Hi everyone! New member here!

Is there a better time of the day to play slots? I've been losing lately whenever I play at night but winning when the casino is less crowded like early in the morning.

My bestie and I drove 8 hours each way last weekend and couldn't do anything right playing at night. When morning came we were out of money. :(

Someone said we should learn table games. Any suggestions?

I have no idea why, but I do better playing slots better when rested and sober. Try getting a good rest after you drive eight hours.
Try playing video black Jack. It's much cheaper than a live table, and earns comps like a slot machine.
Driving for hours and playing all night isn't a great combination. How was the ride home?

You should ask Nathan.

Someone also said she should learn to play table games as well.

She loves to mention someone said.

Assuming you mean, "Is there a particular time of day where slot machines will pay out more?", then no, there isn't.

For that matter, the machines near the entrances aren't set up to may more (so people walking by will see more winners and be more tempted to start playing themselves); that's a myth.

Thanks everyone. We did do a little drinking. Lol. The ride home was a lot quieter than the ride to. Lol. Problem is I'm not near any casinos. The closest one is about 2 1/2 hours. It's Indian and I don't even know if they have video blackjack.

We're planning a vegas trip in October but wow! We don't mind driving but 18 hours? I don't know. My ex BF offered to drive but that might not be a good idea. Lol.

If it happens I'm going to have lots of questions. Also going to New York soon. Anything good there?

Yes, there is the secret switch and the casino owners hire this young kid just out of school to flip the switch at the right time and trust that he won't invite his friends over to profit from it. The owners, managers and auditors are all okay with this arrangement since they sleep better at night that way knowing their pension plan earnings are safe.

A woman after my own heart! :D I also am inclined to play slots! Welcome to WOV! :D But to answer your question seriously, there is something called the Random Number Generator that determines whether you win or lose. Sometimes the RNG is good and you win a lot of money and sometimes the RNG is crap and you lose a lot. People think that Slot technicians can just switch a flip in seconds and make the RNG turn into crap but they can't. They have to fill out a lot of paperwork and have Gaming approve them before they do anything to machine. That could take weeks.

There is also a myth that new machines are good and payout better, and after they get about a month old, they turn to crap. Here is what is happening. More people are interested in playing brand new games, let's say Black Panther The Movie, not the Activist Group ;) slot just came out today. People who loved the very popular movie will want to take a crack at it. They put in $5 Max Bet and win like $1,000 on the "Pick a Black Panther!" Bonus. They also win a lot of money on the Black Panther spins.

They are winning full lines/reels of The Black Panther, and are getting lots of $500 wins. The RNG is working really well. Let's say after a month the RNG turns to crap. You will hear people bemoan that Black Panther slot was paying out so well when it first came out, but now it's a money vacuum. They start to ignore the slot and Gaming takes it off the floor. All along it's been the RNG who determines whether you win a lot of money or lose a lot of money. Maybe Black Panther is a bad example judging by the fact that it is a licensed movie and the Casinos pay to have anything or most things with a license and want to make a profit on it.

I'll get to the 89 percentage thing now. Let's say you are The Money Pit Casino. You have spent 3 million to have the rights to have 3 Black Panther slots. You want to make a profit on the slot, so you fill out a lot of paperwork and Gaming allows the slot technicians to put the slot at 89 percent. You want your gamblers to win some money and have fun but you know you will not stay in business long if every spin is a big winner. At 89 percent, some gamblers will win big but not all and you made 10 million on the Black Panther slot machines, a 7 million profit before they are removed from your Casino due to lack of interest.

Nathan, thank you for the nice welcome! I found this site by googling video poker odds and up came Wizard of Odds. So I heard that video poker was better than slots. That may be true but I want to have fun too and video poker just doesn't seem like it compared to my Sizzling Sevens and Double and Triple Diamonds.

Have you tried the video poker, Nathan? Or how about video blackjack? If I could win at one of those then maybe I cou use those winnings to play my favorite slots. Coming home even isn't so bad is it? Lol.

I have to get some things done. It's going to hit 100 today. Is it hot in Vegas?
