I'm out of the business now, but no, there are no slot secrets, not now.
When there were three mechanical reels and not computer chips there were people who could actually "time" a machine.
I was working at a downtown joint and an old timer got hired. We were going on break and there were three old nickelt slot machinrs by this one bar. Since this was a casino where the employees could play slots on their breaks, he said, "Wath this boys", walked up to the machines and said, "Hello old friend."
He "timed" the nachine - that is when the first two reels landed on potential winners if the third reel matched, he knew just when to finish pulling the handle for the third reel. He won about $35 on that break - in nickels - and about $175 the rest of the night.
He told us that way back when a lot of the people in the casino business made down payments on houses playing these $.05 machines.
This was a downtown grind joint and they told him they didn't want him playing on his breaks anymore.
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
