Umbrella Strategy for 5-Coin Slot Machines

The Umbrella Strategy is used at the 5-coin slot machines and is a kind of pattern betting system that is based on the amount of coins wagered on every spin. In fact, you will understand that this is the combination of different slots betting systems. As most slots strategies Umbrella Strategy is quite simple to use and can alter depending on the player's requirements and possibilities. It is influenced by such points as the game bankroll, how aggressive the player is, how long he wishes to play, etc. 

How It Works

The main idea of Umbrella strategy is that the player starts the game with low betting amount, then increases it slowly and after reaching the max goes on decreasing it to the lowest amount. This is the so-called"low-hi-low pattern" strategy. For example, according to this strategy the betting pattern can be 1-1-3-3-5-5-4-4-4-2-2 or longer 1-1-1-1-3-3-3-5-5-5-4-4-4-2-2-2-2. Some players use the popular variation of the strategy that states that the player should never wager four coins at the 5-coin slot machine. In such case, the betting pattern may look like 1-1-1-1-2-2-2-2-3-3-3-5-5-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-1. It is worth mentioning that the pattern and thus the pace of increasing or decreasing the betting amount do not depend on the results of each spin at the definite slot machine. And no matter what strategy you use, remember not to go over your bankroll limits.
