I can't believe I just typed all that information out on Reels and what I thought about this Stop Loss BS and reread it and deleted it lol... anyways... forget it... WTF do I know?!
Post of the year, your dissection, mission. I don't think we disagree except for what constitutes "the majority" these days, and I'll cede the argument to you, as you see many more machines than I do. Really appreciate your making the calculation relatively simple.
Should quote it below so you can't delete it. Lol...thanks for taking the time.
Fwiw, my take on Stop Loss is it keeps me from going on tilt, especially if I'm losing early in a trip. I have a $1000 towel from Atlantis (never used, hanging in a place of honor 20 years), and a 2am trip down the Black Horse Parkway because I didn't have enough cash left to pay the NJ Turnpike toll. Tilts from 20+ and 15 years ago. I don't kid myself that it will have any effect on whether I win.
Learning experiences all around.
Actually I typed out and deleted information on how I consistently beat Reels. I deleted it because most likely nobody will believe or use the information. The reason I post or talk to people about it is because nobody ever takes my advice or if they do believe what I'm saying they don't use the information. I can understand though because let's say I put you on a play and after 4 days you end up losing 1500 after hitting a 4500 dollar jackpot. Your not going to enjoy that struggle and most likely going to think I made a huge error. However if you have the time to keep playing these machines over and over for years your gonna make sbout 15-20k a year and eat for free forever. The other problem for me is I can't show anyone the math on reel machines. I can only tell you that I've put millions upon millions of coin and spins through and I know what can be done. Also some inside information about theoretical return from management that I tip so sometimes tipping can be profitable. Of course I'm not certain they have the correct Theo... but like I said... I really don't know much I'm just a pinball banging around in the Casinos playing games all day and night just firing torpedoes!!
Exactly, I agree with Monet that life is all one big session, but that has little bearing on pragmatic concerns for people who are playing negative EV games.
I'll second that I'll eat up any information you're willing to share about slots, because there is a serious lack of good info out there.
I think AP's and gambling writers/mathematicians are mistaken in ignoring a game that covers 90% of the casino floor. Part of the problem is that there are so many damn games, and they're so hard to analyze without a Par Sheet. I think another part of the problem is that they're often dismissed as ploppy games by serious players/writers, when in reality there are plenty of profitable slot plays out there.
I understand what you two are doing and saying... well sorta... well they are just having fun or they have a gambling problem and are doomed anyway. You can't reach those people. They are going to do what they are going to do and that is fine. Those people aren't quitting anyway. Stop Loss or Stop Win... blah and BS they are going to get back in action soon enough.

Only 1 in 3 replies were not asshole replies. 2/3rds of the replies are useless and indicate a high level of idiocy. Sad.
