How To Play Slot Games
Choosing An Online Casino
These days the UK Gambling Commission and other regulatory departments have put strict measures in place to ensure that gamblers are actually over 18 and are protected from advantageous or dodgy gambling sites.
All the reputable casino sites should now display where they are licensed and where to get gambling advice, should you need it. They will also display UKGC that means that the casino has been tested rigorously and is safe to play at.
While the sign up process could possibly be delayed by an identity verification check, this is often now achieved by an online credit check during the first withdrawal request. In other cases where ID is requested, it could take up to 72 hours for the administration to process your identification. Withdrawal times vary at each casino and which deposit method. For example, bank cards and bank wire will take longer to process than electronic payment methods (2-48hrs)
Generally however, these steps have been put in place to protect the player, rather than hinder or snoop on their details. Most often there is no interruption to the sign up process or the withdrawal request which should be available at any time *or once the bonus wagering requirement has been met.
Therefore, choosing a casino which has a faster withdrawal method or multiple deposit and withdrawal methods, e.g., Bitcoin or PayPal could be more convenient. Some casinos also accept mobile pay.
What Is A Wagering Requirement?
A wagering requirement is something which casinos set to prevent players from taking advantage or abusing their promotions. When a casino offers a deposit bonus, first time player bonus or bonus loyalty cash, they want to ensure the player stays for a while and doesn't leave with all the casinos cash. Both parties therefore can win a little. The casino has the slight advantage over the player. But it is possible to play for example 40x 100 £4,000 sooner than you think. The player needs to read the individual terms on the website, so they are clear about the wagering amount and which games (usually table games) are excluded from the wagering. These are not meant to scare customers away, but should instead provide more hours of entertainment. You may not be able to withdraw real cash until the wager is complete. However, most UK casinos allow players to forfeit their bonus money and withdraw the cash they put in. Wins from bonus money will likely have a wagering requirement and capped win amount. There are casinos that don't cap wins and even give the player a chance at winning a jackpot!
Popular Types Of Slot Games
Many players prefer video slots and 5 reel slots over the rest. But regular breaks are needed realistically, if you are, for example playing through a big casino bonus. Mostly all slots these days do have the auto-play button, where you can select the amount you want to play, the amount of times you'd like to play and a loss/win limit. Auto-play slots are convenient as they automatically halt once the bonus game has been triggered.
Jackpot slots offer a guaranteed jackpot. Progressives jackpots fill up over time, while others pop daily. Daily Double Jackpots are really popular due to the times displayed until the next jackpot pops (3 jackpot symbols).
Wild slots feature a wild symbol that represents a wild on the reels. Some games have RANDOM WILDS, EXPANDING WILDS or SIDEWAYS WILDS that can trigger additional feature games and bonus wins.
Fruit Slots And Slot Reels
Fruit slots and reel slots have a retro feel and are designed with a pub or arcade slot machine feel. The good thing is you don't need to wager £1 at a time!
Christmas themed slots. There are many Winter themed slots. Some of them are easier to play than others. Here's the link to our Winter Slots category.
Egyptian themed slots are often quite amusing and offer a feature bonus game, possibly with levels or multiply features. Many of these slots pay well during the bonus round.
Guaranteed Bonus Slots
Guaranteed Bonus Slots are guaranteed to trigger a bonus within so many spins. Though many casinos are not familiar with this term. Bonus guarantee slots do exist!
Fairy-tale & Fantasy Slots
Slots named after children's stories are less popular these days, due to the recent reports of under 18's playing demo casino games on their mobile phones, usually after watching Mum, Dad or Sis/Bro playing first. A few of these slots still exist, Jack n The Beanstalk, Robin Hood and Wizard Of Oz slots. This is why demo games are no longer readily available to youngsters (which we agree is a good thing).
Poker Slots & Video Poker Games
Poker slots, video poker and poker games are probably the most popular of all for the guys who are missing the real game. Some of the poker games offer a very high return to player average (up to 99%).
