Slots Games for Beginners

A Beginner's Guide to Playing Slots Games

One of the nice things about slot games is that they require no thought, strategy, or effort to play. Basically you just put your money in, pull the lever, then sit back and wait to see whether you win or not. But games of chance are always more interesting when you know how to play and what's going on. Baccarat is just as much a game of random chance as most slot machines are, but if you don't understand the rules, it's just so much random nonsense that makes no sense.

So my advice to a beginning slots player is to learn a little bit about the different slot machine games that are available, and then make some decisions and thing about what your goal is as a slot machine player. Slot Machines World is one great website where you can learn a lot about the different slot games available online.

In fact, they offer a beginners guide to slot machines that I highly recommend if you're just starting out as a slot machine player.

Other Resources for Slot Machine Beginners

The Open Directory's slots sites directory is a great place to find good quality sites about slots and slot machine games. Their guide is edited by hand, and so unlike the search engines, you will only find sites that stand up to inspection by a human eye. No spammy link farms here, in other words.

There are also a couple of places online where you play free slots. Another site that I think is funny and entertaining is Monkey Slots, and you can find the entire Monkey Slots cast here. These sites are both places where you can play free slot games and enjoy all the excitement of gaming without risking any of your own money. Then once you've learned enough about which combinations pay out, and what kind of payouts you can expect, maybe you'll be ready to play for some real money. Further down the line if you feel confident enough you can even try your hand at playing in some of the slot tournaments.

A Final Piece of Advice for Slots Players

When it's not fun anymore, it's time to quit playing. Gambling and gaming is supposed to be fun, especially slot machine gaming. You might argue that poker is a contest of wills, or that blackjack is a mental test and an exercise in discipline, but slot machines, by their very nature, are ALL about fun and nothing else. And usually when you've stopped having fun, it means you've lost too much money, or you might have a problem of some sort.

But one thing's for certain. You shouldn't be playing slots if you're not having fun.
