Slot machines are big business. The slot machines make up a large portion of the casino’s profit. So how can you make a profit from the slot machines? This article will show you how to make the smartest play before facing the one-armed bandits.

It doesn’t matter which denomination of slot machine, from penny and nickel slots to high-roller machines, every player must complete one thing before they can insert their money. This action has many benefits, no matter how casual you may be. First, it will take you only a few minutes.

This is when you join the players or slot club at the casino where you are playing. They will be called different things at different casinos, but they will often have the same theme as the casino. It is very easy to use the slot club. After completing the application, you’ll be issued a card. It is approximately the same size as a credit or debit card. Next, you will see a slot on the machine to insert your club card. If you are moving from one machine to another, the casino will electronically track your spending on that machine and any other machines.

You might now be wondering, “Why would you want to do this?” This question has a simple answer.

Comps. Comps are everything.

“Comp” stands for complimentary, and it can mean exactly what you think it should. You will get freebies from the casino if you wager certain amounts on the slot machines (and other games). They can be in many forms. For example, you might be able to build up credit that you can use at the slots whenever you want. Again, this is free money to gamble with.

You might also get complimentary tickets to a restaurant or buffet at the casino. You might be eligible for a discount on your hotel room or even free nights if the casino you’re playing is a hotel. You might be eligible for airfare or shuttle service if you are a high-roller.

What is the best thing about all of this? There are two of the best parts. First, you don’t need to be a high roller to enjoy the benefits of the club. When we first arrived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, my wife and I had never played more than penny slots. We still received monthly mails from the casino letting us know that we had money to play with. Although it wasn’t much money to play at this level, $5 is still better than $0.

Another plus is that these clubs are generally free to join. You simply need to go to the counter of the player’s club at the casino, give information (usually your address), and provide a photo ID. Your PIN can be set up right away, and you will have your card in no time. You can then start earning the free stuff. You will need to decide if it is worth your time.

Before you play at a casino new to you, check the window for the player’s club and slot club. You won’t regret it, and you will reap the benefits. Start making money!
