    I was never a fan of the slots. Too luck-based, too little payoff on the rare instances that you actually succeeded, coins were kinda pricy. Voltorb Flip, on the other hand, was a fairly easy, much more skill-based game. I've amassed more coins in Voltorb Flip than I have in every normal game corner combined. It's really not even close. When the Slots stop being a total ripoff, then maybe I'll reconsider.

    The slot machines because they were somewhat more fun and the voltorb flip was a flop.

    Slot Machine. The Voltorb Flip was garbage. Honestly, you should always be able to buy coins with your own money anyways.

    Voltorb flip for sure! I would have sessions where I would turn on the game, play voltorb flip for a while, and turn off the game. I was an addict.

    Voltorb flip all the way.

    At least it's practical to win a lot of coins in VF when compared to the slots. I learned VF quite fast, and can easily amass a lot of coins. It's always fun to sweep Whitney with a lv. 19 Swords Dancing Heracross, which wouldn't be possible by buying alone.

    EDIT: Although I do agree with Blue1225 that buying coins should still be possible in HG/SS

    The only shame is that they removed the option to buy coins.
    I highly agree with this. I never understood why Gamefreak removed this feature (I mean there was a reason for the slots).

    Anyways, my answer would probably be the slots. Don't get me wrong, I like Voltorb Flip; however, it does tend to get frustrating at times and there are times when I just don't have the patience for this mini-game. The slots in one way or another always allowed me to get a decent amount of coins by the end of it in the older games.

    Slots required luck whereas Voltorb Flip required me to think. I like figuring out strategies better than relying on luck, so I have to go with Voltorb Flip.

    I don't have the version with the Voltorb Flip, so I cannot compare it with the slots. But I like that in the slot version you can buy the coins you need, because it takes so much time to play and win coins.

    I got almost 1000 coins within a few hours at voltorb flip while I lost the same amount at the slots in another game. I love voltorb flip. It actually forces you to think. I hate having to rely on luck.

    I wish they also allowed you to buy tms in hg/ss just incase you are in a hurry.

    Voltorb flip is definitely more addictive, and while not being able to buy coins sucks, it's hilariously easy to abuse this game with a calculator as a person above me had said.

    It was much easier for me to get coins with Voltorb Flip. I always hated the Slot Machines because I suck horribly at them. Although, I admit to hating Voltorb Flip at first.

    I never got into Voltorb Flip, but I'm assuming it was like Minesweeper (which I never really got into either).
    I'd go with slot machines. Voltorb Flip in a casino didn't make sense. If you go into a casino, you always see slot machines, and sometimes other games but the other games are always either luck-oriented or they favour the house. Voltorb Flip is nothing like that... in a real casino the casino would go out of business because it's too easy to win.
    Despite what I just said, I did like the game that was in Generation II (which I don't remember, but it might not have been luck-based). I forget everything about it, but I do remember liking it. But at least it made more sense being there since it didn't replace the slot machines... just complement them. The point is, a casino has got to have slots. It can have other things too, but it needs the slots.
