Here is a pie chart and list with all items/probabilities:

2 Same Symbols With Bell (Cash) 5216 (23.33%)
No Match 4708 (21.05%)
2 Same Symbols Without Bell (White Weapon) 4513 (20.18%)
3 Cherries (Green Weapon) 3179 (14.22%)
3 Psychos (Live Grenade) 2387 (10.67%)
3 7s (Custom Skin) 981 (4.39%)
3 Single Eridium (4x Eridium) 602 (2.69%)
3 Moxxi Legs (Blue Item) 327 (1.46%)
2 Bells (Cash) 190 (0.85%)
3 Double Eridium (8x Eridium) 165 (0.74%)
3 Marcus (Purple Weapon) 41 (0.18%)
3 Triple Eridium (12x Eridium) 39 (0.17%)
3 Bells (Lots of cash) 9 (0.04%)
3 Borderlands Vault Symbol (JACKPOT) (Orange Weapon) 5 (0.02%)

Found this while doing a quick search for the statistical numbers. There is also a chart that shows the different percentages for each of them.

The link Robert A Palmer posted has been consistent with my results as well, though I thinks chance for vaults is slightly lower (I got the jackpot after like 3,500 spins) though it could've been bad luck –  user31761 Oct 5 '12 at 21:02
    
Of course you can't judge probabilities against a single occurrence :-) (Not to doubt your general observations, of course!) –  Orc JMR Oct 5 '12 at 22:19

0.04% for legendary weapons. Well $#!% –  Ben Brocka Oct 5 '12 at 22:41

I don't suppose the machine on One Armed Bandits has different odds or does anyone know? –  Ben Brocka Oct 5 '12 at 23:04
