Scobe's Quick Tips: #59 and #60 (Full Coin, Comps)

17 October 2003

Scobe's Quick Tip #59

Some machines should be played only with full coin and some machines should be played with only one coin.

How do you know which is which and why?

Those machines that have giant jackpots for full coin have very high house edges. The only reason to play them is an attempt to get that jackpot. Thus, full coin is required. Those machines that don't have big jackpots or extra paylines for full coin are best played with one coin.

For more information on slots read Break the One-Armed Bandits! By Frank Scoblete, The Slot Machine Answer Book by John Grochowski, and The Slot Expert's Guide to Playing Slots by John Robison.

Scobe's Quick Tip #60

Casinos like to give away comps for three reasons:

  1. to create loyal customers,
  2. to reward loyal customers, and
  3. to encourage customers to play more.

However, at a certain point "more play" does not get you more comps, since, for example, you can only stay in one free room on one night. Smart players know where the cutoff points are for the level of betting they enjoy and they don't go over it.

For more on comps and how to get them with less risk read Frank Scoblete's Guerrilla Gambling.
