The betting and anticipated winning pokies strategies will depend on the type of slot machine. So, when playing on a Mr Bet progressive coin machine, which is a video pokie with jackpots accumulated over a large amount of time, you can play at minimum bets. In this case, there is always a high probability of getting a winning combination with minimal expenses and maximum returns. But, with fixed game machines, this strategy is rare. Here, a game at high bets on a position and involving all the lines is more suitable. In this situation, professionals choose stakes, which they call a "golden mean", i.e., not the highest and not the smallest, after which the spin is played out with maximum multipliers, which increases the chance of getting a good win.
