Fishing Yourself Out of the Deep End II

18 April 2023

You and I know that you can’t change the machine’s programming to make it favorable to you. That’s the way things are when you play against the casino. Sometimes the machines are hot and sometimes they are cold and everything in between.

Okay, let us say you are a dollar player and you like to play machines that are somewhat traditional and you play full coin, meaning three dollars per decision. Or let us say that you are a dollar player and you like to play any old or new machine. You don’t mind letting it all hang out and you sometimes bet a lot more per decision than three dollars.

Here’s your help. Both players must only play the more or less traditional machines.

Now, the radical part. Both of our players are still going to play $1.00 machines but they are only going to play one coin, meaning one decision at a time. If the machine is cold at least the losses will be reduced markedly.

You will not increase how much you put in the machine until you know you are starting to come back up from the deep end of the pool. Then you might (might) go to two coins per decision as long as the upward trend continues.

The fact that you might get a little more (very little) on a jackpot if you play full coin is not a consideration here. You a trying not to drown.

Machines NOT to Play

Stay away from all the massive progressive jackpot machines. You have to play full coin on those and the house edges seem to be much, much higher on such machines. You have to play machines that give you a shot right now, right away. Those “I dream of a changed life” machines are out of the question.

Now, here is a truly radical idea and you have to have real discipline to pull this off. (Get a hammer and…uh, no, no, I was just dreaming there. Sorry.)

Going Up

You have started a comeback. Now you should try a few two-coin (credit) plays. If you find that you are still holding your own then keep making two-coin (credit) wagers.

If things are still going in your direction, then try those three-coin bets again, just a few, and see what happens. Your good luck or semi-good luck might continue.

Help? Maybe. Maybe Not.

Slot machines are fickle creatures. You could be getting creamed and then you hit a jackpot or two and you are right back in the game. Even when things are blue and the water is swirling over your head, there is always the chance that a jackpot or two can bring you back to the land of the living.

Still, there is a time to just call it quits and walk away. Do not lose all your bankroll for a trip in one horrible session.

That’s the best help I can give you. Walking away is not defeat; it’s just rest for your next fight with the machines!

All the best in and out of the casinos.
