I haven't posted anywhere in ages, and those who recognize me know that I'm a long time card counter / advantage player. In recent years I have increasingly been hearing on the grapevine that more and more bona fide advantage players were focusing on slot machines. ... I finally reached out to a couple of people in the know about a year ago and told them, "hey, I'm behind the curve, I need to know what's going on with the machines." And now I know, and on any given week I play more slot machines than I played in the entirety of my life prior to 2022. ... My experience in 2022 has been that slot machines blow blackjack away, requiring less bankroll and generating more profit per hour. Also, my wife says it's healthier for me, because I have to stay on my feet moving from machine to machine and casino to casino, and not just plop down at a table for a couple hours. ... I don't know if this forum is still alive, and I don't know the proper security etiquette for sharing this slot machine info. I recognize one name in this forum, Mickey Crimm, so I may defer to his advice on sharing here. .... I'm eager to discuss various machines/varieties and tactics. Although there is far less heat than blackjack, I did recently incur my first incident, and it was not a friendly back off. A local casino where I was well known and liked all the way up through the various shift slot managers. And then suddenly I was trespassed unceremoniously, officially for slot machine advantage play. ... I did go back a couple days later on a different shift and ordered down all of my comp/credits at their world famous coffee shop to go.
