The first thing you need to do is to actually pick a slot machine to play. You can either pick one randomly or keep in mind the following:

  • Slot type
  • RTP
  • Volatility
  • Number of paylines or ways to win
  • Bonus game availability
  • Jackpot availability

We recommend starting out with Classic slots since they only feature a single payline and usually only have three reels. Classic slots are the simplest slot machine games that players can easily get started on until they get confident enough to start playing machines with more reels and even more ways to win.

Gamblers with high bankrolls can immediately go for Bonus or Jackpot slots and bet high to unlock certain features that increase payouts or at least increase paylines.

Each slot machine will have different minimum and maximum bets and gamblers will need to decide how much they’ll stake depending on how much their bankroll is and what type of slot they’re playing is. When playing Classic slots, players can bet how much they want, depending on their budget. When playing Bonus slots and Jackpot slots, it’s advisable to bet the maximum amount of at least bet high per round to unlock certain features that increase potential payouts.
