Ways to Cheat Slot Machine at Real and Online Casinos

Ways to Cheat Slot
Cheats for slots

There have been cheaters and cheats used by punters across the globe at casinos to beat slot machines. History has many gamers that have been famed because of their cheating hacks. One such popular name is Tommy Glenn Carmichael who was in the slot machine cheating business for over 20 years. He used a tool at the machine which was a  piece of metal that slid into the coin release slot. This triggered unearned payouts in massive amounts but today modern slot machines don’t usually pay out in real coins anyway so Carmichael had to think of something else to cheat but was caught cheating and spent his 5 years in jail.

Online slot machines work on RNG computers making it impossible to cheat the game.  An RNG cycles through thousands of number combinations and stops the moment a player hits the spin button. The results are displayed for the player after the reels stop spinning. RNGs are always tested and certified by third-party agencies to make sure that they are fair and reliable, and that outcomes are not rigged.

Many times in a casino you will hear players say whether certain tables or slots are running hot or cold. However, because slot machines operate on RNGs, no amount of luck or perceived hot or cold streaks will impact the outcome of each spin. Each time a player hits a button to spin the reels or pulls the arm of a machine, the result is a unique event. Slots machines and online slots games are therefore never due to hit regardless of what someone might tell you. Streaks and payouts boil down to a matter of pure chance, even multiple jackpots can occur for a single machine.

The best ways to cheat slot machines be it land casino or online casino.

Know your betting and spending limits

Betting concepts and spending habits are what experts want punters to know. It also claims to help you apply your common sense regarding slot machine decision-making. As slot machines are entirely random so you don’t get to make many decisions at all. You can decide which machine to play if any, and you can decide how much to gamble. But none of that is going to help you become a winner on a consistent basis, because a slot machine is a negative expectation game in which you stand to lose more than the odds of winning suggest.

The casino always pays out your win at less than the odds of winning, which guarantees them a long-term profit. Common sense doesn’t increase your chances of winning. Neither does any combination of betting concepts and spending habits. Thus you need to set a winning goal and a loss limit for each session. While that might be an entertaining way of managing your bankroll, it does nothing for your long-term expectation.

Make use of no-deposit bonus codes

A lot of playing the slots comes down to chance, which is why the best strategies are about seizing whatever opportunities you can to get ahead. Almost all Canadian online casinos offer bonus codes out of which many are no deposits.  You can make use of these bonus codes to enhance your bankroll when you play slots.

Use bonuses with low wagering requirements

One of the best slot machines cheats is to look for bonuses with low wagering requirements and no maximum cash-out limits. Many casinos offer new players large bonuses and do not disclose that you’ll need to bet a huge amount before you can redeem it. But you can read the terms and conditions for each bonus and find wagering requirements of 10x or less. Many Casinos have wagering requirements as high as 50x, which means that on a $100 deposit, you can’t get your money until you’ve made $5,000 in bets! Also, avoid bonuses that come with a maximum cash-out. Find a bonus that doesn’t limit how much you can win from it

Find the loosest online slots at land casinos

At real land casinos if you have been playing a particular slot for a while you should change the machine if you are losing. Slots vary in how easily they payout, and according to industry insiders and leading experts, major gaming centers avoid placing loose slot machines close to each other. The best option when you’re on a losing streak is to move on to an adjacent slot machine or try your hand at a completely new online slots game. Remember, each spin is a completely unique event, so feeding more coins into a losing machine in no way increases your chances of finally winning.

Set an amount to lose

You have read it right. To lose you need to set an amount. Statistically, the longer you play the better the chances are that you will lose your money. If your bankroll is heading towards a slump, be sure to stop once you’ve reached your loss limit. Never chase losses. It is always advised to play responsibly rather than with stupidity to lose.

Find the perfect place to play slots

At land casinos, you need to find a perfect place to play slots.  Slot machines are placed all over the casino floor quite strategically and in a meticulous way. Physical placement revolves around the fact that the casinos want everyone to see a big win. It encourages others to play, so often loose machines are to be found in highly visible areas. It’s far better to wait until you’re actually in the casino.

Thus go for a spot with a wide range of machines so you can move on if you hit a cold streak. For even better chances to find loose slots, look no further than your computer. Online slot machines generally pay out more than slots in real-land casinos. Having a constant stream of players makes it possible for real-money online casinos to offer slots with the best odds yet.

 Play slots with random jackpots

Often players pick the slot machines with jackpots to win. Popular jackpot slots are fixed and progressive. Slots machines with a fixed jackpot will have a maximum payout/jackpot amount that does not change. Whereas for progressive machines the jackpot increases the more people play on them.

A fraction of their bet falls into the jackpot pool, and the jackpot will continue to increase until won. Progressive machines usually come with an indicator that shows the player that the maximum payout can change based on how many people play that particular machine, therefore making the jackpot progressively higher or lower.

As far as playing progressives are concerned there are different views of experts. Some believe that progressives are the only true way to strike it super-rich at the casino; many claims that it’s quite the long shot, even as difficult as winning the lottery. Whatever the case, playing on progressive slot machines are a lot of fun. If you manage your bankroll well and pace yourself, you just might find yourself entering the millionaire’s club.

Use free slots and free spins

Bet to the Max

This is a popular cheat that many slot experts recommend to punters. There is a common misconception that if you do not bet the maximum bet every time you will always lose to the casino in the long haul. However, that’s not quite how it works. This strategy can actually increase the odds for you on some specific machines. Also, it is advised to stay away from the penny and nickel slot machines because the payouts are very poor. Fortunately, this isn’t really an issue for online slots.

All you need to do is to choose whether to bet minimum or maximum coins. You could spend hours wasting away in front of a nickel or penny slot only to find out that the jackpot you hit is not worth the effort. It isn’t half as rewarding as hitting it big on a machine that has higher bet minimums and larger jackpots or prize multipliers. Up the ante and avoid those $0.01-0.05 machines in order to win really big.

Note that the majority of slots’ chances at winning are absolutely the same whether you bet minimum or maximum. The difference is simple: the more you risk, the more you can win on a lucky spin. This is particularly true when it comes to online slots with bonus features and rounds.

All slot machines have a set “volatility.” A high-volatility slot machine doesn’t pay out as many wins, but when it does the wins can be huge. In order to take advantage of the exponential size of the multipliers on these high-volatility games, it can often be a good idea to bet high.

On the other hand, low and medium-volatility slot machines pay out a large amount of smaller wins and a few big ones. These machines are more about slow and steady winning the race, so you won’t feel the need to bet as high as you can to hit that one huge payout.

Study the Pay tables


It is very important to always check on the payout rates of every single slot machine you decide to play and most importantly, you must check on this before choosing a slot machine. Each slot machine has its own set-up with different payouts, and the outcome can really make a difference.

For online slots, the pay tables can be found under the help and rules menu of each game. Pay tables and the number of paylines can vary widely by game, so take the time to do a bit of homework and select the games with the best pay tables, advantageous paylines and most bonus features.

Now use these cheats when playing slot machines at casinos and see the difference it makes on your gameplay.


This is everything there is to know about cheating at a slot machine.
