Playing online and mobile slots can be lots of fun and is actually very simple. However, like with most new things, many people are put off because they feel they don’t know what to do. Our guide to slots is aimed at total beginners and so if you’ve always wanted to play online slots but didn’t know where or how to start, we’ll help you on your way.
Choosing a Slots Site
The first thing you’ll need to do is pick a site and the key things to note are that you need one that accepts US players, can be trusted, offers great games and has a generous bonus with fair wagering requirements.
Having done that, just take the plunge and join up. It’s really easy – just like buying something from any regular online store. You’ll need to add personal and payment details to the site but the best online casinos use high quality encryption methods so this is as safe and secure as undertaking online banking transactions, if not safer!
Choosing a Game
Most sites have tens, if not hundreds of slots to choose from, as well as an array of other great casino games. Many online slots sites allow you to play the game in demo (also called free play) mode and this is a great way to explore the slot without risking money. Have a look around and see if any take your fancy and have a go, either in demo mode or for small stakes.
Playing an Online Slot
Playing the slots is actually really easy and most slots require no skill or prior knowledge. One thing to note is that you can often change the amount you bet on each spin, usually in two, or even three ways. Slots usually have between three and 25 win lines, although some have many more and you can sometimes choose how many lines you want to bet on, how many coins you want to stake on each line and what each coin is worth.
Collecting Winnings From Online Slots
Generally all you have to do is press spin (or you can use auto spin too) and the slot does the rest. The reels will spin and any winnings will be automatically calculated and added to your account. To withdraw funds just go to “My Account”, “Bank” or “Cashier” and withdraw your winnings – they should be back with you in a couple of days.
