We have already put emphasis on the importance of understanding the basics of the slot machines and acquainted you with the most popular myths and hints that might be useful during your game session. Now, it is time to discuss another serious topic and help you determine how much time to spend in playing on one slot machine and how to determine if it is a “loose” one.
As mentioned earlier your bankroll is broken down into stakes. Here is an example. Presumably, your bankroll is equal to €200, while your stake amounts to €20. So, before you get started, you have to take out the stake first.
As soon as you finish reading, you will be quite familiar with the best slot machine strategies that ensure your utmost gaming experience and most of all, the profitability of your game session.
Loose Slot Test technique
Have you ever heard of the so-called Loose Slot Test technique? If you have not, you’d better carefully read the lines below and avoid overspending at a slot machine that will probably not grant you a decent payout.
First of all, you have to think about the number of credits you want to play, which are estimated when you set the number of lines you would like to play multiplied by the multiplier. It is important to note that this is not a random number. On the contrary – the type of slot machine you have chosen plays a great role in determining the number of credits.
The next thing is to select the number of spins you would like to make. In most cases, players choose to play ten spins but it does not mean you cannot opt for another number. However, you have to stick to the chosen number.
The next step you have to take before you make the reels start spinning is to set an amount you want to invest in playing your preferred slot game. The best way to determine the right amount is to multiply the number of credits by the number of spins.
Let’s see what would happen in the following situation. You have an original stake of 2,000 and you want to play 56 credits per spin and you would like to play 10 spins. You, therefore, would wager 560 credits.
When the ten spins are over, you should have a total of 2000 credits minus the 560 credits you wagered. In other words, your credits should amount to 1440 plus those you have won during the ten spins.
In order to see how much your winning is, you are supposed to take the difference between the aforementioned 1440 credits and those that are in the machine on grounds that you have registered some winnings during the spins.
The number is divided by 56 and you get the number of spins you can perform.
Stay or Change the Machine?
Then, you have to set the number of spins and repeat the above-mentioned steps. If your credits reach the critical 1440 or go down, you’d better cash out and finish your game session at this slot machine.
However, if you win a prize during the second “set” of spins, that means you can continue playing and this time, you are enabled to choose even more than 10 initial spins. It all depends on the credits you have earned. Repeat the steps above and cash out whenever the number of your credits reach the critical level.
Let’s give another example. If you have 2,450 credits after the second “set” of spins and you take out 1440, you are enabled to wager the other 1,010, which makes 18 more spins. If you continue winning, then you must have found a loose slot machine. In this case, applying the Box technique is recommended, so whenever you decide to stop playing, you will be able to take home some winnings.
There is an easier way to determine whether a particular slot machine is worthy of playing, though. You can just play with a small amount of money and you have two options: you will either lose your money or you will start winning. Yet, the first technique is considered more effective by experienced players as it requires them to think of the winning strategy and decide when it is time to stop playing.
Thus, there is a chance to have only a few pennies left and to trigger a bonus game at the last spin. There is something like an unwritten law – always make your final spin with the total amount you have been playing.
Another thing worthy of emphasizing is that the amount you have to set for making sure a particular slot machine is loose, depends greatly on the bankroll and most of all, on your stakes. Anyway, the amount of stakes is variable but the technique for playing with a fixed number of spins stays the same.
The easiest thing is to keep investing money into a slot machine that is not likely to give back but that is not going to be too profitable to you. That is why it is critically important to change the machines you are playing at until you find a loose one.
It does not matter which one of the aforementioned strategies you use, you do have to move from one slot machine to another until you find the one that meets your requirements.
