Beat the Slot Machine

Mar 16, 2008
Various systems have been devised to try to beat the slot machine. One such method is the "Put and Take System."

The "Put and Take System." Here, the player simply puts in a specified amount and takes what he can get. It is a controlled form of play that promises a good return if the player happens to get in on a good run, as it gives him a definite stopping point.

The player starts with, say, 20 coins ($1 in nickels if playing that type of machine) and simply runs them right through, pausing to let the machine deliver after any hit, but giving no attention to what comes out - if anything! - until he has completed his first run through.

Having made his "put," he then counts his "take." If he has made money, he puts away the profit. Suppose, for example, he was lucky enough to hit Plums for 14, along with a 5 and two 3's. That gives him 25 coins, so his profit is 5 coins, or 25c in terms of nickels.

Now the player puts his original 20 coins right back through hoping to take more profits which he can add to the first gain. But what if his 20 coins come out short, as they most often do?

In that case, he keeps on putting the remainder through. His 20 coins may be whittled down to 10, 5, or even 3, but still a big hit like the Bells (for 18 coins) will put him right back in the running, with maybe a few extra coins for his own private Jackpot.

Never, at any time, does the player use any of his profit. He simply risks his original investment, granting the machine a take of 20 coins and hoping that his own take will more than balance it.

Three things can happen: (1) Either the player will lose his risk money by going short on the first run through and failing to regain his original mark on further plays; (2) He will come out with less than he started, the coins he managed to put away while running through his original quota; (3) He will show an actual profit, if he managed to build up more than his original 20 coins before losing them.

Examples: (1) Player puts 20, takes 15; Puts 15, takes 5; Puts 5, takes 13; Puts 13, takes 3; Puts 3, takes 0.

(2) Player puts 20, takes 16; Puts 16, takes 24, keeps 4; Puts 20, takes 28, keeps 8; Puts 20, takes 8; Puts 8, takes 0. Original 20; kept 12. Lost 8.
(3) Player puts 20, takes 32, keeps 12; Puts 20, takes 17;

Puts 17, takes 30, keeps 10; Puts 20, takes 24, keeps 4; Puts 20, takes 8; Puts 8, takes 12; Puts 12, takes 0. Original 20; kept 26. Gained 6.

Variations of "Put and Take"

There is a modifications of this system: it is to risk the profit instead of the original amount. If the player starts with 20 and comes out with 28, he keeps the 20 and plays the 8. Should he build the 8 to 12, he would keep the 8 and play the 4. That is, the moment he gets ahead he uses the machine's money, not his own. So he can't lose.

The question is: Can he win? Not very much if he only has a few coins to run through each time, as they can be so easily wiped out. If he puts in 12 and comes out with 13, he would only have 1 to play; while if he put 12 and took 11, he could run the whole lot through.

Once the risk fund is gone, it is unwise to repeat the Put and Take system with the same machine on the same occasion. That is, the player should return to the machine only after someone else has played it. He can, of course, try the Put and Take with another machine if one happens to be available.

Good luck with these attempts to beat the slot machine!
