Hey guys , it's Ruby .
We are back in Las Vegas and we are going to be sharing with you secrets to winning at .
I'm going to be sharing with you how they work .
Common myths and some strategies to help you win money , including my number one tip to increase your odds .
Sounds pretty good .
Let's get started .
The first thing you need to know about slot machines is that they are random number generated or R and what this means is that every single millisecond that this machine is sitting here without being played .
It's constantly thinking and it's constantly changing .
It does not stop thinking until you hit that play button .
Think of a slot machine as a giant calculator .
And it's balancing out its skills of how much money goes into the machine versus how much money is coming out of the machine .
It has a set percentage level of what it needs to pay the players based on how much money is going into the machine .
Typical casinos in Las Vegas are going to have a payback percentage of anywhere between 90 to 96% .
That means out of 100% that you put in between 90 and 96 of that is supposed to come back to the players .
Basically , just know that while you're playing , the machine is trying to decide when the last time it paid out and if it needs to start paying back money or not , unfortunately , you don't know when that's going to be because it's random .
So now that you have the basics on how the machines work , let's talk about some common myths that a lot of players believe that simply are not true .
The first one which we are definitely guilty of is ladder betting .
A lot of people believe that if you just change your bet levels while you're gambling , it's going to increase your chances of winning .
That is a myth .
It's not true .
The slot machine does not care which bet level you're betting on .
That does not change your , changing your bat level to a lower bat is actually hurting your chances because if you hit a bonus now you're on a lower bat level .
So always be at the highest bat level that you can on the denomination you're comfortable with .
Let's talk about a common myth that people get really frustrated with .
You played out your money , you lost , you walk away from the machine , someone else sits down , bam , they hit a bonus and you're thinking that was supposed to be my win .
No , it doesn't work that way .
As soon as you got up and walked away .
The random number generator started thinking and thinking and someone else sits down , that was their win .
That win was not just sitting there waiting for you .
That is not how slot machines work .
So don't feel like you got up too early .
It just doesn't work that way .
Common misconception .
You cannot stop the real .
The second you hit the button the first time your fate was decided , hitting it again is just stopping the screen , but you're not changing your odds of the win .
The machine already thought out what you were going to be winning .
So hitting the button super fast is just killing your bankroll .
Remember , timing is everything on these slot machines .
So don't be the button slapper person .
You guys please use your players cards .
One of the common myths I see perpetuated all the time is that using your players card is going to make you lose money that's illegal .
And casinos cannot do that .
Gambling is more regulated than alcohol and tobacco put together .
So I promise you they're not scamming you out of your money .
Honestly , by not using your players card , you're just losing out on comps .
The casino is rewarding you for showing how much you're playing .
You might be wondering why they're doing that if they're not tracking you or trying to like make you lose .
And it has everything to do with data .
The most valuable commodity to businesses is data .
They live off it they want to know where you're playing , where you're eating , where you're staying .
So by using your players card , they're rewarding you with comps .
I may have lost a lot of money on slots , but I have earned thousands of dollars in comps from casinos for playing .
So don't leave that money on the table .
Use your players cards .
We always do unless of course , Mr Ruby forgets to bring in .
So I made a comment that I never win on free play .
And a lot of you guys commented , it counts the same as regular money .
You can totally win .
No , that's a myth .
It does not count like real money .
Remember I told you that the slot machine is doing an accounting record of money in money out , but when you use free play , it's not counting that towards its record .
So technically , you're kind of in a limbo , you can still win .
It's a random number generated , but the odds are against you .
So now that we know all these myths , it may seem like there's really nothing you can do to increase your odds and it's all luck , but there is one guaranteed way to improve your odds on a slot machine .
And that is playing at a higher denomination by raising from a penny slot , which has the worst odds up to a five or a 10 cent .
You're going to increase your odds of winning and even better .
You can still be the same amount of money .
But at a higher , if you're playing a penny slot at 250 go up to the five cent and play at 50 cents , 50 cents times 5 , 250 .
I guarantee your odds of winning will improve .
Now that you know the secret , that higher denomination equals more money .
That explains why all these slot play youtubers are betting such crazy amounts at such high denominations .
If you're betting like $1000 a spin , your payback percentage can be as high as 98 percent pay back .
But you don't have to be like a high roller to play like a high roller .
Check out the high limit slots area .
Sometimes they have a minimum of a $5 bet and your odds can increase in there because the denominations are higher .
So I have a few tips for you guys on finding a good machine and the first one is going to be , don't fall for things like this .
There are three different dancing and drums machines here and they all have different levels of coin pot .
You may think that having this full coin pot means it's going to hit sooner wrong .
It's just a graphic .
It doesn't mean anything .
They close randomly .
So don't fall for stuff like that machines do that all the time to try to draw you in , but it's random .
It doesn't mean anything for someone who is a new player .
My suggestion is definitely look for machines that are considered low volatility .
These mean that they're going to pay you back more often , even though the wins aren't going to be as great .
Generally , I would say to try to avoid the high volatility machines , unless you have a really big bank role .
Examples can be like huff and Puff Wheel of Fortune Buffalo .
Sometimes you're going to notice that slot play channels do like these games , but they have a high bank role .
And so it's high risk , higher reward .
A lot of slot players swear by playing the old school machines .
These are the three real machines .
There's no big bonus features , no bells and whistles , just lots more chances for you to win your money back .
Good examples would be top dollar pinball , double diamond , triple lucky seven s triple stars .
People consider these to be more low volatility and really good ones to start .
Another one you guys should try out would be a major must hit , buy machine .
So these are machines that after a certain amount of money has gone in , it has to hit if it's looking like it's really close play that one and it could be your chance to get a major jackpot .
A great example of this is Thunder Cash and a lot of people swear by that machine .
So I've mentioned this before on my channel , but commercially licensed slot machines are less likely to pay out because they do have to pay royalties .
They're really fun to play though .
Another great machine to check out is cash burst .
Basically , little bubbles of money are going to pop up on the screen .
And if they're down at the bottom , you have a lot of chances to win them .
If you hit the cash first symbol , sometimes people leave behind really big ones like 100 bucks .
So you can try to play after them and see if you'll win it .
Cash machines are not the only way people leave money behind .
A lot of slot machines have compounding wilds .
This means that the Wilds build up at the top of the board and then they can all come down at once and you can win really big .
We were just playing a machine recently and we had a big bonus and we were ready to cash out , but we still had a ton of wilds left on the board .
So we had to keep playing to make sure we used up all the wilds .
Be very careful that you don't leave those behind .
Let me give you guys just a little bit more gambling advice .
If you're taking a long trip to Vegas and you're going to gamble , set the amount that you are going to gamble every single day and stick to that budget , maybe put the money in separate envelopes , play down what you decided the bank role was and then stop also never play on your winnings heard .
So many people tell me that they were up like 809 100 bucks , but then they gambled it all away again .
Don't do that .
Save your winnings .
Set those aside so that you go home with some of your wins .
That way you're never leaving down , they even make gamblers safe for people that cannot be trusted with their own winnings where you can't even unlock it until you get home .
Ultimately , you guys gambling is supposed to be fun .
It's entertainment .
We break almost all of these rules that I shared with you guys .
We're betting penny lots .
We play licensed games sometimes because we're just trying to have a good time .
I look at it like this .
I don't go to a concert and spend money on it and then expect to get anything back but a good time .
And I look at gambling a lot like the same way .
I just want to have fun and maybe I'll hit a huge jackpot .
But if not , I want to enjoy myself .
I hope you guys enjoyed this video , found it helpful and fun .
And I hope to catch you guys all in my next one .
