We recently learned of an interesting complaint against a casino. The player accused the website of manipulating the slot machines because he made about 10 deposits, but was unable to win anything. Upon closer examination, it appears that he made several deposits of $50 and played with bets of $5-10. Well, it is only natural that he lost his money playing like this. We will take this as one approach to playing online slots, but don’t be surprised when you lose your money by taking this risk. You may win 1 or 2 times, but most of the time you will lose.
This complaint made us think and write some general tips for all new online slots players. Again, this is not a way to beat Casinos under any circumstances. If you are a gambling addict, it is best to close this Website and give up on Casinos. If you want to have fun playing Slots but are not sure if you are doing it right, this article will prevent you from making fatal mistakes and help you increase the joy of playing.
If you play low volatility Slots, you should have at least 100 bets on your balance. In other words, if you deposit $100, you can play for $1.
If you play high volatility slots, it is best to have at least 300 bets on your balance.
500 bets will be just enough to play on High Volatility Slots.
Volatility is easy to assess. As a rule, the higher the maximum win, the higher the volatility.
You can also evaluate it by provider. Generally, NetEnt’s Slots are low volatility, while those from Playtech and Greentube are very high volatility, with Microgaming’s being medium volatility.
However, there are some exceptions. If you are not sure, it is best to check this information in our Slot Machines list.
Remember your balance when you start playing. If you place about 50 bets, and the slot pays nothing, and it is a low volatility machine, it is a signal to change the game immediately.
Let’s consider an example. You deposit $600 and want to play Immortal Romance. This is a high volatility slot and therefore you need 200-300 bets on your balance. You place 50 bets of $2 and in 50 spins your balance drops to $550. Now you have two options: continue playing until your balance drops to $500, or change your game. Either way, as soon as your balance drops to $500, change your game!
Another example is a high volatility slot such as Dead or Alive or 300 Shields. It takes time to win anything decent on these games, so the 50-bet rule doesn’t work here. Activate the automatic rounds, find an episode of your favorite TV series and put them in 2 separate windows so you can watch both. You can spin the reels on such Slots all day long until you finally get a big win.
When you get your deposit multiplied by 3-5, it might be better to withdraw 80% of the total amount won and change the Slot provider, if there is an option for that.
If you know that there is a high probability that you can cancel the withdrawal and lose the money, it is best not to play until your withdrawal is processed. If you still want to play, you can try another casino. And yes, it is better to change the casino because if you lose everything to the same website, you will get nothing, but if you lose some money playing in another casino, there are good chances that you will get a cashback or other type of bonus.
The last but not the least – don’t try to win too much money. If you deposit $50, it’s okay to win $100 and withdraw $150. It’s just fine! We have all heard stories about players who want to multiply their deposits by 200 times or more, but you will always be losing your money while trying to win this way. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
P.S. And remember, you can’t win every day. If you lose your first deposit, think twice before making another one. Yes, you can get your money back, but at the same time, you can also lose a lot more than you intended. Just accept that it is not a right day to play slots and wait for better times.
