How to Play Online Slot Games

Powered by the latest technology, internet slots boast strong narratives, stunning graphics, extensive soundtracks, and a host of bonus features that traditional slots could only ever dream about. Of course, when you’re feeling nostalgic, you can always play classic slots in cyberspace. Indeed, if you’re into movies, soccer, history or pretty much any other thing in life, you can find a mobile slot at 666 Casino to satisfy your thirst. But how can you play online slots?

Selecting your Slot

Even though you’re probably itching to get started, you need to do some research before you start playing. Choose a slot theme you wish to explore and then start reading up about the games in that genre. Next, study each slot’s return to player percentage (RTP) as this will teach you how much of your betting stake will be returned to you (on average). Avoid slots with sub 95% RTPs as there are far more generous ones available these days. Once you’ve found a few slots with suitable RTPs (95% +), check out their pay tables and bonus features. Finally, select the slot that offers you the most.

Choosing your Online Casino

Another important step that shouldn’t be rushed is choosing your online casino. Although governments around the globe are clamping down on illegal casinos in cyberspace, there are still quite a few dodgy ones out there. Thus, dodge these (pardon the pun) by selecting a casino licensed by the UK Gambling Commission  (UKGC). All the major bookmakers in the UK boast such licenses and if you’re unsure about a particular casino, visit the UKGC website. Most online casinos are big on bonus offers like free cash and free spins so read the fine print carefully and shop around for the best deal.


Once, you’ve chosen your online casino, spend a couple of minutes sorting out your budget. You need to decide how much money you wish to play with before you start each session as otherwise, you may end up spending more than you can afford. Furthermore, take control of the clock from the outset by setting a time limit. And when your money or minutes run out, finish playing immediately.    

Starting a Game

By now, the hard work’s out of the way, and all that’s left to do is start playing. Begin by playing a few demo games because you don’t have to bet any real money with these. Then, start a cash game by setting your betting stake. (But, be careful as online slots are not subject to a £2 maximum betting limit like their offline counterparts.) Next, select the amount of paylines you wish to play with. Finally, click Spin to start spinning the reels. Remember to check your bankroll and the clock regularly while you’re playing, though.
