Borderlands 3 Slot Machine Cheat | Is there a payout glitch?

Nobody would say no to free money, right? So with word circulating of a Borderlands 3 slot machine cheat, it’s only natural that you’d want to learn whether it truly is possible to tip the odds in your favour and glitch the payouts. With that in mind, here’s everything we know about gambling with Lady Luck in Gearbox Software and 2K Games’ new looter-shooter.

Can I cheat the slot machines in Borderlands 3?

Gaming urban legends have historically spread like wildfire, but with the advent of the internet, they’ve become far less prevalent. Still, around a game’s launch window as players are all tripping over themselves to discover any potential secrets that are hidden away. This is especially the case for a title as sprawling and laden with Easter eggs and references as Borderlands 3, as information can become warped or straight-up misinformation can be interpreted as fact.

Unfortunately, that appears to be the case here. Internet sleuths investigating the potential cheat may stumble upon a video that depicts a strange ritual being carried out in order to activate the so-called “glitch,” but for all the spinning, shooting, and meleeing of the machine in question there’s nothing to it but a somewhat elaborate case of a player trolling the rest of the Borderlands community.

It’s a shame, and who’s to say that a legitimate way of tipping the scales in your favor won’t be discovered in the future, but for now there are no known means of cheating the slot machines in Borderlands 3. It’s often said that the house always wins, and today, that saying most certainly continues to ring true.

You better get to questing then, Vault Hunter, as that’s gonna be your best means of putting fat stacks of cash in your in-game pockets. Hoover up those rewards and sell all of that superfluous loot and you’ll be over this unfortunate news in no time!
