A Guide to Online Slots

A Guide to Online Slots

Author: Oliver Robertson

Online slots are essentially the same as the slots machines which can be found in the physical casinos. The main difference tends to be the fact that the payouts for the online versions tend to be quite high across the board, whereas in places like Vegas, machines which have the same kind of jackpots are usually a minority. Many people enjoy playing the virtual version of these machines for the simple fact that thanks to different promotions and discounts, it is possible to play free online slots where a person can get to grips with playing the game without spending any money at all.


Playing slots online is relatively straight forward just as it is with the slots in a land casino. Basically, the idea is to place a bet on whichever of the lines the player wants, click a button saying "spin" and wait for the reels to turn and settle into position. If enough of the symbols match and are next to each other, then the player gets paid out according to their bet and the symbols.
Whilst this is all fairly straight forward, there are certain things which the player should familiarize himself with first.

• Payout table - Know which symbols will pay out and how much each symbol is worth as they will differ.

• RNG or Random Number Generator - It is important to only play on sites which have verified RNG. This means that the virtual machines have the same kind of algorithms as the physical ones do and ensures that the player is not being cheated in any way and that the numbers are completely random at all times.

• Scatter symbols - As the name suggests, scatter symbols can appear anywhere on a reel and if a matching one appears then the prize will be multiplied accordingly. Just as with the traditional symbols, each scatter symbol will have a different value.

• Wild symbols - These symbols can act as any other symbol which is needed at the time. For example, if two matching symbols appear on one line and then a wild symbol appears next to them, this would count as three matching symbols and would provide a payout for the player.

Tips and tricks

Although online Agent Jane Blonde slot is mainly based on luck, there are certain tactics to playing them. It is advisable, for example, to spread the cost of the total bet over as many lines as possible, even if it means lowering the bet on each singular line. By doing this, the player will increase his odds of winning. Many people who decide to bet heavily on one line are often frustrated when the chosen line does not have any matching symbols but the one below does.

Learning the difference between each machine and game is also essential. There are games which have what is called a "progressive jackpot". These see different machines linked together and the jackpot pool is derived from the loss of each player on the connected machine. As people lose, the jackpot pool gets bigger. Whilst these types of games do offer large payouts, they are harder to win and should probably not be attempted by those who are novices or who do not have the money needed to bide time for the big jackpot.
