SLOTS

Believe it or not, craps is not the only game in the casino. Savvy players are winning at blackjack, poker, video poker, and more. Have a question on slots, video poker, carnival games or table games other than craps? This is the place to post. Let's hear about the games you play when you're not playing craps.

Of all three, I like isle, great bounce not to bad. jumers, second, nice small table, good for shooting straight out. Rythem kinda bouncy, plain sucks. Never been to wild rose in clinton. When you comming down. Would love to shoot with you.

My local casino has a phone app where you play the games and slots and win coins that you can swap for casino dollars. I’ve just started playing the slots for the first time on that app. I never understood the different types of slot games, but am getting used to how they work with the lines and the betting amounts per line.

awsome. What do you usally bet on video craps? I like to better than real craps at the rythem. Too much bounce. I usally go 16 or 17 inside. and I dollar or two on the hardways. I was able to make 20bill into 84 dollar bill. That was untill a few quick 6-1 seven outs. wipe it way. I notice they seem to come in sessions. I love using a regession on those machine. Have you tried the big six wheel? Look interesting.

Looking for some more good slot info.
I like the idea as Heavy mentioned of using the slots to rest my back and feet from time to time.
But I don't understand these modern slot machines. 🤔
I had an old 3 wheel nickel slot in the basement as a kid in the 60's. Went to Vegas once in 78 when the machines still took coins. Played a big one that took silver dollars and had about a 4' arm on it! 😀

I'm a bit bewildered by these new ones. I don't know the best way to play them. On most I don't understand why I won or why I lost and so I lose interest.
If you got tips, tricks or suggestions I'm all ears.
Would like to see this thread continue.

Since nobody has answered this up to now I assume you are talking about the slots that have a million lines on them and Mick Jagger dancing and saying you CAN get satisfaction right here on this machine or suddenly a bunch of stampeding buffalo's are coming at you and you just made twenty bucks on a penny machine..which you really can't play for a penny anyway! There are simpler machines that play like the old ones..the double diamonds that only have one line. So..If you read Heavy's facebook posts or go back in the archives you'll find how he plays slots.Which is.. you go to the high limit area, find a slot that has just paid off something and the payoff line has been left..three bars, whatever. That machine might just possibly be in pay off mode..or not. You give it a hundred bucks. If no go..move on. Of course my advice is to move on without putting the hundred bucks in..and be sure to pull yr. damn rewards out of the machine before you split. Take it from someone who has lost a few.

I love slots. Lately I been playing bubble craps with my free play. I won 23 dollars last night off 10. I buy the 5 & 9 for 3 and 6&8 place bet for 2. I did see somebody win on electric roulette,3450. Didnt see what he hit, or if the had to take taxes out. I think there consider table games.

It's not the total cash out amount that determines whether the casino will generate a W2G for you. Taxes are only based on hand pays > $1200. So you could have 100 spins that pay you $100 each and cash out for $10k and you shouldn't get a W2G. But if you win a jackpot of >$1200, you will get one.

Same with craps. The only bet on the table that will trigger a W2G is a 6 point fire bet win. It's not the color up amount that matters, but hitting a wager that pays $1000 to 1 or greater that does.

True, But I heard 10,000 or more per day on table games they will take taxes out. How many of you play electronic craps?

I take it playing electronic craps is the same as betting on a randie. Does any know if they can control it like a slot. Thinking of trying some don't betting systems on them.

I fooled around on the craps machines with my free play, on the don'ts. The problem for me was getting my bets adjusted fast enough before they called no more bets. Plus seems like every comeout is a seven, sigh......
