How Professor Slots is Taking Casino Players to School
It’s the bells and whistles that get you when trying to win on a slot machine. The noise, the action, the atmosphere, and most certainly the jackpots; they’re all a distraction. Next time you’re in the casino walk, through the slots area. People are locked in, pushing their buttons, tapping their screens, and just hoping to land the big money prize at the end of the rainbow.
Friedl takes his research seriously too. An academic by trade, he calls himself ‘Professor Slots’, an accurate title. He lives and works in Dayton, Ohio, where he is a Ph.D. by day, with a doctorate in aerospace engineering, and a slot machine gambler by night and weekend. He’s an intelligent man, smart enough to know the house (the casino) holds a massive edge in slots, as high as 15% in some brick and mortars (as low as 2% at online casinos). But, he has devised a strategy that turns the tables in his favour. Imagine the undertaking.
Friedl has spent hundreds of hours pacing back and forth down a bank of slot machines. With pen and paper in hand, taking notes, making observations and delving deeper into the subject than any gambler ever has. His time and effort seem to have paid off. He has won more than 100 taxable jackpots, (a prize payout of $1,200 or more), not to mention a brand new, fully-loaded Mercedes Benz E-350 coupe.
Expert in Casino Slots
Enter Professor Slots. Friedl has successfully parlayed his wealth of information on slot machines into a popular blog, podcast and book, Learning to Win, and has close to 14,000 followers on Twitter (@ProfessorSlots). He also has a YouTube channel under development, which he plans to use to further educate his audience. It’s also important to note, he preaches responsible gambling and warns against any get-rich-quick schemes or illusions of hitting a ‘mega’ jackpot.
On his website, professorslots.com, visitors are taught how to take control of their slot machine gambling, to assess casinos for success and to identify and choose winning machines. He offers personal coaching as well and anyone who signs up for his newsletter automatically receives his list of 25 Winning Tips for Slot Players. For instance, should you play a penny slot machine with a 4,000 credit maximum jackpot or a quarter slot machine with a 4,000 credit maximum jackpot?
What Are Your Slots Goals?
Every gambler has different ambitions and aspirations but Professor Slots has taken his desire to win to the next level. And, he has been sure to share what he’s learned along the way with the public. He’s written countless articles on topics ranging from the risk factors players may encounter, to the importance of understanding ‘advantage play’ in modern casinos. He’s also dug into regulatory issues, as well as political and economic factors relating to American tribal casinos, one of the least understood segments of the gaming industry. His 2019 review of Scientific Games Corporation, a world leader in slot machine gaming and casino management software, has been lauded by his followers and pundits alike.
Please keep in mind, Friedl is an educated, experienced and disciplined gambler. Through study and sheer determination, he has managed to compile an impressive catalogue of some 700 winning tips to help overcome the odds. Like, why the time and the day play a key role in choosing a profitable machine and why playing at a newer casino is more beneficial than playing at an older one. He illustrates why it’s an absolute necessity you take the casino up on its ‘Players Club’ rewards program.
Win Big as a VIP
That’s how he won his luxury vehicle.
Does the casino have an advantage in slots? Yes. Are the odds in the house’s favour? Yes, but they vary. Friedl however, believes with hard work and study, the odds can swing to the players side. He’s done his homework. He’s written his thesis too, and it clearly states in the affirmative, that ‘yes’ you can be profitable at slot machine gambling.
After all, he is Professor Slots is.
