Playing online slot machines? Here’s how to do it responsibly

Slot machines can be a lot of fun, but it is important to play safely and responsibly in order to enjoy the game and not lose too much money.

Over the past few years, slot machines have become the most popular game in Italian casinos and around the world. This applies to both online casinos and traditional casinos, where lovers of the genre can find physical machines with real buttons and even with the classic hand-pull lever.

Sure, you can have a lot of fun with slot machines, but it is important to play safely and responsibly in order to enjoy the game and not lose too much money. In this regard, we asked Roberto Mancini, editor for the online slots portal to share with us his tips for playing slot machines safely and responsibly.

Consider the RTP factor

RTP stands for “Return to Player” and literally translates to “Return to Player”. It is expressed as a percentage that indicates the amount of money played that returns to the players in the form of a win, for a given slot. The RTP is calculated on large numbers, therefore on a large number of plays, so every month when casinos publish actual returns, it often turns out that they have even been higher.

The RTP percentage is important because not only does it allow you to choose the slots with the highest probability of winning, but also because by law there must be minimum RTP percentages depending on who offers the game. Online slot machines, for example, have had to offer, by law, much higher RTP percentages from the beginning than physical slot machines in retailers. To view the percentage of RTP of a slot just visit the appropriate section of the casino, from the provider’s website or more easily among the slot information present in the game itself (click on the information “i” inside the slot display).

Practice without spending anything

Most of the slots come in demo mode and real mode. With the demo mode you can play slot machines for free, without spending anything, which allows you to practice and become familiar with the game and its special features and bonus games. Before spending any money on a slot, therefore, it would be advisable to try it in demo mode and understand if it has any game phases that can actually make a difference and to check its percentage of RTP via the information button.

Choose only ADM licensed casinos

If you decide to play with real money, it is essential to choose a casino that has obtained the GAD (Remote Gaming) concession issued by ADM (Customs and Monopoly Agency), the agency that decides who can operate in Italy. and who not.

ADM casinos offer a fair gaming experience with equal odds of winning for all players. These are subjected to constant checks on the actual returns to the player and on the safety of the deposited funds.

Low stakes and predetermined budget

If you decide to start playing slots for real money, it is also important to place low bets on each spin. Before making the very first spin, it is advisable to check the stake amount and make sure to set it to a minimum. The minimum bet of online slot machines starts from a few cents per spin, which can also vary according to the number of pay lines in the game. Also in this case, doing tests in demo mode will allow you to be sure you know how to set the minimum bet for the spin.

Today, ADM online casinos ask the player to set a periodic budget for their online game. This allows you not to refill immediately after any loss. It is essential to set a low budget and above all in line with one’s availability. It is common sense to choose limits that do not compromise any type of expenditure that is useful for one’s health, family, home and other needs.
