Playing Slot Machines

Many people who visit casinos will spend hours playing slot machines. Slots are extremely entertaining, fun and addictive, but what happens when you go home without a win? Well, one thing is for sure you may not be so willing to go back to the casino any time soon. To help improve your chances of winning, you will need to create a new playing strategy. It also never hurts to shadow a few of the experts. A few tips are listed below to help you improve your skills and win more often.

Shadow an Expert

Whether you are a newbie or just someone with only a few wins under their belt, it never hurts to shadow an expert. Believe it or not, there are hundreds of people who are considered slot experts. These people know exactly how to play slots and come out on top. While they may not win every time they play, they rarely go bust. You can find these ‘experts’ at just about any casino. And, many of them are more than willing to allow someone to shadow them.

If you regularly visit the same casino in your hometown, you will notice that there are more than a few repeat visitors. It is more than likely that some of these visitors could be addicted (losers/recurring) players, but looking well you could find some experienced, long-time slot players. Keep an eye out for these experts, because you are bound to run into them at one time or another. Look mostly at when they raise and lower the bet, and when they stop the session.

Join Clubs Offered By Casinos

Many casinos have clubs that visitors can join for free. Many of these programs offer freebies, such as free food, motel stays and plays. Some online casinos have similar programs, so if you enjoy playing free slots online, be sure to check these out (free spins, welcome bonuses and no deposit, cash back and VIP programs).

Of course, your options will be limited if you only visit brick-and-mortar casinos. Very few cities have more than one casino, unless you live in a metropolis such as Las Vegas. Online casinos are unlimited, making it easier to find the ones that offer the best freebies.

Know the Slot Machine

Most casinos (both physical and online) have a variety of slot machines working with a random number generator (RNG system) that delivers winning combinations. While these machines operate in a similar manner, there are some that are more popular than others. Some slot machines will accept cash and member cards as a form of payment. There are even slot machines that accept previous payout tickets.

Random Number Generator (explanation)

If you are on a strict budget, you should stick with the slot machines that accept $1, $5, $10 and $20. If your cash flow is good, then you will not need to worry, because most machines accept $5 up to $100 dollar bills and member cards. Do not try to put your money in a machine with a Bill acceptor that is flashing blue or lit, because it probably needs to be serviced.

Slot machines that pay out with coins are pretty much rare. Today, most slot machines utilize what is known as the “TITO” system, which pays out in the form of a ticket that can be converted into real money.

Which Slots Are The Best?

It is truly difficult to determine which slot machines are the best unless you play them. You really need to join the machines and immerge yourself into them to understand. What we suggest is to visit our free slot directory and play more games as possible (3 to 5 reels, video poker, scratch cards) until you'll become a more practical player.
