The first slot machine was made by Charles Fey who was an auto mechanic in 1995. This machine was made from nickel, and it had three reels with each reel having ten symbols. Those symbols were its card suits and they consisted of clubs, diamond, hearts, and spades. Its fifth symbol was a liberty bell. The winner received ten ties the placed amount once the three liberty bells have lined up. It is from that point that slot machines became part and parcel of casinos and clubs.
Those slot machines were very popular until the early 1970s when the electronic devices replaced them. However significant changes were made in the 1990’s with the introduction of the microchip technology. This technology leads to a huge impact which leads to the introduction of new designs which had more intricate games.
These are some of the ways which would help you in increasing your luck when gambling on slot machines.
Conducting a survey in the casino’s area
Most are the times when you will find the cash out stations and the ATM’s being busy in different areas. Try to find out if these people are cashing or withdrawing in slot tickets. You can proceed to gamble in that in that area once you realize that people are cashing in tickets. You will always find higher payouts in the trafficked areas.
Checking on the machine which is hitting most frequently
A newly introduced or purchased is more likely to have the highest paying programs as compared to the old machines. Players or gamblers love new machines.
Watching out for the black screens
You will realize some of these casinos changing the payouts remotely which is legal in many states. According to the law, players should wait for about four minutes after the last coin is played. The black screen alerts or notifies the players of any changes that occur. The machine might not accept any more coinage after the four minutes elapses.
Checking the payout
Can you compare the difference between 5 dollars and 5 cents? you will note that this difference is huge. As a player, you should try to find out if the highest paid payout justifies the inserted amount especially if you decide to play maximum coins or on the multiple-line machines. If not, then you can opt to switch to dollars instead of just playing pennies. Here the chances of winning are less frequent, but you are more likely to win huge amounts.
