    Do you cringe

    So Saturday night,My only night off After going out to eat for a delicious steak dinner. I decided to make a road trip & the casino I went has one Mr Woo slot machine, So it is being played And the couple playing it ,Was only betting 1 Penny. I was cringing so much. They had over 40 dollars in the machine . So they could have at least bet the minimum. I went and played some other games . Finally got to play Mr Woo . And got the Major back to back. First amount was $212 and second was $200. Oh and I saw the couple on some other machines and they were either betting 5 cents or just a penny.

    I see this all the time when I play the original Buffalo. People are betting 1, 2 or 10 cents. When a bonus occurs they get several retriggers, hoot and holler and end up winning 15 cents. I bet 2.00 or 4.00 and when I manage to get a bonus, there are no retriggers and I wind up winning 8.00. So I sometimes think the 1 cent bettor is smarter than me, but I get no pleasure from winning 15 cents. I understand that everyone has a right to bet the way they want but at least cover all the pay lines.

    I'm noticing that alot of casinos are getting rid of the machines you can play less lines on. My local has a real problem with people hogging 3-4 machines playing 1-10 cents. Probably because they get bused over and try to stretch their money as long as possible. I love playing the original aristocrat games and its a pain in the ass finding them now. They are either gone or taken up by 1-5 cent betters

    I remember in a long ago post, I noted that I don't play all the reels on original buffalo (it's also the only version I play)..I usually do 3 reels times 4 which is 40 cents. You'd be amazed at how many good hits I've had on the game.. Def more than the misses ivehad from not playing 5 reels. everyone has a right to play the amount they wish but even I don't understand the one cent way😀

    Twina1970,
    i agree with you. It is hard for me to play minimum on most machines. The only machines I will play minimum are the machines that you can win the jackpot on any bet. A lot of machines I play have a minimum of .50 cents.
    Good thread.

    I will many times on the REEL SLOTS ( any three matching symbols anywhere on reels 1,2, and 3) bet three columns times max bet. On Buffalo it is $1.00 a spin. Pretty amazing wins when you hit!!! I do this often on all those old Reel Slots machines. When folks play such a small amount, there are usually a reason.... they not gamblers and are just wasting time waiting for their spouses, or they have lost all their money and need to wait for someone, or they are there for other reasons ( in my local it is peddling drugs or prostitution, or 18 year olds just hanging out smoking and raising eyebrows...) I know how frustrating it is to watch someone play a machine betting so little when you would like to play the machine. Now, I just tell myself that the timing is not right and to come back later.

    I like to bet ruby slippers in nickle denomination at 15 lines and have had good luck on it. Some time I will even do a 5 line bet and up the bet to 15 or 20 cents a line. Unfortunately there are very few machines left with this option.
