Ever wondered what the symbols on the slot are all about? Well keep reading and we’ll let you in all their secrets.
A slot is made up of 3 symbols, the first are the regular face symbols. Face symbols make up the majority of the slot and are there to make you money. There usually are a lot of these types of symbols in the slot and all have different values.
Secondly the scatter symbols. Scatter symbols are the least common symbols on the slot. They are used to unlock bonus rounds such as a free spin mode or mini games. Usually you have to spin three scatter symbols to unlock their bonus rounds but they only have to be on screen and not along any paylines. When there are multiple mini games available you will often see a few different scatter symbols each tied to its separate bonus round. Sometimes scatter symbols can substitute the symbols and be involved in paylines, but this is rare.
Lastly, there are wilds symbols. Wilds are substitute symbols which can stand in for any face symbol allowing you to create more winning lines. Wilds are however usually worth a low value of points. So a line of two face symbols and a wilds symbol will win you less than 3 of the same face symbol. You can usually find all this information in the pay table. Wilds can also sometimes have special additional abilities like being sticky. This means they will stay in the screen for several spins filling in for face symbols for longer.
So now you understand what the symbols mean. Every slot does something different with symbols, so start exploring to become a slot expert.
