    Don't question Fishhead. His has a 6th sense when it comes to slots. He knows which slot machine and at what time range playing there will be +EV. He polished these techniques through years of dumpster diving.

    staring down losing slot players and fighting off raccoons for your lunch might sound glamorous at first

    but grinding comps and free plays are a way of life and not a choice like being gay

    For the 1959th time, PROFESSIONAL MACHINE players do not play for COMPS.........................geeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeesh.............the COMPS are just a nice added touch................now this is not always the case, every once in awhile will play a game that is essentially breakeven just to garnish what is a decent comp of some sort, but these instances are rare.

    Someone told me Fishhead looks at hit rate frequencies by scouting machines from afar and waitjng for the player to leave the machine and them hops on it? I thought this is the oldest trick in the book? What a sly devil he is.

    with slots 1. quit while ur ahead. 2. when u win big spend it. enjoy it. don't go back to the machines til you've spent. it all. every last penny. gone. then reboot ur bankroll. i understand adding some of ur win to ur bankroll, but a lot of time it is better to take ur win and enjoy it.

    3. limit ur bankroll to that session. don't go over it. bust that roll. bud u done til next time. 4. go with a trusted friend work machines together. discuss and then enforce win and loss limits. 5. play with fish heads peter. for rub off of good luck.


    good luck.

    +1

    I do the same thing if I play slots - but I never take any chances.

    For some reason, all the casinos around Vegas and Henderson keep sending me coupons for free slot play, and it's turning out to be a lot. I go to all the books and slide my card if they do have a point system. The free slot play amounts are getting to a decent size (like $50 in free play or more). I don't how they are cross-rating from the sportsbook to the slots, because the only I play slots is when I have a free play coupon. I get about 5-10 free slot play coupons a week, which is getting to be annoying.

    I take the coupon and I look at every slot machine to see which one has payed-out the most, and then I sit down. I try to play the minimum denomination for the max credits, and sure enough, two pair, 3-of-a-kind, flush .. all these hands hit more often than not. 4-of-a-kinds do hit more than average on a good machine, and when it does I bounce out of there with free money.

    I started doing this when I kept seeing the Filipino women keep hitting 4-Aces at certain video poker machines. I kept watching her and what she did, and she did exactly what I do now. I have ALWAYS seen her cashout a lot.

    I'm not saying you have a +EV on slots, but the free coupons are giving me a head start, and I NEVER put in my own $$.

    I think your right

    Watching machines is the best way, some say Fisher will stand up against a wall for hrs waiting for the right machine with the big jackpots

    Not is correct..........don't really dislike the guy though, he is what he is and in a few instances in the past, owe thanks to the guy.
    Bob is not well liked within the framework of the top 20-30 professional video poker players...............................ye s, see him every week, in fact, we often sit next to each other on a couple semi-lucrative plays at a couple venues each week here in Vegas.

    William Granoff is a scam artist. Anyone who was dumb enough to pay for his classes deserved to lose money. Getting a $3 salt and pepper set for losing 1k isn't winning. Now he is doing them for free? Priceless. Last I heard he was trying to consult casinos into putting the best possible paytables on high denom vp machines and bringing back restricted players with no restrictions.

    FH do you know the casino off strip that has a $5-$25 denom vp machine with a bad chip?

    Nah. The machine has been there for 5 years without being an issue. Bad pay table scares off most.
