machines are the same as playing any computer game
the more you play it the more u learn, after 20 goes you can get to higher levels
after 20 goes on a new machine you've generally done ya balls, but know a lot more than when u started.

tbh most have worked on the same principles forever, and you can figure new machines fairly quickly if you have been playing them a long time

How do you tell when they are ready to drop army? Are you watching other punters feed them ?
Report armagnac July 1, 2015 6:31 PM BST
yes cider, often going against the logic in front of you is how to beat it.
most machines are basic, if you collect a big win like £30, you can expect to put that back in and more before it offers £30 again
so if your after a jackpot, dont collect anything
Report armagnac July 1, 2015 6:33 PM BST
no brushy, there are certain signs
you usually can tell from getting 2/3 boards if there ready
this can cost u upto £20
if there not ready, u lose £20 and move on
sometimes u lose £25 after a drink to find out the machine is no good
thats life

It's not as simple as army makes it sound ;)

Stands to reason if you jump in after someone has dumped a load of cash that there's more chance of spitting. And less likely if someone has just dropped the jackpot. But it's just playing the odds, jackpots can easily follow jackpot and vice versa. Now if you had insider knowledge of the reads, that might be different :p
Report Cider July 1, 2015 6:39 PM BST
I liked the ones with the cash pots and reserve. If you had enough to play with pretty much guaranteed to turn a profit playing the right time.

A question for you army if you don't mind.

Do the fruit machines still have the "hopper" (I think that's what it was called) which stored the £1 coins in? Iirc,when the "hopper" was full,the £1 coin dropped into the bottom collecting tray of the machine,and it was a sign it was ready to pay out.When the "hopper" wasn't full,the coin went into it,so you could tell it wasn't ready to pay out.

So basically,when you put the 1st £1 coin in,you listened to hear if it dropped to the bottom tray,and if so,you carried on playing.

the £1 hopper holds £350 when full, and drops into the bottom when at that point
it dont matter if its full up as all pubs now have refill keys and pretty much fill there machines up most mornings so there always full.
so the edge is gone
back in the old days when they collected once a week and only the collecters filled the machines up, it was a massive edge

But the vast majority of machines, any money put in drops to the cash in box. It has no affect on the payout, urban myth ;)

correct cider, its immaterial if the machine is full or empty.
its memory of what has payed out through the data pack which records everything is all that matters
most collecters these days dont know what there doing anyhow and often leave the machine wrong by not pressing the hopper reset switch after re-floating

Just been given a formal worry in the diary room.

When you entered the specials forum you agreed that you must blindly hate marc from big brother no matter how this detracts from your own judgement in any given situation.As you have consistently intimated that marc may not be evil and there are 2 sides to a lot of the disharmony in the house,we at betfair specials forum feel you have breached these conditions and your actions may have caused distress to the marc haters on the forum. Regrettably betfair has no option but to issue you with a formal warning and to let you know that any further attempt at trying to bring some balance into a debate regarding marc will not be tolerated and will see your removal from the betfair forum.
