Yes, there are true stories, even documented Guinness record about the people who won life-changing amounts of money by playing casino games, but let’s be real: these examples are rare, you always have bigger chance to lose your money than to win some and all casinos have the odds in their favor. This is how all games of luck are set and this is how casinos and the whole industry of gambling make money. Not saying there are no chances and you will certainly lose everything you deposit, just hold your horses when placing bets.
Slot machines or “pokies” as nicknamed in Australia, are one of the most popular games of luck of all time. They are quite simple and easy to understand, thus attractive to millions of gamers. Now when the internet online casinos are taking over the industry of land-based casinos and provide players with wide collections of casino games just few clicks away, online pokies have never been easier to play and more attractive. It’s true that there are higher amount of money at stake when playing online, but is the competition. Knowing this, most of the players come up with questions and dilemmas n whether there is some strategy; specific moves or bets they should pull in order to increase their chances of winning.
The truth is that there is no secret way or tricks that can make the odds in your favor. Poker machines have no memory or emotions, so all those convictions that your odds are better if you stick longer with the same online pokies machine, bet higher amounts of money, wait for the “hot” or “lucky” circle of the machine or anything similar to that, are just wrong believes.
A common belief that you should keep playing, even when you are constantly loosing, because the win must be coming and you deserve it after all the loses, or because particular poker machine hasn’t payed out for quite some time, are just two more misconceptions. Also, there is no such a thing like lucky poker machine and brand new machines give you the same odds as the old ones. Poker machines are based on completely random choosing of combinations and every new spin is separate event. Outcomes of previous spins have no influence on new rounds.

Poker machines, land-based or online pokies, are designed to entertain you, not to make you rich. Play pokies for fun and if it happens that you win some, it will come as pleasant surprise. Don’t play out of need for money. Always set your time and budget limits before starting a game, so the casino atmosphere doesn’t gets you carried away.
