Slots have been a gambler’s lure since time immemorial and are as addictive in nature as the daily lotteries which people buy. There is another similarity between the paper lottery and the slots and it is that both require a minimal amount as an initial investment where as the gains for the lucky individuals can turn out to be phenomenal. Slots can be played in the physical casino as well as the online casino and although the basic rules for the two varieties are same, the methodology might be a little different due to the parity in the medium.
The rules for playing online slots are listed as follows:
The three reel slot rules define five payout lines for each game namely the top row, the bottom row, the middle row, the left diagonal row as well as the right diagonal row. In order to earn a payout, the player needs to get a winning combination of symbols on any of the five payout lines.
Similarly the five reel slot rules features nine payout lines and the player should achieve a winning combination of symbols on one or more of the payout lines. Due to an increase in the number of payout lines, the chances of winning in this particular slots game are much higher.
The bonus slot rules state that the bonus game should feature only one payout line which is the middle row. The bonus game has a particular bonus symbol and if this symbol is flashed on any of the payout lines then the player receives an additional bonus payout.
The feature slot rules, true to their name, feature as many as 15 payout lines in each game and therefore the chances of winning are very high. In addition these slot rules also feature wild card symbols which can be effectively utilized by the player to make a winning combination.
The mega-spin slot rules entail playing multiple slot games so that the chances of winning are greatly enhanced. A standard mega-spin game features six three-reel slots with one payout line each and therefore a player has six chances to achieve a win.
While playing a slot game in an online casino the player is required to bet one to five coins per play and the value of the coin would be decided by the type of machine which is used. After having placed the bet, the player clicks on the button which spins the wheel and waits for the outcome. The payout of the player depends on the position at which the wheels stop and the amount for the winning combinations is calculated as per the pay table list. Among the various types of slot machines in an online casino, it is the progressive jackpot slot machine which is the most popular and the payout percentage of the total playing session is determined by the casino operator.
