The ATM MACHINE!! In the front corner! (just kidding of course) There are NO secrets to slots. Totally random. Just have fun and don't spend more than you can afford to lose.

Throw your money up in the air and try to catch it. You have a better chance of recovering it.

There's no secrets EXCEPT some words of advice. If you're going to gamble on the slots, ALWAYS play the maximum amount. I've seen people cheap it and sorry that they did. You would feel terrible if you hit it and only played 1 coin.

We have seen on the first night they pay good. (This is to get the people in to play) Then the last night after 12:00 pm It seems that they pay out better. I wonder if anyone else notice this?

Most people play either the first night and last night. So the perception becomes that more win on those nights.
Contrary to what many think they dont adjust the machines, nor would they need to.

The thing about the slots that I have realized is that these machines are computers. They are programmed to act a certain way, and most of the time you don't win much on them, if anything. Try playing one line for a while, and almost always, a big win will come up on another line. Then switch to playing the max, and no more big wins. It almost always happens, and I think the machine is programmed to recognize when you're playing one line, and then tempt you to increase your bet. I usually play the slots for a little while just for fun, but you probably stand a better chance to win at a table game. They say Vegas odds are a lot better than ship's odds.

BonnieJ is on the right track. The God inside every machine is a Random Number Generator. As it's name suggests, it spits out thousands of random numbers per second. Those numbers correspond to where the reels will land on the face of the machine. The minute you press the "spin" button or pull the lever the RNG stops. Whatever the RNG stops at will determine where the reels will end up. It's more like a computer than a game of chance.

Learn Blackjack basic strategy or stick to the pass/come line at the dice table. Much better odds than the slots.

I can tell you how to lose much more than you had planned to donate. Use your S&S card to play the slots with. It's so easy to just punch a few buttons, and like magic, you have money to play with when you run out. I will NEVER play on my S&S card again!! It'll be cash only for me from now on. I was a very bad girl on my cruise last week. Very bad.

My secret slot playing technique?
I find a nickle macine and put in a $20 bill................That's it!
If I can't win after $20, I won't win after $40 or $60 or more. And with the right nickle slot, I can play for at least 30 minutes if I'm lucky. I won't have won anything, but at least I had fun.

I agree. I have been on a few cruises. I make my money the first night and the last of the cruise. Everything else between I suck terribly.

Every slot pull is an independent event. Just because you have been playing and loosing for a long time, the slot machine is not "due".

I have to agree, in my personal experience, and those of friends we've sailed with, the first night of the cruise, the last night of the cruise, and sea days seem to pay out more. I won $500 on a sea day, my mother won $1500 about 5 minutes later! I won on a .25cent slot, my mom won on a $1 slot.

Always play max. If you don't play max, you can play longer, but you won't win "big", for the most part.

Although, I won $375 on Enchantment on night #3, so who really knows.

I have played slots only a certain machine though. It seems when the ship leaves it pays well, going to the ports etc. After the ship turns for home it seems the machines tighten up for the most part. Just my opinion and I only play one certain machine. Ive paid for two cruises with this as well.
