Video slots are games of chance. No matter what skills you have, you can’t make a slot machine pay out — that is unless you plan on using a plasma cutter to open the machine. Even then, the plasma cutter wouldn’t help you online. There are, however, some techniques that people use to win more frequently at video slots. Try these 3 strategies to see if they work for you.

#1: The Cain Method

The Cain Method uses a simple strategy to help you win more at video slots: the more a slot machine pays you, the more you pay it. The less it pays, the less you pay.
You also need to choose a specific amount of money that you want to win. If you start playing with $20, you might choose to win $10. Setting this number tells you when to back away from a machine. If you spend $30 on one machine, then it’s time to start the method over. The method also says that once you make $10, you should take your money and head to a new machine.

People who use this method usually prefer video slots that accept low bets but let you play with up to 20 lines. This should give you a greater chance of winning without forcing you to spend a lot of money.

#2: Choose a Progressive Jackpot for More Money

Video slot machines typically come in two varieties. Progressive slots have jackpots that grow as people play them. The more people play, the larger the jackpot grows until someone wins it. Fixed slots only pay out specific amounts of money. For instance, you might win $5 for lining up five cherries. Every time you get that line, you get the same amount of money. It never changes.

People who want huge payouts should concentrate on progressive jackpot slots. Look for a slot machine with a big jackpot. Your chance of winning at that video slot is just as good as winning at one with a lower jackpot, so you might as well concentrate on the option that could pay you the most money.

#3: Pay More to Win More

If you just want to pass some time, then there’s nothing wrong with sitting down at the penny slots. If you want to make a lot of money, you should head to a slot machine that accepts bigger bets.
There are potentially two reasons to head to a machine that accepts more money:
Some people think that low-denomination video slots pay out less often. While it’s uncertain if that is true or not, it’s a common belief that’s worth mentioning.

Others choose high-denomination video slots because it gives them a chance to make more money in less time. Assuming that the odds are about the same, why wouldn’t you play a slot machine that pays more money? If you win, it’s more profitable and exciting!

Do you enjoy playing video slots online and at casinos? What strategies have you tried to win more often? Have any of them seemed to work?
