I first started playing online slots back in 2005 but didn’t participate enough to really have any stories to share. It wasn’t until the last year or two that I was able to start winning decent amounts and cashing out. I associate this to the fact that until then I didn’t do my research and didn’t really spend too much time reading up about different online games. Now that I am more educated about licensing, regulation and different software providers like Realtime Gaming (RTG) I have been able to choose the right slots to play for the best return possible. That is why I always recommend that new online gamblers take the time to read sites like this that have such a plethora of valuable information that is not one-sided. Also, it is nice to find reputable online communities with others around the world that you can share and learn from as well.
A Little More Background
One of the first things that I learned was that although RTG is pretty much available to any online casino operator that purchases a license to use their games, you have to make sure that the operator itself is an accredited one. RTG is such a huge provider that their software is available on thousands of online casinos and something that many may not know is that each operator that purchases a license from them has the ability to tweak the Return To Player (RTP) percentage within the software. While this may sound a little concerning, this is actually a good way to ensure that all online casinos playing experiences are not the same. Now that you know this little fun fact about the RTG software when it comes to individual casino sites, it’s best that I tell you which casino I was playing on when I hit. You can have great luck on a certain machine on one casino site while that same machine is really tight on another. It’s best to pay attention to these differences because you don’t want to spend too much of your hard-earned money on casino sites that tighten machines to their advantage. But at the same time, it also depends on the game itself so do your due diligence and don’t be afraid to use the free play option to get a feel of what your real money will do.
