Both online gambling operations, and land-based gaming operations, prefer their players to play online casino games in as expeditious a manner as they can get them to. The reason for this is that the faster the gameplay is, the more money the casino makes. The more spins, throws, or deals per hour that are made at online casinos result in more money for the online casino and less money for their patrons.
Part of the reason that online casinos make more money off players who play faster is, of course, the mere fact that more bets are placed in a shorter space of time. The other reason is that players have less time to think before they make their decisions, and therefore make hasty decisions that may not be the best ones for them, or for the game they are playing. This goes for all online casino players, in particular for those that are new to online casinos, or new to a specific online casino game.
For those players that take the time to learn new games, studying the odds and various strategies, their time is wasted if they are not given a chance to put into practice what they have learned. Sometimes the best gaming tactic that players can learn is how to slow down gameplay.
Not only does slowing down gameplay give a player the chance to make a better decision, but it also means that they will have more time to spend at the slot machine or table at which they have chosen to play. Logically, if a player is making fewer bets per hour, their bankroll will last longer, and they can enjoy their online casino play for more extended periods of time.
Slow Down online and land-based
Of course, it is easy to tell players to slow down the speed of their online casino play, but less easy to do so in practice. It is simpler to make choices in a land-based casino that will help slow down play, such as choosing games where shuffling is done manually, instead of by a shuffling machine.
Other choices that can be made are choosing games that are played more slowly. When playing online, against other opponents, you can decide to leave a game that is being played very fast and look for candidates that prefer a slower game.
When playing online slots, it is very easy to keep pressing the spin button, and burning through your bankroll in a very short space of time. Take your time to be social. Chat with other players in chat rooms, take a couple of spins, talk again, and then go back to playing your favorite slots. Some may choose to get up and walk around, and then come back to their computers.
Choose a delaying strategy that works for you, and remember to implement it before your bankroll disappears too quickly.
