How to Beat Pot O Gold Machines

By Bryan Roberts

"Pot Of Gold" machines are a type of slot machine that pays out based on what combinations of symbols the player can match up. During play, you can take advantage of a specific situation to turn the slot game in your favor. As long as you know when to make your move, this is a simple procedure.

Play the "Pot of Gold" slot game until you hit three like symbols, two above the win line and one below it.

Press and hold the slot machine's "Cancel" button as soon as you see three like symbols in the formation described in Step 1.

Hold the "Cancel" button, and the third like symbol will be nudged up above the win line. What you win depends on the symbols you've matched.
