For many people playing the pokies is about the winning. Putting the money in is not so satisfying as hearing the money coming out again at the bottom. Some people believe that there is a magic formula or some tricks that you can do in order to increase the chances of you winning. However, there are only a few things that you can do.
Choosing a machine that has better odds of winning a prize should increase your chances of winning something. You will find that the machines have the odds written on them somewhere and so this should help to influence your decision. However, this is not the main thing that will increase your chances of winning. If you pay out more money, then you have a greater chance of winning. So the more times you play the machine, the more likely you are to win a prize.
This makes it sound like you should just put money in the machine continuously and you will eventually win. Firstly, with the pokies, you do have to know what you are doing because you have to make a few choices so you need to know the tactics. Also you will probably find that if you poured money in to the machine, you still might not win and even if you did win, the amount of money that you have put in was greater. You need to remember that the odds are against you and so you should be playing for fun and not playing to win as it is only the casino that really wins at the end of the day.
So there is no magic formula to win. You will win if you put enough money in, know how to play the game and use one with greater odds of winning. However, it is more likely that you will get bored, frustrated and bankrupt before you won the jackpot and so it is not a good idea to try this. Just have fun with it and see any win as a bonus and certainly do not expect to win the jackpot.
