8 tips for winning at slots

Slot machines can offer both relaxation, excitement and of course the chance to win the big house. But how do you really go about increasing your chances of winning at slots? In this article, I share eight tips on how to do just that.

Tips to improve your chances of winning

There are a lot of things you can do to improve your chances of winning at slot machines. Below I share some of them:

  1. Take advantage of welcome offers

Taking advantage of welcome offers and other promotions is a great way to increase your chances of winning. Thanks to these offers, you can take part in e.g. free spins or matching bonuses, which give you the opportunity to play more for your deposit.

  1. Be aware that chance rules 

The first thing you should be aware of is that all slot machines available at Snabbis and other licensed casinos are controlled by chance. It is thus impossible to manipulate or predict when and how much you will win.

The basis of all slot machines is the so-called RNG software which ensures that all symbols appear on the reels in random order. To learn more about this, I recommend you take a look at my previous article ”How slots work?”.

  1. Find out how to win

Something you should also do is find out how you actually win in a slot machine. This is because it can differ from machine to machine. To find out how to win in a specific slots, you can open the help menu which is usually in the left or right corner, see example below:

  1. Play slots with high RTP

RTP – which is an abbreviation for Return To Player – is a common term in the casino world. Namely, it is a term used to describe the theoretical payback on a slot machine or other casino game.

Each slot thus has a value that tells you what percentage of the money wagered goes back to the player in theory. Namely, it is rare that the theoretical repayment is correct in practice, in that it is calculated over hundreds of thousands or millions of spins, in parallel as the machines are based on chance.

By playing on slots with high RTP you thus increase your chances of winning purely theoretically.

More information about this concept can be found in my previous article ”What is RTP?”.

  1. Choose between low or high volatility slots

Just as all slot machines have a theoretical payback, they also have a low or high volatility.

In short slots with low volatility have a higher dividend rate. Your chances of winning are thus higher, but the winnings smaller. As you have probably figured out how slots with high volatility works, just the opposite – your chances of winning are smaller, but the potential winnings are greater.

It is up to you to decide which of these options suits you best. If you want to deepen your knowledge further before that, you can take a look at my previous article ”What is volatility?”.

  1. Play slot machines with low stakes

By playing on the slot machines that offer low stakes, you can make more spins for your bet. Something that means more chances of winning for you. Do not miss my previous article where I list “107 slots with low stakes”.

  1. Take advantage of bonus features

The last tip you can use to increase your chances of winning is to play slots with bonus features. The goal of many of these features is to increase the chances of winning combinations.

I have previously written several articles where I list slot machines with different bonus features:

  1. Find the type of game that suits you

There are a variety of types of slot machines. All with their unique looks and features. You should of course find the type of vending machine that suits you best. To get acquainted with the different types, you can check out my article olika typer av spelautomater.
