Ever wanted to get into slots but don’t know how to. In this blog post we’ll be covering the basic rules of video slots and giving you all you need to know to get spinning those reels.
Slots, work by the players spinning reels made of symbols. Reels are the columns of the slots. Slots can vary in how many reels they have and how many row symbols are on each reel. A slot is controlled by the spin button. The spin button, which would spin the reels that would then land on certain symbols. Before each spin the player bets an amount of money, wagering that they will end with lines of symbols. The player wins if three or more symbols line up along a payline.
The amount won depends on the value of the symbol landed on and the size of the wager. Some symbols may only return 50% whilst others may win you 100 times what you bet. Different slots have different symbols and different values for each symbol. So remember to always read the pay table before you start any slot game.
Modern slots don’t have actual reels that spin but instead randomly generate the symbols on each reel. When the reels are spinning, what is actually happening is the slot is selecting which symbols should appear on which reel. This is completely random in contrast with physical slot machines which have a set order of symbols on the reels. This means it is really impossible to predict what might come next. So now you know the basics of how to play slots, how you spin, what you’re aiming for and a little of what is happening when it spins.
