Go to any pub in the UK and you'll hear the familiar sound of coins dropping into a fruit machine. These are the most popular gambling device in the whole country. You'll also find that many veteran players believe that they can tell when a fruit machine jackpot is about to spree. Over the years, they have honed their listening and watching skills to be in tune with the fruit machines. Small, almost insignificant sounds and signals to tell their expert ears and eyes, that the jackpot is near.
Playing the humble slot machine is easy simply because it needs no thought. You pull up a seat at the casino and start pumping in coins and hitting the spin button. Everything is down to pure chance. But with a fruit machine, in spite of being a type of slots machine, there is some small room for skill. That's because of the "hold", "nudge", and "repeat" functions. Using these can help move the reels just that little bit which can make all the difference between a near miss and a win.
