Beginners Guide to Online Slots
Types of Slots - As with land based slots there are different types of online slots games and they can be broken down into numerous categories. These are Classic Slots, 5 Reel Slots, Progressive Slots, Slots with Bonus Features and Games, Multi Payline Slots, Multi Spin and Fruit Machines. We have created a section about each type of online slots game and on the main page of that section we have highlighted the key features.
It is possible and in fact very common for a slots game to be more than one type of slot and to keep it simple for you on all of our slots review pages we have links to the categories that game fits into across the top of the page.
Are Online Slots Safe? - The answer to this is it all depends on where you play. If you play at a trusted licensed online casino you will be fine. We only feature the very best online casinos on this site in terms of safety and security. You can view a list of Safe Online Casinos in our forum and can see our criteria to be SlotsJam.com approved.
Which Online Casino Should I choose? - That depends on what you want from the casino. Whilst there are thousands of online casinos out there many very good ones and some you want to avoid there are not that many really good software providers. So you will often find a number of casinos that offer the same games even though they have different management and promotions. This is part of our reasoning behind having a Software Providers section as if you find you like the games from that software you can then compare a few of the casinos that offer those games.
If it's slots you are interested in we would suggest you check out our Casino Reviews page there you will see we have given an overview of each casinos key features and sign up bonus. You can then click on any of the casinos to read our full review and on each casino review page we have given you a lot of slots related information including the max and minimum slots bets at that casino and have even listed all the slots games that casino has to offer.
If you are a total beginner and NOT in the USA then we recommend Platinum Play Casino, it is the most beginner friendly online casino we have found and features interactive game tutorials, live on screen chat with a member of their support team and a 24 hour free phone support number. Plus they have been voted Best Casino for Beginners by our forum members.
As Platinum Play Casino does not accept US Players, we recommend that if you are a beginner and in the USA you use SlotoCash Casino which is very easy to use and provides excellent player support so if you have any issues there will always be someone to help you out.
Can I play for free? - Yes, all the casinos featured on this site have a free play option. When you download the casinos software and install it you will be asked to register, when you do this be sure to put in all your real details otherwise if you choose to play for real at a later stage and win you could have trouble getting your winnings back out. When registering select a guest account, some casinos also call this practice mode or a play account or demo account.
How to I deposit money? - Unlike a land based casino, online casinos don't have a cashier sitting behind bars so instead you will need to click on the 'Cashier' or 'Bank' button. If you are playing in practice mode you may need to select 'play for real' first. Once you are at the cashier or bank you will be offered a number of ways you can credit your casino account. These will vary from casino to casino but they will only offer you safe secure options. You simply choose the option you prefer and deposit the amount you want.
What if I need more help? - All good online casinos have free phone numbers you can call for help if you are having difficulty depositing, or even understanding the rules to one of their games or competitions. So make use of them, they all also have email addresses and some have live instant chat style support. If you need more help choosing an online casino that would be suitable for you or if there are other questions you would have liked to have seen answered on this page please feel free to contact us.
