1) Q. I have 3 slots questions. Fiirst, If you were me playing slots for the first time, what would you recommend? Second, what are ‘nudge’ slots? And finally, what is a non-progressiveGayle Mitchell is the most recognized female expert of casino gambling and has written extensively and presented seminars about casino gambling since 1996.

A. Your three answers are below.
1. I would start with basic, single payline, two-coin max. slots that pay double/triple for certain combinations, then you can move on to progressives and bonus slots.
2. Nudge slots feature an option where the symbol will 'jump' or can be held for a payback on the next spin. They are fun to play and watch.
3. A non-progressive slot is a version that has a constant top jackpot that never changes, as described in #1—basic, single payline.
2) Q. Are slots programmed to payoff jackpots (or any amount) based on the number of coins played. That is, do they pay off a certain number of times for one coin played, another for two coins played, and another for three coins? I notice that sometimes machines pay when I play two coins, but when I start to play three coins on the same machine it stops paying. I go back to two and it starts to pay again.
I sometimes see a jackpot that was hit on one coin and wonder if it would have hit if more coins had been played. I am a computer programmer (not a slots programmer) and I don't see any reason why slots could not be programmed to hit based on number of coins played.
A. A slot's random number generator is programmed to select certain combinations with a pre-determined payout % as authorized by the casino. The same combination upon spinning will come-up regardless of the number of coins inserted. Playing max. is the only way to get full payment from any winning combination.
3) Q. I noticed many of the slots are now multi-denomination, 25, 50 and 1.00.
My question is, typically a 25-cent machine will have a lower payout percentage than $1.00 machines. With all three denominations available, is the ‘little brain’ inside making that distinguishing change when you play up?
A. Yes, there is a 'little brain' in the multi-denoms for each denomination. Therefore, if you are playing dollars for that particular version, the payouts will be higher.
4) Q. I love slots and this is my new plan. I will only spin 7 times on a machine. If it hasn't paid out, I change slots. I never have much money to play on, so I really want to make my money last and maybe win some! $100 is about what I play at a casino. I tend to stick to the quarter slots, and fool with the 50 cents and dollars occasionally.
If you only had $100, what would your plan be?A.. First, I would choose an online casino that offers the highest payouts as per information posted at the site. Start with the basic, single line slots, then with your profits you can move on to progressives and/or multi-lines.
