Slot Machine Tips


While there are no strategies that can be employed to guarantee you of wins on slot machines, there are a number of tips which we've learned through our own play over the years, which will ensure maximum enjoyment every time you play. Take a look:

  • Only play slots at reputable online casinos to ensure that your privacy, banking details and winnings are safe and secure. Peace of mind goes a long way in helping you to enjoy your experience.
  • Remember that slots are a game of chance, and aim to play for enjoyment rather than profit.
  • Learn to manage your bankroll and set aside funds which you are prepared to lose before starting to play the slots. Stop when you have depleted the funds, do not "refund" your account with money from your household budget.
  • Always read the associated terms, and rules of play for slots as these differ from machine to machine and in many cases maximum bets are required to win jackpot prizes.
  • Use the "free play" option to try out a machine before settling on it and putting real money down to play, this way you can grow accustomed to it beforehand instead of wasting your time and money.
  • Many casinos offer slots specific bonuses and special offers which can be a huge advantage for you, just make sure you read the terms and conditions before accepting.
  • In general progressive slots have higher coin requirements and lower payout rates due to the fact that they need to accumulate money for those huge prize pots.
  • When playing Bonus Slots, choose those with single rather than double bonus features, as one bonus feature is usually quite boring and they require a lot of spins (and money) to activate.
  • Always examine the paytable before playing to ascertain whether or not it is necessary to bet the maximum coin size in order to qualify for the full jackpot prize. More often than not betting the max is essential and you don't want to be disappointed if you hit the winning symbols but didn't play enough to walk away with the big jackpot.
