    I don't think so.

    Nowadays everything is an electronic chip. It used to be three mechanical reels and old timers in Vegas could actually "time" a machine.

    That just can't be done with chips. Well, not legally. People selling slot systems are usually trying to raise more money to play with.

    some years ago a slot tech mail ordered a little booklet about Keno machines - video Keno - but it was nothing startling, he just talked about playing patterns and not "lucky numbrers" because on a grid of 80 numbers with 15 selected there were some patterns that had to show.

      About the only things you can do is limit how much the casino can win from you and have an amount you want to win after which you walk away.

      Never turn to the ATM, arrive with an amount for slots, never spend more then that because if luck were on your side for the day you wouldn't need more money.

      Once you get to the amount you need for the visit, say $200.00 quit, collect and leave.  It isn't hard to win to a reasonable amount, it's trying to win big that takes people over the top of the hill into the long decline.

      Play more then one line, but not so many the lower prizes don't help cover it.  Say the lower prizes are 2, 5 and 10 you'd want to play 9 lines.

      If you don't get a steady return of lower prizes and special plays switch to another machine. 

      If you don't understand the rules, don't play the machine.

        Here's agood technique for slots.  Got from a book on slots.  Take 10 coins, 25cent or $1 and play them through a slot machine.  If you win 7 or more from your 10, it means the machine may be ready to start paying out or is in an up cycle(streak).  Keep playing for another 10 and see how you do.  If you win 7 or more you can decide whether or not to keep playing for another.  Generally though if you're not ahead after your 20 coins, it's time to move onto another machine. 

        *Play only machines where each extra coin pays the same amount.  Three coin machines are best.  Eg, 1 coin = 500, 2 coins = 1000, 3 coins = 1500.  Do not play progressives as they are the tightest.  Dollar slots payout the most. 

         

        Good luck!

              There are many books and opinions about how to play video poker. Some say it depends on what kind of machine you are on (they are classified by payout schedules).

              The biggest mistake people make playing video poker is not remembering they are one-on-one with the machine, not in a real poker game with multiple players. That and sticking $1.25 (five quarters) in the poker machine, getting a pair of Jacks and geting paid $1.25 and saying, "I won! I won!"

                Video poker slots are the best slot machine going because there is a human element (you) who can choose what cards to replace.

                I made plans with a friend to go to the casino. I had two weeks to prepare for it so I learned about video poker and practiced it heavily for those two weeks.

                Within 15 minutes of arriving I hit a royal flush for $1000. The key was learning the nuances of the game and practicing. Video poker is a different animal from regular poker so you have to adjust to it.

                One piece of advice I can give is to always go for the royal flush when you can. Let's say you have a 10-J-Q of the same suit and a pair of 8's. Throw out the 8's and go for the royal...don't go for the three or four 8's.

                Good luck!

                  Almost any seasoned video poker player - and slot techs - will tell you this, when a machine gets cold, make a very bad play. Break up a paying hand, two pair or something, or get a good hand and discard the whole hand dealt you, all five cards. It seems to turn the machine around. Kind of like a basketball coach calling a time out and breakingup the other team's momentum.

                  Go figure.

                    Xavier's advice was good. I do a variation of the same idea. When you get on a machine give it five chances for a win. If it doesn't win move on. If it does win stick with it and count your losing spins up to five consecutive losses in a row. If you're sitting at a machine for a while and you've been hitting you can relax your cutoff to let's say ten losers in a row.

                    This technique has a couple of advantages. The obvious one is looking for a hot machine. But it also helps you save money by moving around, looking for an open machine, getting a drink or otherwise just clearing your head and keeping you from mechanically feeding the "cold" machine money. Some days you are just not going to win so this saves you money.

                    The only disadvantage happens on days when the casino is packed and you can't get an open machine because of the idiots playing two or three machines at a time. This is not allowed but also not enforced.

                    The last time I went playing regular slots I was down my usual $ 125 with a half hour to go and I had played at least 20 machines that night. But the last machine was hotter'n a pistol and I recouped most of my money back before I left just by using this technique.

                      I play the slots at the end of the rows-I watched a program on casinos and they said alot of people don't like to sit there because you feel in the way but they hit better-I tried it at Caesers and I actually hit on the slots on the ends!

                        Just got back from PLaying in vegas. Their is NO rhyme or reason for how a slot will hit. I did find out that if I didnt get a pay back after the first ten spins that it was rare to break even or recoup from it. Will say that whilst the penny and nickle machines seem inticing since you think you are playing less money, its simply not true. To break even you have to play at least four times the single line bet and most lines are nine lines or above. So most often your playing $1.20 per spin on a nickle machine in hopes of hitting a 50cent pay back. Its so not in ones favor.  Overall I've found the quarter slots/50cent machines to have a more even payback based on a $20.00 feed in.  Definitely play the ones that have a bonus spin or bonus feature so you at least recoup some of the funds. I hit on a quarter machine for $200.00 and immediately cashed out. The best advice is to walk away (cash out) once you hit. Dont pass go, Dont sit and think its getting to be a hot machine. It just isnt. Take your money and walk away with a smile.  I've yet to understand or be drawn in by the video poker machines. It doesnt have that appeal or animation I enjoy. To each their own though. :).    I've often wondered how a software chip can determine the spin structure. Makes one wonder if a machine can ever really hit the jackpot if its programmed not to.
