Here is an excerpt
from SlotAdvisor's web pages:
Slots in Any Casino
A tour guide in Reno said when a casino advertises "loose slots", all it
means is that the machines are not screwed to the floor! But seriously,
let's examine what constitutes loose slots and how and where do you find
In live casinos, it's not too hard to locate the better paying machines. You
just need a bit of patience and do some detective work. So, first of all,
let's talk about the mathematics of slots.
You know that if the sign says "98% payback" it doesn't mean that if you
invest $100, you will get $98 back. It means that the long term payback
(perhaps millions of spins) will be 98%, but during the short period you are
at that machine, anything can happen. You could hit the jackpot or you could
lose all your money.
Here's a simple example of how payout percentages are set: Let's take a
basic machine that ha has 3 reels with 20 stops per reel. If the jackpot
symbol is "7", you can be sure that there is only one of those on each of
the reels. To calculate the odds of lining up three sevens, you multiply 20
x 20 x 20 = 8,000. One of those 8000 combinations will be 7-7-7. You have a
1 in 8,000 chance of hitting the jackpot.
If there were two 7s on one of the three reels, the odds would be 1 x 1 x 2
= 2 in 8,000. Payout percentages are set by manipulating the number of same
symbols on each reel. It is what makes a machine a loose slot, an average
slot or a tight slot. On todays machines the spinning reels are there for
visual effect only. A computer chip, known as a Random Number Generator
determines the outcome. It happens the instant the spin button is activated.
On every casino floor there are only a very few really loose machines. They
exist for two reasons: first, so the casino can't be accused of false
advertising, if their marquee screams "98% Slots", and second, it's good
business if happy winners create excitement on the casino floor. Only the
slot manager knows the location of his best-paying, loose slot machines and
he won't tell. Here's how to sniff them out..
- Choose a machine that is centrally located and is highly visible from
all directions. Casinos want winners to be seen by other players, because it
encourages them to keep gambling. It would make sense to assume that they'll
place the best machines where they'll attract the most attention.
- Ask the change person. She or he is around those machines for eight hours
a day and should have a good idea which machines are paying better than
others. A small tip could bring big dividends!
- Befriend the regulars or locals. Find out if people play in that casino
regularly and which machines they like. Chances are they know which are the
- Look for winners. Not someone who just hit the jackpot, but people with
trays or buckets full of coins. If they've been winning slow and steady,
they could be playing a loose slot machine! Grab it when it becomes
