Even though online slot developers are beginning to introduce skill elements into slots, the vast majority of slot games at Slots Mummy are all about luck. Still, there are many skills you need to develop while playing slots. So let’s look at four of the most important ones now.
Become an Expert on RTPs
Did you know that all licensed slots (and you should only play these) in the UK must display their return to player percentage (RTP)? I know what you’re thinking: What is an RTP? An RTP is basically the percentage of your betting paid back to you on average. Plus, the higher the RTP, the lower the house edge (the slot’s mathematical advantage over you), and the better your chance of success. And while the RTP in some land-based slots is as low as 75%, most online slots boast an RTP of 95% or higher. Thus, be on the lookout for RTPs from now on – and only play games with RTPs of 95% plus.
Get to Know All Your Betting Options
Although our second tip isn’t exactly rocket science, you’d be surprised at the amount of people that seem to ignore it. Don’t fall into the same trap. Every time you sit down to play a slot, you should be aware of all the betting options on the table. But how can you do this? It’s easy, really: simply study the slot’s pay tables. Then, you won’t throw any of your hard-earned cash away.
Become an Expert on Your Slot Game
Our third tip could become an expensive one, if not handled correctly, so please pay close attention. I mean, how can you become an expert on a slot without spending lots of time and money on it, right? Wrong! You see, these days any slot worth its salt offers you free games. Avail of these and get to know your slot inside out. And if you can’t find any free games or demo versions of a particular game at your online casino or the slot developer’s website, select another game.
Know when to Call it quits playing slots
Of course, even if you abide by the first three tips and are no stranger to slot wins, you could end up losing lots of cash unless you learn when to call it quits. So, before you start playing a slot, always set limits for both profits and losses. A good rule of thumb is to stop playing when you’ve doubled your budget. Let’s say, for example, you decide to spend £20 in a session, and end up winning £40, call it a day immediately. On the other hand, if you’re having a bad day, and the £20 dries up, log out of your mobile device instantly. Then, you’re always in control of the money you spend.
