It just doesn’t get any better than spinning the reels of a classic fruit machine slot and finding yourself making big wins time after time. But how do you do it consistently? Online slots are designed to let you win, but they are also designed to take your money, so you have to be a fairly good and intuitive player to make it work. Spinning blindly can only end in so much luck after all.

And the thing is there is no sure-fire method to instantaneously become a pro at online slots, they are games of luck at the very end of the day, and luck isn’t the easiest thing to come by. However, all this aside, there are certain methods you can use to increase your chances of winning on online slots. And the more you practice, the more you will start to reap the benefits.

Use Bonus Rounds & Features To Your Advantage

Nowadays online slots can be remarkably complex, and a huge reason for this is the massive variety of bonus rounds and features that developers have been sticking in their titles in order to make them more appealing. This means ultimately that the big money is increasingly becoming more available in these rounds, meaning that it is crucial you have a good knowledge of them before you start playing.

One way to work this out is to read a few reviews and descriptions in order to get to grips with the game’s mechanics. This may seem like a bit of a dull thing to do, but do you really want to get all the way through to the final bonus and fall at the last hurdle? Some seasoned gamblers also like to play on the free mode until they feel comfortable with the gameplay, and this method is sure to pay dividends in the long run.

Do Not Just Jump In

You can spot a theme here, can’t you? Far too many people jump straight into the world of online slots with not enough care, and then they lose stacks of money before they have even had a chance to realize what is going on. Even before doing research on a particular title’s bonus rounds and features it is also important that you pick the right slot in the first place.

You will want one with a theme you’ll enjoy, but more importantly, you will want an example that gives a good chance of winning. RTP, or Return To Player, is a great gauge of whether or not a game is likely to pay out much – anything above 97% is perfect. Additionally, it is worth checking out a title’s volatility, as it will impact how you play. High volatility slots juggle higher losses with higher rewards, whilst the opposite is true for low volatility slots.

Stay Sensible

To really become a pro at online slots you have to take a whole load of things into account, but by far the most important is simply to stay sensible when your gambling. A pro wouldn’t lose all of their money trying to chase a loss, for instance. They would know when to eventually stop, have a break, and try again next time.
