Slot Machines - Does Location Make a Difference?Written by Tom McBroom
Books have been written on this subject and debates and arguments about where "hot" machines are placed in a casino are still raging – 60 years after slots were first installed in casinos.
The classic rule is that best slots were placed just inside door of casino, so that people walking by would see jackpot winners and be enticed to come inside and play. Our opinion is that this is no longer true.
Most of major casinos today are giant complexes and you no longer can see inside from sidewalk, so there is no longer a reason to have loose slots near any of doors.
Another classic rule is that loose slots are placed on major aisles in casinos, again so that more people could see winning jackpots and be encouraged to play. However, we find that this also is no longer a universal rule.
Slot Machines - Try This MethodWritten by Tom McBroom
The reason we call this a method and not a system is that there are no successful slot machine systems that will make you a winner over long haul. The casino sets payout percentages so that they are always in casino's favor and there is simply no way to overcome that edge in long term. Of course, in any individual session you can hit big jackpot and then you really don't care about odds.
However, you can certainly play a little smarter and perhaps increase your chances of being lucky if you use a little common sense and discipline. If nothing else, you money will last a bit longer and you'll have more fun. Our method has only three rules:
1. Pick a non-progressive machine that does not have proportionally higher jackpots for maximum coins bet.
