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.

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.

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 #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.

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.

Casino Slot Revenues Hammered by Weather

Slot machine revenues at Connecticut's two Indian casinos fell in January, according to monthly results reported to the state. At Eastern Connecticut’s two casinos, slot machine revenue fell last month as record snowfall depressed business. Other local enterprises were also hurt by the storms.

Foxwoods Resort Casino and MGM Grand at Foxwoods reported slot machine revenue of $48.5 million for January, down 5.9 percent over the total for the same month in 2010. In the Uncasville section of Montville, slot revenues at Mohegan Sun were down 12 percent in January compared to January 2010. Slot revenues at Foxwoods in Mashantucket were down 6 percent. for the past five Januaries, both casinos have seen decreases in year-over-year revenues.

The property had increased its year-over-year slot revenue for four of the previous six months; therefore, the drop was particularly notable. When the casino had 2,000 fewer slot machines, its slot win of $48.5 million was the lowest for a January since 1997.

Foxwoods was convinced by the positive feedback from slot machine customers, which resulted in extending a ticket printing agreement with Hamden-based TransAct Technologies Inc. To all of the 1,100 slot machines at MGM Grand at Foxwoods, TransAct’s Epicentral system is being expanded from about 300 now.

Going from $5.2 million in December to $4.8 million in January, Foxwoods decreased its free slot play, usually a sign that business is stabilizing. Offering $5.7 million in free play for January compared with $3.4 million in December, Mohegan Sun went the other direction. Mohegan Sun gave away more slots play than Foxwoods and it was the first month in nearly a year.

During the month, Foxwoods operated 6,571 machines compared to Mohegan Sun's 6,372. For Mohegan Sun, the average was $276.11, while Foxwoods' machines averaged a daily win of $238.31.

Slot Machine Proposal: Mayors Continuing to Fight Legislation

Next week, Mayors of casino towns will head back to Springfield, continuing the fight against proposed legislation that would allow five new slots and casino at racetracks in the state.

A new coalition made up of mayors from nine towns, representatives from Cities Against Slots at the Tracks, traveled downstate last week to talk to legislators and inform them how the gaming proposal would slice into their revenue and negatively affect jobs. Des Plaines Mayor Martin Moylan said he plans to be there when lawmakers meet again, although the legislation is still being discussed in the Senate Gaming Committee. About the gaming proposal, Aldermen also have called area legislators.

Moylan said, “We have to be vigilant, but we’re not resting still.”

Midwest Gaming owes the state roughly $300 million over the next 30 years as part of a bid agreement. It is opening a casino in Des Plaines next fall.

With communities like Chicago Heights, Dixmoor, Harvey, Summit, Hodgkins, and five others, some of the revenue from the casino would also be shared.

Moylan added, “If our revenues are down, (those towns) will suffer also. If you have a small budget, this is a shot in the arm.”

To continue discussions, Moylan said that for this week, a conference call has been scheduled by the mayors from the towns. The coalition also has representatives from Peoria, Metropolis, East St. Louis, Elgin, Joliet, Alton, Rock Island and Aurora. On Nov.29, state lawmakers will meet again.
