Brian answers your questions
If only you knew the amount of questions I get asked on a daily basis, haha. I've hand selected a few recurring ones below.
Deb Fuller: "How can you identify volatile machines before playing it? Other than better percentage payouts with larger denominations is there a method you use to stay away from machines that just take all your money."
Brian Christopher: Unfortunately there are no signs on machines that tell you if a machine is volatile or not. Best bet is to watch videos online to see how the pays go. It's a good idea to watch videos of people live playing, rather than those who just show their wins, as that won't give you an accurate read. If a machine does have progressives on it, it automatically will become more volatile. Especially the state-wide progressive machines are even harder to win on. And of course Cleopatra, haha. She's just plain ole rude and volatile!
Joe K: "You seem to travel a lot and spend long times alone without Marco by your side. I was wondering as to how you’re both able to cope with the long periods of time away from each other and how he seems to be so cool and supportive while you do this and follow your dreams?"
Brian Christopher: It has been an adjustment being on the road a lot. Luckily we try to keep my travels to two weekends per month. Marco will join on occasion, otherwise we're on our own. He's super supportive of my career and the needs of my fans. If he wasn't on board with everything, I wouldn't keep doing it.
Amelia Rosales: How was Gambling introduced to you?
Brian Christopher: I think I'm one of those anomalies wherein my family never went to the casino. It was kind of within me to always want to go. It started with scratch tickets, then bingo and finally casinos! My dad would go to the race track on occasion with friends, or play poker with them at times - but that was the extent of it and I never saw it.
Bill Flanigin: Double header... "Which machine features you favorite "bonus in a bonus"?" and
"Curious, do people smoke weed IN vegas casinos??"
Brian Christopher: My favorite 'bonus in the bonus' would have to be a toss up between Mighty Cash and all the Link games (Lightning, Dragon, Ultimate Fire). And no, smoking marijuana in casinos is a no-no and you will be kicked out.
Bobby Saumier: You say : its all about timing. How long between pulls or pushes should a player take. If max bet ..."
Brian Christopher: The answer is, it's all about timing haha. If I knew, I'd be playing right now. #LuckOfTiming. More on that under Cynthia's question below.
Janny Marose: "Using player’s card. Use it or not? Seems like I win more when not being tracked??"
Brian Christopher: Always use the card. Always. The card is not synced with what the machine does or does not pay you. Its sole purpose is to track how much money you put in the machine in order to give you points (which in turn gives you comps. The casino hopes that will bring you back to continue to lose more money!). It may 'seem' like you win more with or without your card, but it's 100% not true at all.
Anne Muir: "what movies have you played in?"
Brian Christopher: You can see the complete list on my IMDB. I'm currently ranked 44,078 out of millions of actors!
Leslie Grossman: "Which bonus games where you have to pick 3 matching symbols are pre determined and which are not?"
Brian Christopher: The general rule is if they do NOT show you the other picks after matching three, then it was pre-determined. If they show you what was behind the unselected spots (Pharoahs Fortune, Quick Hit), then it was all up to you. Some states actually do not allow you pick, thus making them all pre-determined.
Jodi Miller-Whitaker: "What are slot tournaments and HOW do they work? (Winning vs losing.) I always hear about them at the casino but never participate because I don't fully know about them."
Brian Christopher: There are two different ways of getting into a slot tournament. You are either invited to join one, or you can pay to be in one. Basically a monkey could participate, haha. Casinos turn slot machines into "Tournament Mode", and you are given a time limit of 2-5 minutes in which you will non-stop hit the spin button. Depending on the game used, the only kind of skill needed is popping items that may come up on screen, which gives you extra points. Otherwise, just hit that spin button as fast as you can and hope that you're lucky to get good line hits. People are paid out for being in the top 100 places, or whatever they decide, with freeplay or cash.
Cynthia Graff: "Let's talk about rapid fire. Do you find it productive to rapid fire bet? Do you hit more jackpots using this method? Do you use it during free game sessions? For instance, using this method to stop a second coin when you see it during Buffo Gold free game sessions."
Brian Christopher: Rapid fire does nothing but speed up the inevitable. The micro-second the SPIN button is pushed, the slot machine already knows the end result. So stopping it when you think you may line it up or get that third coin, does absolutely nothing. The only thing it does is speed up the amount of spins you can do in a short while, and change the outcome of the following spin. Inside the slot machine is a Random Number Generator (RNG) that is always flickering different numbers, say between 1 and a million. We can't see what those numbers are, but each number correlates to a placement of where the reels will land. #39854 could mean you win $5 where #39855 means you win a jackpot, or nothing at all. When you press spin, the RNG stops on a number. Since the RNG is always flickering, if you rapid fire - the next time you press spin would occur at a different time, thus changing what number it stops on and the outcome. Basically if you sneezed, thus making you press the spin button 0.392 seconds later - your outcome would be different than if you didn't. That's why #ItsAllAboutTiming.
Alice Spiekhout: "What exactly is a moderator? You thank them but what are you thanking them for? Can a moderator take out a comment that is negative before we see it when you’re live? How many moderators do you employ?"
Brian Christopher: Moderators are people who 'moderate' the comments during a live stream. Because my channel is based on having a fun, positive and responsible time - my moderators ensure that is how the chat is run as well. If people are rude or 'misbehaving', then my moderators will either remove the comment or the person behind them. My moderators are all Proud Members of the Rudies who have been part of our family for more than a year and are 100% volunteer. I'm always so grateful to them, so let's give them a round of applause: Brian, Lucinda, Carol, Bridget, Joshua, Cameron, Gregory, Kristen and Adam! Our Rudies Members have now surpassed 1500, and are really something special. #RudieLove
