It is understandable that new online casino players carry certain misconceptions and as a result make incorrect decisions. But it has been seen that there are regular experienced players who also fall prey to certain misconceptions from time to time.

One of the misconceptions concerns the choice of games on which regular players wager. It is often seen that when a player makes a big winning on a particular game he would continue playing on that game for a long time to come. His reasoning is that since he has won big money playing that game it must be having a better payout percentage than others. Therefore he reckons that continuously wagering on this game would be in his favor in the long run. This line of thinking is fallacious. Online casino games are games of chance and it is possible that an individual player wins a large amount on a game that has a comparatively lower average payout percentage. Without any idea of the payout percentages if a player sticks to one game only based on a single win, or even a few wins, it is possible that he may land up playing a game that has a lower average payout percentage. If he continues waging on this game in the long term he may be doing himself more harm than good.

In games like roulette, blackjack and video poker the payout percentages of old and new variants are widely reported and hence sooner or later players migrate to the variants that offer higher average payout percentages. The problem arises more in online slot games where average payout percentages are usually not reported. Therefore players who wager on online slot games should keep juggling the games so as to ensure that they do not get stuck on a game with a lower average payout.

In any event most slot games have an average payout percentage falling within a narrow band of 94% to 96%. Therefore the other aspects of selecting slot games have larger significance. There are many different types of features, especially bonus games, which are available in online slots. For example there are free spins rounds and bonus games on the second screen. Online slots developers have given to wild symbols amazingly different properties like that of a multiplier, or a bonus trigger or an expanding wild symbol. Variety is the spice of life and online slots players must wager on as many different slot games as possible in order to enjoy this variety. Almost 70% of the casino games offered by a software provider are online slots. The number of online slots at any online casino may range between 40 and 300 depending on the software provider. Hence it would be a total waste of player sticks to only one slot game and ignores the rest.

Of all online casino games slots have seen the most significant evolution. Today practically every new pack of slot games has something different and innovative to offer. Therefore trying out the new releases at the online casinos of which the player is a member is a must. It enables the player to keep up with the latest trends in online slot games and allows them to wager on games that are holistically the best.

With so many online casino slots out there to choose from and play sometimes it's hard not to play as many of them as you can. I however do find that there are just so many online casino games out there that when I generally find a few that I like I'll likely stick to those rather then looking for and playing a variety of other online slots games.
