Playing slots is among the enjoyable games in casinos. It’s so thrilling watching as the reels or the wheels offer perfect combinations of symbols that offer us instant money. Nevertheless, since the combinations change thousands of times in each second, the chances are always against the player. But as we believe, if there is a will, there is a way. Yes, there are ways which can expand the potential to win at slots or lessen your likelihood of losing. Let’s start with several tips you should always remember when playing online slots in any casino.


Set a limit for him or herself. Think of the amount you can really afford to lose.

The first and very basic guideline for every player is to set a limit for him or herself. Setting a limit on the money to be spent or the span of time to play is important to consider before playing slots to avoid regrets in the end. Playing slots is a gambling game, thus, don’t take it too seriously and use all the money that you’ve worked hard for. Know when to stop. If you decided to set an amount for that day to spend in the casino game, then stick to it even when you lost several times. Go home once your watch alarms. Think of the amount you can really afford to lose to have a broader view of your endeavour. 


Don’t dare to win your money back.

For sure, you’ll lose even more.


Know the rules in slots you are playing. Always ask assistance if needed. Practice in free mode before playing for real money.

If you’re not much aware of the rules or stages in the casino games like in slots, you might ask the help and assistance of the crew of the casino. They’re available round the clock. They can explain the rules and details of the bonuses and payouts. Reach OlyBet customer support service by online chat or phone +370 5214 1425 every day 09:00-00:00. Also, you may email them at

Look for slot machines that provide extra and high bonuses like free bonus rounds or bonus spins. Choose slots that have a payback of 90 percent and above.

1-2-4 Betting Strategy

Player Steps

These are three essential steps to follow in 1-2-4 Betting Strategy:


First Step

Fix a rate for the first session – 1% of the deposit, played on the basic rate of 25 spins if you win more than ten times start playing a new slot. If the balance remains the same or it’s better or worse for a couple of bet sizes take another 25 spins. If the balance is negative go to step 2.


Second Step

The rate for the second session should be twice the rate of the first session (2% of the initial deposit). We make 25 spins, and if we manage to build back the balance to zero (it has become equal to or greater than the balance at the beginning of the session on this slot), we start a new slot. Otherwise, proceed to step 3.


Third Step

The rate for the third session should also be doubled. The goals are the same as in the second paragraph or fight off balance by spinning the reels 10 times immediately after your balance is back to zero and go to the next slot. If the slot doesn’t pay anything, you can get frustrated and move on to the next slot.

Please note that the bet size doesn’t change if you win. For instance, if the first slot you played doubles your initial deposit, you can withdraw the money right away. However, if you decide to keep playing, then play with the original deposit only and don’t double the bet size.

Selecting Right Slots

For hitting many wins with this strategy, we need low dispersion slots, which often pay between x20 and x100.
A list of recommended slots in order of preference from left to right:

Blood Suckers

By NetEnt

Foxin’ Wins

By NextGen


By NextGen

Try with Real Money

Deposit 100 Euros and by the first step bet 1 Euro (1% of the deposit); the goal of the first session is 10 Euros. Spin 25 times and the stake size for the second session doubles (2 Euros); the purpose of the second session is to return to the initial balance you had at the beginning of the first session. Spin 25 times. The third session rate also doubles (to 4 Euros), and the goal is to return to the balance at the beginning of the first session. Spin 10 times.
