Romie R asks…. “Does how much money you put into the machine affect how it pays?”
Thanks for your blog topic Romie. I will add another question I’m often asked…”Does it matter if I use cash or a ticket?”
Many people, like Romie, think that putting in $100 will bring you better odds than if you put in just $20. Or if you put it a ticket, the machine remembers how much you won previously and will try to take some money back.
As you may have heard me say before, slot machines do NOT have feelings. They do not care who you are!! All that slot machines are designed to do is follow the guidelines set out by the slot manufacturer and the laws of the land for payback percentage. So if a machine is designed to have a 12% hold, then it will pay out an average 88% payback over the course of its life. They don’t care how they get that money – be it from a $100 bill or a $3.39 tito ticket – the odds remain the same. Therefore whether you use a ticket or cash or whatever amount of money you put in the machine, it doesn’t matter.
My biggest tip is to always use cash however. Not because your odds are better, but because 9 times out of 10 when you put a large ticket into a machine, it’s easier to lose more than you’re comfortable with. So play what you’re comfortable to lose, and hopefully you get surprised with a big win!
Remember they are machines and nothing you do, NOTHING can be done to alter the outcome. So may the odds be in your favor and your timing be right!
