Ask the Slot Expert

7 December 2000

Is there a key to winning on online slot machines and, if so, what are some of your suggestions?

Thank you,
Sonja

Dear Sonja:

The keys to winning on online slot machines are the same as the keys to winning on real slot machines.

First, play the best number of coins. I have a series of tips that give the best number of coins to play on the different types of slot machines. You can find them by clicking on the search button and searching for the keywords "best coins play" in the Games section. In the "Articles no older than" box, choose "All items."

Second, have sufficient bankroll. I like to have enough for 50-100 spins for each session.

And third, have a plan before you start to play. Know when to quit. Decide beforehand how much you're willing to lose on a machine before you give up. Don't chase your losses. Also decide how you'll handle your winnings. For example, say I start with 100 credits. Suppose I hit a few things here and there, but I never get above 150. I usually play until I fall back to 100 and cash out breaking even. If I get above 150, though, I'll raise my cash out point to 125 so I can leave with a profit. And if I keep hitting new highs, I keep raising my cash out point.

Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
John
