The popularity of Online Slots can be attributed to several main factors. For one, slots play is a welcome, simple diversion for many people in the complicated world of 2006. For another, the games appeal to the common human desire to get rich quick. Finally, I think players like to think they can beat the system or somehow outsmart the game. As a testament, try searching online for how to win at online slots and you’ll find no end of articles, sites and e-books dedicated to strategies for beating the games.
Let’s be honest, beyond some very simple basics, there really isn’t a lot to talk about when it comes to slots strategy. It’s just that simplicity that appeals to the Online Slots demographic. We are women (ok, and a few men) who are busy in our real lives. We have jobs, kids, carpools, meetings, and all manner of commitments that take up our time. When we have some time to ourselves, we want to unplug from the world and enjoy some entertainment that doesn’t require engaging our brains overly much. Online Slots offer an alternative to TV. Let’s face it, we don’t want to be slave to another TV series: Desperate Housewives and American Idol are quite enough, thank you!. Slots are available 24 hrs a day, for as long or as short a period of time as we choose.
Who hasn’t spent a few moments stuck in traffic or while folding laundry, daydreaming about what we’d do with a windfall of $100K? I know I have! There must be some chemical released by those thoughts… some endorphin or natural pain reliever that gives a pleasant feeling—however temporary. Slots play works the same way. The progressive jackpot slots games especially fill this urge. These games offer a big jackpot to players who bet maximum coins and hit the big combo. Players at the slot at all of the participating casinos are contributing to the jackpot until it gets hit. Now, the chances of winning that jackpot are absolutely tiny, and realistic players know that they are paying for the experience of enjoying the possibility. Deep down, they actually expect to loose, but the money they pay to play is worth it for the excitement.
Do you expect to loose when you play online slots? If not, then you may fall into the category of those who think they know how to beat the system. You’ve read all there is to read on the subject. You play with a tablet next to your keyboard to keep notes on spin numbers. You have a system and you work the system. Maybe you even win more than you loose. Maybe you do expect to loose, but you’re still beating the system… How? you take advantage of bonus offers, free spins and sign up cash. The thrill you get is from knowing that you’re getting to play slots for free and have the thrills noted above while others are paying for them. Good for you!
Here’s hoping that you’re aware of your motivation for playing the online slots and that you are realistic about your expectations. Here’s hoping that you are able to see the price you pay for the returns you get. And… here’s hoping that those returns are bringing you happiness in whatever form that takes.
