How to play online casino slot games


So you’ve just gone ahead and loaded up a slot game that caught your eye. We know there are literally thousands to choose from, based on films, super heros and custom themes. So what next? What should you look for when you’re getting to grips with a new slot game? Follow the slot game tutorials so that you feel at home before you start playing.

Before you even think about playing any games, look up a slot game review first. Learn about your slot game. This will save you a lot of time (and cash) otherwise wasted on lousy games.

Locate the spin button. This may sound obvious, but sometimes the ‘spin’ button and the ‘bet max’ button will be next to each other and they can look rather similar. Once you’re certain which of the two is the spin button, you’re ready to start the game.

Have a look to see if the game has an auto spin feature which allows for customisation. For instance, can you set it to stop spinning when you activate a bonus round? Or when a bonus round is completed? Or after you’ve won a certain amount of money?

Be aware of all your betting options. Make sure to check the default bet-per-line, the number of active pay-lines or any other ways you can vary and control your wager.

Check out the Bet Max option. Most games have one of these and see if it’s worth setting your bet near to it. Also, look to see if there is a Gamble option where you can double or triple your money after a winning spin.

Look over the rules of any bonus games. When a bonus round is triggered, players often become excited and jump straight in without taking the time to figure out exactly what’s going on. If you look, there should also be a brief description in that review you read. Learning about a bonus game before it occurs will help you towards a slick gaming experience and prevent any confusion. Remember, the bonus rounds are your big earners: you need to know the rules.

Once you’ve clicked around a little bit, go back to the main screen, check your betting options and get ready to hit spin! I’d advise deciding on an upper limit for how much you want to spend before you play and trying to stick to it: you don’t want to end up blowing all of your money.
