Luckiest time of day to gamble?

I am a slot player and I find that playing early in the morning is the worst time to gamble. After many attempts of trying to win something in the morning I finally gave up and now will gamble starting in the afternoon.

Also, some people believe that machines that are not being played won't hit as often as busy machines.

I also heard there is a new beaver machine at the Luxor!

By definition luck is random and unpredictable. By all means stick with your superstitions, habits and beliefs but it really doesn't make any difference. You can't make luck happen at will.

I can assure you that a machine not being played won't hit. :o)

I have thought the same as the OP even though my greatest HP ($5,000) was at 7:30 - 8:00 in the morning. Last Friday morning (before 9 AM) at the Flamingo, I put $20 into a machine and walked away with $500. Still, I can't shake the feeling that the morning is a cold time to play.

Here we go again!! Oh, I bet that beaver one at the Luxor is lucky any time of the day or night. One loose slot there. Hopefully Breeze will update us.

It is really a matter of preference rather than a lucky time. I play throughout the day, but I prefer to do most of my gambling at night. Sure I win more at night- but that is because I play more at night (and some days I lose more at night). I know the time (or the machine) I play has nothing to do with my winning or losing.

I like early AM casino time. DW still asleep, grab a cup of coffee and I am set. By the time I go back up, she is ready for the day. I am on the it's all random team. Now if I could just find a Beaver of Fortune machine.
