What's your average bet and speed when you play?
$300 as your biggest hit suggests you are playing 1 coin/penny per line. If you are playing "mega themed slot machines" that's usually 50 lines.
I'm assuming when you play you watch the reels spin out and dick around a little. You probably average 10 spins a minute.
After 120 hours of play at -14%, you say you are beating slots without any abnormal hits(Actually $300 as your biggest hit seems low) after 72k spins.
you should be down about 5k.
If after 72k spins someone was running 14% worst than they should be on a slot machine they should call gaming because that would suggest it was gaffed.
Did Alan Mendelson put you up to this?
Walking away ahead or not with multiple sessions over 72k spins is meaningless.Quote: gamerfreak
Right I get the math doesn't work out. But I think if you made a plot of slot gamblers similar to me there would be outliers in either direction, one of them being me.
I do think my behaviors contribute though. Like you said I play slowly and usually the minimum amount per spin. And I think that very few people walk when they are only up a few dollars, I have no problem doing that.
Luck exists in the form of variance and I've just been really lucky when it comes to slots and less lucky at games like craps and pai gow that are theoretically better games. But that's the thing about outliers, they don't represent the likely theoretical outcome.

I think I read something somewhere that gaming control requires a 100k spin test to be within 1%.(needs to be fact checked)
You have 72k spins and you are off by 13% to 15%.
I'm sure someone like ME could reasonably estimate just how staggering your results are.
