How to Improve Your Slot Game Strategy



Online gambling is becoming ever more popular. Played and enjoyed by millions of people around the world, it offers lot of different gaming options to choose between, from poker and blackjack (also known as 21) through to roulette and slots.


The latter is a favorite among lots of players, and there are a number of reasons for this, from the genre’s immersive graphics to the impossibility of predicting what the outcome of any individual spin might be.

But here’s an interesting fact for you: slot machines have odds based in math, just like any other game at your preferred online casino. While they’re as random as humans can program a computer to be, an understanding of how they work can nonetheless improve your chances of choosing wisely – at least in theory.

Let’s take a look at how it works.

Choosing the best slot machines to play

We’ll start this with a preface: there’s no guaranteed way to ensure a win when playing slots. That being said, there are certain machines with higher payback percentages than others, which means that choosing these gives a higher theoretical likelihood of earning a return on your money.

The machines that fall into this category tend to be those that cost more, as they’re specifically programmed this way. This means that while playing them carries a higher risk, in the sense that you have more money on the table, the odds of a win are improved to some degree.

The downside to this, of course, is that while you’re more likely to be rewarded with a payout, you also have an increased likelihood of losing a larger sum than you would playing on a lower cost machine. It’s therefore down to you to decide whether or not this risk is worth it.

The information we’ve shared above is no secret: it’s documented time and again. In fact, the very reason for this variety in machines is to give you the chance to choose your preferred level of risk, so that you can opt to either invest more and increase your likelihood of a payout or err on the side of caution and keep your outlay to a minimum.

While this gives you the ability to increase the odds of a win in a mathematical sense, it’s impossible to predict whether any particular slot will actually deliver a payout, meaning you must never play more than you can afford to lose.

Bearing this in mind, the best way to strategize is to make a choice between lower risks and lower rewards or higher risks and higher rewards, and then to select a game that not only suits the initial investment you want to make, but that appeals to you on a more personal level – in the sense of how likely you are to enjoy it.

This is because, at its heart, a successful slot machine strategy is simply one that delivers maximal enjoyment, meaning that it matters little whether your preferred option is the Starburst slot game from Regal Wins or a themed title, such as Jumanji or Monopoly. 

So long as you’re having fun and fully understand the risks you’re running, you’ve already managed to successfully tip the odds in your favor, by ensuring a fun gaming experience and a level of risk and reward that you’re comfortable with.
