Slot machines have been around for over a century, and so is the game. That is why it is not much of a surprise why they are the “crowd’s favorite,” and why people enjoy and love playing it. Whether it is in casinos or online people play it, the rules never change, which is convenient to every player. You only have to do a little study about the mechanics of the game, as opposed to the required long- term practice in other gambling games. The rules are very simple and easy to understand. Beginners are often welcome to play it right away.
First, you have to decide what kind of slot machine you want to use. There are some that have 3 reels, while others have 5. You also have to consider the “payline”. This is the sequence of the symbols that is read from left to right. Whatever payline is shown as the result on that round, you compare it with a chart and check out its corresponding prize, if it is even on the list. This is where the players find out if they won or not, and how much they incurred if they did win.
To win the Three Reel Slots, your combination on the payline must match with any that is on the list. The payout lines in these slots may be on the top row, middle row, bottom row, left diagonal, or right diagonal. In the Five Reel Slots, there are as many as 9 payout lines. Having said this, there is a much bigger chance of winning a round. Again, you have to have a winning combination in at least one payline. In the Bonus Slots, the only payline is the middle row. In order to have the bonus, you must get one of the right combinations. In case the symbol on the payline is the special bonus symbol, you get an additional. The Feature Slots have way more paylines, having at least 15. There are also wildcard symbols that a player can use to complete a winning combination. Lastly, the MegaSpin Slots is a mix of a lot of Three Reel Slots. Imagine 6 Three Real Slots! This promises a way bigger chance in winning.
To have an almost- sure win, pick a machine that allows a maximum bet. This way, you can insert more coins, which promises a bigger amount of money. Each kind of coin- penny, cent, nickel, dime, quarter, and dollar- can be used. Always remember the combinations that can make you win the jackpot or the progressive jackpot.
Online casinos do not have much difference from traditional casinos. They only tend to have much bigger payouts and a better chance at the jackpot. The jackpot is an accumulation of the previous bets. It only keeps on getting higher until someone hits it right.
There are also a couple of variations in the game of slots. There is the Multiplier Game, wherein the you earn more if your insert more coins. Each value of the coin is then multiplied to a certain denomination, making you win a lot more than your original bet. There is also the Multi- Line Game. This allows you to earn something from the top and bottom lines, which, in traditional slot machines, you are not usually able to do. This is in exchange for a couple of coins. Lastly, there is the progressive machine. This gets a certain percentage from the bet and adds it to the current amount for the jackpot.
With these very simple rules in playing slot machines, you are bound to have the time of your life in playing.
