Online slots have been for quite some time the most popular form of online gambling. Still, even if the process of spinning the reels is not a slow business, we sometimes feel the need to save time in any way possible. Thankfully there's the Autoplay feature to make sure we don't have to sit at our computers all day - the reels will just keep on turning on their own. Never used Autoplay before? Don't worry; just scroll on and you'll learn all about this nifty feature in no time!
The Autoplay Feature Explained
First things first – what exactly is the Autoplay option? The name says it all, but let's spell it out anyway. The Autoplay feature lets you spin the reels of online slots for a preset number of times at online casinos. That means you can usually choose the number of times the reels will be spun without having to press the 'Spin' button. Saves a lot of trouble, doesn't it?

You can even get up from the computer, pop into the kitchen, fix yourself a nice cuppa and return in time to see whether any of the preset spins brought you huge wins. The same goes for mobile slots. You can set your phone aside and finish that last tasty bit of spaghetti without having to tap 'Spin' every few seconds.
When Not to Use the Autoplay Feature
There are certain instances when you aren't advised to use the Autoplay feature. When and why? Basically, what you need to be aware of is that when you're using this option, every spin will be using the same bet. So, if you were planning on changing the bet at some point, then Autoplay is not a good idea. Especially if you wanted to reduce the coin size and you're still on Max Bet – well, just imagine what that would do to your bankroll!

Also, if you're trying to get the most out of an online slot, then Autoplay is definitely not the best option for you. Why? It's simple, really. There's not as much suspense, drama and, ultimately, fun as there is when turning the reels one spin at a time.
Autoplay: Yay or Nay?
Finally, if you're not the type to sit glued to the screen and slot at hand, then Autoplay is the way to go. It saves time and it does the job for you. On the other hand, thrill-seekers will probably not enjoy the option as much. In the end, it's all down to personal preferences.
