R Dataset / Package DAAG / vlt


On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the vlt data set which pertains to Video Lottery Terminal Data. The vlt data set is found in the DAAG R package. You can load the vlt data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("vlt"). This will load the data into a variable called vlt. If R says the vlt data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("DAAG") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the vlt R data set. The size of this file is about 3,502 bytes.

Video Lottery Terminal Data


Data on objects appearing in three windows on a video lottery terminal, together with the prize payout (usually 0). Observations were taken on two successive days in late 1994 at a hotel lounge north of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Each observation cost 25 cents (Canadian). The game played was ‘Double Diamond’.




This data frame contains the following columns:


object appearing in the first window.


object appearing in the second window.


object appearing in the third window.


cash prize awarded (in Canadian dollars).


1, if observation was taken on day 1; 2, if observation was taken on day 2.


At each play, each of three windows shows one of 7 possible objects. Apparently, the three windows are independent of each other, and the objects should appear with equal probability across the three windows. The objects are coded as follows: blank (0), single bar (1), double bar (2), triple bar (3), double diamond (5), cherries (6), and the numeral "7" (7).

Prizes (in quarters) are awarded according to the following scheme: 800 (5-5-5), 80 (7-7-7), 40 (3-3-3), 25 (2-2-2), 10 (1-1-1), 10 (6-6-6), 5 (2 "6"'s), 2 (1 "6") and 5 (any combination of "1", "2" and "3"). In addition, a "5" doubles any winning combination, e.g. (5-3-3) pays 80 and (5-3-5) pays 160.
