Everything the slot player needs to know
|SLOT MACHINE STRATEGY 2|
Today, we are going to look at another great slot machine strategy. As mentioned in part one, slot machine strategy revolves around strong money management. If you are a nickel slot machine player, this strategy really won’t be viable for you since you are already playing at the lower end of the slot-playing spectrum. However, if you play dollar slots or higher, this slot machine strategy can be just the ticket for extending your playing times and winning some money.
As usual, you will need to figure out how much money you are willing to risk for this playing session. For our example, we will have a bankroll of $500. The first step, as expected, is to find a good slot machine to play. Look for a machine that advertises a solid payback percentage payout and which appeals to you. Once you have your machine, we are ready to get started. Make sure you pick a machine that’s the highest denomination you can afford to play. Since we have $500 in our example, it’s off to the dollar slot machines.
This slot machine strategy can be used for any type of play - so play whatever type of machine you desire (progressive, video slot, three-reel etc.). You must pay attention to how much money is being played. Once you have played half of your bankroll (250 spins) take account of your finances. If your remaining stake is about equal or above your starting bankroll, continue to play until you have played half of your bankroll—then evaluate again. Should your remaining stake be less than your original bankroll, move down one denomination. If you were at the dollar machines, you would move down to the 50-cent slot machines, if offered, or the quarter slot machines. If playing a progressive machine, make sure that you are playing one in which the max bet matches your playing denomination. If on a non-progressive machine, you will likely be allowed to change your denominations without moving to an entirely different machine.
As with the first, play until half of your remaining bankroll was put through the machine once. Again, evaluate to decide if you can keep playing at this level or if you need to move down once more. If you manage to regain your original bankroll amount, you can move up to the prior denomination level. So, this slot machine strategy is really a ladder. The better you do, the higher you go. The worse you do, the lower you go.
In the end, you have given yourself an opportunity to win and greatly extend your playing time. You hopefully had a blast - and if luck is on your side - you came out a big winner. As was mentioned at the beginning, if you are a lower limit slot machines player, this strategy is of little use. However, you could use it as a sign for when to go up on limits. If you are playing nickel slot machines, you would need to increase your bankroll 5 fold to progress to the quarter slot machines. Lower limit slot machine players are advised to use our first slot machine strategy, which can be used for any denomination slot machine - even penny slot machines.
