    Your millage may vary, but I have found these tips and tricks I have picked up over the years pretty helpful in getting the most bang for my slot buck.

    The majority of all this has been covered on these boards in other threads. But some of its new and most of its now in detail. If anyone sees any obviously holes in my blog post please let me know! I don't want to mislead anyone that stumbles in there.

    There is no better place to vet a gambling post than among fellow gamblers.

    The basics of getting more play on a machine, which ones to play and how to use your earned comps to offset your obvious loses.

    Without further ado

    That's probably the only slot article I've read for quite a while which I can't refute. LOL, I was expecting something like hints of finding one overdue to hit and such. :)

    True story, I was at the old Sahara years ago playing video poker. I cant even remember how I ended up there. The casino was fairly empty, I'm sure the fact that it smelled like mold and a dirty diaper didn't help. Anyway, some Dude walks up to me and says he found a machine ready to jackpot but he already lost all his money chasing it.

    Pretty sure this was before the days of those "Must hit progressives" so I followed him. Hell I didnt want to miss out on a sure thing! The deal we cut while walking over to the "guaranteed winning machine" was that I would give him 10% of the jackpot. All I saw was some stupid 10 times pay quarter machine and "Dude" was all excited as he showed it to me. I sat there staring at the reels and he kept saying "wait for it" "Wait For It!" and sure enough the reels twitched a little bit.

    He yells "SEE I TOLD YOU!" And I'm like WTF and got up and he is walking behind me saying why are you leaving, when they move like that it means the big one is coming!

    Maybe "Dude" knew something. To this day I'll never know!

    Not sure this ratio seems like he is getting some pretty good hits on some machines.
    "I might have lost $1,500.00 on these greedy machines over 3 nights. But I also played through $15,000.00 of coin"

    $500 lost per night assuming perfect 90% payback on dollar slots. For every $100 of coin-in, I expect to lose $10.00 on average. 50- $100 coin in sessions = $5K of coin. $10 lost per session = $500 lost. $500 lost x 3 night = $1500. $5K coin X 3 = $15K coin-in.

    Obviously my math is in a bubble, You can hit big or lose big either way, but it has to be to show averages. And honestly it holds pretty true.

    I like this and agree with a lot of this. However I do have a soft spot for the wizard of oz and Willy Wonka Pure Imagination machines. I try to see those as pure entertainment though and nothing more.

    Absolutely! Some people play what they like and view their gambling experience as entertainment. Nothing wrong with that. I gamble with my brother a lot. And thats exactly how he plays. He uses a casino like an arcade. He just wants to play what he views as fun. And thats usually the hottest new penny games. I try to tell him winning, or at least not losing, money is fun as well.

    But he doesnt listen.
