Let’s start off with a basic truth: there are no sure-fire, guaranteed winning strategies for slot machines. How could there be? Nobody can predict or influence which way the reels will spin and stop on every drop of a coin. The person who tells you that he’s got a fail-safe method for winning at slot machines is either confused or trying to make you confused. However, there are several guidelines that do exist to help you improve your chances when playing the slots. These guidelines will be the focus of this article.
The first lesson is to know what type of game you are playing (or planning to play). Yes, I do realize that it’s a slot machine we’re talking about, but if you don’t know it yet, let me tell you that slot machines now come in so many variations, each with its own particular set of rules to follow and jackpots to win. So even if you think you know that machine standing in front of you, it’s still a good idea to read the posted rules first before inserting your first coin.
Second guideline is to set your limits before starting to play. You should have two very important limits already in place before playing. One of them is your losing limit. Think of an amount that you’d be comfortable losing, and stick to it like glue. Remember that you’re in a place where you can quickly lose more money than you’re prepared to, so this first limit is a must.
