Being a newcomer to online slots is confusing. There is always something new to discover whenever it pertains to playing online. Here is a simple guide to show you how to play and provide you with unique information. With helpful insights on the game’s various components, as well as a few helpful hints, you’ll learn how to play quickly.

 

For the novices:

Slot machines are ideal for online gaming since they are fast to learn and simple to use. Even for those who like to place an online bet on football or cricket, playing slots is a nice way to enjoy playing something else while still betting. Regardless of whether you’re inexperienced in playing online slots, follow the detailed instructions below, and you’ll soon be playing efficiently and effectively.

  • Choose the game on your device.  There’ll be wheels for your slot machine and control buttons like “spin” and “max bet”. Your bankroll will also be visible.
  • Check the paytable for the game. You’ll see the value of each symbol and determine what items to look for.
  • Make your wager and the number of paylines you wish to play. For all of the paylines at once, click the “max bet” option.
  • For the reels to spin, click “spin.” Your winnings will always be visible. You can bet if you have won and it allows you to play a bonus game and win larger payouts.
  • Spin as long as you like, but be aware of your money, spend it wisely and set a daily/monthly limit.

Knowing your game

As game manufacturers strive to make new slots that are more fascinating and engaging, they are becoming more and more intricate. Introducing new symbols like wilds and scatters to trendy online slot machines is one of the most significant modifications.

Although they may initially seem a little intimidating, wilds and scatters may be quite helpful to your game if you know how to utilise them.

Bonus Rounds

Bonus rounds are extra game stages that are available in several slots. They give you an additional chance to boost your wins and make the game more interesting. Bonus rounds are like getting a penalty in football.

Free spins, mini-games, and gambling/risk options are just a few examples of the many different bonus rounds on offer. Unless unlocked by completing particular game-specific objectives, they are often activated by the appearance of bonus symbols. These winning symbols are designed to appear to players totally at random, although players can activate them through specific achievements.

Wilds

If you enjoy playing online casino games, you have probably heard the phrase “wilds”. The term “wild card” is frequently used to describe a card that players may use in place of any other card the player may choose to score a victory. It’s kind of like a wild card in poker. The connotation is the same when referring to slots.

Slot machine operators employ wild symbols to provide players with the possibility to build a successful line by exchanging their wild symbols for any missing symbols. Understanding how including wild symbols in a game is advantageous for players is simple.

Wilds can be pretty much anything in slots. They can be dynamic, static or even trigger events. Look out for wilds which add bonus rounds to enhance your playing experience.

These are just a few simple things to remember when playing online slots. There are many different games out there, so it’s a good idea to shop around for what’s right for you.

Belgium gambling survey: Legality vs. Illegality

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

In a recent study commissioned by the Belgium Gambling Commission and conducted by Ipsos, 1,000 young individuals aged between 18 and 30 were surveyed. The findings shed light on intriguing aspects of how the youth perceive and participate in gambling activities.

 

Legality vs. Illegality

The research indicates that legal gambling sites are considerably more recognised among the youth. A 93% of respondents claim they can identify at least one legal gambling site by its name. In contrast, only 44% admit they can name an illegal site.

However, an interesting twist emerges when considering the top 10 most recognised gaming sites: 6 belong to legal providers, while 4 are illegal. This suggests that even if young people are aware of legal platforms, illegal ones still manage to capture their attention.

Moreover, using the example of one of the most regulated and established gambling markets — the UK — the popularity of unregulated casinos remains high, according to a study by Govan Thompson from Spelcasino.

 

Gambling: Who’s Playing and How Often?

Over half of the participants (53%) have gambled at least once in the past three years. Notably, men seem to be more active in this arena, with 65% having gambled compared to 41% of women.

Most of these players (62%) indulge in gambling no more than once a month. However, a small yet significant 13% admit to daily gambling habits.

 

Choosing the Gaming Platform

An overwhelming majority of players (90%) prefer legal gaming sites. Yet, 33% confess to having played on illegal platforms. Interestingly, 36% of respondents admit they don’t discern a difference between legal and illegal sites.

 

The Influence of Advertising

The advertising of gambling remains a contentious issue. 42% of those surveyed advocate for a complete ban on gambling advertisements, and a quarter acknowledge the influence of such advertising on their gaming behaviour. Amongst active players, this figure rises sharply to 70%.

In conclusion, the Ipsos study offers a profound understanding of the youth’s relationship with gambling. These insights could pave the way for further discussions on the regulation of gambling and its advertising in this domain.

AOJND, President Odeta Nestor - Clarifications Regarding Information Appeared in the Media
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

BUCHAREST – Odeta Nestor, President of the Association of Remote Gambling Operators (AOJND), has provided insights into the current state of the remote gambling sector in Romania.

Asociatia Operatorilor de Jocuri de Noroc la Distanta (AOJND) represents the principal licensed remote gambling operators in Romania. “AOJND maintains ongoing dialogue with authorities to find the most optimal legislative and regulatory solutions, catering to the interests of gamblers, the industry, and the Romanian economy at large,” asserted Odeta. “In this role, our activities align with other trade associations in various industries operating legally in Romania, whether in banking, telecommunications, or HORECA.”

Regarding the draft law currently under discussion in the Chamber of Deputies, initiated by Deputy Alfred Simonis, Odeta clarified, “We have not taken any stance as it contains no provisions regarding the activities of remote gambling operators.”

Since the establishment of the National Gambling Office (ONJN) in 2013, priority has been accorded to eradicating unfair competition from unlicensed and unauthorized operators. “In our view, the black market is now at its lowest since the revolution, as there are legal controls and regulations in place,” emphasized Odeta.

Odeta added that in Romania, only local operators or those from the European Union or the European Economic Area can hold operating licenses. “Their activities are strictly monitored by the National Gambling Office, which has direct access to game servers through a dedicated platform. Moreover, operators maintain mirror and backup servers on Romanian territory, complying with existing legal provisions.”

She emphasized that all systems undergo audits by independent bodies licensed by the Romanian state, ensuring that transactions are correctly recorded and all safety and responsible gambling standards are met. “Currently, remote gambling adheres to the highest standards of transparency and integrity, with a 100% tax collection rate.”

Odeta praised the progress made in the regulatory landscape of online gambling since 2013, with Romania now being cited as a benchmark for best practices in the sector, having 30 licensed operators for remote gambling.

She pledged the association’s full cooperation to the Romanian Government to thwart the advent of illegal offshore operators and to improve public perception of the sector. “We also agree more needs to be done to protect players and to promote gambling as a form of entertainment, not a get-rich-quick scheme.”

Odeta also highlighted the industry’s initiatives in responsible gambling, preventing abusive gaming, and addiction, with AI systems and strict measures against underage access. “Remote gambling operators report all suspicious transactions to the relevant authorities and maintain a continuous collaboration with law enforcement agencies.”

In conclusion, Odeta assured authorities of the remote gambling operators’ willingness to collaborate in regulating the domain and enhancing its public perception.
