How to Choose the Best Paying Slot Machine

Slot machines are many people’s favorite and can have someone hooked in an instant, but what they may not realize until it’s too late is that they are playing on a low payout machine. This is why so many people become frustrated and quit after only a few times of spinning and miss out on the potential best paying slot machine. This is easy to miss since there are so many different types of slots out there.


When playing online, the player needs to think of the lobbies like those of a real life casino. The easiest part is figuring out what sparks your interest. This interest could be in how many reels the machine has (3, 5, or 9), the pay lines (between 1 and 20), or the theme of the slots (Jungle, places, circus, etc.). After choosing the lobby that is the most appealing, it’s time to find out how to choose the best paying slot machine.

A good rule to remember is to try to bet the maximum amount since the payout will be higher and value and is likely to happen more often as well. Plus, most machines will provide bonuses just for betting as many coins as possible. The only time that this may be a bad idea is if there are 20 pay lines and the machine is $0.25 coins or above since the player will end up paying at least $5 per turn. This may not seem like much at first, but it can add up and cause a person to run out of money quick. Keep an eye on the number of pay lines in order to have the ability to play for longer.


The payout value of the machine also indicates how much and how often it pays out. The smaller the payout value, the more often it will payout. The only downside to these payouts is that they are smaller and are mainly used to keep the player going for a longer length of time. The higher valued machines will pay out less often, but the player is more likely to get ahead and maybe even win the jackpot eventually.

If the normal slot machines aren’t working as well as the player feels that they should, then he/she may want to check out progressive slots. Progressive slots may be the best paying slot machine since they share the jackpot with other machines. These machines could be hosted in the same lobby or on the same website, or they could even be somewhere totally different, but still be attached on the same network of the one the individual is playing on. The way the progressive slots work is that each time someone bets, a small percentage of that amount is added to the overall jackpot. Sometimes these jackpots can accumulate to cash amounts that top even one million dollars. Although the chances of actually lining up the right symbols is slim, players still flock to progressive slot machines just for the chance of winning.
