Play Penny Slots

Penny slots are multi-line slot machines in which you have the opportunity to bet on multiple lines at once. Here are some tips for playing penny slots so you can make the most of your chances each time you play.

Bonus Features

Penny slots have two types of bonus features that may be activated when you hit a certain number of “scatter” symbols on the machine. The Help button on the machine can give more information about how to qualify for the bonus features. There are usually two types of bonus features, On Reel Bonuses and Off Reel Bonuses.

Playing for Pennies

Despite the name, penny slots can be very expensive to play. While there is a higher chance of winning with all the different line options, there is also a chance of winning less than your initial bet. That means you could be losing money over time, even though you’re hitting on certain lines.

The best strategy is to use the smallest bet possible across the greatest number of lines. You’ll need combinations of lines to come out ahead. Varying your bets by placing more on certain lines and less on others is likely to lose you money, even if you hit on some lines.

Getting an Edge

If the casino you play slots at offers bonuses, take them up on it. Free food, free rooms and free slots play are all routinely offered to regular players. Pay attention to the amount of money you are willing to spend or lose, and don’t spend more to try to get back what you lost. That will only increase your losses.

Look for the machines with the highest payout percentage and try those. Bet the maximum number of lines for the least amount per line, so you don’t blow your whole bankroll at once. The more lines you play, the higher your hit rate for potential wins.

If you win, use what you’ve won to add to the amount you bet the next time. Or pocket the extra and keep playing with the amount you started with. The goal is to have fun and spend time playing, so don’t blow your money too quickly.
