Introduction to New-to-You Casinos
We’re all adding to what we know about slots by learning from other slots players. I know I am. And you are, if only from me now through my published content. So, let’s get even more deliberate about doing so at new-to-you casinos.
Keep Reading … or Watch Instead!
Have you ever gone to a casino and seen other slots enthusiasts who are winning? What a fantastic resource they are! But why?
Because you can learn from them. What else should we do? Alternatively, we could also learn how to win at slots from scratch or, of course, do what we always do.
Let’s say you’ve read, watched, and listened to all my free content and perhaps even taken my online course, 30 Days to Plays Slots Smarter and Win. And now you want to go to new-to-you casinos and win at playing slot machines. Under this scenario, you have three possible approaches:
- Forget everything you know from your own experiences at other casinos and start from scratch with my strategies. I don’t recommend this approach unless absolute necessary.
- Stick with your methods gained and refined at other casinos and hope they also work at this new casino. The operative word here is “hope.” Good luck.
- Look around for winning slots players and learn from them. I recommend this approach even if it’s not a new-to-you casino.
Maybe you’re traveling for business or visiting distant family. Perhaps you’re on vacation or just passing through. Why you’re at a new-to-you casino hardly matters.
But for whatever reason you’re away from home, you want to win at slots because you’re a slots enthusiast. As I have gone on about elsewhere, hopefully you’ve done your pre-work by assessing the casino beforehand. Or maybe that doesn’t matter because you’ve got one choice of casino and, you know what, you’re going no matter what.
Besides my nine strategies to help you get started, there’s a shortcut you can use instead. A great shortcut is valuable, right? Especially when you’re someplace new, aren’t in the area for more than a few days or maybe a whole lot less, and you don’t have much time to waste.
As a quick aside, ask yourself: Do you do this a lot? Do you often visit new-to-you casinos? Because if you do, I recommend that you figure out how to get good at it.
I have. So, take it from me, it’s possible, especially if your goal is to make a living at playing slots. If it is, this skill is something you’ll want to develop to perfection.
Using My Strategies from Scratch
Let’s say that you’re new to slots or you’ve only ever lost so, either way, you need help winning. And my strategies are what you need to get started. Yes, to get started (or restarted) from scratch.
I start from scratch every time I visit a new-to-me casino, either to meet with a fan or to provide a review. This year I’ve mostly gone monthly so far, but I plan to make visiting a new-to-me casino a weekly occurrence. I’ve already done it enough to know which strategies are possible to check over, say, a three-hour visit before heading home.
The first strategy I check is my 5-spin method. Besides being a quick way to win, if this casino is set up to offer it, starting here helps me acclimate to the casino’s environment. While I’m busy running the 5-spin test procedure and evaluating whether it exists here, I’m also calibrating my ears and eyes.
Is this casino’s environment busy? Is it loud? Whatever it is when I first arrive, I have no idea because I’ve never been to this casino before.
But the sooner I know what regular sounds and looks like, the sooner I’ll spot when it stops being normal. That’s how I prepare to use my strategy 8 later during my visit.
After I finish the 5-spin test procedure, I choose from several possible next steps. If the 5-spin method both works and is profitable, remember it’s only available at 1-in-4 casinos, I’ll note that for my casino review. But YOU might stop learning right there and just making money with a 5-spin winning slots strategy for the rest of your trip.
After all, why would you need or want two ways to win at a casino? My casino review needs every possible way to win at slots there to cover all the possibilities, but not you. You’ve found your success.
But what if the 5-spin method doesn’t work or isn’t profitable? Well, my eyes and ears are still busy calibrating, seeking to understand what normal sights and sounds are so I can see and hear a difference if it happens. To encourage that, I now walk the casino.
This is where practice helps. Once your walked throughout a few casinos, you’ll start seeing what I see. Maybe you already do.
Where are the busy intersections, and how are slot machines arranged there? Where do people gather, and what slot machines are facing these groups so they can see any wins? Be sure to look for highly visible slot machines when standing fifteen feet in front of the high-limit slots room entrance to look in, then do the same thing after turning around and looking out onto the casino floor.
And that’s how you use my Strategy 9: Location, Location, Location to find candidate winning slot machines. It’s how you find perhaps as many as a dozen candidate winning slot machines out of thousands. By now, half of my three-hour visit so over, I’ve applied my strategies as best I can without staying overnight at the casino hotel, so now it’s time to play those candidate slot machines.
And that’s how I learn how to win from scratch at a new-to-me casino. It takes practice to do this smoothly without missing any winning opportunities. But that’s how I do it, with some success.
Using What You Already Know
The second approach for a new-to-you casino is whatever you usually do at your favorite casino. Here, you’re making an interesting decision. You’re using what you already know and, hopefully, know well.
Maybe it’ll work. Perhaps it won’t. But one thing is for sure: You’ll be doing what you’re already best at, are most comfortable doing, even if you learned it somewhere else.
Yes, there’s a risk your approach won’t work. But I like this approach because you’re taking what you know and applying it in an unfamiliar casino environment. There’s no doubt you’ll learn something useful, something you’ll want to try upon your return to your home casino.
At your home casino, you’re well practiced at knowing likely outcomes of your slots play. At a new-to-you casino, you’ll find yourself feeling better in several ways because you’ve been removed from the activities and environments that you associate with stress and anxiety.
You know what I mean, right? We experience this positive change whenever we vacation somewhere. We go someplace else just to be ourselves and get benefits like these:
- Improved mood and reduced stress
- To get a better outlook on life
- Find more motivation to achieve goals
- Feel more present and stimulated
If you win at slots using your usual methods, so much the better. But even if you don’t, you’ll go home with a fresh perspective on those methods. And that’s how you re-energize your slots gambling performance at your home casino while visiting new-to-you casinos.
A Wonderful Resource!
The third way to learn to win at a casino is to meet with, chat with, and get to know its long-term slots enthusiasts. Whether it’s a new-to-you casino or your favorite casino at home, winning slots players are beautiful resources. But the question is: Are they indeed winning?
Be careful assuming they’re accomplishing anything useful to your gambling goals. I’ve met plenty of slots enthusiasts that have an expensive hobby. They come to me for paid consultations not because it bothers them that they’re spending a lot of money because they don’t mind the cost, but rather because constantly losing leaves them feeling unhappy.
But they are a resource. We should all try to learn from those doing well at slots because it’s a shortcut. That is, only if they genuinely are winning rather than engaging in an expensive habit.
Under these extraordinary circumstances, where others are available and worth learning from, my strategies and methods will help you identify why they win. They’ll clue you in on what’s going on even when they don’t know for sure themselves why they’re winning. And you can perhaps improve on their results.
Improve on the results of other winning slots enthusiasts? Certainly! Pardon me for being too audacious, but you can’t be better than someone else if you’re only following them.
Being better than others at slots gambling is your goal, right? So, figure out what they are doing first, then improve upon it. That’s where true success is found.
Of course, improving your own slots play has an expected consequence. You become that excellent resource for other players. Isn’t it interesting how that happens?
Other slots enthusiasts will see you winning long-term and want to know how you do it. If explaining your winning slots strategies isn’t for you, go ahead and mention me, and I’ll be pleased to take that bothersome burden off your plate.
