    Any slot machine fans here, I live in Salthill so there is about four casinos around here. I tend to play the Hot Scatter a lot, switching to Hot Diamonds occasionally and the Magic Forest game. I would be a low risk bettor, maybe playing the 5 Cent a spin game and if I get a decent few quid will up the bet a bit, maybe 3x7 or 4 x 5 cent to try and trick the random number generator into giving a winning line. Sometimes in Hot Scatter and Magic Forest you get bonus spins (10 for MF and 15 for HS) and if you are in a lucky streak you can get regenerates of the bonus spins which can work out quite well. But then I have a treshhold of how much I spend. Some people who frequent puts stupid money in like fifty Euro notes and playing at a fiver a spin, sometimes they can get a handsome win but most of the time they lose a fortune, where some of them get the cash to play I don't know. Anyone else frequent the casinos playing slots?

    Not a fan of slots sat all, if I'm in a casino the last place you'll find me is at the slots. It depends on the person. Slots to me are not social, I prefer chatting to players at blackjack, rouellette, poker table etc I see slot playing as a bit individual/lonely but that wouod be a pereonal choice. Odds wise they generally offer some of the worst odds on payouts,but that probably differs from game to game.

    I play with a few friends myself so not so much a lonely experience for myself, but I know what you mean for other players.

    Yep im a slots girl. 20c a spin online is my average. Sometimes 40c.

    Friday i accidentally put the bet at 4.00 but won 200 back!

    I prob sound crazy but i switch up my casino apps regularly i feel like they stop paying out if i frequent the same ones regularly
