Slots, Slots, and More Slots
You’ve all seen slot machines in television commercials, in movies, in magazines, and perhaps also in video games (for those familiar with the “Casino Night” level of Sonic the Hedgehog). Usually, they carry a few reels (three or five generally) and the images that must be lined up to win are fruits or those from the four suits of playing cards. The objective, of course, is to fall on matching lines within either or all of the reels, and the payouts are granted accordingly.
The advent of the digital age has ensured that slot machine games, like all other casino games, have been digitalized and put online. There are entire online casinos full of more varieties of slot machines than you can count. Digital technology has allowed game programmers to be far more creative with their designs than was possible in brick-and-mortar casinos. Therefore, as programming has grown more creative and colorful, so has the world of online slot machines.
Finding Good Online Slot Machine Games
Different players will have different criteria; some are looking for bright exciting designs and color schemes for their slot machine games to keep them entertained. Others will seriously consider the machine’s payout statistics and history before choosing a slot machine game to play. There are, of course, hundreds if not thousands of varieties of online slot machine games available at hundreds of different casinos and therefore, some research is required to find the best games for you.
The first method is to run an internet search for the best online slot machine games available. As with any other online service or product, the advice of others with experience is often invaluable. When you have a list of slot games, look at the games themselves – check the types of payouts and the percentages.
Make sure that the online casino uses a good randomizer on their slot machines to ensure that the results are spontaneous and genuine. This often goes hand in hand with the reputation of the casino itself – is it a member of eCOGRA? Is the casino careful with its players’ personal information? The higher-quality the casino, the more likely the slot machine games are to be good.
Check and make sure that the machine with which you are playing gives out regular bonus rounds and free spins – often this is the mark of a good, active slot machine. Also, try playing a few rounds – usually about seven – to see if you win anything. If not, the machine may be “cold” and you may want to look elsewhere.
