Want to Do Well Playing Slots? Pace Yourself

You love playing slots right? We all do, or else why else would we be at this site. The key to playing slots, and playing slots well (we all want to win money right?) is pacing.

What do I mean by pacing? I mean, if you are going to play, either in a casino or online, play in small chunks with constant breaks taken in between. The biggest mistake you can make during a session is sitting in your seat for 12 hours straight, mindlessly putting the arm and feeding in your coins. Sooner or later, your body and mind will get tired, and you'll start doing something stupid, such as moving up to a higher limit machine, because you are getting bored and frustrated. This is a great way to lose your money.

You need to say to yourself: "Ok. I am going to play for 3 hours, and regardless of whether or not I am winning, after those three hours I am going to take my dog for a walk for an hour, and then come back and play." Even if you are winning, GO. You need to give your body and your mind breaks in order to stay fresh. A tired body and a tired mind leads to empty pockets.
