Guide To Playing Online Fruit Machines
|If you are a regular fruit machine player at your local pub or club but have not yet tried playing fruit machines on the Internet then this guide should help you get started. We cover everything from choosing an online casino to depositing, playing and if your luck is in withdrawing your winnings.
Choosing an Online Casino
At the moment there are are over an estimated 1,000 online casinos but not all of them have fruit machine and not all of them are reputable. Here at this site we have done all of the research for you and made sure that every casino is licensed, has fair games and is repuatble.We have actually played at all of the casinos and have withdrawn our winnings with no problems.
The choices for the online fruit machine player are somewhat limited. You have either Microgaming casinos that have six different machines or Wagerlogic casinos that have three machines. We are informed that new games will be added on a regular basis and we will have the reviews up as soon as they come online. For more details visit our UK Online Casinos page.
Joining a Casino
Once you have selected an online casino you need to open an account. It really goes without saying but you have to be 18 years or older to gamble online so if you are under this age you should not proceed. Opening an account is different from casino to casino but in most cases you simply enter you details such as name and address and go from there.
At the Wagerlogic casinos such as William Hill you first have to download their FREE software but at the Microgaming casinos where the games are on the flash casinos you simply open the flash casino and click the register button. If you have any trouble all of the sites have a help section that covers all of the most frequent questions.
Making a Deposit
Unlike at a pub or club you cannot simply insert coins into a machine online. You have to first make a purchase of credits. You can purchase as much or as little as you want and it will stay in your account until either you withdraw it or you lose it. All of the casinos listed on this site will also give you a bonus when you make your first purchase of credits.
There are a variety of ways to make a purchase at all of the casinos we list. These include credit and debit cards as well as web wallets such as NETeller. All of the casinos offer secure transactions using the latest industry encryption and security methods.
Claiming Your Welcome Bonus
As we said above, when you join a new casino for the first time you will be eligible to claim a welcome bonus. This is one of the great things about playing online - When was the last time you walked into a pub and they gave you free money to play their machines? Each site has a different bonus and different conditions for the bonus so be sure to read them before you deposit to ensure you get the maximum amount of free money on offer.
Playing the Fruit Machines
Now you have money in your account and you are ready to play. Simply select the game you want to play via the software and the game will load. We suggest clicking the "Help" or "Instructions" button at this time and reading all of the game rules and features. This way you won't miss out on any good jackpots because you did not know what to look for.
Once you are familiar with the game you are ready to go. Press spin and you are on your way to the possibility of big fruit machine jackpots from the comfort of your own home!
Withdrawing Your Winnings
If you get lucky and get a big win you will want to withdraw your cash. Each casino has a slightly different withdrawal process but in general you go the the banking or cashier section of the software and click the Withdraw button. You can then choose how you would like your winnings to be paid. For really fast withdrawals William Hill offers cash outs at any William Hill betting shop.
One thing that you should always keep in mid when doing any form of gambling is that fact that you can lose money and will not always win. Only ever play with money that you can afford to lose and try to play for the entertainment rather than to get rich. This way you will always get value for your money whether you win or lose.
