You'd do better putting the money you would have spent on this book into the slot machine.

I've tried many strategies on those and have never come away with anything worth my time.

I came across this book at a yardsale... figures, huh? And that's where these books of this type belong. There are no secrets to winning jackpots on slot machines. If there were, all these so-called "experts" would be spending all their free time earning big bucks there instead of ripping off wannabe-winners by writing these books of fables. I've been playing the slots for 3 years now and have learned a few things not even mentioned in these books. I hold to the belief that every machine has it's own "pattern" that you must learn in order to win. By "pattern", I mean the combinations you play to win. For example, on a triple diamond machine where the max is 50 cents and only 3 wheels, I have found this pattern to work many times: play one bet, then 2 (max), then 1, then 2 (max) for awhile, then hit max several times. I have won many times with this strategy. On a machine called "Butterfly" which has 3 wheels and the max is 75 cents, I have used the following pattern many times to win: hit one bet, then 2 bet, then 3 bet. Repeat a few times, then hit max several times. It's all about figuring out that particular machine's "pattern". I am being totally honest when I say the most I win at any given machine is usually $300. But what I've put into machines before I win finally, I would say about $50. Want more advice?..... Stay away from those progressive machines- only about 1 in 100 will ever win anything, and if they do it is small amounts. Progressive machines were designed to get you excited and worked up into believeing that the amount you see flashing above the machines could actually be yours. I have never had luck with a progressive machine. Another one to avoid are the machines that give you a free 4th wheel that spins when you hit a certain combination.Read more ›

I bought this book because I needed a couple more dollars to get the free shipping on an item. I'm an avid slot player and thought I might get some useful information (and save a couple of dollars on shipping in the process). You can get most of the information in the book from reading the pay table on the slot machines. What you can't get there can be found by searching the internet for slot strategies. This book is all about stretching your bankroll. Common sense should tell you if you want your money to last longer, don't play max bet. Another way to make your money last longer would be to avoid buying this book.

Unfortunely, there had not been any reviews before I bought this book. I would have wanted to know a little more from a former reader. I would say there is more information about slot machines on the book cover than useful information inside of it.

Light reading about slot machines, but the author does not tell any of the secrets promised to be found on this pamphlet.

Of all the books I've read on slot machines, this book is by

far the best. It's easy to read and has no math, history of

slots, or other filler with little or no value. It just tells

you in plain language what you need to know about today's high-

tech computerized slots--how they work, how to play them. If you're a serious slot player, this book is definitely worth

buying.

great book, but I haven't won anything. It is written obviously by a person that knows his business, and I have used some of his ideas. I think it is a good guide.
