- Always check the rules – before you start to play, make sure that you have read and understood the terms and conditions. There is nothing worse that thinking you have won some money and come to the realisation that you did not meet wagering requirements. To win certain jackpots or bonuses you may be required to make a minimum bet amount. Do not be left to feel cheated and disappointed.
- Use the Special Features – the majority of the more modernised online casino slots will have amazing features like a Fast Play or Auto Play capability that helps in speeding up your game or if you need to grab a quick glass of water and do not want to interrupt your game play, you may utilise this amazing feature.
- Practice Play with Free Spins – if an online casino does not allow you to play the game games for free then you need to find a casino that does. However, the majority of online casinos will have free casino games where you can play online slots for free. In this way you can learn the rules of the game and get a feel for the casino software. Many casinos will also offer free spins as part of their welcoming offer or promotional bonus offer.
