How to Choose an Online Slot?

Before you start playing an online slot machine you should pay attention to a few things, which can help you choose the slot you want to play.

 

 

Game Provider

It is essential to check the game supplier whose slot you are playing. You should always opt for reputable game providers like NetEnt and Microgaming, for one simple reason: these game providers make these games fair eliminating your chance of getting caught in a scam or a fraudulent game.

 

Banking

While not directly related to the choice of slot game itself, you should keep an eye on your bankroll when you start playing online slots. Often, players are driven by the temptation to win, which leads to them emptying their bankroll. Managing your money is vital to keep a healthy gaming session going. It is also important that you do not chase losses so you do not drain your balance and mental strength.

 

Paylines

Paylines are an integral part of slots. There is a theory which says the higher the paylines are, the higher the chances of winning. However, this is not exactly the case. Paylines offer the player different ways to win. For example, a slot with 25 paylines offers 25 different ways for a player to win. Megaways slots can have as many as 117,649 paylines and sometimes even more. Thus, the more paylines a slot has, the greater your chances of getting a winning combination.

 

RTP

Return to player (RTP) is a theoretical percentage value of a slot created based on the amount of money returned to the player after a certain period. For example, if you play a slot with an RTP of 97%, theoretically the slot could return €97 of the €100 wagered. The final RTP is decided based on an average including multiple bets. In theory, you will lose less money on slots with higher RTPs.

 

Hit frequency

Hit frequency, is the term used by casinos to describe how often a slot machine will end up with a winning combination. For example, if a slot machine has a hit frequency of 8%, this means it will stop on a winning combination approximately 8% of the time.
