The kind of options that you will need to exercise while playing online slots will depend on whether you are playing slots in a dedicated manner without engaging in other activities or are tinkering with something else while playing slots. Playing slots is a sensory experience, rich in audio visual inputs. This experience contributes to the pleasure as much as the gaming experience does. Therefore if you are a new slots player or are playing a new slots game you would benefit from concentrating on slots alone and should exercise those options that enhance the richness of the game.
The option that affects the visual impact of the game is whether to play in the full screen mode or in the windowed mode. In the full screen mode the Windows tool bars and the scroll bars disappear and the game spreads across the full screen. If you are not doing anything else on your computer while playing slots then the full screen option is preferable. To start with it eliminates all distractions. The full screen enables the depiction of larger and sharper images. It also renders the animations and video clips more effective. However if you are checking your mail while playing slots then toggling back and forth from the full screen mode can be cumbersome. In that event it is better to play in the windowed mode so that you can toggle between activities with a single click.
The sound effects in online slots are subtler but equally exciting. There is introductory theme music as the game loads. There are sound effects as the reels spin. When a winning combination is hit a louder and distinctive sound effect takes over. This could be music or other audio inputs compatible with the theme. And finally if there is no action on the game front then background music takes over. The best online slots have the facility to turn each of these options on and off individually. The not so good online slots may come with a package deal for all sound options. If you are new to the game then you should enjoy the variety of audio effects. The synchronization of the audio inputs with the theme of the slot game and with the visual inputs raises the quality of the game manifold. However if you been there and done that you may prefer to hear your favorite Beatles track while you are playing slots. If you are toggling slots with other work and especially if the other work involves audio feeds then it may be a good idea to turn of all audio inputs.
Expert slots players often prefer to use the Auto Play mode. Their bets are decided as are the number of spins they want to play. They can feed these inputs and the game will carry out the number of operations without stopping after each spin and eliminating the need to click the rebet and spin buttons again and again. This leaves the player free to do whatever else he wants. Most online slots offer refined options in Auto Play. One is to stop the game every time there is a win. Small amounts can be won frequently in online slots and enabling this option defeats the purpose of auto play. However expert players may want to stop playing if they win over a certain amount. They see no point in investing further funds once their objective is achieved. If the slot games offer this option it is worth exercising.
