Slot Smarts: Winning Strategies At The Slot Machine This book would have received higher “stars”, however, the author is too moralistic in preaching on the perils of slot playing. There is too much information in this book that the average slot player is already aware of. The book was disappointing from this stand point. I did use the author’s spreadsheet to enable better tracking for my future slot sessions. Frankly, the book is overpriced for the knowledge gleaned.

Solid Ideas..Excess Verbage Since the slots make up the majority of opportunity to gamble in Las Vegas…it is a pleasure to see an updated (late 1990’s) but not overly technical guide to what the games are and how to understand the logic behind their operation in order to “win” or at least break even. Though I have not had the full resources to completely test Mr Halcombe’s methods…about 80% of the information he imparts, I have used at one point or another to wind up being considerably ahead at the dollar slots. Some of the text could have been shortened as pertains to the moral or philosophical views of slot play….but overall…an invaluable read if you are going to put even one dollar in the machines.

There is a somewhat easier way! The book is valuable but somewhat impractical at the level of actual play. The author provides five plans with elaborate instructions for leaving and staying and moving from one to two coins — he advocates play on two level multipliers like Double Diamonds and Red White & Blue.In my opinion it is enough to say that if you don’t make 5 units within fifteen spins you should leave. If you don’t score a very good hit you should not move from one to two units. The problem I had with the author’s method was that I mainly had to leave machines. That is normal. But why go through some elaborate recording of this hasty movement, as though each encounter was a session? I appreciate that the author’s methods may work for him. I am not so orderly. I reached his goals quickly enough using my fifteen spin adaptation and common sense on when to double up. I coasted through the rest of the day and came home with a few hundred plus from dollar play. I welcome dialogue about this with the author or any other serious players. It is a good book but … There is an easier way!
