Don’t be fooled by false gimmicks and myths
You hear all sorts of things. From the temperature of the machines indicating when they are going to pay out, to legends about the location of the slots in the room, to false claims about patterns you need to find on the machines to know when the next jackpot will be hit. Nothing beyond the truth. The vast majority are superstitions and unscientific myths.
We recommend that you read our article 13 Fake Tricks and Urban Legends about Slot Machines to find out what are the most widespread hoaxes about these slot machines.
Play with Maximum Bet
As we all know, when playing slots, your losses are more likely to be greater than your winnings. You have to take this into account beforehand in order to accept it and not to lose (or to choose another type of casino game).
However, one trick is to do it with maximum bet to win more money. This is most often the case with progressive slots, where it is essential to play at maximum bet in order to claim the jackpot if you win.
However, we advise you to follow this recommendation only if you have a high playing budget, otherwise you can lose your bet in a matter of seconds. The most responsible thing to do is to start playing with a minimum bet, and once you have doubled or tripled your profit, invest it by betting more heavily, until you reach a maximum bet, in this way you will only be playing the profits and not the money you have invested directly.
If you win, change the game
As we already mentioned in the article 8 Essential tricks to win money in an online casino, if you have won a lot of money in a slot machine, we recommend you to change and try another one, as it is quite likely that the one you have already won is not going to have another big jackpot. Especially if it’s a progressive slot, because if you’re lucky enough to hit the jackpot, its score will go back to zero and there’s little you’ll be able to scratch there.
Also, if the jackpot you’ve won is very large, the best thing to do is to leave the game there and keep your money in your pocket.
Don’t bet what you win
This trick to winning money at slots is important. What you win you should put aside and not use it to continue your betting, otherwise you will end up with empty pockets, betting until you’re down to zero, it’s as simple as that!
You can keep your winnings in another pocket or in a special wallet if you are in a casino, bar or gaming room; and if you are playing online slots you will need to keep track of your accounts or if you have a choice you can set the starting money you want to play with and then start the game. This way if you have, for example, $50 at the end of the game, that is what you have won and you do NOT have to reinvest.
Another option is to ask for your account to be credited with the part that will not be reinvested in the game.
And of course, if you win a progressive jackpot… Stop playing and go out and celebrate!
Learn how to get the most out of Slots
As we’ve already said, slots are purely games of chance, where personal skill plays a small part in determining whether or not you’re going to be a winner. However, if you take into account the above-mentioned tricks, you can maximise your winnings and minimise your losses considerably.
And if you take the time to learn how these machines work, i.e. what options they have, what additional features they have, whether they have bonuses or not, how the number of reels affects them, etc., it will be easier for you to make money with slots by playing more responsibly and profitably. With more knowledge.
