Here we explain the various types of Online Slots
Standard 3-Reel Slots:
This is the most basic of all the online slots and it’s still one of the most popular slot machines to play. You simply bet a specific amount and then let the three reels spin. Depending on where the three reels stop will determine if you had a win or a loss.
3-Reel Max Bet 2 Slots:
Essentially the same as the above Standard 3-Reel Slot with the only difference being that these machines will only allow you to place a maximum bet of two coins and not three.
3-Line and 5-Line Slot Machines:
In the two options above there is only one single payline. With a 3-Line Slot there are three and likewise with a 5-Line Slot there are five. The objective here is that you get to select your bet per payline, and the paylines on which you bet. A payline is the line on which a payout will be awarded. There are X amount of paylines in any given slot and in this case either 3 or 5.
Video Slots and Progressive Slots
Same as above, only here these slot machines have more than 3 or 5 lines, usually 8 or 9.
3-Row and 5-Row Multispin Slots:
A very popular slot to play and favoured by many for the multitude of combinations available to win. With these Multispin slots, after your first spin you then get to choose which reels you want to hold, then you get to spin the rest of the reels again. In the case of a 3-row and 5-row Slot you have 3 or 5 rows of reels.
Think of it as an incentive bonus. With these types of online slots you need to hit a specific symbol combination, or alternatively collect a certain amount of symbols. When you do, you will enter a bonus round, with special features or prizes that boost your winnings.
The biggest payout combination and obviously the most lucrative. With a progressive jackpot a certain percentage of every bet placed goes into a progressive jackpot pool. Normally a Progressive Jackpot is only triggered when playing in “Max Bet” mode and you hit a very specific symbol combination.
