In this special report I will share some facts and secrets on the one armed bandits, giving you explicit details on what to avoid and what to look for in a winning game. Here I will share some tips that will surely help you win more in the casinos.
So, here are some facts on one armed bandits I tried to cover in a previous article. These facts are based on my own trials and observations since the early 90s. Here they are again, but this time I will discuss some strategies you can use to win more in the casinos.
Fact #1: They are semester machines, meaning that they only run in the fall and spring semesters.
These are the best times to play them. However, like I told you before, the machines are very sensitive during these limited times, and can’t be predicted for future dates.
Tip #1: Always play one armed bandits when the casinos are crowded.
The reason for this is that the bandits have a higher payout percentage than the other machines because the casino employees are constantly on the job and most of them are either students or people on social assistance.
Tip #2: When you see the casino employees playing the game, especially the students, take a peek at their cards and, more importantly, their hands.
The students are easiest to spot. They frequently are the ones who are playing and the ones who are itching to get paid.
Tip #3: Always, always play the maximum coins per spin. The exception to this rule is if the machine has dollar features or the maximum coins are equivalent to an all-even money feature.
The reason to play the maximum is because the casino employees typically will hand you change, dollar cards, or other small denomination cards. By playing the max, you are ensuring that, if you win, the amount you win will be the same amount you would have won if you played max.
Tip #4: See if you can play any of the available machines before you sit down. Look for the ones that offer a higher vig. Also, look for the machines that offer comps, rewards, and loyalty programs. If you can score a couple of blackjack battles, a couple comps, and a few free games, you are receiving something for your trouble.
Tip #5: Blackjack battle. If you are playing a highly colored area, you could be throwing away a great opportunity to win. Simply stand-in for your bet and, depending on your hand, increase the amount of your bet. If you lose, immediately stand-up and start over. If you win, enjoy your winnings and, if you are still in the casino, make sure you leave with a plan of how to beat the Dewavegas for good.
The fact is that anyone can win (tells and probability being the factors that govern human action), and anyone can lose (insurance pays for losses, remember). Knowing when to play and when to quit is the key to minimizing losses and maximizing wins. While playing blackjack in Las Vegas might not be something that every player will find easy to do, the rules of the game are the same (Rebuy, etc.)
