First Step : How to play online slot games :
Wagering / Bets
Typically you can bet one, two or three coins. Some machines may let you bet up to 100 or more coins.
Depending on the machine, the coins may be $0.01 - $0.02 - $0.05 - $0.10 - $0.25 - $1.00 $5.00 or even $500.
So if you bet three coins on a $1 machine, your bet is three dollars. Easy.
Next locate the "spin" button on your screen - click, to start the reels spinning.
Now all you do is wait and see if you win!
Where the reels stop determines if you win and how much.
The goal is to get the slot game symbols (ex: cherries, numbers and so on) to line up on the payline in one of the winning combinations listed on the pay table. Each game will have its own unique pay table.
For example, in the classic cherries slot game - three cherries in a row may pay 3 to 1.
To get payline information, just click a "help" button. This button is usually located on the bottom or top of game.
To get the hang of placing a slot game bet or basic fundementals of a slot game, play one of the many

Slot Game - The Odds
The result of each spin of the reels is determined by a computer program that generates random results.
This is called a Random Number Generator.
This is true for both online slots games and slot machines found in land based casinos.
The machines can easily be set by the casino to generate whatever payout they choose.
For example, they may set it to 95%. That means for every 100 dollars bet, the machine will, on average, pay out 95 dollars.
The other five dollars goes to the casino and that's how they make their profit.
Believe it or not but, online casinos offer some of the highest payouts.
When playing online slot games look for the casino software providers with the highest payout or
RPT in the online gaming industry.
Common Slot Game Myths
It’s a common myth that slot machines are the worst gamble in a casino. Not True !
The truth is that making bad bets at the craps table or blackjack table can give you far worse odds than any slot game.
In fact, the odds you get when playing slot games are similar to those for roulette.
Another commonly held belief is that a slot machine that just gave a big payout won’t pay out again for a while. Not True !
Statistically speaking, the odds are the same for every spin. Due to every spin being completely random and
independent of all past slot game spins. So there’s no way to predict the next spin and a jackpot is just as likely to be
hit right after the last one was hit as it is after a thousand dry spins.

Winning Slot Game Strategies
Most slot machines reward you for playing the maximum number of coins.
For example the jackpot may pay 4000 coins with 2 coins played, but 8000 coins when 3 coins are played.
If you don't feel comfortable playing the maximum coins you might consider moving down to a machine that accepts lower-value
bets so you can play the maximum. In some cases you MUST play the maximum coin bet to win the jackpot.
I often have seen myself slot game players in land based casinos missing out on a large jackpot simply, because they didn't
wager the maximum coin bet. This is a hard lesson to learn.
For example instead of playing one coin at a dollar machine, play the maximum number of coins at a quarter machine.
Some online casinos let you play for nickels and even pennys. Again check the paylines
I have seen penny machines require a maximim bet of 400 coins to win the jackpot.
At $4 a spin it may be better to play a $1 machine at 3 coins maximum for $3 a spin.
