Ten Real-World Fruit Machine Tips That Still Work Today!
10 – Enjoy Yourself, Keep it Fun
While this tip can be put against all kinds of gambling it is esspecialy true when it comes to fruit machines. Make sure you are not spending more than you can afford to lose and that you are having a lot of fun playing. When the fun stops…STOP! If you do feel it is becoming a problem to seek help or at the very least some guidance.
9 – Wax on Wax Off
If you like your fruit machines on the complicated side make sure you know how to play them. If you are not sure about what certain things mean like when the lights on the machine go red all you have to do is watch another player, or even better ask another player in the local arcade. There is always someone who knows how to play them, its just a matter of getting the right training.
8 – Snipping
While I am not a personal fan of this method it does work more times than not. All you have to do is keep an eye out for someone on a losing streak, wait till they are gone (give it 10-15 minutes) then jump onto that losing machine. More times than not that short break causes the machine to then start paying out.
7 – Percentage Payouts
While putting £10 into an 80% payout fruit machine doesn’t guarantee you £8 back, it does mean it is more likely to payout than let’s say a 60% or a 70%. It might not guarantee you a win playing only the higher payout percentages, but it will increase your odds of a payout overall.
6 – Wedging
Are you in a skill selection and the moving bar is going too fast to get what you want? Take a look at the cancel button as it might be flashing. If you simply hold it down the skill wave bar will slow down making selection of what you want easier. While this doesn’t happen all the time it is worth keeping an eye out for.
5 – Button Tapping
If you have just had a win you want to tap those hold buttons because sometimes it will hold the win, but the lights don’t always flash, or do so after a short delay, so get tapping those holds after every win!
4 – Hold After Nudges
Have you got a hold immediately after doing some nudges? Simply leave it and don’t hold anything and press the spin button! On most machines, a win will roll in automatically, but this will only happen if you had 2 winning fruits on the win line.
3 – Extra Nudges
Has the machine only given you 3 nudges and you need 4 or more to bring in a win? Just nudge 2 winning fruits/bars in and leave the other nudge to the machine. After 20-30 seconds the machine will often bring the win in even though it only had one nudge.
2 – Double Holds
While it doesn’t happen on all fruit machines most of them will bring in a win after the 2 hold. So even if the machine keeps giving you holds its worth doing it time and time again.
1 – Coin Backing
While it won’t guarantee you a win it is still a sign that a fruit machine has not paid out for a while or hasn’t paid out at all that day. When you put a coin in have a listen to where it falls. If its quick to drop it’s staying in the top tubs ready to be paid out, but if it drops into the coin hub in the bottom of the machine it might be worth a play!
