After watching a lot of streamers they seem to only stay on a slot for a bonus or until they done around 100 spins then they move on. Is this why they always seem to be in profit ??? I normally get sucked in, raise bet again and again till i bust out or get the bonus ?? What do you thinks a better strategy ??

Hi deanus76,

Firstly this could be a very huge reply, will see how it goes. But there is no sure strategy when it comes to playing any slot in any casino. It is always down to luck and if you play the slot at the exact time the RNG is in a good mood or not.

But lets start by saying this, As an ex-streamer myself it matters greatly to entertain your viewers as much as yourself. So when you say you saw some streamers stay on a slot until they get a feature or they stop after 100 spins, that is not always the case.

Streamers also get slot requests and not all streamers actually take requests either. I myself did most of the time take suggestions, And i usually did around 25 to 50 spins on a slot before i leave it, there was times i did hundreds of spins on the same slot in streams.

But when i gamble when i am not streaming which is all the time now as i stopped streaming a year ago, It depends how i feel if i want to camp or farm a slot be it if it is in a good mood or not. I seldom like to play a slot if i enjoy it and it is one of my fav ones.

It just varies on so many levels and aspects and each person is different.

I had many hundreds of sessions where i stayed on the same slot and lost my balance fast and was like oops i did it again. And i had many of hundreds of sessions where i played the same slot and won. But thousands of sessions where i actually play a mixture of slots, and see if they are in a good mood by doing 10-25 spins on it then leave for the next one etc etc.

But as i said above it is down to you personally, don't think you have to play other slots. it is your money, just play what you fancy, if you get a feeling you should play 1 slot, then play it, because when you get a feeling it usually leads to you walking away with a withdraw, not always but most of the time.

Anyway i hope this helps you and i hope it answered your questions :)

I don't usually grind a slot on stream unless I am doing one of the "Dead or Alive bust or wild line" sessions.

Off stream, I put a certain amount in and grind it on say Immortal Romance and see what it does.

You do get a lot of slot requests as a streamer so you tend not to stay too long on one slot. I usually give it a max of 15 minutes on one slot unless it is stone dead or I had a big hit on it.

This to an extend also applies to the Youtube video makers such as the Bandit or Craig. They play till they have a bonus and then move on. They don't always have success though.

Which streamers of slots are the best? I want to start to look but do not know with whom to start.
I watch letsgiveitaspin, rocknrolla and thebandit. All 3 play different, TheBandit and Rocknrolla can get tilted very quick and the results can be hilarious.

Keep it fun, play what you like, change bet size but not more than 2% of your balance. Do your homework about the slot, RTP (play only if > 96%), variance, what it can pay and how "cold" it can be. Play at a casino you trust and will pay fast.
Other than that the only winning strategy is lose only what you are happy with and always take your big wins home.

Letsgiveitaspin is my favorite, he seems like a very good guy and you can learn a lot from what he has to say during the streams.

CasinoDaddy streams very often, and usually their streams are entertaining as well. They are three brothers that stream together for the most part.

Rocknrolla also has a very good stream, but it can sometimes be painful to watch him tilt away thousands at the end of his streams. He usually finishes off playing super high on roulette, which sometimes gives him big wins, but he also loses thousands of pounds in minutes. Not for the faint-hearted.

The Bandit is also a good watch.

And to the OP. I think most streamers change slots quite frequent, because it would be boring if they played the same slots for a very long period of time.

I watch The Bandit and Jimboslots videos on Youtube as they cut out all of the boring stuff and just show you the bonus rounds.

Only one I have just started to watch live is Slotplayer (Interlog on here)
Dont watch him all usually but did this morning.

Been watching him on Youtube live but ventured into Twitch to watch him this morning :eek2:

I have also looked through Rocknrollas videos on youtube but I skip through a lot of them to try just watch the bonus rounds, unless he is doing mad roulette spins.

There is no definitive answer, having seen both sides of this tale. You cannot gage how a high-variance slot is going to behave, so I just stay & pray. Might be different for other types of games, who knows.

It's also dependent on the size of your bankroll, obviously. There's not much slot-hopping to be had when you start with a £20 balance and said cold slot has already taken £10 of that!

I find that it's best not to over-think these things and just go with your personal favourites. They all come good in the end :cool:

The main reasons the streamer is in profit is deposit bonus's every deposit if they require, so even if they are behind they have a bonus to fall back on.
A lot also have different requirements when wagering to the regular player, such as larger betting aloud, cashback..
And then a lot ask for donations, so in essence they can use donated money to play with and affiliate earnings so not so much there own cash.
100 spins and move on is irrelevant as there random. I've seen over 1500 spins no feature on certain games, then I've seen 3 features in 10 spins, it's just all luck of the draw I guess.

Good post! I read on a separate post the other day regarding Bonanza if your bankroll is down a certain percentage after a certain amount of spins then move on. I have applied something similar to my slot play as I thought that was a very good idea and it does work. It keeps me from getting sucked in chasing that bonus or big win and losing all my bankroll. I come back to that slot the next session, rinse and repeat. It will pay one day:D I have also started include providers that I didn't play in the past in my sessions. So far it's going good. It doesn't work all the time but what it does do is give me more variety for my money even if it's a losing session.:)


Edit: I have learned the hard way to give the newer MG slots a wide berth and if I am going to play them I only play 20-30 spins and if they seem pants I move on. I have lost many a bankroll in the last year or so with the new MG slots so lesson learned.

I have lost a entire large bankroll before trying to bonus a game (book of dead) without a single feature.
Then again I've had 3 bonus's on the same game in under 50 spins, guess it's why we keep coming back haha!..
I used to love netent even with there said variance as I had great luck with those games, but of late jatb and elements for instance have been evil for me!..
also tried merkur last week, far to boring for me though, granted they can pay splendidly, but far far to boring I find.
Still searching for my first 5 scatter and wildline on doa to!.. one day :)

Me too and I have learned. I think if your playing multi-platform switching up providers is sometimes healthy for your bankroll. I like many of the Pariplay slots and a couple of Red Tiger slots. I don't play too much merkur as I think you need a healthy bankroll in order to attempt to take those puppies and Novo slots on and I usually start off with a bankroll of €100 or less so not enough to make a profit unless I get very very lucky.

And I too love Netent and those games have saved my bankroll many a time with 50-100x wins that I was able to build upon. DOA is killing me I have played this slot to death for the last 3 months with modest bets and no wildline or 5 scatters. I have gotten close 3 times in the the last two days with the extra 5 spins but no wildline. :sob:

To add to the list, I suggest Slotspinner, especially if you like chill music, he always has it playing in the background and only activates the slot sounds when he hits a bonus. :thumbsup:

I like the youtube videos of the Slotbandit it's not live or a stream but usually hour long videos that take us through the highlights of his sessions. He is very funny. Craigsslotsessions is also good and funny. Both you tubers follow the same or similar formula and have giveaways to subscribers each month. I like these videos because they are an hour or so long and I get to see new slots that I may not have thought about playing before. Plus I like the reactions to the bonuses be it a good bonus or a bad bonus.
