Penny Slot Games That Make Cents
The introduction of the Penny Slot Machines has been the hottest trend in the gaming industry. A penny is the lowest denomination of money in the US. There is hardly a product that you buy for a penny anymore. To some a penny does not have much value, as we have gotten used to hearing about big sums of money. Casinos and slot makers have discovered how valuable pennies can really be. Pennies really equal profits.
The new slots machines today have multiple lines that accept many coins per line. More lines have been added by the slot makers over the last few years. The number of coins used in each line have also increased. More new coinless machines are being used now with bill acceptor and ticket out payoffs.
The need for a hopper filled with actual coins will soon be gone. Over the years as the popularity of nickel games increased, the slot makers wanted to add more coins per spin. It became unpopular for an average player to play maximum coins because it is becoming too expensive for them. So the denomination was droped down to a penny.
Compared to the old 3 coin dollar machine, the cost of playing maximum coins per spin has far exceeded the new penny slot machines. Some slot machines have a maximum bet of 1,600 coins which is 16 dollars per spin. Some average games would take 10 dollars per spin, which have up to 20 lines and cost 50 coins per line.
A penny version of the popular Megabucks game was introduced by the International Game Technology or the IGT. If you look closely you must be playing the maximum three coins per spin which is $3 on a standard dollar Megabucks machine. You need a maximum of 300 coins per spin to play the progressive jackpot on the penny Megabucks game.
When playing slot machines you should be careful. Read the rules on the screen to find out how many coins are needed to have a bet on all the lines. You might be in for an unpleasant surprise if you just automatically hit the spin button. Pick just 2 or 3 on each line just to start with. Carefully decide how many coins you want to bet per spin.
Go back to a single coin per line if you are losing and increase the number of coins if you are getting ahead.
You should know that even a penny has value. You can still win or lose big money on these penny slots.
