Who said that slots were just for old ladies in clothes that wore out their use by date 40 years ago? If you take a step onto the gaming floor of any bustling casino on a Saturday night you’ll see plenty of fashionistas having a spin while dressed to the gods – perhaps after a few drinks after bar hopping nearby, between dance floor breaks at the nightclub, or even at the end of the night to wind down before retiring to a suite at the casino. Hey, some who catch the bug might even be bouncing between the slots and the tables until far into the morning!
Cut to – any fashion-forward girl or guy worth their salt treats their phone like it’s their number one accessory. There’s no way the day is getting started without a good flick through Instagram and a couple of online magazines (like the bible) or blogs. Keeping up with what’s going to work with your style, picking and choosing pieces and accessories that are similar or the same as what you see online is what keeps you always on point in the style stakes.
But hey, it can’t all be all “I-want-that” style browsing online. Everyone needs a little bit of diversity in their mobile internet usage.
Gaming for the fashionista
You don’t have time to mess around with long-play games. You probably have a little time to kill on your work break, or while sipping on your morning coffee – black, please, no sugar. You might have half an hour or so to spend before bed when you’re a little bored.
That’s why online slots are the perfect little filler activity when it’s nothing but you, and your phone, and you’re bored of the rest of the internet.
You’ll be happy to hear that there are glamour and fashioned themed slots online that you can while away your time to relax a little and/or get hyped on the win.
Ways to play slots online
Ok, so you’re sold on the idea and wondering where and how to play slots. There are a few different options open to you here.
Apps via the mobile app stores
One option is to check out either the iOS or Android app store and have a browse around to see what is available. Make sure to check out the videos so you can see whether you’ll actually be interested in playing.
The issue with the apps in the respective app stores is that they aren’t games designed to play for real money – as per the rules of Apple and Google. Real money slots apps are only available on the Google Play Store in UK, Ireland, and France.
This means that you accumulate points instead, which are just a status token you can use to bet more. This is fine for players that want to keep their cold hard cash in their pocket – just make sure that you aren’t buying extra in-game credits to keep playing if this is the case.
Online slots through your web browser
The other option, that doesn’t involve downloading an app, is to play slot games through your browser. These games have been designed specifically to look good and play well on your phone, so you don’t have to worry about dropping quality as compared to mobile app games.
Now, there are plenty of sites that are free to play, much like the apps, or try out demos of games where you can win real money.
There are also plenty of real money slots houses where you can buy some chips (make sure to search out sign up bonuses before you do) and go and play some slots or table games where you can actually make some returns. Almost like being at the actual casino playing slots except you don’t actually have to go there to play. Can anyone even imagine life without a phone anymore? The thought of it is actually enough to cause a mild to medium level of discomfort!
Make sure to play it safe
When choosing real money slot games, make sure that the slots house you’re playing at is legit – check out the return rates for games and that the games are verified by a proper gaming authority. Dodgy online slots houses do exist – with the sole purpose of taking more of your hard-earned cash.
It’s also wise to set yourself limits if you are playing for (and with) real money. Don’t spend more than you would on a basic meal out or a couple of drinks. Limit yourself wisely. If you start pouring in more funds than you really should, then this will come out of your fashion budget.
While we’re definitely fans of bargain thrifting (shout out to Depop), it doesn’t mean that we should be pressured into only this style of shopping due to accidentally spending money elsewhere that we really shouldn’t have.
A clever fashionista budgets well, is always looking fresh, and still has some extra to spend on the other fun stuff.
