Everybody wants to know how to win on slot machines and although some insist that a shortcut exists, no such secret formula is out there.
I’ve been playing slot machines since I was legal. In the past decade or so, I’ve come to learn a thing or two about them. I’m not promising you’ll win a progressive jackpot and retire to live the high life but I am watching some useful information that can help you avoid common mistakes and maximize your chances of winning.
To understand how to win, than first you need to know how they work.
There are still a few slot machines in Vegas and other casinos around the world which operate mechanically. But, these days, the majority of them are electronic.
Without getting into complex technical details, these computer algorithms generate millions, and even billions, of numbers per second. When you hit the spin button, one of these numbers is selected, and if it’s associated with a payout, you win.
That’s pretty simple, right? There’s nothing overly complicated about it from a player’s perspective. Yet, if you think about it, you’ll realize that it means you can’t manipulate slot machines.
The Bigger the Jackpot, the Lower the Payback Rate
Every slot machine has a return to plater that tells you what percentage return money the slot returns to players.
It’s important to remember that RTP is a theoretical number that explains the payback rate over the long run. It does not mean you will win back $97 out of every $100 that you play. It means that the machine returns this amount to all who play that slot. This includes all of the small wins as well as the jackpots.
So use this tip to understand that you want to find a machine that has the highest RTP possible, but also balance it out with the biggest jackpots.
Please remember that this is not a foolproof plan. Sometimes, the RTP just doesn’t spit out the right number, and no wins occur. That’s just the way things go at times, and you’ve got to accept that before you start playing a slot machine or expecting to win on slot machines.
Here you have some logical, sensible tips for winning slot machines. Everything above is fact-based, and none of it requires you to believe in hocus-pocus or to resort to cheating.
Winning slot machines is all about reducing the house advantage, knowing how to give yourself the best shot at the biggest payouts, and avoiding the common mistakes that too many players make. That’s all I can offer you, but remember that randomness rules and no matter what they say, it’s all anybody else can offer you, too.
