Top 5 Common Slot Game Mistakes To Avoid

by | Blog | 0 comments

Online slots play for free is one thing, but when things get real it’s important to avoid the most common pitfalls, traps, and mistakes. Leveraging our many years of online slot-playing experience, we’ll give you our best insider tips in this article.

#1 Not setting a gambling budget (and sticking with it!)

This is a common trap that many players walk into all the time. It can be tempting to just play and have fun, but it’s not so fun when you run out of money. Setting a budget is vital when you play online slots, and it’s even more important to stick with the budget you have decided.

It’s not complicated.

You just see how much money you can afford to lose per month, and then you dedicate a certain percentage of that to playing online slots and games. Be open about this with your partner, as you don’t want to ruin the relationship by giving him/her unpleasant surprises down the road.

Of course, playing and commenting on the free demo slots no download here on this website can increase your budget significantly, and not least if you win the top monthly cash prize.

This is because we share 50% of our slot site revenue with the community as RevShare Prizes every month.

#2 Not taking a break when you run into a losing streak

This happens to everyone once in a while, and it’s one of those days where you feel that nothing goes your way. This is not a good day to play online slots, or at least not for real money. You can always play and comment on the free slot games here on this website instead, and this can land you significant real money prizes as well.

What better way to take the edge of a losing streak than playing free demo slots instead?

You have to sign up as a member first, of course, but this is free. After that, you can play and comment on as many demo games as you want, and this is how you increase your chances for the biggest monthly cash prizes.

#3 Not checking the RTP and volatility of the game

All slot games come with a Return To Player (RTP) percentage, and it’s around 95 to 96 % on average. This tells you how much the game returns in the form of winnings in the long run, and the House Edge is therefore around 4 to 5 % on average for online slot games.

Many game providers allow the slot sites to adjust the RTP as they see fit within certain limits, and this depends on the jurisdiction as well. You can therefore risk far lower RTP settings than the average stated above if you play at the “wrong” casinos.

Always check the RTP of any game you play, and ask customer service about this if there is any doubt. Overall, you should try to stick with slots and games that have an RTP of at least 95 %, and preferably higher than 96 %.

The volatility of the game is also important to be aware of. Low volatility slot games pay smaller wins frequently, which is less risky. High volatility games are more risky, since you can get a lot of dead spins before you land a larger win. Always check the volatility of the game, and test the free demo version to get a sense of the ebb and flow of the gameplay.

#4 Trying to win back your losses

It’s never a good idea to play when you are on tilt, which is typically the case if you are trying to win back what you have lost. It’s much better to take a break, and go get some fresh air and do something else instead. Trying to win back your losses usually means you will lose more, and it’s also a sign that you have lost control of yourself in the process.

Playing slots online is supposed to be fun, and it’s important to gamble responsibly at all times. It’s easy to do that when you’re winning, so the real test comes when you run into a losing streak. Establish firm principles for how you play, and never break your own rules.

#5 Playing while intoxicated

We get that it’s fun to play while drunk, but it’s also a lot more risky. You can much more easily lose control when you play intoxicated, and especially if you play when you come home from a late night out. Waking up with a headache and vague memories of losing big money is not fun, so try to stick with playing while sober.

The good news is that you can play any free slots no download right here on this site while drinking. We don’t mind at all, and you don’t risk losing real money. You can even comment on the demo slots to win real money prizes every month, and we don’t mind if you’re having a beer or two while doing it.

Try to keep things civil, however, as we do mind bad behavior in the comment fields.
