Guide to Playing Slot Machines

Slot machines may seem simple at first, but once a player gets deeper they realize that there is much more than meets the eye. Slots Informer is here to help clear up some of the confusion around slot machines.

We have written a series of articles which act as a guide on educating the average player on how to best play slots as well as how slots work.

What most players fail to realize is that slot machines operate on random number generators. These microchips compute random numbers which determine the outcome of each spin. Each spin of a slot machine is determined at random. The software companies even go as far as programming the reels to stop in certain combinations that look like that player has just missed the jackpot. Do not be fooled into thinking that the machine is “due” for a win.

The outcome of each spin is determined the instant the player presses the spin button. A millisecond later and the outcome would be entirely different. So don’t sweat it when someone sits down at the machine you just left and wins a jackpot. There is a very large chance that you wouldn’t have pressed the spin button at the exact moment as the next guy.

There aren’t many websites that tell it like it is. Most are too worried about putting up flashy banner ads and making a quick buck to focus on actually giving readers something good to read. You will find all of our slots articles well written and laid out to be easily readable.

We occasionally add new material, so please check back often. If you are looking for reviews of actual games we recommend checking out Slots Geek. They provide an actual review of every slot that you can play online. You can find their link in the column to the left.

If you do choose to gamble online please do so responsibly. It can be very easy to get carried away when playing online slots as most casinos convert your money to coins. This can sometimes confuse players to bet more than they had planned. Please play responsibly, and only play after you have read this entire site and understand slot thoroughly.
