Slot machine games on the Internet are more popular than ever, thanks to the fact that they are noticeably a lot more advanced than their previous counterparts and consist of more thrilling and exciting themes and graphics, as shown by games like The Book of Ra. And, of course, the chance to win a big amount of money doesn’t hurt with their popularity, either. But with online slot games, you have to keep in mind that they are primarily games of luck and chance – which means that there is no exact strategy you can employ in order to guarantee a win. You can, however, follow certain rules so you can increase your chances of winning and optimise your play. What are these two rules? Let’s find out.
Rule 1: Be disciplined
The first rule you should always remember is to be disciplined enough to know when you should stop. You should train yourself to have the self-control necessary to leave the game when the timing is right. If you have already won the jackpot or have benefitted from a good winning streak (the rule of thumb in this one is to reach about ten times the amount you have invested) then it might be a good time to stop – for now. The key is not to ‘tempt fate’ by continuing to play, because, as you know, the house will win in the end. If you continue playing even if you have already won, you will likely end up losing more than you bargained for. So when you rake in some winnings, it might be a good time to stop and relax for a while, and take up the game the following day.
Rule 2: Stick with one slot game at a time
Some players, especially those playing slot games online, tend to jump from one slot game to another just because they aren’t winning. But the thing about this is that if you stick with one slot game, it will likely end up paying out after some time. So try to be patient and stick with your chosen game, at least until it pays out. Once it pays out, then your patience and efforts will be rewarded.
One other thing: if you can, try out new slot games. These newer slot games are not likely to have too many players yet, so you don’t have to compete with dozens upon dozens of other players for that jackpot. Chances are, you’re one of the only few players of the game, and your winning chances are therefore increased.
Remember: most online casino gaming sites have a rate of payout between 96 to 98 percent, so you know that you will eventually win. But whilst you are waiting for that big win, just continue enjoying that game and don’t forget to have fun!
