Is there any level of skill involved in playing slot machines?

  • Learning the myriad slot machines on the gaming floor from old three reel machines to modern digital machines
  • How to read the paytables for the best payouts when you win
  • How to determine your betting strategy at your machine (ie; minimum to maximum credits bet)
  • How to manage your bankroll so you can extend your play if you are on a “losing streak” ($100 can be 20 spins on a $5 machine, or 400 spins on a quarter machine)
  • How to have fun while feeding your money into a gaming machine, or at least get some complimentary beverages
  • How you can build up your comp credits by joining the players club at your casino
