How did you do with this slots quiz? Here are the answers to Slots Quiz 2

1) A. 500/games/hour on average.  These stats can change dependent upon whether coins are manually inserted or credits used.  There really is no need to hurry, unless you are playing in a Slot Tournament, and then accelerate to warp-speed for the win.

2) A. Yes, higher denominations ($5+) have a higher hit frequency, however, you are investing more of your gambling bankroll.
Start with lower denominations, and then move up when you are ‘in the profit zone.’

3) B. Most casinos promote their ‘certified’ slots at a bank or carousel with flashing, large, neon lights generally near the entrance of the casino.  Like carnival barkers, these attractions seem to say: “step right up, folks, see the slots with huge payouts, play the big winners, yowser, yowser, yowser”. 

4) C.  A casino can legitimately advertise a very high payback even if one of the machines has the advertised payback--sneaky right?  However, the casino must tell you whether the payback is all or one.  Ask if all or one slot is ‘certified’.  If the answer is not ALL--Run, don’t walk to another casino. If there is only one or two, you could spend a lot of money looking for that ‘slot in the haystack’

5) B. Certified slots payouts; whether they are advertised at 98% or 100% are programmed over an average period of time that could be weeks or months. As you know, timing is crucial in the slots game and the same goes for certified versions.  Don’t stay too long, determine the total amount you want to wager before you play, stretch your gambling bankroll and have fun.

6) B. Loose machines are a slot players’ dream.  They are programmed with more paying symbols and combinations resulting in better payouts. Tight machines are the opposite. Yikes, they’re stingy.

7) C. Also known as slot-placement.  Casino Management places different slot versions that are loose and tight on the casino floor. Loose slots are usually found in high traffic areas that can be seen by ‘wannabe slot winners’ from many angles in the casino.

8) C.   Slot players who ‘test’ a slot before continued play by spinning the reels 3-5 times with maximum coins in play each time.  If there are no payouts during that period, you are outta there.  By the way, suggest you not try B--the casinos don’t like it.

9) B. Percentage of coins played that the casinos keep in their hot little hands.  The looser 98% slots hold two dollars or 2%, while returning 98 dollars to the player.
But, hold on, that percentage is over the long term--perhaps months, while short-term play return percentages can bounce around more than a roulette ball.

10) C. This happens all the time. A large jackpot is hit with a minimal cash outlay. 15 bucks gets you $1000’s. Now that’s a long win on a short chance. Take the money and run!

As we conclude the second slots quiz, remember: ‘Not only do you have good luck with a gambling education, but you are making your luck.’
