Slots Tips and Advice


When you sit down to play a slot game, make sure that you know all the rules of the game you intend to play. You don't want to get caught in a situation where you come to a certain feature or function in the game and are not prepared for it, because that might result in something that costs you money or costs you an opportunity.

Know exactly what coin denomination you have to play, because if you have an overall bankroll at the casino, you might find after you've already spun that you have spent more money than you originally intended.

If you want to make "big scores," so to speak, in a slot game, play the maximum number of coins that are available. There's really no getting around that.

If you find that there is a "gamble bonus" available, where you can actually double any win you have, please find out all the parameters involving that, and take advantage of it.

Don't fall for all the bells and whistles of a slot game just for the sake of the bells and whistles. Some of the simpler slot games can bring better value to what you are trying to do.

Consider casinos that have the greatest number of slot games available for you to play. Generally this is going to mean a casino that is powered by Microgaming software, but the fact is that Microgaming puts so many slot games into play that you will be able to find just about any game you want.

If you are interested in progressive jackpots, always keep in mind that you are going to have to bet the maximum number of coins to even be in the running to win one, unless it is one of those rare cases in which random jackpots are awarded.

While you are always going to be hopeful of winning, don't ever go into a slot session actually expecting to win. The realistic view of things is that the house carries an edge into the proceedings, and you are going to have to have some luck in order to come away ahead of the game.

You are best advised to establish a "stop loss" on your session. That is, make sure that you know how much money you are prepared to lose, and if and when you get to that point, stop. By the same token, when you have gotten to the point where you have reached a certain level of profit, feel free to declare victory and depart the field. Don't feel obligated to give your winnings back.
