Calling all slot machine players (Video Poker, Slots, Keno, etc.), this week's Reader Poll asks the simple question . . . If you walk up to a bank of five or seven slot machines, how do you select which machine to play? Do you always select an end seat, middle, any open seat, or what seat is preferred and why? What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

PLEASE NOTE: The following text entries are the words of our readers
and may not be full sentences, correct grammar or correct spelling.

Reader Poll Replies:

I select an end seat every time. And if one is not open, then I will search for another bank of machines until I get an end. Seems to work for me. Steven B  NYNY

Seems like I always select the loosing machine, regardless of where I sit. Since I do not smoke, I guess subconsciously I select seats closer to the end so I will not be stuck between heavy rude smokers. Betty Fuller Ohio

I typically will pick an end seat because that limits how many smokers can sit next to me. If it's a machine I really want to play I will sit at any open seat. Pam Williams Lawrence, KS

My preference would be to sit the the first chair next to the end of the row of machines. I have found those to be very lucky for me over the past 10 years. Ken B. Phx AZ

I am a smoker so it really depends on other players as well. I also tend to shy away from other people so if there are 4 chairs and someone is on one end i tend to sit on the other end. Beth Reinert  Hortonville, WI

I try to pick a bank of machines with a lot of players. That tells me that the machines must be paying or there would not be anybody there. Then I play the first open seat. Jan Dunham  Burbank SD

Any seat unless its next to a smoker or someone who is over flowing into the nearby area. Dee Alpine,Ca

it seems that one in a row will just 'call to me'. Usually takes my coin without even a little love tho. LV 3/28, 5 days. Lee Morelli Middletown Springs, VT

i like to sit on the end if it is open so i don't have to squeeze in between people. tina thompson las vegas, NV

If I have my choice of machines I always take the end machine closest to the front of the casino. I am a firm believer, that they put the machines with the best odds in that position. If they were all filled but one I would probably go on to another block of machines. My 2nd choice would be the opposite end and side of the previous choice. I always select the end seats on table games as well. Larry Foley  Rio Rancho, NM

I always select the end seat. People are always walking by just for a couple pulls. It gets yoy closer to winning the jackpot in my eyes. Good luck!   Stephanie  Bend, Oregon

Well, being the "gentleman" that I am, I allow my Wife to select a machine first. Then, I take the machine directly to her right. So, the decision is usually out of my hands. Yes, dear...........Steven Tillinger  Cleveland, OH

I always select an end seat, because I can get up and down without disturbing other people's experience. I'm taller too, so when I have had to sit in a middle section it makes the other person's view behind me poor. Kelly Wolfe   Battle Creek, MI

I always play on the end machine. Have been doing this for at least 15 years and have had more luck on end machines then in the middle.. Just think about a end machine might hit people walking down main walk way get excited and start to play money for the casino.  J McElyea  Fabens, Tx

I always select an end seat so I don't run the risk of having two strangers sitting next to me. Kraig Koep  Plymouth, MN

My wife seems to have a sixth sense on what machine to play. She literally touches the machine and seems to "feel" it. I haven't got a clue about how she does it, but I do know I've been to Vegas 8 times, and come home a winner 7 of those times. She's really good at the new penny jackpot machines. She picked 9 straight winners last time out. Mike Gustafson  Columbus, Ohio
