Slots And The Basics Of The Game


Whether your new to the slots or a seasoned player you'll find this information to be valuable. We'll even throw in a quick peek at slots in action at one of the best and most popular casinos on the net.

Slot machines are easy to play and what attracts most players is they're fast and the payback is generally pretty high. They'll take anywhere from 1 to 5 coins and all you need to do is plug in the coins and pull the handle or in some cases press the button. The principal for both types is the same. There's lots of sound animation and for many this is their game of choice. Many people have won huge jackpots playing their favorite slot game.

Different machines have different ways of determining whether you are a winner by the paylines and the number of coins the player has inserted. One coin may pay on the middle line, a second coin on the top line and a third on the bottom line. With this, any of the three horizontal lines will pay if a combination is hit. A fourth coin will pay on a diagonal line and a fifth on the other diagonal line.

Hit one of these combinations and you'll hear a beautiful sound. The sound of winning as cash hits your pocket. If you hit a really big jackpot, even more noise will be accompanied by a flashing light in many cases. Here of course we are referring to an actual casino environment. The machine may stop paying out at some point and the light stop flashing. After a slight wait you'll be visited by an attendant or casino employee who will give you your winnings.

How loose or tight the machine is set, is determined by the casino.

Lets take a look at a sample slots payoff, per coin:

Winning Combination -------------------- Payoff
7-7-7 ----------------------------------100 coins
Bar-Bar-Bar ---------------------------- 50 coins
Bell-Bell-Bell ------------------------- 20 coins
Bell-Bell-Bar -------------------------- 18 coins
Bar-Bell-Bell -------------------------- 18 coins
Plum-Plum-Plum ------------------------- 20 coins
