Most of those who approach online slots do so with the intent of getting rich quick, blinded by the mirage of easy winnings at the bonuses and jackpots illustrated by the various advertisements on the web.
Obviously most of these newbies come out with “broken bones” from their first sessions and like the desperate people who crowd the slots around the world, they fall into an abyss of depression and poverty.
Playing and winning online slot machines, like other games, requires discipline, patience and undoubtedly a little help from luck, therefore playing with awareness and moderation is the only way to get good results and spend moments of pleasant entertainment. .
Play with awareness
We have already extensively illustrated in previous articles the importance of some concepts such as the percentage of return of the played, of the payout / payback and therefore we ask you once again to deepen them and to keep them in mind before tackling this article.
Knowing the slot is the first step to becoming a winner, so read our reviews carefully and focus your attention on the initial data of each item.
In fact, at the beginning of each of them we have carefully indicated some fundamental data that you must always use to choose the slot with which to try your hand:
- theoretical percentage of return ( payback );
- coin size ( Coin Size );
- maximum bet allowed ( Max Bet ).
The coin denomination
We have dealt with the first aspect in great detail in the appropriate article and now the time has come to address the second topic and to dissect it with the same meticulousness, as it is anything but secondary.
The simpler systems provide a fixed system of paylines that can be activated, to which a variable-sized token is assigned, but other games are characterized by the possibility of adjusting the bet either by choosing the size of the token or by choosing how many coins to bet on each single line.
Proportionate the coin size to your Bankroll
If you want to become responsible and skilled slot machine players, the first thing to do is to choose a Coin Size that is proportional to your Bankroll . (e.g. if you have 20 euros available, avoid making bets of 2 euros each).
The online slots payment system is purely random, being governed by the RNG, however it is preferable not to exhaust your bankroll by squandering it in a few initial spins.
In some slots “guru” guides, it is often claimed that high stakes unlock the machine, but of course this is a lie as the random payout pattern is completely independent of the coin size you have selected.
Vary the size of the token
This strategy may apparently seem contrary to what we have said before, but in reality it is a logical consequence of it, as as you increase / decrease your budget during the game you will necessarily have to change the size of your bets.
The advice that comes from our long experience of playing with hundreds of slots is to reduce your bet after you have obtained a Bonus or Free Spins.
The principle behind this advice to “pull the handbrake” is to limit the effect of exaltation resulting from the victory you have obtained with the Bonus, as the slots like any other game can ignite your mind making you lose sight of the only winning strategy: StopWin.
When to push? The strategic use of the coin denomination
“But then, should you never play with high Coin Sizes?”
This question is more than legitimate after the long series of warnings and invitations to a strategic use of the Coin Size denomination; however the answer lies precisely in this phrase ” strategic use of the coin denomination “.
In fact, it is not unfair to increase the coin size when you have exceeded your Stopwingoal , trying to increase your winnings with a limited number of spins .
Limited number of spins above Stopwin’s targets
But be careful, the number of spins with the cut of the increased token must be calculated with accuracy to avoid falling below the StopWin threshold that you have imposed.
You must absolutely avoid going below the goal, because in your mind the spring that spurs you to catch him could be triggered and this can lead you to lose sight of the fundamental discipline that you have imposed on yourself.
So push when you are already above the winning threshold that you have set yourself, but do it with caution and discipline, as always.
