The Casino Slot Math
For every dollar you bet on a slot machine, you will lose 100% -% payback of that dollar. For example, you are at Bellagio playing the $ 1 Double Diamond slot, bet two credits ($ 2) per spin. According to the chart, for every $ 2 spin you will lose 5.33% of that bet … just under 11 ¢. Granted these 11 cents are not extracted instantly … it’s calculated over time. So, if your bank roll limit is $ 10 you will need, on average 52 rounds before your bankroll is grilled (under $ 1) and you are out of credits.
The book also discusses slot game myths, the role of luck, streaks, slot-shaped game mistakes, betting strategies, how casinos think and how they want you to think, and more!
Do not play another slot machine until you’ve read this book!
