A Courteous Slot Player Abides by the Casino Etiquette
Playing slot machines can be an anti-social activity in the casino but it still requires good casino etiquette. Behaving correctly will give others the impression that you are a professional slot player.
When you see a coin cup on the machine but no one seems to be around, it means that someone is playing the slot machine but is away for a few minutes. The one playing the machine may have taken a bathroom break or is buying more coins to play or for any other reason. Do not attempt to take over the machine.
For coinless slot machine, players usually leave their personal belongings on the machine such as jacket or towel. As an act of courtesy, you must not leave the slot machine reserved for several minutes. Get back to the machine immediately. You can ask a slot attendant to watch the slot machine for you and you are expected to give some tips after.
Playing multiple slot machines simultaneously is not encouraged whether the casino is crowded or not. You must give other players the chance to play the machines. Other players are also as eager as you are to play the slot machine so you better give up your extra seat.
If ever you have some company with you and they are not playing, don't let them sit on the next slot machine. There are times that some players have forgotten their cards within the slot machine. When you found this out, it is a practice that you must put the card on the top of the machine where the previous player can easily see and get the forgotten card.
Smoking is a big issue of concern when it comes to playing slot machines and is always subject to the casino etiquette and policies. There are casinos that allow smoking in specific areas while other casinos totally prohibit smoking at the slot machines. If you are smoking while playing slots, use an ashtray and blow the cigarette smoke away from other slot players. Your smoking might annoy other people.
Giving tips to slot attendants are always on the discretion of the individual slot players. If ever you have received the service you want, then it is a good habit to tip the slot attendants. When you hit the jackpot prize and the slot attendant brings the prize money to you, it is a must to give some tips to the slot attendant. The amount of the tip is up for you to decide. After all, tipping is not required in slot machines.
Playing in slot machines with correct behavior will give the image to other people that you are a professional player of slots and that's a good self-esteem booster.
