Slot machines in casinos are the top money earner. In the late 90’s the slot machine game builder, IGT came out with a new machine called Ideas. These were simply already everyday common casino slot machines with an added feature, an Tiger711 additional. Most of these came out as a monitor located somewhere in the top section of the equipment. 85 percent of these machines were beatable slot machines. Yes beatable, you can win on video poker machines! How you ask? It was secret that was actually a very simple concept.
A normal slot machine game has a random generator which is activated and prefers the spin the moment your first credit is activated. It’s this that determines what you hit on the pay line and what the machines final rates will be. Traditionally the higher you go in denomination on a position, the better the percentage it is set. So how do you win?
On a Vision machine from IGT the difference is this. The rates on the pay line is less than the usual traditional machine. This is because some of the percentage is added to the bonus on the Ideas. This bonus which is usually found in the video screen can be many different ones. Have you ever seen images of a anime looking cherry quiche in a monitor on top of a cherry quiche slot machine game? Or a picture of a diamond my own that has a little anime looking screen boasting by while you play. These are two of those unfortunate IGT Ideas we are discussing.
There are hundreds of different types of beatable IGT Ideas, the Cherry Quiche and Diamond My own are two of the very most popular machines here. As an example we will type in the information on the Diamond My own. The Diamond My own (like almost all IGT Visions) has a video screen at the very top. There will be 3 articles that hold up to 10 Diamonds each. The traditional version is on a Double Diamond machine. On the reels all is the same except the added diamond. Not the Double Diamond symbols that represent 2 x on the pay line, but actual graphics of a diamond. This diamond does not count for anything on the pay line. It only adds 1, 2, or 3 diamonds (depending if you bet 1, 2, or 3) into the articles above on the video screen when you hit a diamond on the adjacent baitcasting reel.
When you get 10 diamonds in a one column, you get 10 credits. There are simply 2 things to know about a Diamond My own.
1) How many Diamonds must it already have? (How many Diamonds are essential on the machine which causes the area play it with a positive expectation)
2) How many coins do you need to bet each spin. (This depends on the pattern of Diamonds divided in the 3 columns).
The Diamond My own is one of the least volatile beatable video poker machines (bonus comes very fast) of all the Ideas and why it is one of the most popular with ‘Hustlers’ that have a short money. We will provide a link below to a website with the full information.
One last note:
If you happen to played a lot of video poker machines, I bet this happened to you. You noticed it seemed like every time you’re on certain machines, someone was over your shoulder watching you play. If it was a IGT Vision there is a good chance there was indeed! These are the people that knew about this way back when and the same people that eventually caused many to be taken out of casinos. They would tell friends about it until so many people knew about it, they would literally almost break out in a fight when a machine was left with a “Full Bonus”.
Days past are far gone, which is honestly a good thing for someone trying to just rejoice and not blow all of their take advantage the casino. The reason they are gone, is there are Less beatable video poker machines today in casinos so there are less people doing it today.
