Looking for Loose Slot Machines

The first thing in the minds of online slot players is how to improve their chances of winning and hitting that elusive jackpot. Finding a loose slot machine among the countless machines in the casino may seem to be an impossible task. Many theories and ideas have cropped up on the subject of loose slot machines, but so far, few players have actually succeeded in finding one. For many of them a loose slot machine is the Holy Grail of gambling.

A loose slot machine is a machine that has a higher payback percentage than the other machines. Payback is the amount in percentage terms that a machine returns to the players. For example, a machine with a 95% payback percentage will return 95% of its earnings to its players.

A machine that is considered loose by one player may be considered as tight by another player. This is the case when a player who gets a 95% payback rate at one casino plays the slots at another casino on a machine with a 90% payback. But this player will consider a machine with a 98% payback rate as a loose one. So a loose slot machine is actually dependent on the biases of every individual and not on set rules or standards.

Various myths and theories abound on the topic of loose slot machines and where you can find them. It is up to the player on whether to believe these myths or not, but it is certain that these myths have yet to be proven. According to these myths, loose slot machines are placed near the entrance, at the end of the row or near the casino cage, and surrounded by tight ones. Once again, these myths are pure speculations and have no actual scientific basis. These myths are based on the idea that casinos are always looking to attract more players and customers, and so are placing loose slot machines in an area that is highly visible and can easily be seen by more people.

When you decide to play the slot machines, always think like you are the owner of the casino. If you are the owner or manager of the casino, would you place the loose slot machines near the entrance, just like in the myths? Of course not. Most players will think that the loose slot machines are near the entrance, so the casino managers try to make sure that tight machines are located in that area instead.

Looking for loose slot machines can be likened to looking for a needle in the middle of haystack. But it doesn't mean that you have to quit searching for loose slot machines. Just enjoy playing slots, and the task of looking for that lucky macine will become a joy, not a drudgery.
