Fruit Machine Playing Tips
|The most important thing to remember when playing fruit machines online, offline or really participating in any gambling activity is that you will not always win. You should only ever gamble with money you can afford to lose. Below we list some important tips and strategies that should help you get the best chance of winning every time you play.
Set a budget before you play
Before you sit down at a machine or load one up online you should decide exactly how much you a willing to spend for that gambling session.
Know the game
Unlike Vegas style slot machines, fruit machines require player input. If you do not know what to look for on for instance the bonus trails you will not give yourself much chance of winning. Be sure to read the game instructions and get as much information as possible.
Practice for free
Again something that is only possible with online fruit machines. It can be a good idea to try out the games for free or in guest mode to see what all of the buttons do and to see how the bonus features work. This way when you are playing fro cash you will be familiar with the games.
Go for the highest payout percentages
This is where online games beat games in pubs and clubs. With an average 25% higher payout percentage the online games will over the long term return much more of the money bet back to players which means more big wins more often.
Make the most of your nudges
It is quite common to have one really good symbol on the pay line when you get a nudge bonus. If you have the guaranteed option of getting a lower pay
then it is better to take the smaller win then to go for the possible bigger one but possibly get nothing.
Don't go for the highest jackpot
The top jackpots on fruit machines are often quite tempting but it is a fact that they will come up a lot less than the smaller wins and you will often lose wins trying to go for bigger ones. If you aim to win the smaller jackpots you will find that they can quickly add up to a nice win.
Don't chase your losses
If you find that you lose your session bankroll quickly then it is best to call it a day and try again another day. The worst thing to do is to try to bet more in order to win back what you have lost. While you might win you also have the chance of losing even more.
End your session a winner
If you do happen to get a good win make sure that you cash at least some of it out. Many players who claim that they never win on the fruit machines simply keep playing when they do win and end up losing what they have won - walk away a winner.
Play for entertainment
Fruit machines were never designed to make you rich. While there is a chance that you will win a big jackpot there is also a chance that you will lose. Play for fun and entertainment value and if you win it will be an added bonus
