Slots are our everything! You have to defeat not another player, but us, that is, the casino. No bluff, no fear, just pure risk and excitement. There are a huge variety of different slot games to choose from, so you can easily find something to your liking.
As in all other games, the main guarantee of success in a casino is a solid understanding of the rules and mechanics of the game. To begin with, let’s deal with such a concept as a payline. A payline is a line on the reels, along which winning combinations are formed.
In classic slot machines, it was a line of three identical symbols that were supposed to appear strictly in the center of the reels. However, with the development of video slots, paylines have become more and more sophisticated. Now they are not only horizontal, but also vertical, diagonal, zigzag – it all depends on the particular slot game and the number of paylines in it.
First, you need to decide on how many lines you want to play. While in simple slot machines you can still find only one payline, in modern slots their number can even go up to several hundred.
The goal of the game is to collect three or more of the same symbols on one line. Your winnings depend on the specific symbols as well as the size of the bet.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it?
• Before you start playing in a new video slot for yourself, be sure to understand the possible paylines here.
• Then read the payout table. If you have come to win, know how to do it!
• Watch out for Wild symbols as they can replace any other symbol on the reels.
• Video slots with low volatility are characterized by frequent small wins, with high volatility – huge wins, but the chances of them are much lower.
• Play smart. If you want to hit the jackpot, stay in the game as long as possible.
