Hoe Does the Auto-Play Function Actually Work?


Have you ever got tired of those repetitive casino games in which you have to press the same button over and over again? Then you will be happy to hear that online gaming software providers have now developed vert good auto-play in the industry.

Auto-play allows players to sit back and watch while the casino automatically hits the button in repetitive games such as slot machines. At most casinos you can find the auto-play button right below the reels or somwehere in the meny. Once you click it, a window will open displaying the settings.

The first thing that you can set is the number of spins, the options are 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250 and 500 whereas some other software providers might allow you to input the exact number of spins you want. After that you can choose the number of seconds between spins with values ranging from 0.25 seconds to 2.00 seconds and some variations. At most casinos you will not be able to see the animations nor the winnings you have made when on auto-play function, but, if you want to see the numbers you can always check the “wait until all wins are shown” box.

You then have a chance to arrange the Stop settings which means that the auto-play function will stop spinning the reels once certain conditions are met. There are four main settings for this option and they are: stop after all spins are complete, stop if the winnings increase or decrease by a certain amount, stop if a jackpot is won.

All in all, auto-play allows you to go make yourself a sandwich and then come back to see how much money you have been making without having to wait in front of the screen all the time.
