Many people think that playing in a virtual casino is a kind of prestigious, gambling and expensive holiday. And it’s true. But the statement that it is impossible to earn money by fighting with a gambling establishment is a lie. You can beat the casino, you just need to avoid making mistakes. We will tell you about the three most important ones.
Not knowing the variance level of the slot machine
Most visitors to online casinos believe that to win a particular slot, they only need to know the percentage of payouts in this game. In fact, in addition to this parameter, you also need to know the level of its variance. This term came to the world of gambling from mathematical statistics. It describes the frequency and amount of payouts. In other words, the variance determines the level of risk in the game.
And if you can find out the amount of payouts in the casino itself or on the developer’s website, then you will not be able to find out the amount of variance. It’s a big mystery. However, you can determine this parameter independently based on a number of indirect signs. To do this, you must::
- Play the slot machine for free or using no Deposit bonuses. After hundreds of spins, certain statistics will accumulate. It needs to be disassembled. If the prize combinations appeared frequently, but their size was small — the variance level of this slot machine is low. Conversely, if the winnings were infrequent, but they were large — the risk value on this slot is high;
- Analyze the difference in payouts for 3, 4 and 5 symbol combinations. If they don’t differ significantly from each other, you can win on this slot machine.;
- Find out if there is a wild symbol in the game and its behavior. If it takes up the entire screen when it appears — it means that prize combinations will be formed frequently;
- Analyze the jackpot amount. The larger it is, the harder it will be to win in this gambling battle. Especially if the main prize is formed using a progressive system.
Tip: in addition to collecting information about variance, you need to play for free on online slot machines in order to improve your professionalism and learn self-control.
Every online casino has its own reward system for players. This can be a doubling of the Deposit during registration or a bonus from the casino for depositing money in a certain way. Or a very rare cash back bonus that guarantees a refund of part of the loss, or a no Deposit bonus from the casino.
But you need to be very careful when receiving prizes and gifts, since their use is stipulated by a special condition — a wager. And it may happen that it is more correct to refuse the bonus than to accept it. To understand whether it is profitable for the player or not, you need to find out the following information::
- The main condition for wagering the bonus is the need to place bets on a certain amount. Its value depends on the wager coefficient. The higher it is, the more money you will need to bet. The coefficient of 50 indicates that to withdraw the bonus from the casino, you need to place bets in the amount of 50 times more than the Deposit. Knowing the payout percentage in the slot machine, it is easy to understand that it is simply unprofitable to win back such a gift. The most loyal bonuses to the player are those with a wager coefficient of up to 40. The smaller it is, the better;
- But in addition to the wager, when receiving a bonus, you must pay attention to other conditions. Some online casinos stipulate that a gift can be wagered by playing on certain slot machines. The payout percentage in this slot may be low and the minimum bet may be high. Alternatively, you can win back a gift by playing the online lottery;
- There is a type of promotion called “bonus-Velcro”. By definition, you cannot withdraw this money from the Deposit. You can only use the bonus to play, and then return it back to the casino. “Velcro” is just a useful tool that you need to give to its owner after use.
Tip: to avoid disappointment, you should be extremely careful when receiving bonuses and gifts at an online casino.
Stereotypes of consciousness
These social programs deprive novice players of the chance to win. You can’t beat the casino. That’s what any loser who loses will say. But it is good that the player who hit the jackpot of 17.9 million euros on January 13, 2013 did not know this. He committed this legal robbery of an online casino on the Mega Fortune slot machine, released by NetEnt.
And in 2012, Antonio Esfandiari won $ 18.3 million at a poker tournament organized by casino Rio. He turned professional and turned his passion for gambling into a lot of money. To beat online casinos, you only need to know how to increase your chances of winning.
- Roulette is considered the most unpredictable game. Therefore, she is called the “Queen of excitement”. But even in it, you can win if you choose the right version of the game. There are three types of roulette: American, European and French. In the first case, payments amount to 94.74%, in the second – 97.3%, and in the third-98.35%;
- When playing online slot machines, you can increase your chances of winning if you master your bankroll management skills and develop your own game strategy. Because well-publicized game systems like Fibonacci, d’alembert martingale or Parlay are only good in theory. In a real gambling battle, they are useless;
- But to minimize the impact of blind chance on winning, you need to learn how to play blackjack or online poker. It’s not easy, but it’s prestigious and very profitable. They regularly host international tournaments with a multi-million prize pool.
You can master the skills of blackjack or poker with the help of educational literature or computer training programs.
Tip: you need to take self-education in online gambling battles very seriously. Because the amount of money that a player withdraws from his account directly depends on his professional level.
Now that you know how to avoid making mistakes in an online casino, it’s time to choose a game that suits your taste and start hunting for the jackpot. Good luck!
