Fancy Winning A Million Pound Jackpot?


Slot machines have become over the last hundred years, one of the most popular games in land-based casinos. This popularity has now spread to online casinos increasing the amount of people playing slots by millions. So why are online slot machines so popular? Well, they are easy and fun to play, but they also offer the prospect of million pound jackpots and huge paybacks if lady luck smiles on the player. No wonder, online slot machines are driving a major portion of the huge growth in online casinos.

History

Slot machines were invented by Charles Fey, a car mechanic, who wanted a game that would amuse his customers while they waited for their cars to be fixed. These first slot machines were made of cast iron and massive in size. His first three machines were slot machines that paid out at about 1/5 per cent and became hugely successful. People soon started coming to Fey's shop just to play his slot machines even without cars to fix! When Fey saw that his slot machines were so popular, he decided to sell them to a local toy manufacturer, who would mass market them to all the casinos. The slot machine has not looked back since and although the idea is still the same; the technology and payouts of slot machines have increased dramatically. Today's online slot machines are more sophisticated, but are still easy, fun to play, and offer bigger jackpots than ever before.

How to Play

The basics of playing slots could not be easier; you deposit a coin, or coins, pull the lever, and compare the results to the machine's payout schedule and hope you're the lucky one to get a payback. There are decisions to be made about which slot machines to play and how much to play in them; careful selection by you, the player in these areas, will help you increase your winnings potential.

Online Slot Machines

The rise of computer culture led to a revolution in the design of slots. While the old machines had actual reels that spun to determine the outcome of the play, the computerized machines of today have any number of symbols on any number of reels. The symbols displayed are determined by a random number generator (RNG), which is constantly selecting a number series that correspond to the different symbols on the various reels. When a player plays, the random number generator tells the computer program which symbols should appear. The visible spinning of the reels is for entertainment value only, and has nothing to do with which symbols will eventually appear on the pay line.

Machines To Play

Online slot machines fall into two basic categories; flat tops and progressives. They differ x in the way that they payout. A flat top slot has the predetermined payouts for given combinations printed on the machine. Progressive slots feature a jackpot that grows by a percentage of each coin played in the machine. Progressive slots normally have digital readouts advertising the current jackpot total, and this can be a life changing amount of seven figures or more.

A Fun Money Making Game for All

Online slot machines are popular because they are fun and easy to play. If you learn some basic slot playing tips, you have as much chance of winning the million pound jackpots or receive a large payback as anyone else. All you need to do is learn some basic strategy.
