Slots Tips & Odds
Even though online slots are largely games of luck, there are still certain slot strategy devices that can be put in place to improve your odds of winning huge jackpots.
Enhance your online slot machines experience and increase the fun and excitement by following these easy-to remember slot tips.
1. Set a Limit!
Slots are so easy and addictive to play that you may lose track if you don’t set a limit of what you can afford to lose. Having a cut off point will protect you against emotions that may urge you to get carried away.
When that limit is reached, stop, and don’t let those emotions get the better of you.
2. Avoid Full Coin Play Unless Necessary
If the slot machine you are playing on offers something like 100 coins for one coin play, 200 coins for two coin play, then it is an "equal distribution" or "straight multiplier" game, and you will win nothing extra for playing more coins, just a payout equal to your input.
3. Progressive Jackpot? Maximum Coins
If your slot game offers a progressive jackpot, the only way to qualify to win it is to play the maximum amount of coins.
If you play online slots, or any slot machine games, you should be aware of the odds so that you can plot your slot strategy accordingly. This may be a little difficult, but it is beneficial for you to know what you are up against to win.
A computer chip in the slot machine game keeps track of every possible combination for every reel stop in the game. Additionally, there will only be one combination you can hit to win the top prize, or to hit the progressive jackpot, if there is one offered.
Keep in mind that there is only one computerized combination that matches to the highest jackpot prize. Now, say a slot machine is using a 32 value. This means that the chance of each symbol landing on a reel is one in thirty two. If we are using a machine with three reels, then we need three particular symbols to land on each of the three reels. The odds of this happening are 32 by 32 by 32, otherwise equal to odds of one in 32, 768. Sound like a lot? Yes, it does.
There are variations on this, of course. Some online slot games pay bigger jackpots, and may have several computerized combinations, or may use a value other than 32, such as 64, 256, or 512. These larger values would lessen the odds. Some slot machine players believe wrongfully that all odds are based on the number of stops the reels can make.
