In the long run, slots aren't profitable
Some people win at slots all the time. They've had big wins and small wins, but they can't win over the long run. Slot machines are designed and programmed only to pay back a certain percentage of the money played on them. There is usually a 70-90% success rate, but it can be worse or better depending on where you play. The machines also allow you to win from time to time because no one would ever play if they never won. The payout rate may not be disclosed in some casinos, or it may not even be required in some states. Fortunately, some states provide this information to players, so I would highly recommend that you take advantage of it. Despite it being pretty common knowledge these days, many players still don’t realize that it's unlikely that you will win in the long run, and casinos love the ones that don't know.
Classic slots pay out more than video slots
The big fancy video slots are almost always less profitable than classic reel slots. As a result, they're more entertaining, draw more players and action, and cost a lot more to run and maintain. Casinos tend to spend more money maintaining these machines because they require more space and take up twice as much space as classic slots. These machines will then be dialled down in payout rates to maximize profits, so the casinos still make enough money on them. Casinos make a lot of money off immersive video slots, so don't believe you can win as much on these as on older, traditional slots. Stick to classic slots if you want to have a better chance of winning.
You can't predict the outcome of the slot machines
Slot machines are entirely random, and casinos do not want you to know this. Slot results will still be random, even if they are weighted at a specific rate. There is no relation between each spin and the previous spin. For instance, if you win the jackpot on one spin, your chances of winning the jackpot on the next spin are the same. There is no relation to previous events on future events.
