a friend of mine said to add money at odd times, change the bet amounts, and cash out if you win and then the machine will consider you a new user. I was just wondering what you thought. I will be going to a casino on Saturday and wanted some feedback. Thanks for answering.

I know that it is completely random. The machine does not care if you are a new player or have been playing the same game all night. It works on a random number generator and hits when it hits. Some people swear that if you use the handle it will hit more, others say you have to rub the machine to make it hit. There are a lot more theories. The main thing is to have fun. And keep your fingers crossed! LOL!

It was a lot of fun, I did bring my lucky charm and so did a lady I was sitting next to. She was rubbing it with her left hand the whole time she pressing the button with the other hand. She did win alot. :) The guy on my other side kept talking to the machine, then this other lady sat down after a awhile and did nothing but put a dollar in every other push of the button. She was pretty lucky too. I guess it is just fun watching people's little ways of gambling. It really is about luck.

There is only one strategy that can help you win on slots. It's a reasonable well known fact that, in Vegas, they place the machines with higher payoffs near the aisles. Winners are much more visible to be who happen to be passing by. Other than that it is purely random number generation, same as rolling a dice.

Its a compleat 100% random rolling system. If your playing cards, then there is a way to use a mathmatical equasion to find out what cards ar going to be where, but that would take alot of time and is also illegal.

I guess I will try a few different techniques, and cash out on any wins and also just have some random fun. Thanks for the feed back.

The only real strategy I have is to make sure I cash out after a big win. For example, the last time I was in Las Vegas I played a penny machine with $5.00 and won a jackpot that made my winnings $63 total. I cashed out immediately, then played $5 more dollars... only to hit another jackpot. As far as betting patterns are concerned, I don't think there is anything about it that follows any kind of pattern. I was watching a show on the Travel Channel talking about the odds on various games; slot machines are one of the worst, if I remember correctly. I play to have fun, and if I win, I quit while I'm ahead.

You know it would be real nice to have a Black jack dealer at the Mountaineer (WV) but all there is, is slot machines. I guess I will take my chances. Thanks for your feedback.
