"Hello DiLiGO Slots buddies. Are you one of those players that gets nowhere with their daily allotment of tokens? Are you wondering why certain people are at the top of the leaderboard a lot of the time? Do you want to be up there in the Top 40 every hour you're on, on nearly every machine that you play? Well, I can help you.
There are a few simple tricks that allow people to get better results than others in DiLiGO Slots and I'm going to show you how this occurs.
1. Use your 1,000 tokens wisely. There's no use going to Driving Tinkerbell and playing 75 tokens a turn to try and get a miracle, use the tokens on more affordable machines. On a 15 line machine betting 1 Token per line, this gives you 66 spins (50 x 15 = 990), on a 9 line machine you get 111 spins (111 x 9 = 999), and on a 5 line machine, your 500 tokens equals 200 turns, which allows plenty of opportunities to win!!
2. Spread your tokens around. Using what I have said in Point 1, you can use your 1000 tokens to attempt to reach the Top 80 on multiple machines. For example, you can do 20 spins each on Token Rockets and Ancient Egypt which is 360 tokens, and still have enough for 128 spins on Euro 2008, US Elections 2008 or Buccaneer's Bounty on 1x5. With this method, you can contest for the Top 40 on multiple charts and who knows, you may have a good run of spins on the machines you play and turn your 1000 into 1500, 2000 or more tokens. Take advantage of the trials that DiLiGO offer on certain machines to sample some of the special features on offer with the higher level upgrades.
3. Upgrade your machines. As you build points, you'll find it better to upgrade your machine sooner rather than later to get more points out of your wins, which in turn makes it easier for you to upgrade your machines. It becomes one nice improving cycle as you keep playing DiLiGO Slots more and more, making it easier to upgrade other machines at any other time. Also, take advantage of the trials that DiLiGO offer on certain machines before you upgrade too, to maximise the amount of tokens that you can gain if you haven't already taken up the trial, otherwise this goes to waste.
4. Get in early with your wins. As you play, on certain machines you will find that you will get the same score as another player, but you find that you are behind them on the leaderboard rather than tied. Why is this you ask? It's because DiLiGO rewards the first player to get that achievement. So if you have two people who have 3 Tinkerbells on 5x5 for 10,000pts. competing for 1st overall, you'll find that the person who got the winning combination first gets the prize. This applies all the way down the leaderboard aswell. So get your big wins early so you can survive the barrage of people who get the same score as you and hold your Top 40 position more comfortably.
5. Don't be obsessed with 1st. While it is fun to be the winner for that hour and have your name come up as the winner for that hour on whatever machine you have played, the simple fact is that you may spend more tokens than you need to in your pursuit of being number 1. For example, you may get 1st on Beijing Olympics 2008 which is 1000 tokens, but you may have spent 1260 tokens in doing so, which means that you would be down 260 tokens overall anyway. Always look to make a profit in the machines you want to play and be the long term star on DiLiGO Slots, not be the bright star that flashes up for an hour only to be not seen again for days or weeks again.
6. Get more DiLiGO Buddies. The more DiLiGO buddies you have that you send gifts to and receive gifts from, the easier it will be to have a chance at making that Top 40 as you will have more tokens in your possession and be ready to stake your place on the DiLiGO leaderboards. If you have just 10 buddies that gift to you, that's a minimum of 500 extra tokens that you can use to play for longer and get more points and tokens.
EDITORS NOTE: To find other DiLiGO Gamers who are also looking for more DiLiGO Buddies to exchange Token Gifts with, join the DiLiGO Slots Token Exchange Group.
7. Get your badges and enter competitions. You'll find on the Diligo page when they run competitions such as Badge Bingo that if you have those badges and win, then your win is multiplied if you have that badge or the set that badge is a part of. Also, by being a smart cookie and answering the user submitted questions (or being the smarter cookie and submitting the question itself!) you can also get many more tokens as awarded by the DiLiGO staff.
Just remember people, there's over 7.5 million tokens available from the leaderboards every 24hrs from the 29 individual leaderboards and the overall leaderboard, the question is are you going to take your rightful share of it?? ;)
NOW GET OUT THERE AND START PLAYING!! GOOD LUCK!! :)"
