Online Slots Guide


Slot machines have been around for many years and have become one of the most sought after games to play at casinos. With so many different themed slots to choose from. This is also the case with video slot games, they are fun to play and easy to understand.

Most video slots have 5 reels but there are 3 reel, 4 reel, and 6 reel slots that you can play as well. They also have progressive jackpots, minor and major jackpots, and even features that the older slot machines don’t have.

How to place a bet:

On video slots, push one button for the number of paylines you want to activate, and a second button for the number of credits wagered per line. One common configuration has nine paylines on which you can bet 1 to 5 credits. Video slots are also available with 5, 15, 20, 25, even 50 paylines, accepting up to 25 coins per line.


Payables explained

Video slots typically have representations of five reels spinning on a video screen. Paylines not only run straight across the reels but also run in V’s, upside-down V’s, and zigs and zags across the screen. Nearly all have at least five paylines, and most have more — up to 50 lines by the mid-2000s.

In addition, video slots usually feature bonus rounds and “scatter pays.” Designated symbols trigger a scatter pay if two, three, or more of them appear on the screen, even if they’re not on the same payline.

General rules of Slots

Most slot games pay from left to right. There are scatter symbols which gives you free spins and even wild symbols that doubles your wins.

In addition, some video slot games even have mini-games where you can choose your prizes or earn a bigger bonus. Some you even have to unlock chests/ Safes. Once opened you get a surprise win/ multiplier/ free spins or even a bigger bonus amount that gets added to your wins.
