Are you getting the most out of your online casino slot experience? Slots play so intuitively that a lot of people don't think about ways to maximize their sessions. If that's you, don't worry—we've compiled a list of five real money online slots tips to improve your slots games at Ignition Casino. We'll start this online slots guide with an explanation of how slot bonuses work and then move on to understanding online slots basics such as payouts, jackpots, bankroll management and game type.




Slots Bonuses and Promotions

It's no secret: online casino slots players get the most rewarding bonuses in the business. If you're not taking advantage of them, it's time to get acquainted with these bankroll boosters.


Match Bonuses

The majority of online slots bonuses are “match bonuses,” meaning the casino matches the amount you deposit—up to a maximum. The size of the match bonus is a percentage of your deposit, so a 50% match bonus is half the size of your deposit, while, a 100% match bonus is the same size as your deposit.

New players at Ignition Casino can take advantage of our Poker & Casino Welcome Bonus, which is a 200% match bonus up to a maximum of $2,000 for use in the casino or the poker room. And if you deposit via Bitcoin earn 300% up to $3,000 Poker & Casino Welcome Bonus when depositing with Bitcoin (150% Poker up to $1,500 Poker, 150% up to $1,500 Casino).


No-Deposit Bonus

Every so often, no-deposit bonuses come up. These are small amounts of cash that you can scoop up without having to deposit anything into your account. Make sure you're signed up for our mailing list, or you could miss out on no-deposit bonuses that occasionally get distributed to our casino players.




Rollover Requirements

All bonuses at our casino come with rollover requirements (also called playthrough). This is a stipulated amount of times you must wager the bonus money through the casino while playing. For example, a 35X rollover requirement means you must wager the bonus money 35 times before withdrawing it and any winnings associated with it. This is the only way to ensure that the bonus money isn't immediately withdrawn and collected without using it in the casino first. To find the rollover requirement, check the Terms and Conditions of the bonus. You can also track its progress under the Active Bonuses section of your profile.


Check the Payouts

Every online slot game at our casino is unique, and so are the payouts associated with it. For example, Ares: The Battle of Troy has a maximum payout of 6,250 coins, while Global Cup Soccer has a maximum payout of 2,500 coins (not including bonus payouts). These discrepancies make comparing paytables a worthwhile practice before settling on a game to play.


Hunt for Big Jackpots

The maximum payout listed on a slot game's paytable can't compare to the burgeoning progressive jackpots included in some slot games. These can be triggered by landing the top winning combination in the game, or randomly, as is the case with Random Progressive Jackpots.




If the potential to win big is your top priority for playing, compare the progressive jackpots of several games and go for the biggest one. It's easy to compare progressive jackpots at Ignition Casino, as you can filter through the games using the “Progressive” drop-down menu on the Slots Games page.


Bankroll Management

Bankroll management at our casino is the cornerstone of a solid slot strategy. The only way to land a jackpot is to play, and you can't play if you run out of funds. To protect your bankroll, determine how much you want to spend before you play online slots for real money; this will give you an idea of what kind of slot game you should be playing. Since most real money slots games require a bet per line, games with more paylines cost more than games with fewer paylines. Terracotta Wilds, a 5-reel, 100-line slot, costs at least $1 per spin, whereas Heroes' Realm, a 3-reel, 1-line slot costs at least a penny per spin here at ignition casino.

You must use strategy when it comes to managing your online bankroll . Here are three ways to control cost while playing. First, you can adjust the number of coins bet per line; some games let you choose between 1 to 10 coins. Second, you can adjust the coin denominations, with most games offering denominations that range from $0.01 to $0.25 and beyond. Third, certain slots let you choose how many paylines you want to activate.

It's important to note that some jackpots are available only when you bet max, and that means betting the most coins possible. So if you're trying to figure out how to prioritize your betting configurations, increasing the number of coins staked is your best bet.




Find the Right Slot

Part of having a great slot experience comes from choosing the best online slot game for you, but how do you choose? There are so many different kinds of online slots, it would take forever to check each game's specs. Fortunately, there are standard ways to categorize online slot games, making narrowing down the options quick and easy.

In our slot drop-down menu, you can filter through the online slot games in the following nine ways: New Games, i-Slots, Real-Series, Video Slots, 3D Slots, Progressives, Three Reels, Rival Games and Five Reels. Once you learn about each category, you can begin to figure out what kind of slots appeal to you.


New Games

Seasoned slot players check the New Games section before they play anything else. This is where all the new releases are kept, and they often include interesting new formats.



An i-Slot is as close to a video game as you can get. The bonus rounds test your skills, and most games have numerous levels that you can play and progress through.



Real-Series is a 2D old school slot brand with a big online following. Their games include random jackpots and some of the best RTPs in the industry.


Video Slots

Video graphics are on full display in the Video Slots section of our casino. Most have introductory clips that set the stage for the game's theme.




3D Slots

To see just how far slot graphics have come, check out and play in the 3D Slots section. The graphics pop from the backgrounds, creating a cinematic experience.



Progressive jackpots are funded by a portion of every bet placed on the game while you play , so they can build quickly. For a quick way to round up all the progressive jackpot slots in our casino, use the “Progressives” filter.


Three Reels

Reels are the vertical columns that icons spin around while you play. Most slots come with three or five of them. The 3-reel games are easier to follow and more beginner friendly.


Rival Games

Rival is another popular slot brand, with a game selection that far surpasses that of the Real-Series brand. A lot of the Rival games have five reels, scatters, free spins, bonus rounds and wilds.


Five Reels

Five-reel slots can accommodate more paylines than their three-reel counterparts, so you trigger wins more often. These types of slots also have lots of bonus features included, making them extra stimulating for seasoned players.




With these categories in mind, you can sift through the slot game selection with ease, narrowing down on games with big jackpots and competitive payouts. Keep in mind your pre-determined bankroll budget, and play online slots the way they're meant to be played: for enjoyment and payout potential.
