SLOTS FAQ: Your Online Slots Questions Debunked

Your Top Online Slots Questions Answered

Everyone loves slots. They’re fun, sometimes naughty, good-looking, exciting, and always available for a good time.

Playing online slots games is a stimulating way to dazzle your senses and potentially win some money.  But not many know much about how it all works. Some wonder if it’s safe, and everyone wants to know how to make the entire experience more profitable. 

We’ll start with answers to some of the most frequent questions we get about online slots. Perhaps we can clarify confusions or provide some interesting facts to keep it fun, entertaining and rewarding for you. Of course, if you have any other specific questions, don’t hesitate to reach head to the Ignition Help center for more in depth casino information. We’re here to help make your Ignition Casino experience the best ever.

1. How do online slots work?

In a word: luck. Every slot game online works with a random number generator (RNG) that produces random sequences. With every spin, the RNG creates a new series of random numbers. There’s no memory, no tracker to record your wins and losses. It’s an instantaneous game whose outcomes are based on the algorithms used by the RNG. 

The difference between online slots and live slot machines is the symbols on the reels. The slot machines in an actual casino usually have only 20 different symbols per reel. Online slots offer as many as 256 combinations of symbols for millions of possibilities to win a jackpot.

The impartial algorithms we use here at Ignition produce results randomly to guarantee fairness. Our casino is well-known for being honest and trustworthy. That’s why we attract so many members.

2. Are slots really random?

Yes, absolutely. The results are totally random. Slot games don’t work on any sort of cycle or timer, and jackpots don’t suddenly come due for pay out, as some may believe. A random numbers generator is exactly as advertised. Random, haphazard, chance… got a Thesaurus?

The randomness of online slot games means they never get hot or cold, so you can rest assured that there’s no fix.

3. Which slots have the best payouts?

Every online slot machine has its own Return-To-Player (RTP) percentage, which will tell you the odds of making a profit when you play them. A high RTP means a lower house edge indicating that you have a pretty good chance of making some money.

Currently, the top ten best paying online slot games are rated anywhere between 96% and 99%. These are the slots you’re looking for, Obi-Wan.

4. How do I pick the best slot?

Understandably, it’s the payout that matters. That’s how much the game could offer in winnings. Do we have to say, “the higher, the better?” Look for progressive jackpot slots, which are well-known for winnings that have reached millions of dollars.

But don’t forget that RTP ranking we already talked about. Very important and beneficial to you if you choose games with RTPs in the high 90s.

After you’ve crunched the numbers, take some time to read the reviews on gambling forums or even YouTube. There’s a game out there for everyone… find yours!

5. Can slots be rigged?

Over the years, many players and especially non-players think that online slots can be rigged in the house’s favor. They are not. Because online slots operate with RNGs, which can’t be rigged.

Every online gaming site, like ours, is a business. The fundamental goal is to make a profit and encourage customers to come back again. We do that by assuring our players can enjoy their experience while feeling safe and protected. 

There are laws and regulations to make sure the games operate ethically and legally. You can protect yourself by only playing casinos that are licensed by a recognized body, just as we are.

6. What are jackpot slots? 

Jackpot slots are most often called progressive jackpot slots and they operate a little differently in terms of payouts. Every time you make a bet, the jackpot grows by a set amount. While progressive jackpots can reach millions of dollars, be forewarned that they are not that easy to crack.

7. Should I play progressives or regular slots? 

Depends on what you’re shooting for: the one huge, elusive payout or the old reliable, more frequent, but smaller, rewards. Sure, those progressive slots are enticing like a seven-layer cake iced in solid gold and oozing with a creamy filling of millions of dollars. Your regular slots will never let you down.

Both styles of slot games are fun and entertaining. And you can win big prizes with either one. Just keep in mind that regular slot games have fixed jackpots, while a progressive slot’s jackpot keeps growing as more money is bet.

8. What are the most popular slots at Ignition Casino?

Slots are our jam, which is why we offer so many choices – regular and progressive. Our members love the variety and the ease of play. And we try to add new slot games regularly, as soon as we feel they’re ready for public consumption.

As for most popular, there are many, but here are a few of the big favorites.

A Night with Cleo. A titillating (seriously?) 5-reel, 20-line video slot inviting you to Cleopatra’s chamber. A double-up feature is a chance at doubling your winnings and an encounter with the Queen of the Nile. As she begins her seduction, removing her robe… is it getting hot in here?

Reels & Wheels XL. Like a classic 3-reel, 1-line slot but new and improved with 5 reels and 20 lines! With more lines comes more chances to increase your bankroll. Win 12 free spins with potential re-triggers and each free spin’s random multiplier is up to 10 times.

Golden Buffalo. A wild adventure with six reels and four lines. Hit the dusty trail to hunt and capture the cagey Golden Buffalo. When you find him (her?), you could release over 4,000 ways to win and bring home a fortune!

We’ve got hundreds of slot games for you at Ignition Casino. And now that you’re up on all the ins and outs of how the online slots world works, you’re ready to play. Your best advantage is that you can play all our games for free in practice mode. Get a feel before you make the deal!
