You could also look for some of those "must hit" machines, where they have to give a jackpot at $X, and if you see the meter at X minus $5, give it a shot.

Quote:RomesThe last time I had purely slot free play (150) I went to a $1 high limit triple double diamond machine and played for 20 min. Hit triple triple 3bar for 270 and cashed it out. Take a poke at a good payout if you're just playing your free play to collect it. If you're going there to gamble then just use it on whatever machines you normally play for a buffer.

Quote:ukaserexWith no vp, my best advice would be to hedge your bets. Play a few pulls on a higher denomination machine, see if you get lucky. If not, head to a smaller denomination..

How is that hedging your bets?

No, I max bet. I find the level/etc that I'm good with my free play lasting a little, while max betting.Quote:brownsfan221Did you just bet one line? So just $1 per spin

Quote:rsactuaryHow is that hedging your bets?

With each pull, there is a risk. At a lower denomination, say a quarter, with max coin bet, depending on machine that could be 50 cents, or $1.25, or even more.

And, obviously, with a $5 per credit machine, you're risking more value.

So, if you split up the free play across different denominations, you have hedged your bets. A few "eggs" in varying baskets, instead of all of them at one machine.

Now, it could be argued that the risk is the same regardless of denomination, but that's not entirely true. The odds of winning any given pay-line may be the same across denominations, but the value of the free play risked is different with differing denominations. To that end, in my mind, you have a better chance playing a quarter than $5 per credit, as you are likely to have more pulls/spins.

You could call that various things.. but hedging isn't one of them. Hedging is the elimination of risk... that's not what you are describing.

Reading this made my head hurt...

I agree. Mixing up your bets isn't hedging IMO. It's just that, Mixing it up.Quote:GWAESomeone in this thread doesn't know what hedge means.

The problem we have is the OP wants the best of both worlds and with $80 in FP that's a tough gig. If he wants it to last he needs to play low denominations and less coins per line. Unfortunately you're probably not going to have a good chance of making a score.

I'm more interested in knowing how much coin in it took to get that $80 every 3 days and how long he's getting FP for. If its all month that sounds fairly good unless he slammed in a significant amount.

Quote:brownsfan221I'm just wanting it to last as long as possible and possibly win. They are doing drawing every half hour so I hope to stretch it at least 2 hours if possible if I spend any real money wife would kill me lol

Do they not have Keno games?
