Hey Casinoland readers!
After getting home from a stressful work day, I knew that I needed a way to relax – there aren’t a lot of options for things to go out and do midweek, and I wanted something more interactive than a movie (which is how I’d normally pas my time), so I popped over to Casinoland!
I fired up the site, and after browsing a couple of the table games and deciding against them, I finally settled on finding a slots game to enjoy. Slots are a fantastic game for anyone who:
A) Wants to be entertained with music, animated graphics and mini-games while they play,
B) Doesn’t want to stress about making all the right moves,
C) Loves winning BIG jackpots!!
Last night, after crunching numbers and starting at Excel spreadsheets all day, I was in the mood to turn my brain off for a bit, and loved the thrill of a possible big score – so slots made perfect sense! The first thing any slots player has to do is select a game. Different games have different themes, music, bonus and payout structures. It may take some experimenting to find the right game for you, so feel free to try a few until you find one you love.
It was a dark and spooky night out, and I’d recently rewatched Blade, so the Vampire: Las Vegas game caught my eye. I was immediately drawn in by the gothic aesthetic and creepy music.
The first thing to do when you start a game of slots is decide on your bet size. This is the amount of money that you’re going to be wagering each spin. Obviously, the less you wager, the more guaranteed spins you have, but your payouts are also weighted based on the size of your wager – meaning, the more you bet: the more you stand to win! I decided to opt for $2 / spin, since it’s my first time playing the game, and I wanted to get a feel for it first.
After a few spins, I was really impressed by the game’s fluid animations, and creepy undertones. I’d lost a little bit of money, but that’s the way it is with slots – you’ll lose most of your spins, but you win – you can win BIG. Luckily, not too long into my game, I managed to land a bonus!
