Aspects of Slots That Make Them Addictive 1

Posted on March 12, 2020 by Lisa Turnbull

Whether its playing slots at a land based traditional casino or online, slots can become addictive.

They are easy to play and understand, can have easy wins and are extremely popular whereas compared to typical casino games such as Roulette or Poker, which are more complex and require more skill and strategy. 

Online slots at https://www.slotsuk.co.uk/ are also more accessible so are actually much easier to become so addictive. Players can pick up their phone, their laptop or their tablet and happily have a quick spin. Online slots usually also offer higher pay out percentages, a variety of games and higher jackpots whereas land based traditional casinos just cannot compete with. 

The addiction, of course, comes from the opportunity to win. Games with less than ten pay lines are not so popular now in new releases whereas games with as many as twenty pay lines and the new structure of 243 (two hundred and forty three ways to win) make the games more competitive and gives a bigger adrenaline rush. Some games now even offer 1024 (one thousand and twenty four ways to win). In summary three or more symbols appearing in these games is fairly certain to produce a winning combination. 

Hand in hand with multiple pay lines, slot game developers now include bonus features, additional games that players can get too following a win, Wild symbols making a win easier and Scatter symbols also giving huge benefits.  Free spins offer exactly that, the player the opportunity to spin some more without having to invest any money. Auto play also has an addictive feel to it. Newer games sometimes turn things around and rather than the Wild overriding every other symbol except the Scatter they can now move reels, appear at random with no strategy and take the player to a whole new level of additional bonus games.

Posted on November 20, 2019 by Lisa Turnbull

What’s the best way to beat casino slots? Do the most common cheats still work? Can I put in place any particular strategies to win?

In this article, we are going to list you some common cheats that worked in the past (but don’t work anymore!).

Besides this, you’ll find a list of strategies you can make the most of to play at Slotsbaby.com successfully. 

Common cheats ‘to beat’ slot machines 

Since slot machines have invaded the casino industry, astute players have invented many ways to cheat their systems. Some of them worked for a while. Some others were just unsuccessful attempts soon fell into oblivion.

Let’s see the most common cheats used to beat slot machines. 

1. Fake coins 

One of the most common strategies ever existed consists of using fake or shaved money.

Fake coins were pieces of metal which players used to replace normal coins to play without spending any real money. The inventor of this method was called Luis Colavecchio.

Shaved coins instead, were cheated coins that players used for playing at slots. At that time, the mechanism of the machine wasn’t able to recognise the cheat.

Both these tricks don’t work anymore.  

2. The yo-yo method 

A little hole inside the coin was used to tie a lace around it so to be able to get the coin back once inserted.  

3. Bill- validator device 

Using coins is not the only way to play at casino games. You can also use bills and this could be tricked too. You could easily bet 1 USD and make the sensor believe you were betting 100 USD.

      Rocky Colavito

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month was just the fifth player in Major League Baseball history to have 11 straight seasons with 20 or more home runs, yet could not sustain that greatness long enough to earn a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

      In some sense, the legend of Rocco “Rocky” Colavito Jr. began long before he ever started pounding home runs at the major league level.

The major league rule at the time said a player could not sign with a pro team until his high school class graduated, but after sitting out for one year, Colavito was allowed to sign at age 17.
