LUCK CONSIDERATIONS for SLOT PLAYERS
Slot machines have pay cycles and then go DORMANT.
A very potent combination is a lucky period and
a machine in a pay cycle. During a dormant period on the machine, a luck period
may "blip". For instance, I play the 1 cent, 2 cent and 5 cent machines and you
pretty much need to get into the bonus to make money. If I'm on a "dead
machine" during a Lucky Period, I may notice a "blip"-i.e., I might get 5
eights in a row. A nice hit, but not enough to take me to the next bonus round.
You ideally, want to hit a VERY nice bonus during a good lucky period. Lest you think your Luck
is stronger than a dead machine-this is NOT true. And I have found this
the hard way (many times)!
Everything has a luck chart (not just you). The casino, the machine you're on, the
person next to you, etc. For whatever reason, your luck cannot
operate freely. I have what I call the $50 rule. I NEVER put more than
$50 in a machine ever. The WORST losses I've ever had have been on dead
machines. The machine hadn't been to the bonus for 3 hours and I kept feeding
it and feeding it thinking it HAS to go soon, right? Well, it never hit. I left
feeling very, very stupid. After talking to other casino patrons, they say they
been conned into putting an insane amount of money into one machine. And the more
money you've fed it? The harder it is to leave it! Remember
that casinos probably have panels of psychologists setting these up to keep us
there! Don't fall for it!
Avoid pitfalls by following the rules below:
- NEVER Put more than a set amount into a machine. For me that's $50. And that amount will vary depending upon how
much you like to bet. Sometimes they're just not on...I've seen a machine stay "off" all day long! Do you want to be
the one feeding the dead machine all day long?
- NEVER waste more than 1 or 2 Lucky Periods on a dead machine
- MOVE ON AFTER A GOOD HIT! Yeah, sometimes they
keep hitting, but very, very rarely. Most of the time, they just eat it right
back! If you want, give a small amount back, say around 20 spins or less. In general,
you MUST move around. Consider how DIFFICULT this can be on a busy
Friday/Saturday night! In general, you want to avoid casinos during high
traffic periods as you will be forced to stay on a dead machine or move to yet
another dead machine...
- AVOID Dead Machines! Easy to say, but how
do I know what machine is dead and how do I find a good one? Below are some
indications you're on a DEAD MACHINE:
- You are the only player
on the bank. Odds are the bank isn't paying. Banks seem to "light up" in unison
and then go cold. LEAVE THE BANK (not just that machine). Look for a bank with
lots of people playing.
- Everyone around you says
that machine has been dead all day. Now that MAY mean it's about to pop and I
do try those, but NEVER WASTE MORE THAN 1 LUCKY PERIOD on a machine and keep to
the $50 Rule. If it's dead, move on.
- Tip the waitress to find
out what machines consistently pay. For instance, in Washington State, casinos
are required to return 70% of the money back to slot players-for a 30%
take (pretty hard to make $, huh?). Keep in mind that's 70% is for the entire
casino. So some machines may pay 10% back on average and others may pay
140%. A $5.00 tip to the waitress is money well spent
- AVOID Special Drawing Days
or Promo Days It's been our experience that on days when they have drawings
for some large amount of money, they usually turn down the machines. The
casino is terribly crowded, so you can't move-even if your machine is dead.
Consider that very, very few persons will win in the drawing-but the casino
rakes in huge amounts of money by getting a lot of people there and in
general, turning down the machines!
you've hit the BIG one, you MUST be willing to walk away or at least drastically
lower your bet. This can be very difficult psychologically as we typically feel
happy, confident and sure it'll keep hitting. If your transits don't
support staying after the BIG one, resist the urge to up your bet (and
put it all back)! Remove yourself from the casino! Most persons lose because of
this one factor, so master it! Take your friend/spouse and have them DRAG you
out of the Casino/Sportsbook, if necessary! Go to the hotel room, eat dinner,
take a walk. Bring a good book you can read in your car until your next Lucky
- Some Lucky Hits will NOT
be detected. Why? We use 3 of the major Astrological predictive techniques
(Solar Arc, Progressions, Transits), but we do not use some of the
lesser known, such as Converse, Precessed, Sideral, Parallels of Declination, Solar
and Lunar Returns, etc. And in truth, we are students of Luck and probably
don't know everything (yet). Our algorithms continue to be examined and
improved and our database of Lucky Transits continues to grow. In our
experience, in 5 days of using the Luck Charts: 2 days you might find the
Charts hit pretty much down to the minutes. The next 2 days might be pretty
much on and the final day may be completely off. Nothing fires. On average, it
seems about 75% of Lucky Transits hit at least somewhat. On average, during our
testing period, 0-2 nice hits per day are NOT detected by the Charts. And
consider this! You'll still make $, even if you're not betting much. Contrast
that with a Lucky Period that doesn't hit and you've upped your bet? You're out
a lot of moola. So we tried to err on the side of showing you luck only when
- There are persons who
are known by the rather unattractive name of "psychic vampires". If you notice
that during YOUR lucky time, the person next to you is winning like crazy (and
you're not), you may have one next to you. It's not a conscious thing on their
part (so don't get mad). Kirilean Photography which displays auras, shows that
sometimes persons can start sucking the energy from you (i.e., the light starts
to bleed into their auras). This is not as uncommon as you think-and another
good time to MOVE ON. You'll find these people will literally follow you
around, too. Just politely keep moving on. Being "bled" that way is actually
common with persons who have strong Pisces somewhere in their Chart.
- Try wearing Turquoise (the REAL thing only and yes, it's quite expensive).
Turquoise is considered Lucky by many different cultures and does seem to help.
Dyed or enhanced stones are thought to lose their power. Most genuine Turquoise
has been mined out in the US so if you're not paying a lot, it's probably dyed
Howlite, or some substitute.
