Whether it’s the whirring noises or the flashing lights or just the sound of money piling up accompanied by the ding of winning bells, many people are attracted to the slot machines. Playing the slot machines can be a lot of fun, especially if you end up winning. There are a few tricks you can implement into your slot playing so you increase your chances of winning a few rounds or even the big jackpot.
Tip 1: Know your Machine
Some machines have a limit in regards to how many coins you can play. That means that sometimes you won’t be the winner of a major jackpot because you can only put in a certain amount of coins and the jackpot usually happens based on the number of spins. It’s called gambling for a reason, you don’t always get the chance to win.
Tip 2: Machine Selection
Play machines with 3 reels, rather than 4. You decrease your odds by millions when you play a 4 reel machine.
Tip 3: Maximum Coins
If you’re going to play on a slot machine you should use the maximum coins you can so your chances increase at winning a higher payout or even the jackpot.
Tip 4: Look For Loose Machines
Before you start playing slot machines you should know the percentage for paybacks. Some places offer a 90 percent or better payback. You only want to play the machines with at least a 96% payout. Casinos never place 2 loose machines next to each other. Try to stick to machines in high traffic areas. These are usually the loosest.
Tip 5: Keep a Budget
If you don’t have the means to gamble away your wallet you need to set a budget for yourself. It’s so easy to just put “one” more coin in the slot machine. Soon you’ll find yourself wondering what happened to your dinner money. The jackpot is rare so don’t play until you win it play until your budget is gone. The best way to do that is to have your bills already converted to coins and put them in a bucket already so you aren’t going back and converting more bills into coins. You can choose to either set aside all your winnings or to use your winnings to keep playing longer until you don’t have any more coins.
Tip 6: Inexpensive Machines
Some games are inexpensive so you can still get the thrill of winning a jackpot without paying out nearly as much.
Tip 7: Two or More Coins
Sometimes the best way to win is to actually put out a little more which you can do when you have the option of putting two or possibly three coins in your machine at once.
Tip 8: Smaller Budget
In order to get the most out of your money (small budget or not) is to find machines that are going to have a higher payout. Progressive slots found online usually have a lower payout than slot machines within a casino.
Tip 9: Jackpot
Once you hit the jackpot (whether it’s your first round or your twentieth) you should consider ending because you’re not likely to hit the jackpot again.
Tip 10: Progressives
Do not play progressive machines. Play the non-progressive, or flat rate, machines.
The slot machine is based off of chance and the statistics of a few wheels stopping on matching pictures or numbers. People do win with slot machines because there are a few combinations that are considered lucky enough to be a win. Playing on slot machines is about having fun and perhaps offers a slight distraction from every day stresses. Have fun and good luck.
