Slot tips and strategies are simple guidelines to follow when playing online slot games
First you place your bet.
Typically you can bet one, two or three coins. Some machines may let you bet up to five or more coins.
Depending on the machine, the coins may be $0.01 - $0.02 - $0.05 - $0.10 - $0.25 - $1.00 $5.00 or other values.
So if you bet three coins on a $1 machine, your bet is three dollars. Easy.
Next you click a button to start the reels spinning.
This is the same as pulling the arm on a real slot machine in a land based casino.
Now all you do is wait and see if you win!
Where the reels stop determines if you win and how much.
The goal is to get the symbols (ex: cherries, numbers and so on) to line up on the payline in one of the winning combinations
listed on the pay table. Each game will have its own pay table.
For example, in the classic cherries slot game - three cherries in a row may pay 3 to 1.
Some machines have three or five paylines or even 1024 ways to win To get this information, just click a "help" button.

Progressive Slot Games
Some online casinos offer what are called "progressive jackpots".
That means that a jackpot builds as more and more players play the casino's progressive machines. The first person to hit the winning combination wins the total jackpot. To be eligible for the jackpot you usually have to play the maximum number of coins.
Then the jackpot resets to a lower value and starts to increase again as more people play.
The result of each spin of the wheels is determined by a computer program that generates random results.
This is true for both online slots games and slot machines found in hotel casinos.
The machines can easily be set by the casino to generate whatever payout they choose. For example, they may set it to 95%.
That means for every 100 dollars bet, the machine will, on average, pay out 95 dollars.
The other five dollars goes to the casino and that's how they make their profit. Of course, that’s just on average.
It’s possible, if Lady Luck is on your side, to make hundreds or even thousands of dollars with just one spin.
It’s a common myth that slot machines are the worst gamble in a casino.
The truth is that making bad bets at the craps table or blackjack table can give far worse odds than any slot machine.
In fact, the odds you get when playing slots are similar to those for roulette.
Another commonly held belief is that a slot machine that just gave a big payout won’t pay out again for a while.
Actually, statistically speaking, the odds are the same for every spin and every spin is completely random and
independent of all past spins. So there’s no way to predict the next spin and a jackpot is just as likely to be hit right
after the last one was hit as it is after a thousand dry spins.
Winning slot game strategies
Most slot machines reward you for playing the maximum number of coins.
For example the jackpot may pay 2000 coins with 2 coins played, but 4000 coins when 3 coins are played.
If you don't feel comfortable playing the maximum coins you might consider moving down to a machine that accepts
lower-value coins so you can play the maximum.
For example instead of playing one coin at a dollar machine, play the maximum number of coins at a quarter machine.
Some online casinos let you play for nickels and even pennys.
