is a list of important Slot Machines
1) Q: Can I Win Playing Slot Machines?
A: Yes but as in everythingelse your
attitude determines your altitude. Maintain
a positive attitude, believe you will win every
time you sit in front a slot machine and your
chances will be immediately improved. Do we
have scientific proof of this? NO, but years
of observing slots players have revealed this
to be fact. The winners when interviewed all
stated they always felt they would win BUT they
also knew their limits and were wise enough
to stop playing when they reached their budgeted
limit for the given session.
2) Q: What is meant by Payout % and
A: If a slot machine has a payout % of 96% this
means for every $100 wagered the machine will
payout $96 on average and the casino will hold
or keep 4% or $4.
3) Q: How do I know which slot machines
have high payout percentage?
A: With the online casinos, the reputable
ones list the payout % for all their machines
updated mponthly. For land based usually there
are signs at the good casinos. If there are
none, you can ask the casino floor manager and
hope for an honest answer or talk to the local
TIP! - machines located near the entrance to
the casino and near the bar area tend to have
high payouts. It's actually a fantastic marketing
strategy employed by most casinos to lure customers
in to play or keep them wanting to play.
4) Q: Is there such thing as a HOT
or COLD slot machine?
A: There seems to be the perception
this is true especially when one sees a slot
machine suddenly paying a series of wins in
a short period of time and then not paying for
a long time. Unfortunately there is no way to
predict when these winning streaks will occur,
smart players do however recognise they occur
and when they see a machine payout and the player
leave the machine they quickly go to it. Online
they will continue to play the same slot machine for a while more even after they have won.
5) Q: What is the RNG
A: The brains of the slot machine -
the letters mean Random Number Generator. It
is configurable by the casino management and
so management can determine what payout % they
wish to have for each machine. The RNG determines
which combination of characters to throw up
for each spin. It is totally random and each
combination have the same exact probability
of coming on each given spin.
6) Q: Are Slot Machines Payback % The
Lowest Amongst Casino Games?
A: Absolutely NOT! you will find worse odds
on some bets at the Roulette Table, Craps Table,
Baccarat Table, Keno and several others.
7) Q: Slot machines which have not paid
for a While - are they due a hit?
A: The simple answer is NO, because
the RNG is totally random and any combination
can come on any spin. Try telling this to a
slots player and they will swear otherwise.
8) Q: Is it better to play 1 coin or
the maximum coins?
A: If you are playing a progressive
slot machine always play maximum coins as they
do not usually pay the Jackpot on lessser bets.
Some slot machines also reward players for playing
maximum coins, in these cases it is worth it.
Where there is no discernible benefit to playing
maximum coins then by all means play less unless
you can really afford it.
9) Q: What should be my starting bankroll?
A: Depends on the size of machine you
are playing, how long you want to play for,
your budget and how much you want to win.
For instance if you want to play for 2 hours
and win frequently rather than a huge Jackpot
and your budget is $40, then your best bet is
the nickel machines. This is calculated as such:
6 spins every minute translates into 360 spins
in an hour. This means for 2 coin playing you
need 720 coins which will allow you $18 play
per hour. In this scenario we are not replaying
10) Q: Is it wise to play slot tournaments?
A: Of course! you put up only a small
entrance fee and could win a large Jackpot.
There are no coins in use and the participant
who ends up with the most credits will win.
Most tournaments also throw in lots of freebies
like free room and board etc. Take it I say!
11) Q: is the payout % the same for
all same name slot machines?
A: No, each one would most certainly have been
programmed for a different payout.
12) Q: What should I look for when
reading the pay table?
A: The number of winning combinations.
The more there is the longer you will last at
a table. Less winning combinations usually means
1 larger one. This is good for those looking
for a huge payday.
13) Q: Can the payout % be changed easily
on busy days to take advantage of the crowd?
A: Fortunately it's not that simple to change
like punching in a new number. It does involve
taking out the RNG chip and performing changes
14) Q: Are there any surefire slot strategies?
A: If there were I would be in Hawaii instead
of managing this website :) There are ways to
bring the odds more in your favor than currently
operates and you wil find a few in the section
