Playing online slots is a little different than
playing conventional slot machines in a land based casino, but it's
still easy to get started. If you're new to online gaming and not
familiar with the process, here's how to get gambling:
First, you need to find a casino:
Just where you'll play should depend on what kind of slots you enjoy
and what the casino can offer you as a player. There are literally
thousands of online casinos, some better than others, some outright
bad. We've only listed reputable online casinos that we've dealt
with ourselves here at Slots Gambling - so you can be comfortable
choosing from any casinos you see here.
While there are lots of different casinos - there's still
only a handful of software providers that make the casino software
these casinos operate off. What that means, is that while there's
different management, bonuses, policies and sometimes slightly
different game suites at each casino - most casinos will offer
a downloadable software package that fits into one of only a few
types. Casino Tropez and Club Dice casino for example are both
great places to play - but they share the same Playtech software
- and therefore they both have the same type of slot machines.
Try to find a casino that you enjoy and stay there. They offer
different themes, different bonuses to new players, and depending
on which type of software they're running - different games. No
casino is 'best' all around - it's really a matter of preference.
On our review page you'll
find plenty of slots to choose from along with information on
how and where to download and play.
Download The Casino
Most online casinos will offer their casino games as a download-only
piece of software, so to get started you'll have to download and
install the games before continuing. Some casinos may offer a no-download
version of particular games, which can usually be played through
Flash or Java right in your browser; however we recommend download
games, as they're quicker to launch and have better graphics and
Register An Account
Once you've found a casino to play at and downloaded the software,
you need to register an account with the casino. Most online casinos
will require some form of registration before they'll let you play
- even for free. If you're playing for real money, register a 'real'
account. If you're just evaluating the software and would like to
play for fun, open a 'play', 'guest' or 'demo' account (it will
be named differently at different casinos).

from gambling at a 'regular' casino to gambling online. There's
