Nickel Slots Strategy
This is a super bonus tip for all you recreational players
who like the themed nickel multi-line slot machines--Play the Newest
Ones. Ignore The Older Ones.
There is fierce competition among the manufacturers to come out with
multi-lines, now that the casinos realize that a nickel player can be
turned into a quarter or even dollar player by encouraging multi-line
Therefore, the first few days after a given machine
out and is installed are critical. The casinos measure these machines'
success or failure by how popular they are; i.e., how much
they get played,
repeat, not how much money they make during this initial period, since
that is installed dictates this fixed payback %.
In order to inflate the play length and frequency,
machines are shipped with the most liberal chip (and usually installed
way), which may have payback percentages up to 99%.
people try the new
machine, it's a big hit because of the high payback frequency, and
change the chip back to the standard 92% return.
I have observed this dozens of times. When they first came out,
the Monopoly games, Austin Powers, and Beach Party
(which is so
smarmy I can hardly stand to play it without throwing up) could be
just about break even if you played maximum lines at one coin per line.
This is because the bonus games are where a critically high
percentage of the payback occurs, and the difference between the most
chip and the others is that it allows more bonus games to occur.
The optimum way to exploit
this slots strategy is to maximize the
frequency of the
by playing maximum lines, while betting as little as possible overall
The life span of the more liberal chip seems to be 2-4 weeks.
you'll see one day every machine in the bank being ‘serviced’ at once,
least that's what the slot tech will tell you. What is actually
that the ‘death chip’ is being installed.
This chip will actually return LESS that the other comparable games in
casino as the casino attempts to recoup its 'losses' (casino speak for
that are not as bloated as those to which they have become accustomed).
I have been exploring this little casino slots strategy for about three
assure everyone it holds true. The only variant is that the Strip
consider the installation of anything but the worst chip as 'liberal',
the ‘locals' casinos may initially install the best chip.
if you play a brand new machine at a Strip joint, you may
just get killed a little more slowly. But then, anyone who uses the
slots strategy of playing slots
Strip should be led gently away, deprived of his/her wallet and
cards, and be given a plate of cookies and a glass of warm milk.
2) Pappy sent me his 'sure-fire' method of slots play and
with a name like that how could I not let him speak?
My method for playing slots at the casinos is
A. Play on dollar machines only (higher percentage of
B. Get a hundred dollars in coins.
C. Play 2-coin machines only (keeps your losses
D. Play until one of the following occurs:
1. You lose five times in a row, and then move to another
2. You win 20 credits or more (play one more time to make
sure you don't have a streak going), then go to another machine and
If you win on a machine, remember it, or do like I do, write
it down in a notebook.
Play these machines again and if you
continue to win on
them-most of the time then make these one of your regular ones.
Once again, if you get up by more than $100 for the session,
cash out and call it a day. Don't get greedy!
"Like a bird building its nest one twig at a time, so
too should you build up your bankroll one small win at a time."
