I recently won tons of virtual money on my computer using a computerized version of the one-eyed bandit.

This game had you press the buttons three times and if three 7's or Bars or fruit came up you won money.

Instead of pressing them in a timed fashion I instead closed my eyes and let my intuition tell me when to press the button.  I started to win like crazy,  sometimes as much as 5 times in a row.

Now I have never played  a real one-armed bandit machine and live in ontario, so my question to everyone is is this type of gambling possible somewhere (I'll travel).

  I believe the lottery machines in vegas are programmed to return a certain percentage of what they bring in and operate with only a lever.

Anybody have any ideas on how to make money based on what I have learned here, or has anybody followed thier hunches to achieve cash?

    I don't know, but if you won using a computerized one armed bandit simulation, then maybe you should try playing online using the same or similar as you already did.

    But it's very risky, as the games and gambling done any and every where on the world  including hte Internet those might also be "FIXED", every time that I think of gambling or about any games of "CHANCE" the word "FIXED" comes into my mind, so beware.

    And GOOD LUCK to you.

    Some of us might be much better off playing using computer simulations instead of the "REAL" thing, same fun (maybe), but no money lost (no money won either).

    Again good luck.

        Harrah's Casino in North Carolina is mostly nothing but those one arm bandits. And even tho they now have a person at the blackjack table, it is still electronic.

        As for Vegas, wife and I went there for our anniversary and well, we lost $300 on the one arm bandit in a matter of minutes. But made up all our loses and our expenses at the Roulette table. Had we known Roulette is considered the biggest sucker game there, who knows how we would have fared. Can say we had fun.

          Sidenote...the "free" one arm bandits are designed to peak your interest and make you believe you can actually beat it. The real thing is designed to take your money.

          Also, do some research, there are places in Vegas that have slots that gaurantee you win. So all is not lost if you play smartly.

                I've won money on my computer with my lottery picks mainly because I could play an unlimited amount of combinations, but I can't afford the same amount of risk in the real world.  I've never run any tests to see if I played with the same amount of risk in the real world if I would come out ahead.
