Defining a high limit slot is as tough as figuring out whether an amount is big or small, because it’s an extremely subjective matter. For the sake of this article, we will use the so-called developed countries as an example, because high stakes gambling is usually regarded as a luxury that only well-off people can afford.
Let’s say a person with a disposable income of $1,000 wants to dedicate $500 of it to gambling. Let’s also assume that slots “strategies” are correct in their advice that the average person’s bankroll should last them for a good 7-8 hours. In this case, with a $500 bankroll, an average of 20 spins/minute and a return of 95% our hero will be able to play for roughly 8 hours with an average stake of approximately $1/spin. Bump that up to $2 and the play time is cut in half. If said person is feeling a little adventurous and decides to bet $4/spin, the play time goes down to 2 hours or so. What does this tell us? It tells us that $4/spin might turn out to be a bit of an expensive adventure for the average Joe, but at the same time feel as peanuts to someone whose car park consists of a Range Rover, a Bugatti, and a Lambo. Truth is, most of us are average Joes, so a bet of $4-5 should probably constitute as a high stake bet.
The good thing with online slots is that we get to decide how much we want to bet. Unlike brick-and-mortar casinos, most of the time there’s nobody around us that we need to impress, there is no bad influence or peer pressure, and no one actually forces us to go crazy, unless we really want to and can afford it.
Slots with high wagers
If we assume that the $5 mark is where high-stake slots betting begins, most online casinos offer abundant options and picking a slot machine becomes a matter of fancy graphics, pleasant gameplay, nice soundtracks, and reasonable aesthetic choices. Some microgaming titles offer $125 bets, and we would be lying if we said we haven’t seen even more ludicrous alternatives, but for our own peace of mind and your financial well being, we would prefer to keep that knowledge to ourselves. NetEnt titles offer bets in excess of $100 and don’t get us started on Playtech slots that occasionally touch the $500 mark.
Truth is that if you’re feeling wealthy, there are plenty of places where you can try your luck with some considerable amounts of money.
For your (high-stake) everyday slots action, we would vouch for RoyalVegas, and LeoVegas, as two of the best options out there for casino game players.
