'Near Misses' on Online Slot Machines (IMAGE) Society for Neuroscience Caption The slot machine task presents two wheels, each with six icons, and a horizontal line across the center of the screen. If the right wheel stopped on the selected icon (i.e., matching icons were aligned), the subject was awarded £0.50 (approximately 75 cents). All other outcomes won nothing. When the wheels stopped within one icon of a match, the outcome was considered a "near miss." Credit Courtesy, with permission: Chase and Clark. <i>The Journal of Neuroscience</i> 2010.
