Guide to Playing Online Slots
The variety of online slots available is forever increasing, from movies to Marvel themes, there is always something new to attract players. Here we have put together a simple guide for those who are new to playing online slots;
Types of online slots
Video Slots – slots that have video type graphics
Classic Slots – classic style reel slots
Progressive – the jackpot progressively increases as players of dedicated games play, and when the winning combination is hit, that player will win the overall jackpot from all dedicated games.
Jackpot – jackpot slots have a specific jackpot to be one, similar to above.
Types of slot game features
Bonus – a bonus round is hit when 3 ‘bonus’ symbols appear.
Free Spins – free spins usually appear when either 3 free spin symbols appear, or 3 ‘scatters’.
Scatter – when 3 ‘scatters’ appear, this can mean either some kind of bonus round is activated, or a bunch of free spins, or both, depending on the slot game.
When you first load up your chosen slot you will be able to see what the machine is set at. It is recommended that you select ‘maximum lines’ to increase every chance of winning. Then, adjust your stake, ‘bet per line’, and check it via the number in ‘total bet’.
An example of this is;
If the slot has 20 lines, and you select 1p per line, your overall bet will be 20p per spin.
You then play the slot game by pressing the spin button. Most players like to stay in the same slot for a while to see if they can get a bonus round, as these can be really interactive and fun, as well as delivering financial rewards. There is nothing to stop you from changing to other slots, though, trying some different themes out – online slots are completely random and have no memory, and so the longer you play a certain slot does not mean a better chance of a payout.
