The odds don't change, the pay tables change. You have the same chance to get a full house on a 10/6 game as you do on a 7/5 game. You get the same winning hands on either machine.
Not if you're playing correctly.
Assuming you're talking about DDB, on a hand like Kh Th 7h 4c 2d, the correct play in the 10/6 game is KT. The correct play in the 7/5 game is K by itself. Different play affect the odds of getting a full house.
Since we were originally talking about Hundred Play, the Expected Value (i.e. 99.54% or 97.23% or whatever) are the same on Hundred Play as on a single line Game King version. The variance is significantly different.
Why does it matter? Variance affects the bankroll you need to play a particular game. The multi-line games (for the same total bet) lowers the variance for both the player and the house.
Compare dollar single line with penny Hundred Play. Both take $5 to play. But whatever s take you started with will last MUCH longer on the Hundred Play version. This presumes the same pay schedule (which is only true at a few places).
