Sometimes, as players, we want to get to the bonus faster. One way is to simply buy a bonus, if the game will let us, but another way is to rapid fire to get to the good stuff.

However, does speeding through spins until reaching a bonus hurt the bonus?

I find that when I rapid fire on a slot machine and land a bonus, the bonus isn’t as good as a natural bonus. What are your thoughts?


Thanks for the question, and we can put your mind at ease to confirm that the bonus outcome won’t be any worse or better rapid firing vs. a slower and steadier approach.

We put this one into the same category as things like the 5 symbol bonus curse. Most of us achieve these bonuses in this way less often than the standard spin speeds, so we have less examples at our disposal, making the examples we do have more prominent in our minds. This opens our brains up for more observational moments that may or may not be picking up what’s actually happening. 

Then, if we see a certain outcome a few times, it may lead to confirmation bias – we have an idea, and here’s a few examples that affirm that idea, and so it sticks in our head.

The slot doesn’t factor in how we get a bonus (whether spinning normally, rapid firing, etc.) – you place a wager, you get a bonus, and that’s all it’s really processing. At some point you may rapid fire a massive bonus, and that will stick in your head! 

But for now, don’t worry about how you got the bonus and enjoy the show – the machine isn’t holding it against you for hitting its buttons so much. If rapid firing got that bonus, at least you got it! Some of us are still fighting for one over here 😉

    Does machine know when you are almost out of money ?

      Hi David, the slot would know (the credit meter is on the screen) but it doesn’t impact how a slot works in any way. The data is recorded for auditing purposes later or in case of a malfunction and that’s about it.
