How to Play Slots

Slots are a great source of entertainment, but bear in mind that you are playing with real money, not tokens. So play slots seriously and use your money wisely as making money is definitely the sole purpose of playing this game.

Slots have a great appeal because, unlike most other casino games, you can play at odd times to suit you and they don’t require any real skill. Luck is the essential ingredient. The main point of the game is to manage your bankroll as effectively as possible to ensure that you remain in the slots game as long as you can. However to make the most of these games there are a few things to look out for that will increase your chances on the slots:
  • Pick a slot machine with denominations most suitable to your pocket.
  • Bet the max number of paylines, as this is the only way to get the jackpot. It is the jackpot that increases your overall odds of winning.
  • Watch for special promotions, like high jackpots.
  • Play slots that haven’t paid out in a while.
  • Use Casinos that offer Welcome Bonuses, this will increase your bank roll for free and your chance of winning. It is a way to increase the odds in your favour.
  • Use Casinos that have a Loyalty scheme. That way you gain points which can be redeemed for various prizes and sometimes can be converted into cash.
  • Learn the payout table. This will tell you what combinations pay out, and whether betting multiple coins will gain better pay outs.
You do not need to worry about being “cheated”, Online Casinos are regulated and all types of slots use a random number generator (RNG) that never stops working, so that every time you play it is completely random.

Slot Laughs

Don’t You Want a Fanta?
A blonde was using a can machine outside of her local shop. After putting in fifty pence, a coke came out of the machine. She put it on the ground, put fifty pence more into the machine, and pushes another button. Suddenly a Fanta orange came out of the machine!

She continued to do this until a man wanting to use the machine became impatient. "Excuse me miss, can I get myself a drink and then you can go back to whatever it is that you are doing?"

The blonde turned around and said, "Yeah right! I'm not giving up this machine while I'm still winning!"

I’m That Man
Ned was down on his luck in Las Vegas. He had gambled away all his money and had to borrow a dime from another gambler just to use the men's room. The stall happened to be open, so he used the dime in a slot machine and hit the jackpot. He took his winnings and went to the blackjack table and turned his small winnings into ten million dollars.

Wealthy beyond his wildest dreams, Ned went on the lecture circuit, where he told his incredible story. He told his audiences that he was eternally grateful to his benefactor, and if he ever found the man he would share his fortune with him. After months of lectures, a man in the audience jumped up and said, "I'm that man. I was the one who gave you the dime."

"You're not the one I'm looking for. I'm looking for the guy who left the door open!"

You Can't Lose
Two girlfriends, Britney and Tiffany, went to Vegas to play the slots. Each agreed that when her money was gone, she would go to the Casino entrance and sit on the bench to wait for her girlfriend.

Tiffany quickly lost all of her money and went to sit on the bench. She waited, and waited, and waited and waited.

After what seemed like an eternity, she saw Britney coming toward her carrying a huge sack of coins. "Hey, it looks like you hit it big Britney!." said Tiffany "Oh yeah," said Britney, "did I hit it big! I found a good machine, its way in the back. I'll show it to you-you can't lose! Every time you put a dollar in 4 quarters come out!
