In the land of casino games and poker machines, the jesters are often seen as the bad guys. They are the ones who wear white shirts and sandals, they are the ones who raise the 'guests' to do their bidding. However, in a Video slot game, the jesters have special roles. They are there to observe the players, to see if they are winning or not and then they will try to alter the odds to help the player. There are also times when they will be sabotaged by other players, but their main purpose is to observe and disrupt the game. The role of the jester is not to assist the player, but rather to disrupt the game. Their job is to cause confusion and to remove the advantage from the player so that the machine's odds will be misaligned. When this occurs, the jester must stop playing on the machine and will receive a penalty, in most cases a small loss on their wager. There are three basic types of jesters in a Video slot machine game: the Professional Jesters, the Amateur Jesters and the Jailbirds. The professional jester is the one who is actively trying to change the game. They stand by their statement, shaking hands with other players and telling them that they have changed the outcome of the game. They claim that they know which button to press to make the winnings. When the winning amount is made, the jester will be ecstatic and will celebrate until the winnings are realized. The amateur jester is the one who does not have a bigger goal than to have fun and possibly win some money. Often times these are people who play just for the heck of it, or to have a little competition with the friends they often hang out with. Sometimes these people will set aside their own joy for the sake of winning a few dollars, and the jester will eventually lose all of the money they have put into the machine. The Jailbird is the last category of jester. These people are often looking for a real challenge and will spend all of their winnings on one machine. Most times these people will use the machine's odds to try to determine the machine's payline. They will look at the payline to determine whether they are likely to win or not. The key to being a Jailbird when playing a Video slot machine is to set a budget. Set a limit on how much you're willing to spend and stick to it. This way you won't get discouraged if the machine doesn't give you a big win. If you set a limit before you start playing, the jester will be more disciplined and only play the machine when he or she is certain that they have improved the machine's odds of winning. Once the jester has maxed out the machine's odds, they will then stop playing and wait for the next opportunity to play. It's important to remember that even the best performing machines in a casino still have a very small chance of winning. There are many other slot players playing at any given time. For this reason, the jester should play their machine with as much confidence as possible. This is where knowing when to walk away can make all the difference. If the jester knows that they are about to lose too much money on a particular machine that they are playing, they should walk away and wait for another opportunity. Playing the Jailbirds video slot machine can be a great way to win some easy money. However, the jester needs to be disciplined enough to realize when they have improved the odds of winning so that they can still come back and play again. When the jester does win, they should celebrate by popping the winning ticket and eating what they just won. Before the end of the game, everyone should stand up and congratulate the winning jester on becoming the second person to win the jackpot.
