There is "luck" and there is "calculated luck". The person who walks into a casino and sits at the first machine available and wins big on the first pull is extremely lucky indeed. It happens. I've seen it happen. But, it doesn't happen very often.
First, you need to go with a substantial "stake". By substantial I mean at least $300 – the more the better.
Second, you have to know the machines. If you don't know them then ask around. Most people are friendly enough to share the information. Third, you have to be patient. It takes time to prime the machine. Fourth, stay away from the penny and nickel machines. They rarely win and each spin costs a lot of pennies. Better to go to a quarter machine and start with one credit. Fifth, choose a machine of multiple denominations and start with the least amount to prime the machine. Play .25 on one credit at least thirty spins. Then play .25 on two credits for thirty spins. Then .25 on three credits for thirty spins. You will win some along the way. Just keep counting to thirty before you switch the credit. The only time you should switch credits before the thirty spins is if you win "double, double" anything or "triple, triple" anything or any combination of double/triple. If this happens switch to a different credit. Rarely does a machine "hit" more than once on the same credit. If you happen to hit a good jackpot – either a "printed ticket" payout or an "attendent pay" payout switch machines almost immediatly. Only twice in all of my hours in casinos have I seen a machine hit a jackpot twice in a row.
