Slots and Luck

How many times have you heard the word "luck" being discussed in gambling establishments and in online casinos? It might seem that "luck" has become the buzzword in gambling circles nowadays. You may have heard someone say, "That guy got lucky at the casino," or "I would have won if I were luckier!" And of course, the favorite admonition for many gamblers is the phrase "Good luck!"

Unfortunately, most casino games are not only about luck. Sure, you need some amount of luck in order to win, but that's not the be all and end all of gambling. Luck is only one side of the gambling equation. Ask any successful gambler and he'll surely tell you that skill, strategy, discipline and hard work are far more important than luck.

However, there is one popular game that doesn't require any skill or talent in order to win - the slots. The slot machines are certified moneymakers for both the casino and the gambling patrons, and for good reason. They require very little investment to start playing, they are very easy to play, and they offer life-changing jackpots way beyond the level of games of skill like poker or blackjack. The powerful combination of small bets and huge jackpots is what entices even die-hard gambling patrons to continue playing slots even if they prefer other games.

While most gamblers don't make slots the mainstay of their gambling activities, studies have shown that most gambling patrons play the slots as a diversion or sideline from their main game. Rather than impatiently wait for a vacant seat at the poker tables or for a new blackjack game to start, they spend a few bucks trying their luck at the slot machines. These gamblers don't mind losing a few dollars at slots when they regularly spend hundreds of dollars at the poker and blackjack tables.

Perhaps the best advantage of slots is that it requires no skill or talent to start playing. As long as you know how to insert your money in the coin slot and press the button or pull the lever, you can play slots. Compare this with other games where you have to think very hard and try to outwit your opponents, and you'll realize that slots is the easiest game to play in a casino. Since slot machines require very little money to start playing, even the stingiest gambler out there would be more than willing to play slots. With slots, you lose only a few dollars but the rewards are great - sometimes running into millions of dollars in progressive slot machines.

Despite the popularity of slots, there are a few people who assail its supposed negative effects. These people don't know that slots have more positive effects than bad. Aside from its accessibility and ease of use, the slots give out the most number of prizes, the biggest jackpots and the highest payout rates.
