Before giving you any advice, remember that the chances of winning in slots are negligible. If you are lucky, you will win, if not, you will be left with nothing. However, there are ways to minimize the risks.
- Do not place bets that reduce the payout percentage
Most slots have the same payout percentage (RTP) for all types of bets. However, there are those that significantly reduce the performance of certain rates. These are usually the forerunners of traditional slot machines. In this case, you should always choose a different type of bet.
- Example: A bet on all 3 paylines costs 2 cents and a bet on 1 payline costs 1 cent. It is quite obvious that in the first case, the rate is not so profitable, and its RTP will be extremely low. Therefore, it is better to choose a 2 cents rate.
- Reduce the number of pay lines
If you install only one payline instead of ten, you can increase the slot variance by 5-10 times. Did you know about this? When you bet $ 2 on one line, you can get a much bigger win than if you bet on all 10 lines. There is one caveat: this technique is not suitable for high rollers (those who play for high stakes), since the maximum bet is usually limited.
- Use the doubling function to increase the variance
We have already talked about this function above. It gives the player the opportunity to double their winnings up to 50%. In some slots (for example, from Novomatic), you can double your winnings several times. Since the function increases the variance of the game, you have the opportunity to get several small wins or fewer larger wins.
Example: You can win 40 times for $ 1 per game. However, if you use this feature three times, you can win 5 times at $ 8 per game. The expected payoff in both cases is the same, but in some cases the payoffs can be much higher.
Don’t waste time on strategies
There are dozens of strategies that promise you that you will succeed and be able to predict the outcome of the game. Sounds great, but unfortunately it is not. The point is that slots do not work according to some patterns. As we mentioned earlier, everything is decided by a random number generator, which is not controlled by anyone and is deliberately programmed for an advantage in favor of the online casino. Consequently, no strategy will help to increase the chances of winning, or to cheat the casino – even more so. All hope for good luck
