1. The Win Streak Pause
If you happen to be having a particularly lucky day, take advantage of your winning streak. However, the moment that your lucky winning streak is broken off by a sudden loss, it’s a very good idea to take a breather. This is far better than continuing straight away as most players would do, believing their lucky streak isn’t over yet! And while you pause, don’t leave your machine. Once again, this goes especially for those playing online – keep it open! The worst thing you can do in such a situation is shut it off or walk away. All it will take you is a 5-minute break, allowing the ‘brain’ of your chosen slot game to refresh itself. We know it sounds like nothing more than a silly superstition, but it won’t cost you anything to give it a shot!
2. The Double Dip
Next up we have what is fondly known as the double-dip. Most of you are already aware of the fact that you can play several machines in the casinos of Las Vegas. And for those who are total newbies, now you know too! But we wonder how many of you knew that you could do the exact same thing online? And while it’s true that not all casinos give you the option of playing multiple slot machines at the same time, you can still play at two different casinos by using the same Mac or PC. Or, for all of you lovebirds out there, you can even try playing with your significant other. That way, you would be doubling your chances of winning! The possibilities are endless once you use your imagination. We realize this may sound too simple to be of any real use, but the many slot players who’ve already given it a chance, claim it works like a charm!
3. The Jumper of Jackpots
Corky name, but we have saved the best for last! First off, you need to be aware that when it comes to trying your luck on progressive jackpots, your chances of hitting it big are no more or no less than anyone else’s. And this is regardless of just how long you’ve been at it. In a certain way, you could say it’s quite similar to winning the lottery. Even though such a statement may sound a bit depressing. But try to think of it this way: just like it won’t matter if you’ve been playing for hours on end and not hitting the jackpot, likewise, you could be lucky enough to hit it on your very first minute!
Those odds are quite possible, completely unpredictable, and totally random. Wow, we believe we’ve just described gambling in total, rather than just this. But no player leaves it all to Lady Luck and chooses instead to trust in superstitions or special tricks. For instance, there are those players who are stone-hard in their belief that the more constant wins you’ve racked up already, the more your chances of hitting the desired jackpot diminish. According to this logic of theirs, if you seem ‘on fire’ and you’re constantly loading up on prizes, you won’t get at the biggest prize. This means congratulations if you’ve found a hot machine, enjoy your big wins, but give up on the jackpot.
Of course, it’s your choice entirely whether you want to believe in this or not. We’re sure we don’t even need to mention that there is absolutely no scientific proof backing this up. And despite it being thrown into the superstition category, many experienced players swear by it! Such jackpot-enthusiasts have employed what they’ve come to call the “Jackpot Jumper” method. Basically, when you’ve found a hot machine, as hard as it may be, move on and find another one! Sounds crazy? Indeed. It also defies any gambler’s logic. And yet, why not summon the courage to resist temptation by leaving a hot machine and coming back to it in a few minutes? Those who support this method argue that it’s all random either way, so you aren’t really trading in your winning streak for a losing one. If anything, they claim you are trading it for a slightly less successful streak, albeit with a much higher percentage of hitting the jackpot!
