Ever since winning RM600 at the slot machines in Genting, I've been intrigued by how they work. Is there a way to beat the system? With that thought, I decided to do some research on slot machines and see if I could beat the machines at their own game. Yeah, yeah, I am always looking for ways to beat the system.
After an hour's crash course, I am now in a position to advise on how to increase your chances of winning at the slot machines (gasp!).
1. Money management - Don't play with money you can't afford to lose. Set a loss limit before you enter a casino. Discipline yourself and stop playing once you've reached that pre-determined limit.
2. Know the payout table - Read the pay table on the machine first. Choose a machine that offers the most winnings for the lower and medium symbol combos, because these are the ones you will be hitting most often, which consequently will keep you playing longer. Do not play a slot machine simply it has a high maximum payout because your chances of winning the maximum payout are a lot lower than winning smaller payouts.
3. Hit and run - The longer you stay at any slot machine, the greater the odds against you. The casino’s built-in mathematical advantage takes effect, which is, the longer a gambler plays, the more likely the house will win. So, do not be greedy. Quit when you're ahead.
Now you're ready to have fun! Did you guys seriously think there is a way to beat the slot machines??!! Lol... :-)
