How to Pick a Slot Machine

Learn how to pick a slot machine in this Howcast video.


Hey guys. I'm gonna do a video about how to pick a slot machine, if you must.

Let's see. The slot machines, when they're on the floor, they come in a whole bunch of different denominations, they go from pennies, all the way up to 500 dollars a spin. It's really up to you what you want to bet. Some of the higher limit slots, they're just fun to watch, just because people are just pulling the one arm bandit, for like thousands of dollars in one shot. But anyway, to choose a slot machine: first and foremost, pick one that you think is going to be interesting and fun, because all the slot machines, in terms of the ability to take your money are probably about the same, so just go there, and have fun.

I personally, would choose a slot machine with like, some sort of progressive jackpot. Because you know, that way, you know, you end up making a hit, and you take a whole lot of money because you've got a few slot machines out there like Mega Bucks, is a popular one where, you know, the jackpot starts at 7 million, if you're playing dollars and, you know, then it goes up from there. I think a couple years ago, somebody hit for like 28 million dollars, or something like that. You go in with the progressive, my advice for the slot machine, whatever limit you're gonna play, play at max credits, in any machine that you're playing, because you know the reason why you want to do that is that the pay tables for the game, tend to be a little bit more generous when your playing at the max, and then also, to be eligible for any kind of progressive payout, you have to be betting the max. So if you're not, then all your doing is, say if you're playing, you know, a Mega Bucks is like a machine where its a dollar machine, and you know you can put in like, 1, 2, or 3, coins. If you do 1, or 2 coins it actually contributes to a progressive that you can not possibly ever win. Even if you actually get the winning symbols, they give some like, really, really, really reduced price on it. Pick a slot machine that's fun, and then also, play at a limit that's comfortable for you, you know, when, its like if, if your playing at quarters and you realize its like, oh well you know, betting this amount of quarters at one time is not good enough, it's gonna wipe me out too quickly. Go down to nickels. It's better to do that then overextend yourself, and then you're out your gambling money in a matter of minutes, that's never fun. But yeah, that's how you choose a slot machine.
