If you’ve come here looking for slot machine tips to help you win more on the slots, you’ve come to the wrong place. There are no tips that will help you win or be more successful while playing the slots. There are however some tips that will help you better manage your money and we’ve listed them below.

Slots Tip #1 – There is no such thing as a slot system.

That’s right. There is no such thing as a winning system for a slot machine. Think about it. If someone had a magical formula that could guarantee a win on a slot machine – do you really think they would be selling it for $19.95. Of course not! They’d be playing the slots professionally and hitting Mega Jackpots left right and center. The “slot system” is nothing more than a quirky gimmick to get you to hand over your cash.

Slots Tip #2 – The outcome of each spin is random.

Whether you wait five seconds in between a spin, or spin as fast as you possibly can, the outcome will be random. It does not matter how fast or how slow you play the game. Slot machines use random number generators to determine the outcome of each spin. There is nothing you can do during play that will change the results of the RNG. This also means that you have the same chance of winning a jackpot whether it’s been won already or not. The odds of you winning are exactly the same as it was five minutes earlier.

Slots Tip #3 – Don’t go broke.

Perhaps the biggest mistake is not having a budget. If you plan on visiting a casino, be sure you know exactly how much you can afford to lose, and stop playing when you’ve reached that amount. Chasing your losses will cost you more in the long run, even if you hit a small win here and there.

Slots Tip #4 – Don’t fall for the misconception that a slot machine is due to hit.

As mentioned previously, the outcome of a slot machine is random. A slot is never due to payout because it hasn’t paid a jackpot in a certain period of time. A game can pay multiple jackpots or none at all during the same session.

Slots Tip #5 – The payback percentage is not your odds at winning on a slot.  

The payback percentage is usually mistaken for odds on a slot machine. Assume a game has a 96% payback rate. This means that the game will pay out $96 for every $100 collected over the entire life cycle of the machine. This does not mean you have a 96% chance of hitting or that YOU will receive 96% return on the money you’ve put in.

Slots Tip #6 – Don’t play slot machines to make money.

Slots are definitely one of the most popular casino games because you make money from them. They are fun and entertaining. If you want to play a casino game where you have a chance to maybe profit and not rely so much on luck, you’ll want to check out the table games or possibly the poker room. Slots are for gamblers. They are the casinos biggest money maker, which means you will likely lose.

Slots Tip #7 – Understand how much you really are betting.

The bets can be misleading if you’re not paying attention. The first time I ever played a slot machine I refused to play the quarter machines. There was no way I was going to bet 0.75 a spin to play all three quarters. Instead I went to the nickel video slots, which in turn was costing me $1 a spin and paid out significantly less than the three reel slot. This is where you really have to pay attention. The more lines you are playing, the more you will end up spending over the long haul.

Slots Tip #8 – If you’re going to play a progressive, you might as well bet for the progressive.

Progressives have a lower return than the standard slot machine, however if you plan on playing a progressive you should wager the minimum bet to qualify for the progressive.

Slots Tip #9 – Quit playing if you find yourself frustrated or angry.

Studies have shown that when a player becomes angry or frustrated due to losses, they are twice as likely to spend more trying to win back what they’ve spent. If you are emotionally attached to your money, slot machines are not for you.
