i remember watching the price is right,press your luck,lets make a deal,tic-tac-toe.game shows all day long with my grandmother on summer vacations.what other game show slots do they have?

There is One called Wheel of Fortune, which carries a bonus spin. Played that in Deleware and hit for 1k.

Jeopardy 25Cent slot is a wonderful game too!

There are actually some pretty comical slots too. Like Green Acres . Donuts and Cops, and Firehouse. The Donuts and Cops has a bonus feature and you get to select from a choice of excuses as to why you were pulled over, its hilarious! The choice you pick gains you money!

Progressive slots are *tighter* because its networked thru all the casinos. Even the average payout hit took longer to acquire.

Stay away from the 9 lines -18 line plays. It max's out your play time and rarely returns on more then one line of play....

    I really like the Wheel of fortune machines. They are progressive and the odds are not good on the JP, but the hits are usually good when you get a "spin" of the wheel. Hit the wheel for $1000.00 a couple of times....

     

    Also like the 2 coin 10 times and 12 time pay machines. ANY type of multiplier is good, but my favorite is the $1.00 12 times pay machine. Hit it for $8600  at the Grand Casino Biloxi a couple of years ago...

     

    I also love the $5.00 and $10.00 multipliers, because even a small hit is magnified when it's a large denomination.

    I have even played the $100.00 machine just for the heck of it.

     

    This is just me talking here, but as far as the $20.00 and $50.00 budgets, I would not even walk into a Casino unless I have a minimum of $ 500.00 to wager.

     I would blow thru $50.00 in about as much time as it took me to write this.

     

    Good luck !!!!!

      are the progressive machines good to play also? if you are beginning would it be wise to play a progressive or go to a regular slot?

        I always play the progressives - they DO hit eventually.

         

        Rule of thumb is try everything at least once then you'll figure out your own set of favorites, but heed the advice of previous posts regarding length of time spent a the same machine. If it ain't paying, leave it.

          yeah that did surprise me some.i had this one person who worked as a clerk at a convenience store tell me that he used to sit at one machine all night till it hit.he would go once every two weeks.he would lose sometimes and win sometimes.i do agree with the previous posts though in that if it ain't hitting at a certain point get up and move on.i have also heard tales of people watching a person lose a lot on a machine and then that person gets up and leaves and the person that was watching sits down and then hits.

            As far as experience and extensive research goes, progressives are not a good bet if you want to hit a jackpot.  I totally agree with Miss Bee on the ten pull and out theory. I, like her, have experienced that if you don't even get a little hit within the first ten pulls, it'll be a while before anything hits, if at all.  Many casinos advertise anywhere from 95% to 99% payout, what you don't realise is that this is over the LIFETIME of a machine.  The lifetime of most machines is between 40 and 60 million cycles, about 4 to 7 years.  What that means to you is that for a period of time, that machine could hit at a 10% rate of return, then make up for it in a short amount of time by hitting 150% or more (so called "hot" machine). As far as switching machines around every week or so, most states that have casinos also require those casinos to submit requests to change the RNG, which takes a little time and has to be done by the factory that made the machine, so, no, they don't change them around frequently.  The RNG comes preset by the manufacturer to that particular casino's specifications. As far as placing the "loose" machines at entrances, many Vegas casinos tried that and found that players went no further in the casino than the front door, so aborted the practice. If you want, go to robison.casinocitytimes.com there's some really good advice, and blows me away as far as slot knowledge goes.

                The story about someone sitting at the same machine is sadly a reality for some.

                I witnessed a lady sit at the same dollar slot machine at Caesars in Vegas for several hours . There's no telling how many $100 bills she fed into it to hit a (ready for this?)  $1000.00 jackpot.  No, she didn't hit the JP, but spent the equivalent OF it trying to HIT it.

                  A couple of years ago I had a co-worker that won over $140,000 on a slot jackpot.  Later I learned that that didn't bring her up to even for the year!  She and her husband had lost over $150,000 playing slot machines over the year.

                  Very sad.

                    your right about that.it amazes how some people chase a jackpot or even a cash 3 win but they spend more money chasing it than they actually win.in the end it defeats the purpose.a hollow victory at best.
