The best way to win in a casino is by preparing your gambling session before you enter. If you follow a few simple rules and avoid a few bad choices you will reduce your losses and bump up your winnings. Let’s take a look at more winning strategies for the inspiring slot player.
Only play machines that will pay back 95 to 99 percent of the coins played. Usually these types of slot machines are of the higher denomination. Therefore you will want to look for the dollar slots, which are the most popular among those that payout at the high percentage.
Choose a loss number! Do not let your pride get in the way of knowing when to quit. For example, you can set a loss number at eight or ten spins. If your machine does not hit a winning combination after your set loss number you can simply move on to another machine. You may have to change casinos if that’s what it takes to win.
Play non-progressive machines. Progressive slot machines are normally set by the RNG(random number generator) which will result in a higher number of reels and symbols. Players are better off playing the flat top machines.
Ask your friendly casino employee if they can help you find a loose slot machine. Hey, there’s an old saying “the squeaky wheel gets the oil.” You never know, a casino employee could help you become a millionaire! Make sure you offer them a cut of the action if you win.
Casinos are very strategic as well when it comes to the actual physical placement of their slot machines. If you are looking for loose slots (who doesn’t?) then focus on the following four areas in the casino:
First, the change booths or cashiers area are a hot spot for loose slots because casinos want people to see winners and immediately see where they can get change to play.
Secondly, look for displayed or featured machines with huge prizes on top as these tend to be loose to attract players. If you notice, most of these slot areas are packed with people just waiting to get a seat. Casinos know that eventually players will get impatient and stray to other tighter slot machines.
The third area to find loose slots in a casino is near the coffee shops, cafés, and snack bars. The idea is to motivate people to eat quickly and get back to playing those winning slot machines!
Finally, keep an eye out for loose slots near the casino “crosswalks” which are the cross sections between different areas of slot machines. The casino management will purposely place a couple loose machines at the front or near the beginning of a slot section to lure players. Yeah, it works well as we tend to follow the sound of money!
Avoid playing the slot machines that are located in secluded areas as these are usually tight. If you don’t like crowds and find yourself playing in a quiet secluded corner you can bet on losing your money. My suggestion would be to get up early or stay up later to avoid the large crowds.
Casinos will also place tight machines around table games, as table players tend to not play the slots, so management does not want them distracted by busy machines.
Showrooms or club entrances will usually have tight slot machines placed near the entrances as casinos know that people waiting in line have pretty much taken off their gambling shoes for the day.
Finally, don’t plan on winning on a slot machine placed near the sportsbook in a casino. The casinos want their sports bettors to have as little distraction as possible.
Playing slot machines is a great time but winning while playing is even more exciting! By following a few simple rules you will increase your chances of winning. Luck to ya.
