Legal cheats for Slot Machines
Everyone likes to know a secret, and if you are playing online slots machines and know something that the majority of your fellow players does not know, then this can be a great feeling, more so if it is a secret that helps you win more on slot games!
This fact has been picked up by slot machine manufacturers, who have gone to great lengths to design their slot games with experienced players in mind, as this sort of player is the bread and butter for slot machine operators and they will go to great lengths to keep regular players happy and playing their range of slots for longer.
So with this in mind you will now find, on a range of slot machines, a range of legal cheat or as they are known in slot player circles as hidden features. These have been inserted into the slot machine play cycle by slot game designers to give savvy, experienced players more chance of winning, once they know what to look out for.
Legal cheats for Slot Machines - 3 Hold Rule
One legal cheat for slot machines is the three hold rule, and this is when a player spins in two matching symbols on the reels and then is offered a hold feature on the next game.
A hold simply allows you to select symbols on the reels which you wish to keep in place for the next spin of the reels, you simply need to press the hold button underneath the two symbols you wish to hold then press the start button, the un-held reel will then spin and the aim is to simply spin in the third matching symbol.
The three hold hidden feature will kick in once you have held two matching symbols for three times, what machines will do is to guarantee the third matching symbol will spin in on once you have held both matching symbols three times.
A couple of slot machine manufacturers that have installed this legal cheat in their slot games are Electrocoin and Project coin, however there are several others, so do a little research as this can be a very profitable way to play slots once you are armed with this knowledge.
Legal cheats for Slot Machines - Hold after a Nudge
Another legal cheat for slot machines, and one that isn't fairly well known but can be very lucrative is the hold after a nudge cheat.
Many slot machines allow you to win, at random what is termed a nudge feature. This feature allows players to move reels upwards and/or downwards, one symbol at a time in the hope of the player being able to nudge in a winning combination from an otherwise losing spin.
Often however, the slot player will find they haven't been awarded enough nudges to be able to spin in three matching symbols. So slot machine designers installed the hold after a nudge hidden feature to enable experienced slot players to gain an advantage when they have been given a nudge feature.
How this legal slot machine cheat works is that a player, when faced with the fact that they haven't been given enough nudges to spin in three matching symbols, should then nudge in two matching symbols, and then if, on the next spin, they are offered a hold, they should refuse to hold any symbols.
What will happen next, but only on slots that have been programmed with this hidden feature is that the player will be awarded a three of a kind win, which will be to the value of the two symbols they nudged in, so for example if they nudged in two Bar symbols and then refused the hold offered after the nudge the slot machine will spin in three Bar symbols on the next spin!
Experienced slot players will often walk around slot machines looking out for less experienced slot players who nudge in two matching symbols then stop playing that particular machine, they will then jump on the slot in the hope they are offered a hold, which they will refuse and thus win a guaranteed winning combination on the next spin!
