Online Fruit Machine FAQ
|If you have a question about fruit machine online then check below as we have answers for the most frequent questions asked. If your question is not answered below then please
Where can I play Barcrest machines on the Internet?
Recently some of the Barcrest games as well as games from other fruit machine makers have started to appear online. For example Rainbow Riches and Cashino are now online. For all of games we have reviewed check out our Fruit Machine Reviews section.
Do you have any cheats for the online fruit machines?
While we have been playing them for some time we have not yet found any real cheats or ways of telling if you are going to win. The biggest tip we can give you is to read all of the instructions before playing to avoid missing out on any opportunities.
What are the payout percentages like online?
They are dramatically better than you will find in a pub or club. In the UK the fruit machines are generally set to pay back just 71% of bets while online the number averages 96%. This makes a huge difference especially if you are a long term player.
Are the payout percentages verified?
Yes, all of the online casinos that we list have their payouts audited by a third party company on a monthly basis. You can find these reports on their websites usually indicated by a "Payouts Independently Audited" link or button.
I can't find the fruit machines at the Microgaming casinos. Where are they?
For some reason the fruit machines that Microgaming make are only available via the flash versions of the casinos. When you visit a Microgaming casinos web site such as Spin Palace look for the "Instant Play" or "Flash Casino" link and you will find all of the games.
How much can I win online?
Again the jackpots online are way better than offline. While there are some games in clubs that have £250 jackpots you can find jackpots of up to £20,000 online. You also have more betting options online. On many of the games you can play for as little as 10p or as much as £10. Just recently a player at Spin Palace hit two £20,000 wins in less than half an hour!
How do I buy credits to play and get my winnings?
All of the online casinos listed here at Fruit Machines Online feature a wide range of deposit and withdrawal methods. Probably the easiest deposit method s credit or debit card but are many other options. Withdrawals can in most cases be paid in check, refund to your debit card or for really big wins a direct bank transfer.
Can I play the games for free?
Yes, all of the games we have reviewed can be played for either real money or for free in guest mode. We have six of the Microgaming fruit machines in our FREE Games section where you can try them out instantly. To try out the Cryptologic games you first have to download free software and register an account. Remember if you play for real money you can claim a bonus.
Are the Games Fair?
Yes, if you look at the certified payout percentage reports you can easily see that with payouts of between 95% and 98% the online fruit machines offer a fair game. It is highly unlikely that big name brands like William Hill or Littlewoods would risk their reputations by having online games which were anything but 100% fair to the player.
Why are the casinos giving away bonuses?
There is so much competition among casinos that they offer bonuses to all new players to give you an incentive to try them out. Many of the casinos also offer monthly bonuses so you can cash in on some free money every month. It should be noted that you have to actually play with the free money you cannot simply withdraw it straight away.
