The Best Time to go to Casinos to Win on Slot Machines
What time of day should you go to the casinos to increase your odds of winning on slot machines? Tips are here!

by Paul Ace Diamond "Huggy" Blow






People often ask if there is an ideal time of day to go to the casinos in order to increase your chances of winning on the slot machines. Is there indeed a time when the games pay out more? Is there an ideal day of the week to go, or even ideal months of the year in which the slot machines pay out best? Here I will divulge what I have come to know about when is the best time to hit the casinos in order to increase the chances of winning on the slot machine games.

Personally -- with my years of experience playing slot machines at many different casinos -- I have come to find that there is indeed an ideal time of day in which to visit the casinos in order to increase the chances of winning on the games. My favorite strategy for winning on casino slot machines is to hop around on the slot games looking for the machine that is "hot" -- that is, the machine that is in the "win" cycle and is paying out. The way to find such a game is to move around from game to game until you find such a machine, and if you visit a casino during the busiest hours, this will be hard to do since most of the games will be occupied by other players. Thus, the best time to go to the casinos in order to move around freely from machine to machine is after 2 AM, since the crowds will be much smaller and more games will be unoccupied. I have found this to be true at most all casinos I have visited. I have had my best luck on slot machines between the hours of 2 AM and 4 AM. On the flip side, I have had my worst luck at casinos when I go week days in the early morning hours (7-10 AM).

As far as which day of the week is the best day to visit a casino, I personally have had my best luck on the slot machines on Saturday night after 2 AM (which technically would be Sunday morning.) It is almost as if the games suck in the money from the big Saturday night crowds, and start paying it back out in the wee hours after the crowds have left. I have also tried hitting the casinos on week nights after 2 AM, but Saturday nights seem to be better as far as getting big wins and large payouts.

As far as which months of the year are the best for winning on casino slot machines, I have consistently had my best luck during the summer months -- June, July, and August. It seems almost every year I will have winning streaks of 8-12 nights (one night a week on average) during these summer months in which I will come out ahead each visit. My winning streaks usually end sometime in September. On the flip side, I have had my worst losing streaks in November and December -- it is almost as if the casinos tighten up the payouts at the end of the year. I cannot say that for sure, of course, but that has been my experience through the years so I try to avoid going during the stingy Winter months.
