Online Slot Tips

Slot Tips

Having been in the online casino industry for many years we thought we’d give our top online slot tips and tricks plus some general guidance on playing online slots.

1. Play at an online slot site that has the correct gambling licence.

2. If you are signing up for an introductory offer or bonus, make sure that you are happy with any restrictions, such as a minimum spend level before the bonus is paid, which apply to that offer.

3. Check out what the online slot site bonus or free spin win wagering requirements are.

4. Some free spins have a maximum that you can win whilst playing those free spins. For example BGO Casino offer 200 free spins on Starburst as part of their welcome package for new players. The maximum you can win with those 200 free spins is £100, not bad for free right. However before you can withdraw that £100 you will need to wager it 35x.

5. Online slots do not get hot or cold. If the online slots jackpot hasn’t been hit for a while or the progressive jackpot is showing a huge multi-million pound life changing amount you are just as likely to win the jackpot the spin after someone else won that jackpot. Online slots have the same odds of winning on every spin; however, on a progressive the big jackpot may not be as high. At the end of the day the result of each spin is defined by a Random Number Generator (RNG).

6. Don’t play the maximum coin size or total bet on a progressive jackpot unless you are required to. For example Genie Jackpots has a maximum total bet of £500 but you can play for the progressive for as little as 20p a spin. However, each spin is a bet so if you hit a win but not the progressive you aren’t going to get much for your 20p stake so judge your stake accordingly.

7. Study the payout table so you know what you are trying to get in order to win, the payout table is affectively the rules of how the slot plays. Also, all the scatter symbols, wild symbols and multiplier bonuses will be explained.

8. Most online slots can be played for free so you can see whether you enjoy it or not. Playing for free also allows you to understand how to play before you put in your hard earned cash.

9. Online slots don’t follow cycles that you can predict; each spin is generated by a RNG.

10. There are NO ‘winning systems’ for playing an online slot.

11. Like all online gambling playing on an online slot should be a fun thing to be doing, if it’s not stop playing.

12. Also never chase losses… that means don’t keep losing, take a break; slots play should be viewed as a fun past time not a way of earning money.

13. Only play with money that you can afford to lose.

14. Set yourself a budget and stick to it. This should include a cash-out target and time limit you are going to stay playing.
