Slot Machine Tips For Casinos

Slot machines are often overlooked, but they are a good option for people who want to earn comp points, relax, and have a chance of a good win.

Don’t fall for the bloke in the pub who says ‘I can show you how to cheat the machines’ – those cheats almost never work, and in the rare cases they do – usually very old machines, you risk getting noticed, or banned, or, even if you do get away with winning a few small payouts, the machine will be replaced before you manage to ‘earn’ back whatever you paid the guy who taught you the system.

The best way to win at slot machines is to understand how they work. This applies to both casino hotels and the slots at your online casino. Find a machine with a high payout rate, and learn how it works.

Don’t be tempted towards progressive machines – they usually have a lower payout rate, which in the long term is going to leave you worse off unless you strike really lucky and get the jackpot.

Play the maximum number of coins each time – in most cases, you need to do this in order to get full payout. The jackpot on non-progressive machines isn’t usually as big as on a progressive machine, but it is big enough that you could end up feeling very disappointed if you lost out because you weren’t playing enough coins.

Also, make sure you understand the paylines – especially when playing at an online casino. A lot of Las Vegas casinos have simple machines with a low number of paylines, but online casinos can be very different, with fancy machines based on games like poker, or even superhero videogames. Be sure you understand the paylines, and the rules, fully, before you sit down to play.

Try not to waste your time and money on tight machines. If a machine has a low payout rate, don’t use it. If you find you’re not winning, move on to another machine. Chasing loses doesn’t pay off, as the house tends to win over the longer term.
