There are different types of slot machine designs and game play. They all have fancy names like Titan Slots or Treasure of the Pharaoh. But the basic game play is the same. Insert a coin or multiple coins as your bet, pull the lever or press the button and wait until the random graphics stop spinning. If the arrangement of the graphics is in such a way that it forms a payout pattern, you get a certain amount of cash as your winnings. Some arrangements pay big while others pay nothing at all.
Due to the number of combinations possible, the chances of winning the largest price is rare. But, there are small prizes that keep us wanting to play more. This is the reason that this game can also be addictive. One might just keep their eye at the big prize and with the hopes of winning, play continuously. It is like being addicted to a computer game but with money on the line.
So, one has to become careful in spending large amount of cash in machines like these. Here are a few general tips for playing slot machines:
- Understand that it all depends upon luck.
- Understand the rules and terminology of the game.
- Know the payout lines and rules, and bet accordingly.
- Keep an eye out for slot machines that haven't paid out for a while. They can be rewarding.
- Always bet the amount that you can afford to lose.
- Always have a limit. Know when to quit after a certain amount of time or after winning/losing a certain amount of money.
- Play the game for the fun of the game and not as a profession. Don't get addicted.
