Ask about hot machines. Casino floor employees can be an excellent source for information about the hot machines. While they cannot tell you the specifics regarding how a machine has been programmed, they can tell you what they’ve seen with their own eyes. Tips these folks well and they will steer you in the right direction.
Stay in your financial comfort zone. If you feel more comfortable playing with quarters, then don’t sit down at a $1 machine. The resulting nervousness about the higher superslot stakes will keep you from playing smart and you will be that much more likely to make mistake and quickly lose your bankroll.
Don’t follow up good losses with bad ones. One of the biggest mistakes poor gamblers make is getting down early, then betting in higher denominations in attempt to get it back quickly. This almost always results in heavy losses. If you are down at a $1 slot machine, don’t move over to the $5 machines in a “quickie” attempt to recoup your losses.
