These machines can be the most
rewarding if you are prepared to give them ago. This free sample has been on
this page for over a year now and has won players hundreds to thousands of
pounds. Like all the methods in the Club Machine Guide this technique is very
simple and can be very profitable.
The way to play these machines is as
- First you need to establish if the machine is worth
playing. Check the value of the cashpots. The main pot should be on £200
or £250 (the maximum) and the reserve should be more than £100 to
be on the safe side. The machine should not have paid out a large win recently.
Try putting in a couple of pound to see if the the money is falling into the
cashbox or into the tubes hopper. If nearly full then it is ok as long as the
club/casino has not done a refill recently.
- Your objective is to get the cashpot for maximum
profit. This is done by forcing the machine to play better and better by
refusing to collect any wins it offers you. This is called making the machine
'happy'. A good sign is a four-of-a-kind win when the machine is very happy.
DO NOT PLAY THE FEATURE GAME. If the feature rolls in just collect a
small win immediately. GAMBLE ALL WINS ON THE HI-LO UNTIL THEY LOSE OR YOU
REACH THE JACKPOT (You will not get afterplay from the jackpot, only the
cashpot). The only fruits you hold are the CASHPOTS (on or above the
winline). You should also hold them when they are within 2 and 3 nudges of the
winline as it is often possible to get the cashpot when the machine offers
nudges, then holds and then offers more nudges again.
- Eventually the cashpot WILL nudge in and you should be
showing some profit at this stage. The next step is to recover most of your
stake money back. Most people do not realise that the cashpot is completely
FREE - it does not make the machine play badly after paying it out. This is
because it is built up over a longer period of time than a jackpot and is
considered a 'bonus' win by BFM machines - it is PAID FOR. So having got the
cashpot you can now win a fair proportion of your original stake by playing the
machine like everyone else on the feature game.
- A simple scenario would be: A £250 pot costs you
£180 to get. You will probably get about £100 in afterplay
(sometimes called afterbirth!) and your total profit is about £170.
Remember this: If you do win a cashpot cheaply then you will get less
afterplay, this is because the machine was not as happy when it paid the
cashpot (the cashpot is a free win so it doesn't have to be paid out when the
machine is jackpot happy). Most machines do not have to take lots of money
before paying the cashpot.
- THE BOTTOM LINE is this. If you want to play this
machine you must have plenty of funds. You play it positively. If you decide
the cashpot is not going to pay out either stop very early or don't play it. A
machine which does not have cashpots ready is for divs - the guys that want to
win a fiver. If you want to make money from this machine you must be prepared
to stake high for a bigger return.
- Incidently, if you do get a gamble past the £50
to £75, carry on because it will go to the jackpot. The block on the
gamble is at £50 (on later £250 machines the block is at £75
but it makes no difference as you will be gambling all or nothing anyway). If
you still want to pursue the cashpot then try and lose the gamble.
- Here is an additional tip for these machines which can
be handy. After nudging three of a kind onto the winline, but without a win,
there is a 'stop' button which you can press if lit. It will spin in the
three-of-a-kind win. On some fruits there are numbers which enable you to get
the feature trail. You can hold these fruits and press the 'start' button
instead and you will get more numbers. It is possible to get into the
millionaires row from a 'stop' on the lemons. I have also had the cashot using
this method, by holding the ones I need and getting the fourth to spin above
the line. The machine then gave me the nudges that I needed.
- There are of course, those of you who simply would like
to play these machines for a quick win. The way I do this is not to take the
feature game but to gamble a win up 15 pounds and exchange for Millionaires Row
(or equivalent on other clones). This will often go to at least 30 pounds and
you are guaranteed to keep half your winnings if you force it without
collecting what is offered. You may be surprised because it does go all the way
to the jackpot.
