Cherry master machines and fruit bonus machines are a line of back room slot machines that are usually played in back room locations. They are a version of a slot machine but not nearly as intricate as a casino style slot machine. To beat cherry masters is as easy as picking the right system for the right machine. Some cherry master machines are not beatable so make sure the machine you find is on the list. I had a friend that did this and can say that I did see this work in person. It was hard to believe but very real.
To figure out the type of cherry machine you are dealing with you need to follow these guidelines. Sit back and watch the screens the game goes through while it is not being played. Determine the company that makes the machine. When the game screen flashes you can see the name in the upper left corner. It is either a "Dyna" or a "Game". These are two separate company's and make most of all cherry masters.
Then watch as the different screens show. The title screen will show the name of the program and sometimes the maker. The game screen will show you what program it uses. You need to look at certain aspects of that screen to determine how to play that particular machine.Also, this screen will usually tell you how high the Cherry and Bell Bonus go. You can usually tell whether or not the cherries go to 12, 9, 6 or 3, and also whether the bells go 7, 3 or 2. The best ones to beat are the ones that cherry's go to 3 and bells go to 2.These will take less time to play and less money to beat.
Now start playing as follow:
Bet one credit and press start. If you do not win, repeat. You want to repeat this until you spin 5 straight times without winning. Once this happens, change your bet to 8 credits and press start. You are looking to see if the program lines up any 3 in a row. It could be organs, plums, and bars, cherries, or bells. It could also give you two 7's any where on the screen. If it gives you any of the winners listed, then the program is beatable. You can now play out the system. But if it fails to do this by giving you a winner of some other type, like one cherry, or lined up two cherries, then you will repeat the system continually until either you have gotten a true winner (lined something up) or until you are reasonably certain that you won't. You may want to play off 4 or 5 dollars worth of credits. If it doesn't give you a true winner and you think that it has a burnt chip, then DO NOT play this machine. It probably has a fail safe added.
To beat cherry masters simply memorize the details and be patient. We will be writing a very interesting article soon on beating slot machines in casinos. These beatable versions were more abundant back in the late 90's, but can still be found at over 70% of casinos.
