5 Basic online slot Tips

You don’t want to run before you can walk, so let’s get back to basics with five basic slotsUK tips to improve your likelihood of winning and enjoying your overall gaming experience!  

Tip 1: Place higher denomination bets 

Why? Because whilst placing higher denominations won’t increase your chances of winning, placing higher denomination bets is an easy way to maximise your winnings if and when you do win. If you can afford to bet a single high denomination bet you could be rewarded handsomely for it as higher denomination spins payout more than lower denomination spins.  

For example, if you have the choice between a single £2 bet or two £1 bets the best thing to do is to go for the single £2 bet to maximise your winnings. However, the stakes are higher with this bet and you could find yourself depleting your bankroll quicker by doing this. So, if you’re looking to make your roll last as long as possible, the lower denomination bets will be more suited to you so you get more spins for your money.  

Tip 2: Bet the Max

Many slot games entice players in by showcasing a huge max payout and, of course, many players find playing for a life-changing prize from just one spin exhilarating. However, players need to keep in mind that this huge prize is only attainable if you bet the maximum – as many of these jackpots have betting thresholds that you need to meet to be eligible to win the largest jackpot. So, if you want to win big and can afford to do so, bet the max!  

Tip 3: Play for free first 

Let’s face it, every player wants to know the best ways to improve their chances of winning and the big prizes are usually the main reason why players are enticed to play slots in the first place. But before you place your bet, use demo mode and play for free so you get a better understanding of the game and its features.  

Tip 4: Don’t get superstitious 

A common slot myth is that if you’re on a losing streak you will be “due” a big payout but this is just superstition and isn’t true. Before you play, make sure you understand that outcome of a spin is determined by a Random Number Generator (RNG) meaning that spins are not only completely independent from one another but are completely random. It’s all just down to luck!  

Tip 5: Set yourself a budget 

The best way to make the most of your slot experience is to set yourself some sensible budget – whether this is a budget on the amount of money you are going to spend, a max budget where once you win this amount of money you walk away or even a time budget for the amount of time you want to dedicate to enjoying slots. Budgets will help you to manage your bankroll and to ensure you are being sensible which will ultimately mean you have the most positive experience possible and stop you walking away empty-handed.
