Pokies are an Aussie favourite when it comes to casino games. Why? Well, it is because of the absolutely huge jackpots that they have on offer alongside being one of the easiest games to play. So, this has resulted in copious amounts of people playing pokies, with the aim of winning this incredible jackpot.
Predicting Pokies Jackpots
Unfortunately, there is absolutely no way to predict which machine will win, or when a win will occur. Not even the casino knows this. The reason for this is because all slot machines use what is known as an RNG, a random number generator. This ultimately decides when the reels will stop and it is, as the name states, completely random. It is also important to note that there are no hot or cold machines, each and every spin is unique and does not depend on the previous or next spin. Due to the randomness of these machines, it is possible for you to hit two jackpots in a row off of the same machine, or nothing at all. It is, excuse the pun, a complete gamble. Although there is nothing that you could do to increase your odds, there are ways to manage your money to decrease your losses or increase your winnings. You should make sure that you stop before you go below your bankroll.
Joining a Casino Pokies Club
By joining a pokies club, you could maximise on your gameplay. Most casinos, both online and land-based are likely to give out loyalty points and rewards to Aussie players. Land-based casinos offer things like food, travel, or even entertainment vouchers. Online casinos are more likely to offer free spins, cash bonuses, access to tournaments, etc.
What to look out for
If you gamble on occasion and take a casual perspective toward gambling, be sure to stay away from progressive pokies. Why? Well because progressive pokies do not payout as frequently as a non-progressive jackpot. Only play progressive slots if you are in it for the long haul. Remember, the lower the jackpot, the easier it is to win.
Keeping Your Money
Keep in mind that, although smaller bets get smaller payouts, they are much safer. In order to play longer, play at a machine that accepts a low minimum bet. Another thing to take note of is, pokie machines with multiple paylines will deplete your bankroll quicker than machines with fewer paylines. The reason for this is because, if you bet on all the paylines, you will inevitably bet more.
Most importantly, set a bankroll and stick to it.
