Three Great Advantage Slot Machines

20 January 2015

By Frank Scoblete
Last week I gave you three advantage-play slots. These are slots where the player can get an actual edge over the casino when played correctly. You must play these slots exactly as written. I must thank Jerry “Stickman” for the tremendous research he did finding these machines. Sadly, no advantage-play machines are in Atlantic City. But some can be found in casinos around the country in such areas as Nevada, the Midwest and Mississippi.

These articles are excerpted from my book "Slots Conquest: How to Beat the Slot Machines!"

Fishin’ for Cash

How it Works:

“Fishin’ for Cash” works exactly the same as Double Diamond Mine and Triple Diamond Mine (see last week) except fish are used instead of diamonds. There are three columns that hold fish. A fish is added to a column when the corresponding reel contains a fish symbol. When a column is filled you collect the bonus. Once you collect the bonus and the column is emptied, you then re-evaluate whether you have an advantage or not.

What to Look For:

This game is positive when any of the following is true:

• 1 column contains 9 fish
• 2 columns contain 8 fish each
• 3 columns contain 7 fish each

How to Play:

Play 1 credit per spin until you collect the bonus. This amounts to 25¢ a spin for the standard 25¢ machine.

Bankroll Requirements:

Your minimum bankroll must be at least 80 credits. This amounts to $20 for the 25¢ game.

Comments:

This game is not very volatile. Games tend to be fairly short. You will tend to win most games and sometimes for a relatively large amount. Losses tend to be fairly small.


Wild Cherry Bonus Pie

How it Works:

A “Wild Cherry” symbol in one of the nine visible reel positions (3 rows, 3 reels) adds a cherry to the corresponding section of the pie. Each section requires 6 cherries to fill it – 54 cherries to fill the entire pie.

When a section of the pie is already full, the cherries are added to the corresponding section of a “bonus” pie. When the main pie is filled, the player collects a random jackpot (25-250 credits) and a bonus equal to the number of cherries in the bonus pie. The bonus pie then replaces the big pie and the bonus pie is emptied.

What to Look For:

This game is positive when 5 cherries (or fewer than 5 cherries) are needed to complete the entire pie. They could be needed in one to five different sections. It is the total number of cherries needed that is important.

How to Play:

Play 1 credit per spin until you collect the bonus. This amounts to 25¢ a spin for the standard 25¢ machine. If there are two or more cherries required in each of the unfilled sections, play 2 credits per spin as you will get 2 cherries when you land on the needed section. Only bet 2 credits per spin if each of the unfilled sections requires 2 or more cherries to fill them.

Bankroll Requirements:

Your minimum bankroll must be at least 400 credits. This amounts to $100 for the 25¢ game.

Comments:

This game has some volatility. It may take quite some time to fill the pie and collect the bonus. Wins and losses tend to vary considerably. If you follow the rules completely, the game will never be positive after you collect the bonus because at least one section of the new pie will have no cherries in it, therefore requiring six cherries to fill that section. Since the game is not positive until only five cherries are required to fill the pie, do not continue playing this game after collecting the bonus.


Wild Cherry Pie

How it Works:

A “Wild Cherry” symbol in one of the nine visible reel positions (3 rows, 3 reels) adds a cherry to the corresponding section of the pie. Each section requires six cherries to fill it, with 54 cherries to fill the entire pie. When the pie is filled, the player collects a random jackpot. The big pie is then reset.

What to Look For:

This game is positive when 11 cherries (or fewer) are needed to complete the entire pie. They could be needed in from one to nine different sections. It is the total number of cherries needed that is important.

How to Play:

Play 1 credit per spin until you collect the bonus. This amounts to 25¢ a spin for the standard 25¢ machine. If there are two or more cherries required in each of the unfilled sections, play two credits per spin as you will get two cherries when you land on the needed section.

Only bet two credits per spin if all unfilled sections require two or more cherries to fill them. If all unfilled sections of the pie require three or more cherries to be filled, bet three credits per spin.

Bankroll Requirements:

Your minimum bankroll must be at least 400 credits. This amounts to $100 for the 25¢ game.

Comments:

This game has some volatility. It may take quite some time to fill the pie and collect the bonus. Wins and losses tend to vary considerably. Once you collect the bonus the game is no longer positive. Do not continue to play it.
