Is There A Strategy To Online Slots? By Christina Applebaum Slot games are by far the favorite of all casino games. People all over the world play slots hoping for that one magic spin where they win the jackpot and their lives are transformed. Or maybe they are just hoping to win enough to pay off a couple credit card bills. Now with online gaming you can play slots from practically anywhere. You can play them from the comfort of your own home in your favorite chair - you can even play them soaking in a bubble bath from your mobile device if you are so inclined. [You might want to put that mobile device in a zip lock bag first.] Many people wonder if there is a strategy to playing slots. I believe the answer is yes, absolutely! Select Your Casino The casino you play at matters. Choose a reputable casino. Reputable casinos use reputable software so your game looks and plays great. This will also ensure the fairness of your game as well as your payouts when you win. Know Your Game Many people miss out on winning big by not knowing what bet the game they are playing requires for the largest payouts. Be sure to read the pay line info for the games so you know how they work. Take advantage of the "Play Mode" offered by casinos to familiarize yourself with the games without risking any of your money. Sometimes you find a game that just can't lose, what game that is is different for everyone. Think of it as chemistry. When you find your game stick with it. Build Your Bankroll Start with minimum or small bets and steadily increase your bankroll. It may seem boring at first, but as your bankroll increases so can your bets. After a while your bankroll will be big enough to make some of the more risky bets seem not so risky. Bet Maximum Jackpots are typically paid out on a maximum coin bet. If your bankroll is smaller, then pick a smaller denomination coin that will allow you to play the maximun number of coins. Know The Payouts Of The Games Stick to games that have a 95% payout average or higher. These are really the only games worth your time or money. Withdraw! Withdraw! Withdraw! Know when to stop. If you are ahead or if you have just hit the jackpot - Cash Out! Don't make the mistake of playing it back thinking you can win more. Know when to take the money and run! Know when to hold them, know when to fold them - you get what I'm saying? That way you live to spin another day.
