I love Major Millions. And realistically speaking, there's not really a "strategy" for playing any slot machine game. But there are bankroll strategies that can keep you entertained and still give you an opportunity to win big playing the internet's biggest progressive jackpot game. That's what this page is about.
First of all, you have to understand that progressive jackpots, like lotteries, are longshots of epic proportions. You're not likely to win. Does that mean you shouldn't play though? I don't think it does at all. I think a frugal gambling approach to playing Major Millions would be similar to how a lot of people play the lottery: a little bit at a time, but consistently. Most of the people I know who play the lottery buy a ticket every time. And if the jackpot is higher, they'll buy more tickets. I think this is a good approach, and could easily be applied to our game of choice.
So here's my proposed strategy: I'm going to play Major Millions on a consistent basis. This means I'm going to play it daily, twice a week, weekly, or every payday. Doesn't matter what the timeframe is; all that matters is the consistency of play. But I'm not going to play big sessions, because I don't have a huge bankroll. But I am going to play the max bet every spin, because that's the only way to win the life-changing jackpot.
The next part of the strategy involves how many spins I'm going to take per session. And what I'm going to do is increase the number of spins I make based on the size of the jackpot, the idea being that the higher the jackpot, the better the payout percentage. (Although realistically speaking, I won't see a higher payout percentage because of a bigger jackpot unless I eventually win the jackpot.)
So here's the strategy. I'm going to bet $3 or $6 per session, because I don't have a lot of money. BUT if the jackpot is past a certain amount, I'm going to take additional spins based on the following schedule:
$250,000 - $499,999 - 1 $3 pull per session
$500,000 - $749,999 - 2 $3 pulls per session
$750,000 - $999,999 - 3 $3 pulls per session
$1 million + - 4 $3 pulls per session
I'm not personally going to wager more than $12 per session on a progressive, because like I said, I have a small bankroll. And I'm probably going to be playing daily instead of weekly. If you have a smaller bankroll than I do, you might decide to only play weekly, and that's definitely an okay plan. And if you have a bigger bankroll than I do, you might be playing daily, but you might play more spins than I'm willing to at each level. But I think increasing your bets as the jackpot grows larger is a smart thing to do, just like ranging your bets in blackjack is a smart thing to do when the deck is rich with 10's.
And as always, this strategy assumes you have the money to play with. Don't gamble the rent money away on something like this, and make sure that you're getting some enjoyment out of the process. Otherwise, it's just money wasted.
There are more resources available to the average person than there ever has been in the past. Before the Internet, people had to read newspapers and magazines to keep track of sports teams, players and coaches. Now, with a click of a button, you can stay up to date on how every player, coach and team is doing, no matter where they play.
This information is very helpful when placing sports bets. There is no sense in placing bets without utilizing the power of the Internet. You can look at injury reports, check how players and teams have been playing recently and even look up which team the analysts are siding with. This is valuable information and can help anyone win a greater percentage of their sports bets.
To win bets consistently, it is important to avoid the biggest sports betting mistake people make, betting subjectively. This is most common when people bet for their favorite team to win. This is often a mistake because people are biased towards their favorite team. This bias does not allow them to bet objectively, which hinders their ability to win bets consistently.
Betting on your favorite team can be a great way to win bets and make money. After all, you know this team as well as anyone and you should have a good idea how they will fare in certain games. The problem arises when people think their team might lose and they still bet for them to win. It is kind of like they are rooting extra hard for their team by placing a bet for them to win, even though they know in their heart they will probably lose that day. This is a great way to throw money away and not capitalize on the knowledge you possess.
