Many people enjoy playing slots at their local casino or when they go on vacation around the world. Did you know that you can now play them online from your home too? Here is some information about how to play without leaving the comfort of your favorite chair. All you need is a computer and Internet connection.
You have hundreds of choices when it comes to playing slot machines online. There are many different software platforms offering everything from 3 reel and 5 reel machines to video, bonus and jackpot progressive payouts. You can choose from downloading an entire software suite including hundreds of games or just play the no download version which opens your favorite game in your computer screen window without more than a free account and the click of the mouse.
Here is how to get started. Search online using one of the main search engines like Google or Yahoo for “online slots”. Once you find a place to play, either just sign up for a free account if you don’t want to download the games or download the free software and then register for an account. You usually just need an email to create an account and it won’t take more than a few minutes.
Once you have the software and an account, all you have to do is search through all of the different slot machines to find one you want to try. You will have a play money balance that you can use to test a bunch of different machines, so have fun and be sure to try as many as you want. The best thing about playing for free is if you run out of money you can just reload your account and start playing again.
All of the possible choices can get a bit overwhelming, so I usually suggest starting with a simple old fashioned three reel machine. Most people are somewhat familiar with these types of games and they are easy to play and understand. Once you start playing the multi line and multi reel video slots it is easy to get confused. A 3 reel slot machine will only have 3 different wheels inside and a limited number of symbols. The most well known machines have pictures of fruit. Popular fruit machines have cherries and oranges amongst other fruits. Simply get three of the same fruit to line up across the center pay line and you win.
