When you’re playing slots, making wagers and spinning, you often have the ability to speed up the outcome and move on to the next spin faster by hitting the spin button multiple times. What happens when you get a bonus?

Do you think when you rapid fire a bonus you still have the same outcome as if you got a bonus naturally?

Mamata S.

The outcome of the bonus can be determined in two ways:

  • Predetermined bonuses have the amount you will win decided at the moment you make the wager that triggers the bonus. So the timing of the spin that triggered it covers everything that follows.
  • True bonuses are conducted as you progress, so the wager only confirms you’ve triggered the bonus, and then the free spins, picking or whatnot that follows will ultimately determine the bonus outcome.

In either scenario, rapid firing to trigger the bonus has no impact. That’s because either it already knows what it’s going to pay you, regardless of how you got it, or it hasn’t been decided yet, and again it doesn’t care how the bonus was established as that’s not how the bonus win will be decided.

Now, if you then proceed to rapid fire free spins in the bonus, and it’s a true bonus using the RNG, you may change the outcome of that bonus. But will it be better or worse than if you let it run out? Well, you’ll never know, because it doesn’t show you the other outcome. So ultimately we discourage players from worrying too much about that.

Now, there is one good reason why not to rapid fire a bonus – for the duration of that bonus, you’re winning, without being required to make any wagers. If you race through the bonus, you’re back to betting that much sooner, putting more money at risk and exposing it to the house edge that each casino game has. So letting the bonuses play out has the benefit of helping your money last, simply by not spending any of it for a bit.
