How to Win at Online Slots GamesWritten by Randy Ray
Being a winning slot machine player is to some extent impossible. All slot machines are specifically designed in order to give house a long term edge, so house will always come out ahead if you play long enough. The only real way to counteract house edge on slot machine games is to play a game with a really big jackpot, bet max every time you play, and hope that you hit jackpot. Then when you do hit really big jackpot, guess what you do next? Stop playing that game.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that you shouldn't play slot machines. In fact, I think slot games, especially really good ones, are a lot of fun. But you want to keep in forefront of your mind that mathematically, what you're doing when you're playing a slot machine on a long term basis is paying for entertainment. You can calculate how much you're paying for that entertainment by multiplying house edge times your average bet times your number of spins per hour.
For example, if you're playing a slot game with a payout of 95%, then house edge is 5%. (The casino keeps 5% of every bet you make long term.) And if you're average bet is $3, then you're going to pay an average of 15 cents per spin to house. (5% times $3.) Assuming you're making 500 spins per hour, that game costs you $75/hour to play, which may or may not be a reasonable price for you entertainment. That depends on your bankroll.
How to Win a Million Dollars Without Spending a Lot of MoneyWritten by Randy Ray
I love Major Millions. And realistically speaking, there's not really a "strategy" for playing any slot machine game. But there are bankroll strategies that can keep you entertained and still give you an opportunity to win big playing internet's biggest progressive jackpot game. That's what this page is about.
First of all, you have to understand that progressive jackpots, like lotteries, are longshots of epic proportions. You're not likely to win. Does that mean you shouldn't play though? I don't think it does at all. I think a frugal gambling approach to playing Major Millions would be similar to how a lot of people play lottery: a little bit at a time, but consistently. Most of people I know who play lottery buy a ticket every time. And if jackpot is higher, they'll buy more tickets. I think this is a good approach, and could easily be applied to our game of choice.
So here's my proposed strategy: I'm going to play Major Millions on a consistent basis. This means I'm going to play it daily, twice a week, weekly, or every payday. Doesn't matter what timeframe is; all that matters is consistency of play. But I'm not going to play big sessions, because I don't have a huge bankroll. But I am going to play max bet every spin, because that's only way to win life-changing jackpot.
The next part of strategy involves how many spins I'm going to take per session. And what I'm going to do is increase number of spins I make based on size of jackpot, idea being that higher jackpot, better payout percentage. (Although realistically speaking, I won't see a higher payout percentage because of a bigger jackpot unless I eventually win jackpot.)
