Slots,tables, or V.Poker?

Repeated violations of forum rule 1.16 - troll
Through out my years playing online, my best success was always video poker. Yes, I play plenty of slots and table games, but only when VP was ice cold.

What is the choice of most players?? If you pick slots, is it because you could make small bets, and get allot more action, or because your committed to slot play as a result of always taking bonuses??

HI 4 of a kind,

For me I like to play pretty much the same as I would be in a B&M casino.

First off I like to sit back crack open a beer and start with the slots, they are mind numbing and you can just sit there an watch making small bets for a potential good return.

Depends how I do on the slots really, if i'am winning I will keep going or if Im still excited enough i will continue on slots.
After this I will go and play some BJ for a while tryinig to win back what I lost on slots, almost never works but thats how I roll.

After that If I still got some money I will play some of those games I dont usually play like VP,craps,roulette and some others

To tell you the truth I have played VP only a hand full of times and done pretty well on it.
I have played probably a total of about 200 hands and in that I have gotten a natural royal once, playing deuces wild I got 4 wild a few times.

I mainly play the deuces wild if im playing VP, 4 hands a pop.

I like numerous slots, but the best wins I ever had were obtained on video poker through reckless double-ups. My best doubling shot was 370 to 740.
The main problem is greed which makes me hit one time too much :eek2:

Hiya. I play mainly Roulette, 35/1 payouts, and sometimes Sic Bo, up to 62/1 payouts. Unless it is totally free, and no play thru, i never take a bonus.

I would like to add, that Roulette is NOT a 50/50 game, and imhop should not be played like one. If you want 50/50 go play War.

I've always avoided slots because in the BM world, they are the easiest for casinos to manipulate, and I don't see why it would be any different, if not worse, with software developers online. Online everything is based on RNGs, but, at least with table games, developers have real-life probabilties to live up to re RTP. This is also true of video poker, which I also play occasionally, but, for the most part avoid because of the relatively high variance.

You might wanna try VP love2win. Depending on the machine, it has just as much variance as the single number roulette bet, with much higher return. And as for the 4/17 Sic Bo...87.5 RTP @62/1 :eek2:

I always used to play video poker but now I'm a video slot junky - regular 3 reel slots I find really boring but video slots with all their little animations and sounds and stuff I like. Plus you can win pretty big without doing anything too hard!

myself i get stuck on slots all the time. Made some huge hits on big bets, but i can never seem to find the cashout button.

In Bm casinos I sitch around beteen slots and blackjack and once in a while craps. But same as online I cant seem to leave when i should and mostly walk out broke.

This is exactly the way I play! I rarely take a slots only coupon, because I almost always like to sprinke in sessions of BJ inbetween my slot play. Of course if I keep winnning on slots, then I keep playing slots, but how often does that happen?

Trying to win back what I lost on slots at the BJ table actually tends to work more often than not, but when it doesn't im usually sitting there staring at a zero balance:(

Yep, Slots because of the Bonus WR's and because they're more fun!

When I started gambling online (2001) it was all card games for me, but the wagering got more and more ridiculous (I only deposit if I'm getting a bonus 99% of the time). Then I joined CM in 2004 and started seeing some good slot wins in the "Winner Screenshots" thread; it was a combination of wanting to hit the same great wins, and the change in bonus WRs that pushed me that way.
I expected them to be fun, but not profitable due to the high HA, but have been surprised that I have continued to make money from bonuses every single year I've played!

I never, ever, try to double-up, regardless of the amount won.
I don't play much VP, but when I do it's usually 50-hand at MG, and I ALWAYS double up if my return is less than about 75% of my bet. I guess it all evens out in the end, but I hate collecting less than I've bet! :mad:

How do you over come this issue when playing predominately slots? I couldn't even begin to count the number of times I wagered 5 and 10 dollars on spins like in the real-series RTG, and got back like 40cents.

I was only referring to my Video Poker play - slots are a totally different kettle of fish!

My choice would be online Slots. I absolutely play them for fun. Fortunately, I do hit jackpots while playing at some top ranked sites. I think I have hit most of the time at Slotland on their weekly promotions. Their slot machines are always lucky to me.
