Ask the Slot Expert: Dragon Link denominations and bonus rounds

12 December 2018
Question: How does Dragon Link work with the different denominations ($0.01 to $2) and the lines played (50 lines for one and two cents, down to 5 lines for the one and two dollars)?

Ask the Slot Expert: Are bubble craps machines fair?

5 December 2018
Question: I was curious if you have considered mailing your VHS copy of Jimmy "The Scot" Jordan’s Video Poker Tape to Redlettermedia.com.

Ask the Slot Expert: Losing playing video poker

28 November 2018
Question: I'm way behind on hitting high paying hands. I'm going to lose money this year if this keeps up. What can I do? Answer: You have only two choices: stop or continue playing.

Ask the Slot Expert: Are coin-pusher machines a good bet?

21 November 2018
Question: I just came back from a cruise. In the slot section they had a game in which you insert a quarter and the quarter lands on the playing field. Robotic arms push the quarters on the floor. If they happen to push the quarters to the end, you win. What I can't figure out is how the house makes money. ... (read more)
 

Ask the Slot Expert: Why do casinos replace popular slot machines?

14 November 2018
Question: Why do popular slots that receive consistent play over the years disappear from the casino floor? When they disappear, the replacements tend to not be popular, have low frequency of play, and disappear quite quickly — in my observation. It makes you wonder why the switch was made. These are ...

Ask the Slot Expert: Triple Double Bonus strategy is not impossible to learn

7 November 2018
Question: Triple Double Bonus strategy is not impossible to learn. The exception is 9/7, which is uncommon these days. Here you have the strategy of Double Bonus with the additional plays with aces, 2s, 3s and 4s. This is one of few games in which you keep a kicker due to the high payoffs for the four kickers and ace and four aces and kicker. ... (read more)
 

Ask the Slot Expert: More on Florida's amendment about gambling expansion

31 October 2018
Question: 1) About Florida, making the voters be the only ones to initiate gambling probably adds another layer to the process, too. If they jump through the hoops, then the legislators probably still need to enact a law on what to implement and how (or else it's open season and I can have a casino in my ... (read more)
 

Ask the Slot Expert: Raising the W-2G limit

24 October 2018
Question: As you may or may not know, voters in Florida will be asked to approve or disapprove Amendment 3: Voter Control of Gambling in Florida next month. If passed, voters shall have the exclusive right to decide whether or not to authorize casino gambling. If passed, however, it clearly states that it won't conflict with federal law regarding state/tribal contracts. ... (read more)
 

Ask the Slot Expert: Betting more and winning less

17 October 2018
Question: Do you play the slots? My observation is that as you increase your bet, the winning slows down. I have witnessed this repeatedly over the past 10 years.
