Choosing a Slot Machine
by Jason Green of

Years ago choosing a slot machine was very easy. Basically, there were not many options from which to choose from. But, nowadays this is not the case with the many options that you have. You will see so many slot machines these days at casinos that it is difficult to choose the right slot machine. The main question is, when choosing a slot machine where do you want to sit down and play? If you do not know the answer to this question it will take you a long time to choose the machine to play at.

The first thing you have to determine when choosing a slot machine to play at is how much money do you want to spend. Do you want to play for nickels or play for 1$ each spin? No matter how much money you want to drop on each spin there will be a slot machine that will fit your spending wants. Both Vegas and Online Casinos each have highroller slots as well.

Once you have figured out how much money you want to spend, you then have to choose the machine. Simply knowing that you want to play on penny slots will not make things any easier. It will cut the options that you have, but there are still going to be many slot machines to choose from in the casino. When you get to this point you have to consider a couple of things:


– What slot machine is going to give you the most enjoyment? This is pretty difficult to answer before you begin to play. However, you should take a look at the options available to you so you can get a better idea. You may find out that there are slot machines that are simply more fun to play. More paylines, a better theme, bonuses, etc. will all need to be factored in.

– For the amount of money that you will be wagering, what slot machines are paying out a lot? You have to remember that each and every slot machine will give you a wide range of payouts. Many players want to wager as little as possible for the chance to win as much as possible. Look around the casino and try to find slot machines that will give you the chance to make the most money, which will be based on how much money is in your gambling budget.

It is also a good idea before you sit down to play that you read the slot schedule on the slot machine. This is usually posted in the front of the slot machine. The information on the slot schedule will tell you the denominational amounts and the win amounts that are possible on that specific slot machine. Many payout amounts differ, so be sure to read them and make sure youre not shorting yourself thinking that your playing for the potential to get rich when the machines payout may be lesser than you had anticipated.

In summary, choosing a slot machine to play at can and should take a lot of time to figure out. After all, youre spending your hard earned cash and you want to have the optimal gambling experience, so its highly recommended that you know the particulars before you start slamming in the dollars. This goes for both brick and mortar casinos as well as online.
