You’ve taken a squizz at all the lekker online slots available at ZAR Casino, and now the big question is how to play them and win. Before we go any further, we need to put it out there that, when it comes to gambling, there are no guarantees that you’ll win. That said, there are ways you can improve your chances of winning and to make the most of your gaming sessions. Let’s dive in and take a closer look.

The Winning Potential Is Real With Online Slots

You absolutely do stand chances to win real money when you play real money slots online at ZAR Casino. Our games are provided by some of the best software providers in the industry.

This is an ultra-important factor. Casino regulation ensures Random Number Generation (RNG) software produces game results which are tested independently. Our online slots are provably fair, which means the bets you place have winning potential. However, you’ll only know if the odds are in your favour when you play the games.

How To Choose The Right Online Slots

There is a wide variety of slot machines to choose from at ZAR Casino, and this is something we pride ourselves on. You’ll find different types of online slots South Africa players can enjoy, an array of themes and bonus features, and games with different Return to Player percentages (RTP), volatilities, and bet limits.

Consider those various factors when choosing a slot machine. We recommend choosing casino games with a RTP higher than 96%, as the RTP is the theoretical percentage of every Rand you bet that will be returned to you over an indefinite period of time. Remember, the percentage is theoretical, so you may receive less or more back over time.

We also recommend choosing a medium volatility real money slot online. In theory, a medium volatility game offers relatively frequent smaller potential wins as well as the occasional larger potential win. Playing medium volatility games should give you a good mix of excitement and entertainment.

It’s also good to remember that you should only play games that are produced by the most trustworthy licensed providers at safe, secure, and licensed online casinos such as ZAR Casino.

The Online Slots Casino That Pays Out

South African players understandably are concerned about being able to withdraw their online slot winnings without any hassle, fuss, or ridiculous hidden fees. After all, we work hard for our money, and if we’re going to gamble with it, we expect good service.

The online casinos that pay out are licensed and regulated. Regulation doesn’t only ensure that the game software is tested regularly for fairness and accuracy. It also ensures that casinos have the funds to honour players’ winnings, and that they do this without making customers wait for ages.

ZAR Casino is a licensed, regulated, and secure online casino that you can trust to pay out. Please note that, while we process withdrawal requests daily, there is a 48-hour withdrawal pending period, and that payments to play accounts happen on Mondays and Thursdays.

Types Of Online Slots

We mentioned above that you’ll find different types of online slots at ZAR Casino. Reel-based games generally fall into one of three categories, namely classic, video, and progressive slots. Knowing the difference between them makes it easier to identify the games you prefer playing.

Games in the classic category usually have 3 reels and 1 payline, and many of them use traditional slot symbols such as stars, 7s, bars, bells, and fruit. If they have any bonus features, those features are usually limited to Wild symbols that substitute for other icons if they can help create winning combinations, and to Free Spins.

Video online slots are the most popular of all reel-based games. They usually have 5 reels and multiple paylines, a variety of bonus features such as Wild and Scatter symbols, mini games, and Free Spins, themes with storylines, and special effects and animated scenes.

Progressive slots are similar to the games in the video category, in that they have themes and bonus features. However, their defining factor is that they launch with a seed jackpot that gets bigger over time. Those jackpots can reach millions of Rand. They re-set to the seed amount after paying out.
