That question has nothing to do with my strategy of taking ticket in and out once or twice. I do this to make sure the machine is dead or if it still alive I will still play. I do not like other people getting on the machine I was just on and winning, which it could have been me. I like machines that keep me playing. If it pays good, then yay. If it keeps me playing, then good. If it takes takes takes no matter what I try, I change to another machine and usually people who get on after me are not winning on it either. If I do not do this and I get off and go to another machine, majority of the time people on after me are winning. This is all based off of experience.
