How to gamble sensibly on slot machine on a budget
casino blog
09 March 2012

If you are playing on an online slot with a budget, there are several different methods that you can apply to make the coinage stretch a bit further. Before starting, you can adjust the amount of cash that you are spending per spin, so as soon as you have launched your favourite slot simply reduce this number to the minimum amount allowed.

This particular option is available on ALL slots and is the most obvious way of prolonging the time that you can spend playing. If your stake is set to the maximum that your budget will allow, the total playing time could literally be over in seconds.

If you are playing on a Classic single line slot, you won’t be able to reduce (or increase) the number of winning paylines because it only has one, so your cash will therefore last even longer on a Classic Slot than it would do on an average Video Slot for that reason alone.

Slots have come a long way in the past few years alone. The gameplay and graphics have improved dramatically with both Classic Slots and Video Slots and the recent introduction of i-Slots has given us a glimpse of what the not-too-distant future may hold for online slots.

Classic Slots will always be around and there is very little that you can do with these. Then we take a step up to the more advanced Video Slots. These games included scatter symbols, wild symbols, free spins and bonus rounds.

Are Online Slots Really Random? How does it Work?
casino blog
06 November 2011

Players have always questioned the fairness of online slots. Are they really random? Are the outcomes as realistic as they are on a land-based slot?

The short answer is yes.

Online casinos use a Random Number Generator, which is usually abbreviated as an RNG. This is a computer program that is able to consistently produce a random and unique series of numbers every time it is used. The RNG’s used by online casinos determine the outcomes of thousands of Online Slots that are currently available. All outcomes today are determined by algorithm, a computer chip and an RNG. Software RNG’s apply to all online games including Roulette, Dice Games, Video Poker and most other Card and Table Games.

When it comes to randomness, both classic slots and the more advanced multi-lined video slots (including their bonus rounds) all have RNG’s constantly working to produce random outcomes and realistic results. The Random Number is in fact generated by a complex mathematical equation prior to producing a specific output.
