    Got any good ones?

    I have one, when I get two scatters i always close my eyes until the third hits or (almost invariably) not.

    My missus plays 10 spins on a slot and unless the balance is above the starting balance moves on through the list.

    A friend of mine hit me with a seemingly ridiculous notion last week in a B&M Casino.
    He is utterly convinced that the volume control is linked to the payout. Reasoning, not completely unreasonably in marketing terms, that the louder a slot is the more it will encourage the room and that a muted slot adds no excitement value so the programmers link the volume controls to payout.
    After telling him he was a total dickhead, and making him get the drinks in, I sat down to play Zeus while he sat down a few seats away on Kitty Glitter.
    I lost.
    He won a shedload (although he annoyed the whole room).
    I cried "fluke" he turned my previously muted Zeus machine up to full and won another shedload.
    He then repeated this on Crystal Forest.

    Now, of course this is nonsense but he remains convinced (and I was wavering after a few beers).
    Anyone convinced they have a superstition/system that actually works?

    Don't know if it's superstition or not, but I feel fairly sure that only Norwegians (Scandinavians maybe) wins on the Jackpot6000 and MegaJoker (classic) slots. :p

    Either that or we just tend to cry wolf. :)


    Oh and one more while talking about the above slots;
    If you carefully feel for it when making a spin, if it occurs a delay of probably 0.01 seconds you will get a full stack (all reels/lines) of one symbol, no particular one but ofcourse Cherrys and Lemons are the most common. :)

    That actually works...No. :D


    Not sure if their good, but like you after 2 scatters come up instead of closing my eyes, I squeeze my toes together, lol.

    When I get 3 scatters sometimes the way I play the bonus round changes, I click onto next spin fast, or wait for all lines to be paid, whatever feels lucky for that time, and if I win something good, I will do the next bonus round exactly the same.

    Haven't I heard this many times about B&M casinos that the slots near the doors pay better? Or am I just thinking I heard that? lol

    I've heard that slots placed there pay better too - only if they are old slots
    The reason being that the slots have to pay out a set RTP and as they reach the end of their life they need to up the payback to satisfy the regulators.

    Of course as soon as the casinos know that we know that they'd do well to put to put the crap slots there in order to mug the unsuspecting superstitious punter into playing them when they are already way over their lifetime RTP - although that would be a tad cynical :)

    That's funny, thinking about it I realize I squint my right eye and look left, like I'm not looking, almost like when I'm watching a horror movie. :oops:

    My biggest superstition is that if a slot is going to hit it will be in the first 5-10 spins. If it doesn't I back out, reload the game and head back in. I have no idea why I think it works but...I do LOL

    that actually makes sense. looking up and to the right is a natural tendency when recollecting..looking up and left is when fabricating/creating/fantasizing...so if you're dreaming of a hit, it would be natural to look left.

    Years ago when I played online poker, I was talking out loud in my mother tongue in all-in battles when the opponent had a gut-shot straight draw like "NOJACK, NOJACK" or "NOSIX, NOSIX".
    I remember two key occasions when it did not work, one meaning the difference between me going to WSOP Vegas or not (the latter). But see my signature :)

    I find that when I get 2 Scatters, It usually works to quickly pick my nose and flick a booger at the screen. 99.9% of the time this REALLY WORKS... the other 0.01% is when I miss the screen and hit the wall or the Cat....

    LOL ... I'm Kidding... Just now someone Spits or hurls their coffee all over the monitor... Dependent on your sense of humour :p

    The worst part is that I do "stuff" even though I know it makes no difference at all:oops:
    The sad part is people that believes for real and do nothing to educate themselves:rolleyes:

    :lolup: Me too, both of these, looking away like I don't care if that third one hits. lol...but when I exit a game I don't go back into it right away though, I normally go throw a few spins in another game and then come back. Which is a lot easier to do at an online casino than a B&M.

    Clearly it DOES work:p

    Next time you go out with your friend, cut the wires to the speaker so that he fills the machine up, then come along next day after it has been repaired, turn it up full blast, and win his money:D


    I had a friend who would always say "feeling lucky" to me when I played a machine, and once he had done this, I lost. He would then put a pound in and win the jackpot:mad:

    While we're talking about superstition! :p

    I'm sitting here and having some spins on MegaJoker and then I thought of this thread, so I basically said to myself outloud in a random spin "you never know when the chests shows up".

    Result:

    I never thought i would disclose those. but here, please dont laugh:

    on 3Dice Mollah, when I get the bonus, i used to turn my laptop left and right to help ball move down lol, same on Fortune Falls(it worked twice:)
    on 3Dice tut, I close eyes as well, just want to hear that 3rd tut
    on RTG games, when I hit two scatters, I would come out from the game and would try to to another game, just in hopes to see a message "you have future going on the other game, should be completed"

    and here few from my friend.
    on Payola, he would change the speed of the game constantly during bonus game, or switch 3D mode back and force :)))


    But i think the best of them all, is on 3Dice Aztecs I always choosing the symbols on the bonus game myself (like it matters:)))

    When playing Thunderstruck 2 and getting the Wild Storm feature, I usually touch the reels (2 and 3) so that Thor lights them up. It works quite sporadically :)

    My wife insist on smoking whenever she hits scatters, before starting the freespins ... it annoys the living shit outta me, as she's convinced she'll not hit anything, if she doesn't smoke....what REALLY bothers me is, that every single time, I tell her that when she does that, she's letting someone else "take the good bonus round", and will be left with the crappy ones. Funny thing is....sometimes I'm right, and sometimes SHE'S right ...Could it be randomness hitting ?
