  • Depend on what machine you pick to play. I have won $500 on a $5 machine. I only put a $20 in and hit it a couple of times. It all about luck I say.

  • I wouldn't think it was a sure thing. Casinos are a lot like the lottery, you're GAMBLING

  • You can if you are lucky. You can also lose it all in 2 minutes.

  • You CAN but that definitely doesn't mean you will. I've gone to a casino exactly 3 times in my life. Each time with $20 in my pocket. I won $65 once, broke even once (meaning I played for about an hour & walked out with $20), & lost it all once. If you are looking to play longer, find a nickel or penny slot machine. If you are hoping for that big hit, find a progressive dollar machine. Video poker is also popular b/c you choose which cards you want to keep so some people feel it gives them a bit more control over the game. But like kustomkrochet said, it is GAMBLING so make of that what you will.
