These 2 seem to have been massive hit with our players so far. We thought we’d give you some slot machine tips and info on how to make the most of your online slot experience and to hopefully win big!

How Slot Games Work

The most important thing to remember about mobile slot games is that they are completely random.  They are developed on a computer program known as RNG which stands for random number generator.  These numbers decipher where your reels will stop at every spin.

This means that every spin you complete is its very own event.  None of your activity leading up to any bet on a slot game will have an effect on the outcome of your current bet.

Return to Player

We often get asked what RTP stands for, and this is the Return to Player.  It’s the term used in the industry to illustrate the percentage of the wagered money on a slot machine that would be paid back over time.  For example, this means if you were to make 100 £1 bets on a slot game that had an RTP of 90% - effectively in the long term you would expect to receive £90 back in wins.  As this is a long-term calculation, there can always be much bigger wins to be won in the short term as a lot of our players have experienced!

Online Slot Game Tips

  • The most important thing to remember when playing online slot games is to have fun! You should never play with the main goal being to win life changing sums of money, you should be enjoying the game you are playing.  When you focus less on the “big win” – that’s when it’s more likely to happen.
  • Don’t play with money that you can’t afford. Although this may sound as if it’s common sense but it isn’t unknown for players to spend money that’s out-with their budget.  Only spend what you can – and it will make for a more enjoyable experience.
  • Play at a nice pace. Some slot games play pretty quickly in terms of speed of spins – particularly if you are using the auto play functionality all of our games have.  So make sure you make your money last by playing at your own speed – especially if you are on a budget.
  • Choose the right game for you. If the thrill of a big win is your thing and it is within your allocated budget, you may want to play on the Fluffy Favourite progressive slot for example where you can scoop up to £50,000. If you are more inclined to enjoy a specific game theme – make sure you have a look at our entire games portfolio to see which one suits you best.  You can play for a penny a spin on the majority of games – so you don’t need to break the bank to find the perfect fit. 

Do Strategies Work?

Just like with everything on the internet, there are lots of people claiming to have successful online slot game strategies.  Some of which make no sense at all!  One of the most discussed is the “Money Management System”.  The concept behind this is that you have win goals and a loss limit.  The idea is to quit when you are ahead when the slots are “hot” – and to limit the amount you would lose when they are “cold”. 

Another concept is “the straight 60” strategy.  Here the idea is to stop playing once you have won/lost 60% of your total budget.  For example, if you had a bankroll of £100, you would stop playing when either you won £60 – or lost £60.

Then there is the “Play and Run” strategy. This would suggest that you would only play on a slot game for 5-10 minutes and then switch to another, effectively running away with your winnings.  This means if you have £100 to spend, you would divide this in to 10 sessions of 10 minutes on different games. 

We can safely say that none of these strategies work, and that the best way to win on any of our slot games is to have fun and enjoy!
