John Lloyd asks, Do casinos make slots machines loose when they first introduce them at their casinos?
This is a topic that I’m asked about a lot, something my buddy Jason often refers to as slot machines being in their ‘honeymoon phase’, where casinos want to hook you in with a NEW game and loosen the slot. Is this true or just a myth?
I find this to be in a very similar category to beliefs that slots are tighter on weekends, holidays or during renovations. It’s very easy to ‘stereotype’ a machine based on the first time you play it, or during a big win or loss. But here are some of the most important lessons to learn…
So no, just because it’s a new machine, doesn’t mean anything. I relate it to a brand-new restaurant opening. Do you think that on opening week they will provide the best service with quality ingredients and give you your full money’s worth….and then by week 6 decide that they will start providing poorer service and lower grade foods in the hopes that you’ll continue to keep coming and paying the same amount? If that were the case, they would go out of business rather quickly. In the same sense, casinos are not going to tighten machines at a later date in the hopes you won’t notice – because we WILL notice and just go to another casino instead. They have a lot on the line too and they have to keep competitive with other casinos – not to mention they have to follow strict laws and guidelines.
I can probably name a dozen brand new slots I lost my butt on and a dozen brand new slots where I won big on from the start. In the end, it’s all about timing, a little bit of luck and lining it up! Here’s an example of when I first played Tarzan and hit a jackpot…and never hit a thing on it again. And another where I created a whole video of myself ALWAYS losing on Wonder 4 and named it the "Worst slot machine to ever to have been made" when it first came out, only to end up falling in love with the game and getting multiple jackpots on it in the future. Find the game that excites you, put in a bill, and try your luck at it. In the words of Forest ‘BC’ Gump, Life is like a slot machine, ‘you never know what you’re gonna get’. More on Wonder 4 style games in a couple weeks…
