What Kind of Slot Player Are You?
What type of Slot Player Are You?
When playing Slots, it all goes down to how much risk we could handle and how much time we had(have). Having said this (that), we can divide slot players into three general groups based on their tolerance for risk.
These are only general groupings and many of you (not necessary) will likely fall into a cross section of two groups
Aggressive Player: If you are not afraid of a chance at a big jackpot you could be considered an aggressive player; the one who likes the action and doesn’t mind putting it all on the line for a chance to grab the brass ring even if it means finishing a session without a balance.
Average Player: You don’t mind risking your money but you also don’t want to go broke. You would be very happy with a medium sized jackpot that would pay for your playing time and give you a little extra. If so you can consider yourself an (you are an) average player who is looking for entertainment as well as a chance to win some money.
Conservative Player: Maybe you are just happy playing the games and if you break even for the day you felt you have won because of the enjoyment you received while playing. You want to get as much playing time as possible for your money. If so you can consider yourself (you are) a conservative player.
Choosing a Game
Once you have an idea about what type of player you are, you can determine the type and denomination of slots you want to play (suitable for you).
Agressive Players may want to choose the progressive slot machines. While the chances of hitting a life changing jackpot are slim (a bit harsh, try to soften it – we want them to play J ) you are not afraid to put it on the line. If you don’t want to play the progressive machines you may be equally comfortable playing the higher denomination dollar machines seeking a jackpot worth thousands of dollars.
Average Players will usually be most comfortable playing the quarter slots. If you want to stretch your money you can look for a machine with a high hit frequency. (Machines with a higher hit frequency pay out small wins frequently while machines with a higher hit frequency usually pay out larger wins less frequently.) If you are looking for a larger jackpot you can choose one that has more payouts on the upper end of the pay table.
Conservative Players will probably get the most enjoyment (have most fun) playing a nickel machine with a high hit frequency such as the new video slots. If you pick a machine with the fewest number of lines and play a single coin on each line you can really stretch your playing time. You can also play a single coin is (in) a straight multiplier quarter machine. (There is no added jackpot for playing maximum coin. This machine does not penalize you for not playing maximum coins.) You most likely won’t win a large amount but you will be able to play for quite some time on a small investment (and still have a great time).
We all have our own playing styles and you should choose the one that you are most comfortable with. It is all a matter of personal choice and what give you the most pleasure when you spin the reels!
