Slots Tips and Strategies
The Aim of the Game
Slot machines usually involve the matching up of different symbols to create a winning combination. Depending on the combination, the slot machine might pay out in credits or coins, or with special features such as Bonus Rounds.
The main goal is to win the Jackpot, but also important is to win as much money as possible, while trying for the Jackpot. The Slots are quite easy to play, but remember that there are a few rules, and strategy is also involved.
The Slots are a popular choice amongst players, but it is an advantage to know how to play intelligently, and understanding how the different slot machines work to improve your chances of winning that Jackpot!
5 Tips to Improve your Game
- Before you start playing, familiarize yourself with the symbols which constitute a Jackpot.
- Play the Maximum Bet and play all the Playlines, if you can afford it!
- If you are on a budget, look for machines that don’t require a Maximum Bet.
- Play the machines with the same respect as any other casino game, and know how to make your money last.
- Know your limits, and when the limit is reached, make sure to stop playing.
Single Playlines vs Multiple Playlines
Single Playline Games are very easy to play, as there is only one Playline to bet on. These games are ideal if you are playing on a budget.
Multiple Playlines are a bit more complicated, since you have to select how many playlines you want to play. The more playlines you play, the more money you will have to bet.
It is best to always play all the paylines – it could happen that you hit a winning combination on a payline, but you have not activated that payline – this can be extremely frustrating!
Regular Slots vs Progressive Slots
Regular Slots have a Fixed Jackpot that doesn’t change. They do seem to pay out more often than Progressive Slots, and the chances of winning can be a lot higher.
Progressive Slots have Jackpots that grow every time they are played. The odds of winning are lower than the Regular Slots, but still have many Bonus Features to make it worth while.
How the Slots Work
Slots remain one of the most misunderstood games in a Casino. Where the Reel stops is determined by a Random Number Generator (RNG).
In modern machines the RNG is built into the games software, and is impossible to be manipulated by anyone, including the Casino.
The RNG is continually cycling through combinations, even when nobody is playing the machine. The minute a player sets the reels spinning, the RNG selects the combination at that precise moment.
If they match a winning combination, you win! The RNG System means that there are no ‘hot’ or ‘cold’ cycles.
There is even the possibility that you hit the Jackpot on one spin, and then do it again on the next spin!!
