        Hi LCB'ers,

        We all want to pick the winning machine. Sometimes we hear all the talk about the Random Number Generator (RNG) and we feel like when our time comes it comes and there is nothing we can do to help us along the way.

        Percentage Payout

        Many players want to play machines with a high percentage payout. I have been to land casinos and have seen pay percentages as high as 99%. My first impulse has been to run to these machines because i can't lose with that kind of percentage.........wrong!!!

        High percentage payouts on a slot machine really don't mean a thing in the long run. Let's face it, a casino online or land based is out to win. If they really had slots that paid out 99% back to their players they would be broke in no time.

        So what exactly does high percentage payout mean? It basically means that is the percentage a player will back in the long run. Key word "long run". You can sit down at a machine and put in a $20 bill and win $2,000 in a matter of 5 minutes. Slip another $20 bill in another high percentage machine and lose that $2,000 within an hour. Yes in the long run a player will win but how long do you have to play? A player can play for hours on a machine, days on a machine with a high percentage payout and still walk out with empty pockets.

        Slot machine Variance

        If your looking for a slot that is going to give you a better chance of winning, slot variance is the way to go. Slot machine variance basically means the risk over time on a slot machine.

        Low variance slots will give the player longer playing time with lower risk. This might be nice but there is one draw back. The chances of winning big is slim. A high variance slot machine will give a player a better chance of winning big but with less playtime because your taking a bigger risk.

        How to determine the slot variance

        One way to determine a slot machines variance is to play in fun mode first. After playing for 30 minutes or so observe your credits. If your balance is still around the same amount you started with then chances are this is a low variance machine. You probably hit little wins here and there without hitting a big win. If your credits are depleted quickly or you hit a huge win then this would be considered a high variance machine.

        It also important to look at the paytable which is available with any slot you play. What are the win payouts? If 5 scatters pays several hundred more dollars than your bet, this is a pretty good indication that its a high variance machine. If a bonus round has 3 or 4 time multiplier with free spins it too is probably a high variance slot.

        If the payouts don't seem that high than chances are you will win more often because it is a low variance slot.

        It all depends on what your looking for as a player. If you have a small bankroll and want to have more playtime then the only way to go is low variance. If you want to go for the big one and try to land that jackpot......high variance.

        Good luck,

        Lips

          Thanks Lips, I'd like to add some (if you dont mind).
          Because its also useful when playing with a bonus, and need to clear a WR.
          What I found that works best is to start with high variance slots, try to hit big, then grind it out on low(er) variance slots.

          Examples of high variance slots are:

          Rival: Scary Rich 1+2 (VERY high variance)
          RTG: Mystic Dragon, Raindance
          Micro: Break da Bank Again, Deck the Halls

          Low variance:
          Rival: Metal Detector, Bank Heist
          RTG: Honey to the Bee, Ceasars Empire
          Micro: Tomb Raider 1+2, Thunderstruck

          But beware, a low variance slot thats not 'in the mood' to pay can eat you alive too!
          Finding that PAYING slot is most important!!

          also want to add

          Playing with high % of non cashable bonus, bet high amount at the beginning and grind it out later if you hit something big.  For ex, I took 700% at betphoenix and bet $2.50 per spin at first.

          My only word of caution on this is to ck the terms and conditions of bonus. Some bonuses allow only a max bet of a $1.00 per spin for example on limits of max bet.
