30 tokens apiece.  It's pointless, in my opinion, to play a 100 token machine, since there's no double-7 advantage in either casino.

EDIT: Note that even using a 100 spin threshold won't guarantee that you can't lose.  If you have the time and don't mind extra grinding, a 200-300 spin threshold would be safer.  
 

EDIT: I've learned that the 7's replace the symbols below them on a single-line-7 slot: namely two bells, a bar, a watermelon, and a plum.  I've also learned that a 100 bet bankroll will go empty about 20% of the time.  A 200 bet bankroll only goes empty about 5% of the time.  A 300 bet bankroll didn't empty out in 20 tries and will probably empty about 1-1.5% of the time.  

 

Therefore, starting with 300 coins (6,000 gold) on a one-coin, machine is probably the best way to go, playing it for one line. 27,000 coins are needed to play the 10-coin machine for three coins and three lines.  (EDIT: I was wrong about the machine not playing out on more than one line if more than one has a winning combination).
 

Of course, those who don't mind cheating can just save their game and restart if the bankroll is lost or if a big win is made.  Those who don't mind cheating and are lazy could just buy the action reply cartridge and use a max token cheat.
