Slots Odds

If you ever thought about the odds, which are possible in the slot gaming, you would know that it is possible to increase the player's odds. Although the house always has advantage, the players can also learn the best from it. But before increasing your odds you are to understand your main goal in the game.

Payback Percentage

You might have noticed that some casinos claim that the slots payback percentage is 95 percent. It means that they will return you 95 cents of each dollar, which was played in that machine. But even 5 percent of all the money is huge money for the casino and you see how casinos survive and even prosper.

Winning Chances

You count your odds with the help of simple actions. Let us assume that you play 5-reel slot, which has 17 symbols on each reel. Your winning chances in the game will be 1/ (17 x 17 x 17 x 17 x 17) = 1,419,857. So it looks like you have one chance in over a million tries to win. That is the reason you should be careful with choosing the slots and playing them.

Myth Busting

There are some people, who claim that if you have a club card and play slots with it, the casino sees that and decides to tighten your chances. That is not actually true. The casinos love that you spend much money in their places. The more you spend, the more they like you. That is why some people receive complimentary drinks, dinners in the restaurants and even hotel night stays. Isn't it good?

Increasing the Odds

One of the best ways to start winning the game of slots is to increase your odds. One of things you should do, first of all, before you start playing for money is to read the pay table of the slot machine. In the pay table it is usually noted if there are some wild or scatter symbols. You will also learn if it is a bonus slot machine and whether you have a chance of the free spins or additional treats.

Another way to increase the odds is to manage your bank roll properly. If you want to win a large jackpot, you should play progressive slots. And at the same time you should bet maximum to win progressive jackpot. If you want just to enjoy the game, you can easily play any other type of slot machine for less coins but for some winnings.
