Just wondering if anyone has certain stratagies they use when playing slots.

For instance you deposit 50.00 to 100.00 and ususally do 1.00 spins..Are you likely to just pick one slot and play it out, or move around..Do you have a certain amount you play before you move to the next slot?

I feel like I am all over the place when I play and don't know if that is a good idea...Input??:clap:

50 dollar deposits i usually get bonus 100 percent or more.so start with 100
then i do 1 dollar bets and i always start at mayan or crystal waters they are the games that gets me started becasue of their could be big payout for bonuses once i go up i then go around to check out other games but i only start at 1 dollar and after 20 to 30 dollars with no wins i go to next

You probably don't want slot techniques from me...I was just recently asking someone how they win, I was asking them for theirs...lmao.

But, what the hell...here are my losing techniques....

If I deposit $50, I never ever do $1 spins, I will start at $0.40 until I get down to $40, then I may or may not spin another slot for $0.40, possibly $0.20 depending on my mood. I really like t-rex so that would be 25 or 50cents. I usually do $10 on each slot I like.

If I deposit $100, I might do $1 spins, maybe down to $70-$80, then move back to $0.40.

I always play my favorite games, once in a while I will try a new game and do ok, and sometimes I just don't like the feel of a new game for me.

Soooooo if you always want to lose, follow these directions. :cool:

Unless a slot is REALLY cold, I stick with one slot unless I win something big and then I'll start to play around on other games. Starting with your $100 example, I would play 50 spins at 0.20, if no bonus then 50 spins at 0.40, if no bonus then 50 spins at the next level etc etc. If a bonus hits and it's a small one I start over. If it hits and its a decent one, I carry on from the point I'm at doing the same 50 spins and move on thing. I dub it the slotingale strategy :D

Dang!!! Now I know why I lose so often!!! Gotta change my strategy to something better than this!! :p

Seriously, I do not think there is a "real" strategy, everyone has there own idea about what they like to do. I am a low roller, I never up my bet if I am losing! Or winning, for that matter. I never stay at any one slot too long, I bounce around looking for the slot that wants to give me money. Instant gratification is my main goal playing slots. :D

If there is a random slots game (like at RTG, Cleopatra's Gold @ a buck a spin), I will give it a go to try to get my balance back up. If it doesn't happen in ten or twenty spins, I quit. Then, I frown and say to myself, are we having fun yet???? :p

I was being serious about just asking someone about their strategy..it's so weird, I could have started this thread. I got some good advice, hopefully not too hard for me to follow.

I'm a low roller too...but I do beat myself up when losing. :( It's just more fun winning, but I forgot what that feels like. :( I told my husband last time tonight, then I will take a break for a while.

Fingers crossed!

Thanks for your replies...I usually put at least 20.00 into one game before I move on, however I just always think it could be that next spin..I see people who hit on break de bank and I have tried that so many times (must confess I did hit on it last night for the first time), anyway, with a slot like that with such a high variance I am thinking that those that are hitting are investing alot..Hanging in with that slot...Of course the other side of the coin, is you can hit something big on your first spin..I guess it is just timing...Ok, now I am really confused:lolsign:

Ok, this is literally impossible, mathematically impossible. I cannot hit anything, I mean nothing, nada, zilch, zero, it's ridiculous, it really is.

This has been going on for months and months, thousands and thousands of dollars with nothing, I'm not just saying "nothing" I mean literally nothing!!!

I only play a few casinos, I don't jump around to 20 different ones.

It's been nice knowing ya'll...stick a fork in me I'm done. (I gotta go puke now)

When I was playing (only had 3 casinos the last few months... 1 Rival. 1 MG and 1 RTG), my slot techniques were as follows...

1)Deposit $20 -$25
2)play for 5- 10 minutes low rolling( .40 -.60 /spin)
3)lose everything. close casino

Repeat steps 1-3. I was doing this every day at all 3 casinos. Enough is enough. I've uninstalled all casinos and closed out the majority of accounts. It just isn't fun when they can't even tease you/give you some incentive to keep trying.

Forgot to add...
The casinos technique (IMO)
1)Take your money instantly
2) If you are lucky enough to win, make you do the 9 steps from hell to get your withdrawal request processing
3) If you do get your winnings, then they label you a bonus abuser or a negative value player.

You would think these casinos would take a closer look at what the players want and expect. I didn't expect to win all the time, but geez, is it asking too much to be able to play for more than 5-10 minutes on a deposit? Any type of win would have been treated as winning a jackpot. My "entertainment" money is now going for other things, so who really loses here????

i don't think it helps honestly - some casinos just suck, never ever let me win - especially RTG ones. variety is good - jmo.

sorry about your bad luck though, i know what u mean, mine is pretty much the same lately. :axeman2:

I usually stick with a Slot and Maintain my betting pattern. The worst thing that can happen is you are playing $5 and your drop to $2 and you hit the FS... That really frustrates me.

Id rather stick with the same bet and continue playing until i hit the FS. I played Alladins gold or Lamp? a few days ago... Took ages for the FS to come, but when it did, i broke even.

Persisted with Celtic Crown for a while and the hit for 8k finally came. Went onto Paris beauty and it sucked, but i continued playing. Ended up winning a random (which was small - 1.2k or something) and it then paid another 6k for 5 Scatters on the FS.. They did cost a bit to struggle with, but the pays were much higher than what it took.

There have been days where after you get a small win in the FS, the Slot goes dry and never gives you the FS in 100 to 500 spins... It happens, but when it happens TOO Often, then i suppose questions need to be asked.

I believe in all eventuality (from experience on MG and RTG) 60% of the time, a Big hit pulls through after the long dry spells.... It just depends if your bankroll will allow you to ride that spell out.... Celtic Crown, Paris beauty, Cleopatra and Ronin proved this to be true on my last RTG session.

My biggest wins have come from upping bets as the balance increases... I am looking for play time and i want to hit something DECENT...

I also up the bet for a while and revert back to my original bet (I look for more spins) to ride the dry spells out.
