"Secrets to Winning Big"
- by Chip S. Inman, editor Online Casino Bonus
If you're looking to win big playing at online casinos, you must
first know what you're up against. Before settling down to play,
take a minute to learn the rules and odds of your favorite game(s).
This will help reduce the house's edge, and give you more chances
to win in the long run.
Second, the two things that most big winners have in common are
bankroll and betting style. A well-funded bankroll
will provide you with more opportunities to win. Even though everyone
has heard miraculous stories like the one about the guy from Arizona
who won tens of millions playing the Megabucks progressive slot
in Las Vegas after only putting in 20, but the reality is that
it will likely take many more credits in order to win a sizable
payout. In a few words, don't be chintzy, be realistic.
The odds of winning any progressive game are high to begin with,
so an under-funded bankroll is a recipe for disappointment.
Also, bet aggressively. Online casinos are
very much like land casinos when it comes to payout rates. The
higher your bet, the looser the odds. Slots players know that
the 5 credit machines payout at a much higher rate than the 0.25
credit machines. I've spent hours (if not days) playing at nearly
fifty different online casinos, and experience has taught me that
bigger bets = bigger payouts. Yes, you will have more on the line,
so always remember to stay within a preset comfort zone. However,
what the casinos won't tell you is that if you want a real chance
of bringing home some real loot, stay away from the small wagers!
Over time, tiny bets will only eat into your bankroll (due to
vastly decreased payout odds), and this will cause you to leave
sooner than you desire - and likely empty-handed. If you're not
willing to lay some cash down to achieve your gambling goals,
then you probably should find another hobby.
If you don't believe me, try this out just for an
example... take 500-1,000 that you are not going to miss, and
make a purchase at your preferred casino. Now, instead of playing
the quarter slots, or betting 5/hand at video poker or blackjack,
play 5 credits per spin X 3 coins at the slot machines, or 20
credits per hand at video poker. I guarantee that well before
your bankroll has been exhausted, you will score some kind of
sizable gain, be it a 300 credit jackpot, or even a natural royal
flush. Here is where you quit playing! If you continue to play
after a big win, the casino will suck your bankroll dry. Force
yourself to do a cashin, even if you're down 100 credits. Waiting
a day or two for the next session dramatically improves your chances
at scoring again. This style of play will ultimately put you in
the running for attaining that huge payout. This is the way that
high rollers the world over play, and should be utilised whenever
