Slot Machines Secrets. How to Win at Slots:
The secret to winning on slot machines is timing. We already know that every slot machine has a payback
percentage. The best paybacks are with the higher denomination slots. $1 and $5 dollars slot gives you higher
payback percentages when compared to quarters or nickels. Also higher denominations have higher jackpots.
If you truly want to get the best slot machined payback percentage from playing the slots in the casino, then
you should play high limit slot machines. Casinos make most of their money from Slot Machines. Table games such as
blackjack give better odds for the player. However, table games take a lot of time and patience. Casino Slot
machines offer a lot more of excitement and if you hit, a good quick payoff. I highly recommend playing high limits
if you like playing slot machines. The following is the average payback percentage of most casinos: 25¢ = 90.86%,
50¢ = 91.03%, $1.00 = 92.06%, $5.00 = 94.51%, $10.00 = 95.10%, $25.00 = 95.41%, and $100.00 = 94.08%.
Now we all agree that all
slot machines must pay something back. But how do we catch them when they are ready to pay? Answer; watch the
slot machines and watch the players. If you noticed that someone has just hit a small jackpot or a good payout
on a machine, play it. Slots sometimes have a certain amount to pay out over a period of time. The machine
might still have more to pay out after it just gave a nice payout. If a slot machine has to pay $4,000, it
might payout with two separate $2,000 jackpots. Now you don't have to stay with that machine until it pays, it
could be that it has paid out. But it's worth giving it a few spins. Of course we can't guarantee you a win at
the slots, but you might find this bit of advice helpful. Here are a few winning Slot Machine Tips and rules you should follow:
First, don't consume alcohol when gambling, if you plan to
win or leave with more money than you came with. The Casinos offer alcohol beverages not just because they
want to be nice to you. I like having a nice beer with friends or with a good meal. However, alcohol and
gambling is a bad combination.
Check out the Pay Tables.
Many times patrons walk up
to the first machine they see, drop a coin in the slot and the reel hits three 7's right on the line,
However, they are disappointed to find out that they must play three coins for that combination to win.
Most progressive slots require that you play the maximum amount. If you can afford it, you should always
play the maximum. Read the pay tables. Why would you invest $100 in a slot machine that pays only $250
Try playing the machines that are 1 to 3 seats from the
It doesn't matter which side. The casino like for patrons to see their jackpots, they
entice others to play. I know it has been said that all the machines in a casino are the same. Well if
this is so then why do some casino proudly advertise that they have slots that payback 99%. This system
seems to work well for me.
Know when to walk away. This may be the hardest step of
them all. When you gamble your adrenalin begins to flow and sometimes we get caught up in the moment. Make a
conscience decision before you start to play and while you are playing to decide how much is enough, before
you move on to the next game or machine. You must have an exit strategy.
Take breaks. If you find that you are winning, take a
moment to go to the restroom, wash your face, have a snack, or walk around for a minute. If you like to come
back to the same machine maybe you can have someone to hold it for you for a couple of minutes.
Don't Loose your head. You may not win at the first few
machines. If you did not win, don't try to make the machine hit. Most casinos have thousands of slots, MOVE
Divide your play into thirds. If you have, let's say $300
, and you like playing slots, then try playing $100 on dollar slots, $100 on 50 cents slots and $100 on
quarters slots. Choose a progressive machine somewhere in this play. People do win on progressive machines, so
why not try a few spins.
Progressive Jackpots slot machines or video slots are
becoming more and more popular in most casinos. Recently (in December 2008) another big progressive jackpot win at
Mohegan's Sun casino in Connecticut. The jackpot was more than 1.2 million dollars on a Wheel Of Fortune $5 Slot
This is the third progressive jackpot on wheel of fortune I observed at Mohegan's Sun. There may have been more
progressive jackpots. Progressive slots machines hit on 25 cent, $1 and $5 wheel of fortune slots. Progressive slot
machines do hit. There is no special secret to winning on these machines other than to play them and always play
the max. Most progressive slots are connected to several casinos and there's no way to tell which casino will have
the next big win. Remember, big jackpots do happen, but you must play the max.
