Online Slot Machine Tips

General slot tips

-Recognize the symbols that constitute a jackpot on your machine. All machines are different. Las Vegas attendants say winners routinely walk away from winning machines without waiting for the rest of the payout from slot attendants. The largest jackpots are all paid by attendants.

-If you’re lucky enough to hit an attendant-paid jackpot — typically $1,200 or more — do not touch your machine or leave it for even a second. Do not insert more coins or allow anyone to touch it. A slot attendant must come by to complete the transaction.

-Always play the maximum bet. If a machine will take a bet of five quarters, place the five-quarter bet. This gives you the best odds of winning long-term if you get a good hand.
