    I have several strange and crazy beliefs when I play certain slots and wondered if it might be fun to share any that other members may have.

    There is no room for arguments or scientific evidence in this thread....please keep it light and fun.

    So...

    What are your slot superstitions, urban myths and legends?

    1. I'll start off with sharing my belief about the slot 'Ted'. Put him on autospin and prod his tummy. Nearly always wakes him up.

    2. Fast play never pays as well as doing it yourself.

    3. Grim murito - Always pick blue skeleyon on your 1st near miss bonus for a guarenteed book.

    4. Tickle pandas tummy in paws of fury for a random bonus.

    Looking forward to reding some of yours x x

    There's the new "3rd Scatter encouragement" system which I sit here doing most sessions - mainly DoA but also other games which have a "teaser" spin when awaiting the 3rd scatter.

    1) Stare extra hard at each of the reels, nose virtually on the screen

    Next 'tease'

    2) Point at the reels - If It is a "3 reel teaser"( (C) Jon M book of slotting terminology 2003)

    3rd reel - centre, 4th reel - top, 5th reel - bottom.

    next tease

    3) "no peaking" close eyes as tease starts and listen for that satisfying sound :)

    I also have others which I'll post depending on the mockery I receive from the above :p :oops:

    With the two scatters- and desperation kicking in as I'm almost bust- I will actually point at the reel I need it to drop, muttering 'come on you c*nt', all the way along the strip.

    I used to convince myself auto spins were bad and manual spins good and pure, up until getting 5 scatters and accompanying wonderhits using autospin.

    This hasn't stopped my paranoia mind. if I lose on a particular session I'll blame myself for not having used the 'correct' method. (but manual spins pay more still:oops:)

    I'd reload a game if doing badly on it. Doesn't really work.

    Oh and I once wrapped my entire head in Asda tinfoil before playing DOA, still couldn't win diddly squat.

    If using laptop i have for the past year after clicking start fs on doa move the cursor just to the left of where you click the start spins button. Trying to leave it as neat as possible to the side of it before the spins commence. If its not perfectly skilled into position once the 1st reel lands i concede to the fact i wont get a wl.

    I also write off my balance as a lost cause and expect a crap punt with few bonus rounds if the first spin of the session on doa throws scatters on reelz 1 & 2, but misses all the rest.

    Going through 40 wl & 6 lots of five scatters can mentally change a man.

    Book Of Ra - if by a miracle a bonus round comes in, I never watch the symbol reveal.

    Rhino - to start the even rarer bonus rounds, I always click the cursor on one of the diamonds (pink squares) in the start box.

    Borenanza - always click on letter 's' of 'start' and think of adjectives like 'stunning', 'super' or 'sensational' to describe the forthcoming vile bonus round, and inevitably end up with 'shit', 'substandard' or 'shocking'.

    Jungle Spirit - on the heartstopper I always say 'pretty pink flower, pretty-please' to make it come in. :p

    I still lose.

    Forgot to mention I also circle the wilds on DoA as they drop with the cursor. (has to be clockwise)

    1 x for reel one, twice for reel 2 and so on, leaving pointer in centre of the last wild which landed.

    Couldn't keep up for the first time ever just now ;)

    See DoA thread, ended with 10 wilds IIRC was too busy wetting myself to capture screen shot :oops:

    Does that make you left-handed? the natural way for a right-hander to circle the mouse is anti-clockwise?

    I just remembered something I do when playing Spinions, and I've never told anyone this. If the two scatters drop in, for some reason I'll obscure the screen view by holding my right hand just in front of me, so as not to see the outcome. Think David Blaine.

    I know it's crazy right, I mean who plays Spinions :confused:

    I recall now also, hang on to your seats here folks, how I used to have thing for DOA's third scatter. I'd not look at the screen and await that 'clink' which, for the most part, would never come :(

    I'd also convince myself resting the cursor in and around certain segments of a game would yield better results when getting hammered. It's had varying success, but whenever I'd get a good position the slot would suss it out, and I'd have to find that next 'sweet spot'. I hate it when games have a memory :mad:

    I don’t have any myths but I recall a slots streamer who once in awhile does a myth busters session. All those people looking for a handout submit their myths to that other message board.

    My only belief in regards to slots is that there’s one big winner daily on each slot. In the waning minutes of May 4, 2017 I was the lucky bloke in getting my 5000x win in Viking Runecraft.

    No fast play

    I don't play quickly I press the spin when it suits and try not to do it in any particular way :D

    Some of mine (which I swear by - anyone who tells me otherwise is WRONG! :) ) include...

    1) NetEnt's Streamtower ALWAYS drops 2 or 3 bonuses in a short space of time for me.

    2) When I get a bonus round on Bonanza, I'll increase the volume on my phone second-notch away from top! (And if I don't get a win the first spin, I'll assume I 'messed up', and will change the vollumne once per spin until I hit a win lol)

    3) Not so much a superstition - confirmed fact - Quickspin games are controlled manually by an operator. Every time you play, he or she determines whether you win or lose! (Semi-satire :D)

    Not sure if they signify strong superstitions, or an underlying mental illness in my case lol!

    I must have become so accustomed to losing that when I get the feature scatters appear, I walk off to make a coffee and tell myself what's the point in staying as it's only going to disappoint me :)

    After I deposit I sit there and stare at my balance for a few minutes admiring it because I know it wont get above that number after I click my first spin

    If autoplay is enabled, I always have to play in blocks of 100 or 50 spins ALWAYS. In hope that within each block of 100 or 50 spins I will hit the feature. I then note which spin the feature does come in on. Stupid I know.

    Also....

    On a teaser (reels 1 & 2) which fails, watch how often next spin you get scatter on reel 3 ;) LOTS of games do this.

    I will continue to play the same slot after not just one, but two or three good bonuses in succession, mainly because we're always told slots are random.

    This is before I discovered every session has a glass ceiling :mad:

    Also, I'll purposely avoid older games when a company releases a new title, because as we know they want everyone to play those instead. Fact. :eek::eek:
