Choosing the right casino game for you can be a difficult task, as you can never be sure what the outcome will be. Just like picking out a birthday cake, everybody has their own preference in things such as flavour, colour and design. So with this weeks blog, we have decided to give you an insight into the different factors you should consider, before choosing the right casino game for you. With over a 1000 online slots, live casino games and table games available on our site, we want to make your choice a little bit easier.
Before You Play…
First and foremost, before you decide on playing any casino game you must understand that gambling should only ever be a bit of fun. You should never gamble with funds that you cannot afford to lose. Before depositing to any site, you should always set a deposit limit, so that you do not lose more than you can afford to. If you feel like gambling is becoming a problem, you can always read our helpful guide to gambling responsibly here.
Slots and other casino games
As we mentioned before, there are lots of different types of games you can play at an online casino. Slots have the most variety when it comes to how much / how often you can win. You can have a completely different experience each time. Every slot game uses a random number generator to determine the outcome. As a result, neither you nor I will ever know exactly is behind each spin. It could be a ‘Big Win’ or not win anything at all.
What you can look at though, is how volatile that particular game is. The volatility of a slot will give you an idea of how big/frequent the wins can be. Casino software providers such as Pragmatic Play will display this to players before the game even loads. You can also read about this and other outcomes of the games when you read the ‘Help’ section within the game or by clicking on the question mark. This will also tell you the likelihood of hitting free spins and the return to player values.
Types of Slots
Apart from the number of lines they have and volatility of the slot itself, every Slot game has a multitude of different features, ways to win and gambling options that appeal to different types of players.
Ways to win: Games such as Immortal romance by Microgaming have 243 chances to win and this refers to the number of combinations that you can win from while playing.
Bonus rounds and free spins: Not every game has this type of feature but is something that the majority of our games have. This is usually triggered after hitting 3 or more “scatter symbols. Again every slot game is different, some games just give you added spins with the same bet value. Others have added characteristics such as sticky wilds in Netent’s dead or Alive, whereby the wild symbols stick to the screen and increase your chances of winning on every spin.
Jackpot games: As you might have guessed, these kinds of slot games have the potential to pay out incredibly large amounts of money. Jackpot like Mega Moolahs, for example, paid out to one lucky player €18,910,668.01 million this week. As you play you contribute to a jackpot and sometimes have the chances of winning the same as Lotto. Other types such as Local jackpot games have better chances of winning but cannot be won on any other site.
Big bet: If you are feeling a bit lucky you may be interested in this feature. Legend of the Pharaohs by scientific games, for example, allow you to buy a number of types of “Big Bets”. Presented with different options on how much you can spend each of them has their own features that can increase your chances you have of winning big. These types of games are very popular with players that have a large bankroll. If you do not intend to spend that much or using bonus funds we would not advise playing these types of slots.
The choice is all yours
Just remember, gambling should always be fun and the choice is always yours! You can find ‘Big Cash’ win videos of almost every game, on Youtube, which can show you what it is like to hit those Big Wins.
Although these videos are fun to watch, you should never try to chase these wins, as you are never guaranteed these ‘Big Wins’, no matter how much you bet or how frequent you play. Some people hit the jackpot on their first attempt, others never hit it, even after their 1 million attempts. Before playing a game you think you may like, research it or try it in ‘Demo Mode’. By researching the game, you will learn the vitality of the game as well as the chances of winning. We hope this post helped with what type of casino game is right for you and we wish you the best of luck with whatever choice you make.
