Slot Machine Playing Tips: Types of Slot Machines

If you are a first time casino-goer, then the sheer number of slot machines that you can find at a casino can be overwhelming. Usually, it is the slot machine that beginners try out first before trying the casino tables. If you are planning to visit a casino for the first time or if you want to improve your chances of winning on slot machines, it would be helpful to first get a good understanding of the different types of slot machines that you can play on. Here is a guide that might be able to help you out.

Reel Slot Machines: These are the most straightforward type of slot machines. They basically consist of three to five reels which should have certain specified combinations for you to win. As a player, you would be placing a wager and then winning a predetermined amount in the event that your reels match one of the specified winning combinations of that particular slot machine.

Multiple Pay Line Slot Machines: These allow players the opportunity to win in more ways; however, you would also need to pay more. Instead of just having to match three to five images in a row on a line to win, you can try your luck in matching the images across multiple lines. Again, although they would require you to pay more, you would also have the chance to win bigger and more frequently.

Progressive Jackpot Slot Machines: These allow players to win on individual bets similar to how the other types of slot machines do; however, they also set aside a certain percentage of the bet made by each player toward a bigger jackpot prize. They usually entice players to play because they offer a chance of winning a significantly larger amount of money through having the right combination.

Slot Machine Playing Tips: Tips to Win More on Penny Slot Machines

Similar to other types of casino games, slot machines usually work in favor of the casino. However, it does not mean that winning the prizes on slot machines is impossible. There are actually several things that you can do to win more and lose less, especially when playing penny slot machines. Here are some tips.

1. Always take only an amount of money that you are prepared to lose. This would limit the amount you would be using at the casino and losing, if ever you turn out to be completely unlucky. If possible, do not bring any credit cards and debit cards along, as bringing these can just tempt you to spend more than what you have previously decided to spend.

2. Look for slot machines which have the most bonus opportunities and the highest payout percentages. Through choosing to play at these machines, you would be able to maximize your profits even before spending anything. Bonus opportunities, which are usually prompted through getting a certain image a certain number of times on the screen, could boost your winnings significantly. Winning a bonus could mean that you would be able to play a shorter mini-game or you might just be given an outright reward of extra winnings.

3. If possible, play the most number of lines that are available. The amount that you are wagering is usually equal to the number of lines that you would be playing so if you would be betting a penny for each line and playing one line, it would cost you a penny for a spin, but playing 20 lines would cost you 20 cents per spin. Although this would mean fewer spins, it does increase your chances of winning.

4. Lastly, if you are winning, you could gradually increase your bet; but if you are losing, decrease your bet. This would help you in potentially increasing your winnings and decrease losses.
