Slots Terms to Understand- Part 1

In the world of slots gaming you are going to hear a few terms and have to know what they mean. Remember that slots are simple games- there isn’t a lot of honing skill or studying strategy to them. That is one of the main draws of the games. Gamblers know that these are the games they can have a lot of gaming fun with, without years of study. For example, if you want to master blackjack you are in for a good learning curve. There is a strategy to learn and to use carefully. Some top blackjack players have spent years honing their skill as gamers. Sure they are winning now, but ask them what they were doing when they first started! Most likely they will tell you they were losing. Slots gaming is not like that. With slots, a new player can jump in and start winning. Every outcome depends on luck and whether or not a gamer has it. If they do, they win. If they don’t, they lose.

Still, with slots there are some terms to know. One of the most important is “wager requirement.” In slots you are going to have to wager a certain amount every time you spin the reels. You can find some games at a casino that only require a penny to play and others that require $20 and upwards. The games you choose are going to depend on your bankroll limits and how lucky you are feeling. Always be sure to check games and see what their wager requirement is. Two games can look surprisingly similar but have completely different wager requirements. Read the game’s label and find out what the limits are. Another term you should know when playing the slots is the “bankroll.” This is a term that all gamblers should be familiar with. It is defined as the total amount of money a gambler brings with him or her to the casino. You should always count on losing– the House always wins for a reason. The odds are just in their favor. You could get lucky and win, but most likely you are going to walk away with nothing but a good gaming experience. Set your bankroll limit at what you can afford to lose and you won’t have to worry about losing too much.
