The third installment in our four part series on playing Texas Hold'em slot machines, this time we will tackle the most popular variation of the game. There is a reason why this slot machine variation is so popular. The odds are in your favor. It is more likely than not that you will beat the house when playing this variation. You are probably thinking, with the odds being in your favor, how can I possibly win? The first thing you must realize is that you should always play these Texas Hold'em slot machines in multiples of ten. Why? Because by default, the house has to pay out three quarters of one dollar for each machine. Playing ten machines in multiples of ten pays out a total of nine dollars on the house, leaving you with three quarters of one dollar to play with. Playing a machine with the odds in your favor is like getting a free meal at a restaurant. No one is going to stand in line to get it, but the price is right and the odds are greatly stacked against you. That does not mean you should not take advantage of this option. In fact, the more you play, the better you will do and the more likely you are to walk away with the jackpot. When you ante the machine, pay no more than two or three coins. If you ante more than that, you are simply paying the high premium to play that machine. Do not play the machine with the odds in your favor when you are only paying the small premium. If you are smart, you will not pay anything more than the minimum and walk away with your prize. You should know that there are times when a machine will pay more than nine dollars when you bet a dollar and try to win. If you have been playing these machines for a while, you have an idea of what the odds are. When you play these machines at a certain time, they are not likely to pay out much more than nine dollars. If you are wise, you will wait until after the odds are adjusted so you can still play the machine and you may walk away with two or three dollars from your bet. When you are playing a machine with the odds adjusted, there are other things to consider. Is it likely to pay out two or three dollars? If so, then the odds are heavily stacked against you. The chances of a payout are based on several factors including the reels, the position of the slot machine, and the amount of you are betting. If you are only betting one dollar, chances are the slot machine will not pay out much. When the odds are heavily stacked against you, the only thing you can do is to learn how to get the best payouts. This involves watching where the lines are positioned on the slot machine so that you know where to place your bet. If you know the machines location in the casino, this will help you to determine which machine has the better chance of paying out a lot more than the other machines. You will also want to make sure you watch closely to see if the ball stops in front of the machine as this indicates there is a payout. Knowing how much to bet can greatly increase your payouts. Many people don't realize how much money they can actually win. In addition to the location of the machine, you should also pay attention to the other players at the table. The odds are slightly in the favor of the players at the table who have the highest stake. Playing with the odds in your favor will help you to have a better chance at getting a pay out. You will want to place a lot of your bet money on the high-value slot machines, and less on machines that pay out small payouts.
