The Sixty Most Important Things I've Learned About Playing Slot Machines

By Terry Murphy VP Pappy

"Blessed be the slot players for theirs is the hope of a better day dawning."

-Frank Scoblete

Slot machines are fun to play, but that fun comes with a price. Most of the people who play the slots will lose, and that will probably include you if you decide to play them. And if you can't accept that fact of casino life, then you are in for some un-fun-like times when you gamble. For the most part, when you play the slots, luck and luck alone decides who wins and who loses. Yes, there's a chance that you might hit a very large jackpot, but realistically, you have about the same chance of hitting your state's lottery. Even knowing all that, I still play them on occasion myself. Why? Because, like I said before, they're fun to play, and I like to have fun when I gamble.

With the help of gambling legend VP Pappy, here are some things that we've learned over the years about playing slot machines that may be of some help to you when you challenge the odds and try to beat these money-munching-monsters of financial mayhem.

-Terry Murphy

"If it wasn't for all the money I keep losing, this gambling thing could be a lot of fun."

-VP Pappy

1. All slot machines are random, and short of cheating, which could land you in jail, there's nothing you can do to alter that fact.

2. A typical 45 to 90 coin video display slot machine seems to have a better return than a typical 3-coin spinning reels game.

3. A computer chip inside a slot machine is generating random numbers all the time, even when no one is playing. So, even if someone did hit the jackpot on the very next spin on the machine you just left, it wouldn't mean that they hit "your" jackpot.

4. Most slot machines are set at 85-95 percent payback.

5. Play the single pay line machines only. I seemed to of had better luck on them over the years than the multiple line kind.

"Psychologically, the one element of the game that keeps the slot devotee tied to the machine is the possibility, no matter how remote, of hitting the jackpot. The promise of the monster, life affirming win, the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, the philosopher's stone that can cure all their ills, pay off all their debts, and smooth the path of life forever, and ever, and ever."

-Gambling For Dummies

6. A casino can and will deny you a jackpot if they decide that a malfunction caused the win.

7. A change in the machine's pay back percentage can only be accomplished by physically changing the computer chip inside the machine and there must be a gaming board officer present to witness it. Although, in some states, all the casino has to do is file a written request with the gaming commission.

8. Today's slot players are the backbone of all casinos and they are babied, pampered, and highly sought after.

9. Push the spin button, pull the handle, or do both at the same time, it makes no difference in the outcome.

10. Most slot players play until they have lost all their money.

"Never get between a serious slot player and his or her machine. Slot players are much like the mother bear with her cub I once met mountain biking."

-Mark Pilarski

11. Nickel slots are usually set at 85-90 percent payback.

12. Five dollar slots are usually set at 95-98 percent payback.

13. Never play two or more machines at the same time. The odds are tough enough to beat playing just one, let alone more than one.

14. A player's card is used by the casino to keep track of your coin in and coin out so they can reward you for your play with comps and cashbacks.

15. The symbols on the reels of a slot machine is just there for show. Once you hit the spin button, the random number generator has already chosen the result before the reels come to a stop.

"Slot stuffers, by the large, don't want to be flustered by anything as philosophical as facts."

-Alan Krigman

16. If you have the time and the patience, sit at a spot that has a clear view of another bank of slot machines, especially a bank that advertises that their machines pay "up to 98%, " or some other percentage. Watch and record in a notebook which ones seem to pay off more than the others and play those exclusively.

17. Although slot machines may look different, they all work essentially the same way.

18. Money management and discipline are the only tactics that can save you money in the long run.

19. It is more than likely that you will never hit one of those giant jackpots. Very few do. Look for machines that pay the most for the secondary wins.

20. Look for machines that have cherries, double and triple pay symbols.

"I can understand why players are scared of the new high-tech slot machines. Hell, I'm still scared of the old ones."

21. Winning at slots can be as simple as leaving the machine when you are losing, and staying when you are winning.

22.. Linked, progressive slot machines have a much lower pay back (80-85 percent) than non-progressive slot machines.

23. On the slots, you must set your win goals lower and take those small wins and leave, or at least move to another machine.

24. Never leave a machine on a winning streak. Set a loss in a row limit, then move on to a new machine.

25. Your bankroll determines what denomination machine you should play.

" Grandma, you don't have to cash out, " I told her. "The credits will build up as long as you play, and you can play off those credits if you like." She smiled, almost guiltily then answered: "I like the sound."

-Anthony Curtis

26. Slot machines are not fixed to cheat you. They are set to pay out a certain percentage over a long period of time.

27. If you have no discipline, no money management skills, and just can't stick to those win/loss limits, then you will most likely lose almost every time you play.

28. Today's modern computer-chip slots could have as many as several billion different combinations on a typical machine.

29. If a casino does have loose machines, they "may" be near the entrance, near the cages, on the ends of aisles, on carousels, or any place where people congregate.

30. Other than casino execs, who decide on machine placement, no one working at the casinos know where the loose machines are, or even if there are any.

"They sit there, all bright and shiny, with their left arm pointed to heaven, of all places, pleading with you to fill their stomachs with your silver dollars, quarters, anything."

-John Patrick

31. A slot machine will pay out at the same percentage whether its day, night, a weekday, or a weekend.

32. There is no system for winning at the slots, only a way to make your monies last longer to give you a shot at luck.

33. Playing today's new video slot machines, you get the same percentage of payback whether you bet one coin or 90.
