Mastering Online Slots: Proven Strategies for Success

That’s the dictionary definition of the word ‘success’. We provide that definition so that you don’t get your wires crossed when reading this article. This is not a guide on how to win every time you play a slot, nor does this article contain any strategies that will improve your chances of winning.

Instead it has a breakdown of proven strategies to ensure that you have as much fun as possible when you’re playing which is something we see as a success. So if you’re thinking about signing up to an online casino or you just want to take your slot gaming to the next level, read on to find out how.

Set a Budget

It’s ridiculous when you think about it that we’re taught about Oxbow lakes, the feudal system of early Europe and how to say “Do you know how to get to the library?” in French at school but we are not taught how to budget.

The latter is such a fundamental part of life that it should be compulsory for every school in the land to teach it and if French and Oxbow lakes have to fall to the wayside then so be it. Seriously, when was the last time you asked a French person how to get to the library?

Anyway, with that out of our system let’s get back to budgets and why they are important, particularly when it comes to slot machines. Think of a budget like preparation, in that those who fail to prepare are prepared to fail.

A budget is an essential, especially when wagering money online. If you want to guarantee a way to kill the vibes and make turn your gambling daydream into a nightmare go ahead and spin the reels without a budget.

How to Budget

Okay, it’s one thing telling you to budget but how exactly do you do that? Well first things first you’re going to need to work out how many nights a week you’d like to play online slots. We recommend around 2 nights a week at most.

Once you’re settled on that, work out how much money you would spend on a normal night out: a trip to the cinema, going for a bite to eat with friends or maybe going for a couple of casual drinks.

Then you have your maximum budget for playing online slots. A night spinning the reels should never cost you more than a night at the cinema with your friends because ultimately both should be offering you the same thing – a way to unwind and relax.

Finally you’re going to need to budget your time. Do you want to play for an hour? Two hours? Four hours? Whatever time period you come up with you’re going to work out how much to wager each spin to ensure that your allocated budget matches up to your time.

You don’t want to go spending all of your budget in the first ten minutes after all.

Tips to Have More Fun

Now you have your budget set and you’ve worked out your average wager to make sure you get as much fun out of spinning the slots as possible, what other ways are there to ensure that you have as much fun as possible?

Here’s a few that we think will help:

Play Progressive Jackpots: The vast majority of us simply don’t have the budget to wager big bucks on each spin and get the thrill of big payouts. What we do have though are progressive jackpots which allow us to dream about winning a life changing sum of money.

These jackpots are randomly allocated to one player spinning the reels on that particular game and can be as high as a million dollars.

Play Around: Favourites are favourites for a reason yes, but also there’s a whole wide world of slots out there to explore. Gaming companies are always coming up with new themes which means there’s a wide variety of games out there to keep you excited.

Immerse Yourself: Part of the fun of playing slots is being able to totally immerse yourself in the game and get into that flow state. If you’re playing a really good slot don’t miss out on total immersion by listening to a podcast or music in the background. Crank the game up to full volume and throw yourself wholeheartedly into it.
