Shotgun strategy


Shotgun Strategy

The shotgun strategy for 5 coin online casino slots involves playing short sessions on a number of different slot machines.

Getting Ready to Play

As the name suggests, speed is an essential element in this strategy, therefore if playing at a land-based casino, players should choose machines that are of the same variety and in the same vicinity. Quick easy access is a definite plus. In online casino slots, this is easy to achieve.
It does not matter how many machines you choose to play at, but you need to have a total of 15 coins per slots machine. For example, if you choose to play at 10 different machines, you will need to have a total of 150 coins (15 coins per machine x 10 machines). If you are playing at the 25 cents machines, this will be a total bankroll of 150 x $0.25 = $37.50.

Playing Online Casino Slots with the Shotgun Strategy

The 15 coins that are set aside per machine must be inserted into the online slots machine in a very specific order – 1-2-3-4-5. This means that on your first spin, you insert one coin, the second spin two coins, and the third spin three coins and so on.

In this strategy, betting does not depend on the outcome of the spins that have come before. That means that the sequence is stuck to regardless of previous spins. Once you finish your sequence, you move on to the next machine and begin a new sequence from the beginning.

If your spin hits a win, on the next spin you bet with the same number of coins as you bet with for the hit spin. That is, if you bet with 3 coins and the machine hits, on the next spin you will bet with three coins again.

Varying the Strategy

If you have a very small bankroll, you can vary the strategy slightly to suit you better. You can choose to play on fewer online slots machines or to shorten your sequence. In other words, you could choose to play on 10 machines, with a sequence of 1-2-3. Or, you could play on only four machines, but keep your sequence of 1-2-3-4-5.

If you have a large bankroll, you can choose to play on an online slots machine with a higher value. The key is to only play with 15 coins per machine.

Advantages of the Shotgun Strategy

The advantage of this strategy is that if you are playing on a cold machine, the maximum number of coins that you will lose, will be fifteen. However, if you are playing on a hot machine, you can continue to play for as long as you continue to win.

When you are playing online casino slots using the shotgun strategy, you tend to find that you will win smaller amounts, more often. You are unlikely to achieve a big win. It also allows you to play for longer at a larger variety of online slots machines.

Make sure to stick to your naked pull and loss limits in order to help control your game.
