While playing slot machines, you might think all you need to do is push a button or pull a lever and that’s it. This may be right in most instances, but there are a few things you can do to make your time spent playing slots more enjoyable and a little easier.
Most online slot machine games will have some type of function that allows you to play the game without touching a thing. You enter in how much you want to wager, how many lines and for how many spins you wish to play. Once you’ve set the parameters, you just click start and watch the cash pour in.
This mainly applies to online slots, but since more and more people play slot machines online it’s definitely worth mentioning.
Playing one slot machine at a time can be a bit boring for some. Try playing a few at a time on your visit to the casino. It’s pretty simple to do and only takes a few minutes to adjust to the faster pace.
All you do is find a block of 2 or 3 slots that are vacant and sit down at one. Feed the machines with currency and click away. I’ve seen people play a whole row of slots at one time. They walk up and down the aisle like an assembly line pumping money into each one. It’s almost like they are in a trance.
A slot tournament is a unique way to enjoy slots. To enter, you pay a fee based on what the casino is charging. This money goes into the prize pool and a small portion goes to the casino. Once the tournament starts you will have a set time limit or amount of spins to win as much as possible or until you lose all your money.
Everyone starts with the same amount, and you don’t actually lose this money if you happen to lose while playing. You only lose the fee you paid to enter the tournament. And you don’t actually win the amount during the tournament either. Several spots will be paid out based on number of entrants and depending on how much the prize pool is, will determine how much you win.
Slot tournaments are fun way to play slots and can be found online and in live casinos.
Play the Maximum Number of Lines
Most slot machines have numerous pay lines, some upwards of 100 or more. Yet, slot players still only play single lines or only a few of these at a time. By playing all the lines, you set yourself up to win the most money possible. You also make yourself eligible for bonuses, and possible jackpots that you could not win if you are only playing a few lines per spin.
Play the Maximum Coins
Just as a slot machine has multiple pay lines, it will also allow you to play a different amount of coins. This will vary from slot to slot, but it’s always best to play the maximum number of coins allowed.
This lets you win the most money possible and also qualifies you for bonuses or jackpots that you could not win if only playing a few coins at a time. It’s almost the exact same reason why you want to play the maximum number of pay lines.
Know the Bonus Rounds
Failure to understand how a bonus feature works on a slot can cost you some money. To save you time and headaches and possible loss of coins, read all the rules, including how the bonus rounds work before attempting to play a slot machine. Some of these bonus rounds can be quite tricky and you need to know how they work before playing them.
Don’t Overdo it
Some slots players will play for hours on end. It’s best not to play too much at one time as you lose focus and lose money in the process. You need to take breaks or just stop playing altogether when you start to feel you are not at your optimal level of concentration.
By failing to do so, you may miss bonus round features or just forget the points I mentioned above.
Many online casinos offer their games in a flash version. This is a program that does not need to be installed and runs right from your web browser. The drawback to using this flash version is you don’t get the full effect of the slot. The graphics are subpar in most cases and the overall quality is just isn’t worth playing. Install the full games and get the most out of the slot you are playing.
