Once you select the online slot game and fix the betting parameters, and there are no further material choices to be made. You click the spin button and the slot machine does the rest. You can choose to customize the slot machine by adjusting the audio parameters or the speed of the game, but these do not affect the payouts. In many of the bonus games you are asked to pick objects for payouts. These payouts are awarded randomly and do not depend on the objects chosen. In some of the contemporary online slot games you get to choose from a set of free spins. These choices have been equalized to offer the same average return. There is no advantage in choosing a particular combination over another.

Therefore the most important choices are made before you click the spin button. One of the betting parameters is the number of paylines. Though you may have a choice, you should always activate all the paylines. In some cases this is a necessary condition for hitting the progressive jackpot or activating a feature in the slots machine. Even otherwise you may miss out on payouts because winning combinations on inactive paylines do not pay. The coin denomination and the number of coins wagered per pay line determine the line bet. This selection has to be made based on your bankroll. In almost all slot games the probability of getting a winning combination does not depend on the amount wagered. However, in some slot machines with randomly triggered progressive jackpots, the probability of hitting the jackpot is higher with larger wagers. Therefore, there is not much point in playing these games with small line bets.

Selecting which slot machine to play on is perhaps the most important decision in slots wagering. It is also the most difficult because there is little information available upfront. Most online slot machines would provide an average return of about 95%. But some machines would provide larger payouts that occur less frequently and others would provide more frequently occurring smaller payouts. The first type of slot machines are referred to as volatile and are suitable for players who do not mind risking their bankroll in the quest for large payouts. The best indication is the largest line payout in the payout table. If this is around 10,000 coins and then the slot machine is likely to be volatile. However, if the largest line payout is about 1,000 coins and then the slot machine would be conservative. Expert players wager on newly released slot machines in the free mode to get the judgment of the volatility and then take a call whether to play with real money or not.
