How to Play Slots Online. Read our Tips

Posted on March 3rd, 2010

We get alot of people asking us for slots tips, and we get especially wound up when people tell us that they scooped a big jackpot and then spent it all on the same slot machine! Don´t! So, anyway, we have compiled a list of our favourite things to concentrate on while you are playing slots games online.

Always Read the Pay out Tables
Seems obvious, doesn´t it? But you would be surprised to know how many people don´t spend a little bit of time and effort doing their homework. This is a basic. Compare different slots games before you play. What do they pay out when you win? Don´t just play the Spiderman slot because you happen to like Spiderman The movie! Looking at the pay tables can help you guess the frequency that the slots pays out. If there are many combinations that payout on a smaller scale, then the slot will normally pay out more frequently (with smaller amounts …granted) than a slot that has fewer winning combos that pays out larger sums.

Play The Full Coin Amount in Progressive Slots.
Progressive slots offer big life changing jackpots which builds as more and more coins are pumped in across the network. You can only win the progressive jackpot if you are playing the maximum number of coins. So if you want to bet smaller amounts, pick a non-progressive machine.

Bank Your Profits
If you hit a jackpot, make sure that you bank your profit. Think of the quiz game “Fifteen to One” and bank as you go.  Take your initial pot with some profit and put it to one side. Then play with your winnings. This way you are effectively playing with free (ie the casino´s) money.  Even better: take a break after a hitting a jackpot. Go an make a cup of tea, or stop playing all together.

Keep a Track of your Profits AND Losses
Most slots players can tell you how much they have won. Few can tell you how much they have lost. It´s OK to lose, as long as you win more and keep a track of both. Write it down!

Slowly, slowly.
There´s no need to rush online. You can play at whatever speed you choose, so play slowly and methodically. This doesn´t mean you are playing at snail´s pace, but it also doesn´t mean that you should be clicking the Bet Now button like a caffeine addicted insomniac!

Use Money Management Techniques.
Only bet what you can afford for entertainment. Break your money into smaller amounts and play multiple sessions. Don´t go crazy and blow it all in one session.

Cash Out.
Don´t leave any big wins lying around in your casino´s account. it´ll just earn them interest! Withdraw it pronto, stick it in your bank account and you start earning interest on it. if you leave it in your casino account, you might be tempted to play ith it again.

Don’t Buy Betting Systems.
Betting systems for slots are a con. Period. Don´t pay for one.
