TIP 5: START SMALL TO WIN BIG – “PRIME THE PUMP”.
Bettors who use “Prime the Pump” assume the fact that wins will not come immediately. They start with small bets, gradually increasing the amounts they expect to be large when the wins come.
In fact, you are likely to win sooner or later, and starting with small bets will certainly result in some players not being winners. The percentage of return will always be the same, even if you had bet identical amounts on each round.
Chuck Flick, a slot machine player who has tested many betting systems, tried “Prime the Pump,” increasing his bets on a regular basis. In five tests, he had four losing sessions and one winning – a normal result, even if you are not starting with small amounts.
TIP 6: PLAY SLOT MACHINES LOCATED AT THE EDGES OF THE PLAYING AREAS.
The theory is that machines located at the ends of the rows are visible to passers-by, and casinos want other customers to see players winning at these slots.
Nowadays this fact is much less important as prize payouts are made through bar-coded vouchers instead of the traditional coins dropped on a tray. The obvious signs that you are winning are gone.
In modern casinos, the games are generally organized by the same guy in each row and usually have the same payout percentage.
