Slot Machine Tips – Part II

Slot Machine Tip #6 – Learning the rules of the game is crucial. At first, some of the slot machines can be confusing, therefore take the time to examine the rules printed on the machine.

Slot Machine Tip #7 – Progressives while playing should be avoided. Yes, some progressive slots typically have a payback percentage that is lower than other machines, although they offer jackpots in the millions of dollars. Your best bet is to stick with the lower denomination variety if you are still determined to take a shot at a progressive jackpot.

Slot Machine Tip #8 – In the long run, playing with maximum coins does not matter. The difference between maximum coins and a single coin is often less than one-percent of the total return, although many so-called experts will advise you to always play maximum coins on a machine. Progressive slots are the only exception to this rule. There is no reason to miss out on becoming a millionaire since you will need to play maximum coins in order to be eligible for a progressive jackpot.

Slot Machine Tip #9 – Play the lower denomination slot machines if you want to lose less money. Playing the lower denomination games means, you will be putting less money in on each spin, although you are going to lose more than you win on any slot. It is still surprisingly easy to bust out while chasing a payout on a five-dollar machine, the overall return on cheaper slots is less. If you stick with the nickel or penny slot machines and you will be playing for hours.

Slot Machine Tip #10 – Always use a slot card as it will allow the casino to monitor how much you play and possibly make you eligible for comps such as free meals and hotel accommodations. Using a slot card does not increase your odds of winning. If you are a frequent slots player, you can end up saving money in the long run. Registering for a free player’s card only takes a few minutes.

Slot Machine Tip #11 – Video reel slots are something one should stay away from, since these machines offer all kinds of animated features. They take longer to play than a traditional no-frills slot. By making sure the payout percentage is lower, the casino compensates for this. For entertainment value, there is nothing wrong in trying them. Winning any money in the process should not be expected.

Slot Machine Tip #12 – Casinos with the best payback percentage are the ones where one should play. This is one of the most important of all the slot machine tips. In helping you determine which casinos offer the best payback percentage, a bit of searching on the Internet should go a long way.

Be sure to keep these slot machine tips in mind the next time you visit a casino. The advice provided in this article will ensure that you will be able to play longer and smarter than those around you, while you may still end up losing money.

Slot Machine Tips – Part I

Slot machine tips are best for them who are about to hit the casinos. They are helpful in dispelling myths and imparting common-sense strategies which may (or may not) help you to win money in the long term and they can alert you to the fundamental pitfalls of playing the slots. Following are few of the important slot machine tips that have can make your gaming experience potentially more profitable and even more enjoyable:

Slot Machine Tip #1 – You need to know that each spin is entirely random on a slot machine. it does not matter whether or not you use a slot card and it does not matter how many spins have come before. even if the previous spin paid out a jackpot, each spin has an identical chance of winning. The better off you will be as a slots player, the sooner you come to grips with this sobering fact.

Slot Machine Tip #2 – One of the most important slot machine tips has to do with a game’s payback percentage is the slot machines pay out less than they take in. you’d be amazed at how many people overlook this fact, although it is a simple concept to understand.

Slot Machine Tip #3 – There are many slot machine myths and one should not fall for them. Wearing a lucky blouse is not going to increase your odds of winning. Slots do not get hot or cold. They do not care what you are wearing or the temperature of the coins being inserted, or how many times you play. on each spin, they are going to give you an equal chance of success or failure.

Slot Machine Tip #4 – You got to know that one is either lying or delusional, if one promises to share a winning slot machine system with you. All slots are designed to take in more money than they pay out, therefore there is no such thing as a winning slot machine system. People like Bill Stone and John Patrick offer to share their secrets by getting you to buy their books and they should be avoided in particular. You can also forget about the Zig-Zag System and the Martingale System.

Slot Machine Tip #5 – When to stop playing is a crucial thing to know. figure out how much money you can afford to lose before you walk into a casino. it is time to call it quits for the day when that amount is gone. there is a distinct chance that you have a gambling problem, if you lose your predetermined amount and still find yourself headed to the ATM machine. Enjoy playing on slot machines, but do not get addicted.

Spearfish Man Wins South Dakota State Poker Championship

A Spearfish man won the South Dakota State Poker Championship in Deadwood and got $30,000 richer. Cal Dardis was one of 104 players who participated in the Texas Hold ’em tournament over the weekend at the Silverado-Franklin Hotel & Gaming Complex. He held the winning hand on Sunday night.

Winning $21,000, Tony Hanig of Winner finished second. In third came Tyler Peterson of Everett, Wash. He won $12, 800. 93 players left the tournament empty-handed, while the top 11 finishers walked away with some cash.

To play in one of three flights, or groups, Friday and Saturday, the poker players had to pay $1,100. The top 20 people in each flight moved on to the final round Sunday. A poker tournament can be an extensive and exhausting affair, hours piling on hours of meticulous play. Dardis’ pile grew ever larger, even though players slowly lost their chips.

Distinctive attire was donned by different players. Some pulled hoods low down over their faces, while others wore sunglasses while playing. Dardis plugged headphones into his ears and brought a winning resume to the tournament.

He won $3329 in June 2009 and took seventh place in the Mega Stack Series in Las Vegas. Earlier that year, he won $2720 and took 14th in the Heartland Poker Tour in Deadwood. Since then, he has competed in at least a couple of other Las Vegas tournaments. 134 players were brought in from different states in the 2011 tournament. South Dakota had 86 players.

Tom Rensch, Silverado-Franklin general manager was hoping for 300 participants in this tournament. This would have made a $300,000 pot and a $100,000 first-place prize. However, only a third of that was managed. Mother’s Day fell on the final day of the tournament and this could be the reason for the low turnout said Poker room manager Jesse Karn. He added that the tournament still helped liven up casino, drawing more gamblers than a usual weekend in May, even with turnout lower than last year.

In 2011, Bill Swan of Miles City, Mont. Won the title and took home $40, 000. Richard Morgan of Deadwood finished in second place. He won $27,000.

Slots Tips

Overview
Slots is a random game where past spins have no bearing on future spins and therefore, skill or strategy will not ensure that you win. However, having said that, there are some tips that can be used to improve your chances of winning or to limit your losses while playing slot machines.

Choosing Your Slots Game
Before you begin to play you must choose the machine that is best for you. Decide on the type of slots game you want to play and choose a machine with a theme that appeals to you. Make sure that the machine accepts coin denominations that suit your bankroll and will allow you to continue playing for some time. Make sure that if you are playing a video slots game with special features and interactive bonus rounds, that you understand the rules of play before you begin the game so that you do not miss out on opportunities to win.

When Playing Progressives, Bet the Maximum
When playing on a progressive slots machine, you will only be eligible for the progressive jackpot if you bet with the maximum number of coins per spin. Even if you hit the progressive jackpot, but you did not bet with the maximum number of coins, you will not win the jackpot amount. You are able to play with the smallest denomination size as long as you bet with the maximum number of coins, so make sure to choose a machine to suit your bankroll.

Set Limits
It is very important when playing slots games that before you begin you set limits on your betting. The naked pull limit is the number of times you are prepared to spin without winning and the loss limit is the amount of money you are prepared to lose before you quit. It is most important that you stick to these limits. It is more productive to quit when you reach your limits and come back fresh another day, than it is to continue as your frustration and anxiety increases.

Following Slots Strategies
As slots is a random game, slots strategies will not guarantee that you win. However, many slots strategies simply create a system for betting. It can be a good idea to stick to a system to ensure that you bet in a systematic and organized way without letting emotion cloud your judgment. This may help you to keep on top of your bankroll and your winning or losing and can only be helpful. If slots strategies work for you, you have nothing to lose.

Harrah Misses Slot Machine Data – Fined $20,000

At Harrah’s Resorts, it was discovered that for 154 days in 2008 and 2009, key electronic data was missing from the casino's slot machines and therefore it has been fined $20,000. The computer data helps the state to calculate its share of the tax revenue generated by slot play and it provides an accurate count of the cash inside the machines.

In documents posted on the website, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement disclosed that because of space limitations, the information was "permanently lost" from a backup storage system consisting of magnetic tape.

Parent company of Harrah, Caesars Entertainment Corporation has agreed to pay the fine. Regional Vice President of Marketing for Caesars Entertainment, Jennifer Weissman said that to regulations, Caesars Entertainment takes the adherence very seriously. He added that they are confident that all issues have been resolved and they recently have received an order approving the proposed settlement.

Meanwhile, it was reported that Harrah's Chester Casino and Racetrack slot revenue fell 10.98 percent in May. The report explained that seven out of the nine Pennsylvania casino properties witnessed a decline in revenue in May when compared to last year in the Pennsylvania Gaming Board figures. Compared to $25.8 million in May 2010, Harrah’s slot revenue was $22.97 million last month.

Harrah was one of seven that experienced a drop in gross revenues and it was one of the nine Pennsylvania casinos open for business last May. Thanks to the September opening of SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia, the statewide total was up 2.28 percent statewide, to $205.5 million.

Jumping 16.58 percent from $20.4 million to $23.8 million, Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh was the only property to experience a robust increase. At Mt. Airy Casino in Monroe County, revenue was up a modest 1.7 percent.

Arlington Village Officials Supports Slot Machines At Arlington Park

Slot MachinesThe Arlington Heights Village Board is now in favor of placing slot machines at Arlington Park. The Board indicated Monday that Slots at Arlington Park would be worth the gamble to ensure the continued viability of the racetrack.

Mayor Arlene Mulder read a statement in support of up to 1,200 slot machines at the racetrack at the end of Monday night's village board meeting. When considering proposed gambling expansion, a discussion followed with Trustee Joseph Farwell asking the board schedule a special meeting to adopt a formal resolution either in favor or against the slots so they can send that message to state legislators to use as a guide.

 

With only trustees Thomas Hayes and Mike Sidor opposed, however, Hayes said he was open to a scaled down slot proposal and Sidor said he wanted to have an open discussion and has lost sleep while considering his position, most of the board came out in favor of slots.

New to the board, Trustee Michael Sidor said he has talked to residents and received mixed responses. Even though he wants the village to prepare for the worst case scenario in case the park does close, he was generally supportive and willing to have a discussion.

Because the discussion was not on the agenda, no formal action was taken at the board meeting. To allow the public to weigh in and discuss the matter further, village board officials said they might call a special meeting for next meeting.
