Free Slots win money
This is the first part in a new series we are running on how you can get the most from your online slots play. We all know the odds are set against you with slot machines, but sometimes you can improve your chance of winning
1 - Choose a Casino with High Payout Rates
One thing that quite a few players do not realize, is that some casinos give you better payouts than others. The rate of your chance of winning on a slot machine is known as the 'payback' rate and anything over 90% is good.
As you will see, if you visit our listings of casinos, we only select casinos to recommend that have the highest payout rates - that means you get much more play for your money. And yes, it gives you a better chance of winning cash when you play
2 - Decide Whether to Max Bet or Not
Some slot machines pay out better when you play max bet. For example, on some 3-reel games, if you hit a line of the top-paying symbols you might win (for example) 1, 000 credits if you play 1 credit per line.
But, if you had been playing max credits per line (for example, 3 credits), then the top win might rise to 10, 000.
In this type of example, you should play max bet, because if you hit that top winning line, you stand to win a lot more than you would otherwise
With other games, it makes no difference. For example, most video slots pay out the same, no matter how many credits per line you play.
One exception with video slots, is when there is a progressive jackpot. If you play a game like Wizard of Oz, which has a big progressive, you can only win if you play max bet. The max bet is usually $3 or $4 per spin, so you need quite a lot of money to play, but you get much better odds when you max bet.
If you don't have enough to max bet, then I would say it is better to choose a slot with a lower domination that does not have a progressive.
So, look for a jackpot you can win without max bet
Although they are very rare these days, there are some machines still out there that do not require you to max bet to stand a chance of winning the jackpot.
