1. How do online slots work? How are they different from traditional slot machines?

Online slots are all about luck. The spinning reels and symbols change after every spin, so there’s always a chance to land a winning combination. 

The difference between online slots and live slot machines is in the symbols on the reels. The slot machines in a casino usually have only 20 different symbols per reel. Today’s online casinos power their slot machine operations with computer software. That means they can offer as many as 256 symbol combinations. These result in millions of possible combinations lining up for a potential jackpot.

At Ignition, we use impartial algorithms that produce random results to assure fairness. In fact, we are known for the honesty that drives all our decisions and actions with our slot games. It’s the reason we attract and keep so many members.

2. Can I win money playing online slots?

Oh yeah! Online slots can be highly rewarding, often more than traditional machines in a live casino. You choose your game, bet your money, spin the reels, and win cash prizes when your luck hits. We’re talking real US dollars, too. When you want to go full digital, you can choose to play with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin.

Keep in mind that you have no actual control over the slot results. It’s not about timing, the weather or lucky charms. The computer decides when to stop at random, although some games allow you to stop the reels. Your control is in how much you’re willing to risk and when you want to switch games. It’s just like a lottery except, instead of once a week, month or year, slots like ours operate 24/7.

3. Can I trust online casinos and gambling sites?

Some, yes. Others, maybe not. Ignition? Rest assured. You will know you’re playing a trustworthy online casino when you see the padlock icon before the website’s URL. Like many trusted websites, Ignition’s standards for online security are very high. We use a Secure Socket Layer (SSL), marked by the “https” in our web address, to encrypt your private information. We don’t share that info with anyone

Ignition casino is certified as a safe and secure site for all kinds of players. Our operations are legal and trustworthy. 

We offer more than more than just our good reputation and excellent customer service. We go the extra mile with a license from Curaçao Gaming, an esteemed regulating authority that assesses casino security and fair play. Their audits of our equipment and software, like the Random Number Generators (RNGs) we use, have certified them as truly random. 

You can log-on and play knowing that we’re here to offer a fun gambling experience with zero foul play.

4. Are online casino games rigged?

No. And we wouldn’t last a minute in this business if they were. In fact, no one would. Think about the hundreds of millions of gamers playing in online casinos every day. Any hint of unfair practices would spread like wildfire and shut down the criminals immediately.

5. Which casino games pay the best?

There are many, but the top three are blackjack, slot games and roulette. Blackjack consistently pays the highest and often has the lowest house edge at under 0.2%. Of course, if you’re not a strategic player, blackjack may not be your friend.

Slot games can offer high payouts because there are so many to choose from. Look for games with high Return-To-Player (RTP) percentages. These are just like Return-On-Investment (ROI) in business. If you regularly play slots with RTPs in the 96% to 99% range, you’re going to win some money.

Online roulette is a random numbers game. You can’t win every round, but you can increase your winning chances by focusing only on bets that offer the best odds to win. We recommend you go with European roulette and favor outside rather than inside bets. Biggest piece of advice? Play a ton of practice games to get the feel.

6. What casino games have the best chance of winning?

Again, blackjack with odds of winning around 49%. It’s easy and the house edge is always in your favor. Next would be craps with winning odds at almost 50%, as long as you choose the version with a low house edge anywhere between 1.5% and 5%.

Lastly, roulette odds of winning are also near 50%. You can increase your payouts by lowering the odds and wagering on specific numbers or ranges.

7. Can you combine casino promotions/bonuses?

At Ignition, we are especially proud of the generous promotions and bonuses we keep on giving. In some cases, we will match deposits, especially when you play with cryptocurrency. Bring your friends on board and we’ll help them get started with a bonus. Of course, you also get a reward for the recommendation.

8. Are online casino winnings taxed? 

Yes, but not from us. Your online gambling winnings are fully taxable but you must declare them. Ignition does not submit any of your personal info to the government. If you would like to personally declare your winnings, you’d have to submit proof, like receipts, showing total amounts won and lost.

9. What are the best casino promotions bonuses and rewards?

Ignition casino promotions are crazy generous, and offer some of the best rewards and bonuses in the industry. To start, we welcome you with an enticing welcome bonus offer to get you started on the right foot, as well as generous incentives if you deposit with Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. Feel free to browse through our section of promotions to find the best suited for you.
