    DO NOT BUY - title misleading

    WOW, this book certainly was not what the title says. It says winning methods, and it doesn't cover that at all. It talks about different types of machines and stuff like that, but NEVER tells you how to win. A better book is called 'The science of winning at slots' by Professor Rudolph Cheong, that book is exactly like the titles states. Don't buy this book, it isn't worth the $$

    Lost of info, But not much help

    I bought his book to get an inside view of how the machines work but it lacks much of the technical data of how they work and how to win. Lots of info on streching your money but not on winning
