When things aren’t quite going your way when playing slot machines its can be quite depressing! Much more so if you wander around a casino gaming floor and spot other players winning huge valued jackpots, and you may often ask yourself what you are doing wrong!
A hand pay if you are blissfully unaware is when you win over a certain amount of cash on any slot machine or gaming machine that is paid out to you by hand by a casinos slot attendant.
If you visit casinos in the USA then any jackpot valued at over $1200 will be paid out to you by a hand pay, and that is always going to be what a slot player will be hoping to achieve on any slots they do decide to play.
There are a few ways that you can increase your chance of winning a hand pay, however always remember that all slot machines you do play are random games of chance, so any spin you play off will give you a chance of winning a jackpot or a high valued winning payout.
All high stake slot players are always going to have a much greater chance of winning a hand pay, as the much higher stake levels they play for will only require payout worth a smaller multiple of their stakes wagered per line to achieve a hand pay than a player playing for much lower stake amounts.
There are some slot machines that do give you a much greater chance of achieving a high winning payout than other slots, and those will be the ones that boast a high variance type of playing structure.
However, there are risks involved when playing high variance slots for the unique way they have been designed is such that you are not going to be spinning in lots of lower to medium valued winning combinations when playing them, but that comprise does mean you do have a chance of winning the much higher payouts possible on such slots.
Also, be on the lookout for any progressive slot machines that have a guaranteed hit by jackpot that is not far of that amount if you are hoping or even dreaming of winning a hand pay.
By wandering around a casinos gaming floor and comparing the current jackpot values of those slots if you do come across such a slot that is not that far off hitting its guaranteed payout amount, then it will be worth playing that slot as that jackpot is going to be won much sooner rather than later than a slot with a much lower jackpot.
Never become obsessed with winning when you are a slot player, for you do need to take the good sessions with the bad sessions!
Always set a budget to play any slot machines or slot games with no matter in which playing environment you choose to play them in, and stick to that bankroll for it is going to be very easy to spend a lot more than you initially intended if you don’t set yourself a slot playing budget!
