How To Beat The Slot Machine
“Probability is the very guide of light”. Cicero
(104 – 43 B.C.)
While there is no tried and true rule or explanation of how to beat the slot machine,
if you want to enjoy yourself with a good possibility of winning, it is important
to understand the role that probability pays in determining when / if a player
actually hits the jackpot and wins.
As you probably know already, there are numerous different types of slot machine
games. Depending on the game as well, jackpot size, winning combinations, symbols,
size and number of coins allowed in each play will also vary. Because most modern
slot machines are completely electronic, the symbol combinations come up randomly
and machines are pre-programmed to return a certain percentage (in the form of
winnings) to the players.
All slot machines display the payoffs associated with certain winning combinations
and on average a slot machine will return between 85% and 98% of a player’s
bets. Thus, to beat the slot machine while having fun, the key may be lie in being
able to identify and staying with slot machines that return the higher percentages.
Try playing the slots at an airport, bus station or other non-typical gaming spots
and your return will be ridiculously low, and you’re definitely more likely
to lose than to win.
Note carefully, the slot machines account for a very large portion of a casino's
action and actual winnings. They are very simple to use, inexpensive to maintain,
and require little or no skill to play, so it’s no surprise that not everybody
goes home a winner. But some do!
