Playing Online Slots – a Beginner’s Guide to Hitting the Jackpot; Part 2

While playing online slot playing is a game of chance as we have seen in part 1 of this essay there are certain ways to maximize your winnings.

Here is a 10 point guide to playing online slots and increasing your chances of winning the jackpot.

1. Emotions!

Slots are simple, fun and easy to play and it’s easy to get carried away

It is therefore very important in playing any game with a house edge to have some money control.

When playing online slots its imperative you need to set a bank roll you can afford to lose for each session.

When the session is over that’s it you walk away. Don’t chase losses.

2. Don’t Play Full Coin Unless You Need To

Don’t play full coin on machines that are “equal distribution” or “straight multipliers.”

If you look across the highest pay line and see something like: 100 coins for one coin; 200 coins for two coins; 300 coins for three coins.

You need to be aware that adding extra coins to that first one does not get you anything extra.

You are simply playing two times as much to win two times as much.

3. Maximum Coins on Progressives

You have to play maximum coins on a progressive machine to be able to win the progressive jackpot and that’s the only reason your really playing these online slot machines.

If you don’t play maximum coins, you’re just building the jackpot for another player with no chance to win it yourself.

4. Machines are hot and cold

Don’t believe the common held belief that slot machines are hot or cold and that if you can figure out these streaks you can beat the machine – you can’t.

In hindsight, you can the winning and losing cycles, which are the result of the random nature of the game, and cycles are only visible once they have been.

5. Slot Systems

Don’t try them! They don’t work. Playing online slots is totally random and the previous history of reels payouts etc is to. You cannot use a system on a random game of chance – Period!

6. Play Machines You’re Comfortable With

Pick a machine you really enjoy playing and then play that machine for maximum payout possible.

If you like the idea of huge jackpots, then play progressives.

If, on the other hand if, you want a chance to have fun and win smaller amounts, your best bet would be playing one coin machines and having some fun.

Just go with a machine your comfortable with.

7. Check the Payout Table

Read the directions on the multi-line games carefully to maximize your payout.

When playing these online slot machines each coin opens up new lines and/or symbols that can see what it is you want to win and then make sure you play number of coins to win the payback your are happy with.

8. Play Higher Denominations

If you can afford it, you may consider going to larger denominations, say to a single one-dollar coin. When playing online slot machines the higher the denomination, the better the payback.

9. The House Edge Take Profits

Slot machines have a larger house edge than other casino games and you need to keep this in mind.

While winning is the aim when playing online slot machines, over the long run it will cost you money to play as the odds are stacked against you.

If you are lucky enough to hit the jackpot bank the majority or all of your winnings and count your blessings.

In any session if you are a good way ahead it’s an idea to bank and walk away.

10. Have Fun

If you play online slots machines make sure you enjoy them and have fun expect to lose but also be prepared to win! Imagine walking away with a million jackpot.

It’s this possibility that makes playing online slots so exciting, have fun.
