The Neocola Machine
Location
The Neocola Machine is located on scenic Kreludor, and if you're wondering how it works, you've come to the right place!
Obtaining Tokens
In order to use the Neocola Machine, you need to obtain one of three Neocola Tokens:
You can find these tokens most commonly in the following places:
The tokens may also be found from a few other sources around Neopia, as noted in their Item Database entries.
Using the Tokens
When you approach the machine, you'll be given three options to choose from, namely: which token you would like to use, which flavour of Neocola you would like, and how many times you would like to press the red button, for a total of 144 different combinations.
The following flavour options are available:
 Dr. Slother
 Diet Doom
 Na'cho Cola
 Smite
 AltTab
 Minion Maid
 Mountain Poo
 Dehydrated H20
And the choices for how many times you want to press the red button are:
Prizes
Once you've made your selections, you'll be given your prizes, which are one item and a number of Neopoints.
We did an extensive research of over 35,000 tokens used with all 144 possible combinations. The conclusion is that the item prize has a fixed probability distribution and is not affected by which combination you use, but the amount of Neopoints you receive definitely is! As such, for the best results, use the following combination: Red Neocola Token, Dehydrated H20, and 3 Button Presses.
Neopoints
The amount of Neopoints you receive can be anywhere from 24 NP to 32,000 NP, and possibly even more.
This is heavily dependent on which combination you use though, and most of the time you will receive under 1,000 NP, with an overall average of around 170 NP. There is a formula for this, which we go into more detail about in the Prize Research section.
Items
You will always get an item from the Neocola Machine, and no matter which combination you use, the chance of which item you receive remains the same and is as shown here:

0.10% (1 in 1,000) 
* While the Neocola Machine will tell you a Transmogrification Potion fell out, this can be
ANY item under r180 containing the word "Transmogrification". We haven't seen any confirmation that the retired Draik Transmogrification Potion can be won. If you have received one, please
let us know!
ReleasedFor Item Prizes
These prizes were specifically released through the Neocola Machine and originally could only be won here.
As the probabilities table shows, four of these prizes are less likely to be won, and each has their own unique message when it falls out of the Neocola Machine. The other thirteen items are all considered booby prizes by the Neocola Machine, and have an equal chance of being won.
Transmogrification Potions
You have a very small chance at 0.1% to win a random Transmogrification Potion under r180, or any other item under r180 containing the word "Transmogrification" in its name:
Transmogrification Potions
Robot Petpets
You also have an equally small chance to win a random Robot Petpet of up to r89:
Prize Research
One of our staffers (Pasqui) went through a little over 35,000 tokens to provide additional data. He started with using the Neocola Machine 100 times each for all 144 combinations (3 colours of tokens x 8 different flavours x 6 amounts of button presses). This already showed a clear distribution of the Neopoints amount, but wasn't enough data for the item prizes.
Based on these initial test's best and worst prize outcomes for each of the three coloured tokens, he then used the Neocola Machine an additional 1,000 times each on what appeared to be those colours' best and worst combinations. Those results ended up a lot more even, and on line with the average outcomes for all the data together, with no clear evidence of any combination having better or worse odds for the item prizes.
Lastly he used 5,000 tokens of each colour on what is the best combination for winning Neopoints: Dehydrated H20 with 3 Button Presses. This allowed us to confirm that the probabilities for the item prizes remained very equal and again on line with the overall average, with no colour token having better or worse odds.
Now we just need to try 5,000 more times using the Fake Neocola Token on a String!
Neopoints Distribution
Thanks to this extensive research we do can go into more detail about the amount of Neopoints you can win and how each selection affects that amount.
The Neocola Machine runs a formula to decide on how many Neopoints you get: While we don't know the exact formula, it is very close to something like this:
It starts with a base amount of 10 to 100, which then gets multiplied by 1, 2, 4, 8, or 16. Then there is a small chance it will add an additional small random amount of up to 1,000 NP. Then lastly there is a very small chance on a bonus of 5,000 NP, which can be added multiple times, with each additional time being rarer to happen. We have confirmation of it being added at least 6 times, equaling to an additional 30,000 NP.
Each colour of Neocola Token, each flavour you can select, and each amount of button presses influences the chance on getting a higher multiplier, on how likely you are to get the small bonus amount (and how high that number is), and the likelihood of getting the 5,000 NP bonus amount (and how many times you get it). All three selections have a best option and a worst option.
For instance, the best combination (Red Neocola Token, Dehydrated H20, and 3 Button Presses) will almost always give you the additional small amount, with about 50% chance on getting a 4x or higher multiplier, and a 4% chance on getting the 5,000 NP bonus. On the other end, the worst combination (Blue Neocola Token, Dr. Slother, and 1 Button Press) only has about 25% chance to get a multiplier above 1x, and almost never gives you either bonus amounts.
Going into full detail for all 144 combinations would take enormous space, so we have the following table to show a rough average of Neopoints you receive for each combination. The best options are towards the topleft corner, and the worst options towards the bottomright corner, for each colour token with red (R) above green (G) above blue (B):
