Slot Machine Strategies, Bonuses & Rounds


There are two types of bonuses attached to online slot machines: progressive bonuses and video slot bonuses. Progressive bonuses are the most popular because they're attached to the highest individual payouts any machine can offer. They're an accumulation of a percentage of money collected thanks to people who have played the same game as you have without winning. These bonuses are sometimes called jackpots at certain online casinos. Some games tie these progressive bonuses into the video slot bonus rounds, but for the most part it's accumulated as part of the machine's overall earnings.

The video slot bonus (which also appears on 3D slot machines as well) is a bonus round that's usually fully animated and features an all-new gameplay area. These bonus rounds vary greatly in length, depending on how many rounds you've earned and if there are any additional bonus rounds earned while playing in the extra level. Some bonus rounds will last less than five seconds while others can go on and on. One gamer recently reported having spent a half-hour just playing bonus rounds on a popular online video slot machine.

Let's be blunt: it's unrealistic to expect that you'll start with a single nickel and end up winning $100 after playing one slot machine bonus round. That said, that very thing has happened. The odds aren't necessarily with you (as slot machines are generally the most profitable games in any casino), but it's possible for you to earn a not-insignificant amount of money while playing in a slot machine that offers bonus rounds.

Before you begin to play in an effort to reach the bonus round, however, you'll want to ensure that you're able to qualify for it. Some machines only allow you to reach the bonus round if you've placed the maximum allowable betting amount or if you're playing a certain number of paylines. These qualifications are actually fairly common, so take the time to look at your online slot machine's payable before you start to play with your money.

As a matter of fact, I've always recommended that players bet the maximum number of coins, even if they're not able to pay the maximum amount per coin. The reason for this is that it ensures that you'll win the maximum amount back for your bankroll, especially as some games offer a special bonus on top of the normal winnings if you played the greatest possible number of coins.

Playing the maximum number of coins with a lower denomination is also a great way to ensure that your bankroll lasts the longest and gives you the greatest chance at winning. Remember: the more you play, the better the odds are that you'll win during any given session.
