How to Play Online Slots?

1. How to play online slots

slots guide

The rules for playing online slots differ from one game to another – it all depends on the specific software used for that game. However, the basic principles remain the same for each programme. Once players have a grasp of the basics on one game, the skill set is usually transferable to other machines, with just a few minor adjustments.

It’s also the case that games made by the same developers are often very similar because they use the same fundamental programming in their development.

Place your bets

  • Select which slot game to play and place your bet. There will be a button on the screen which players can click to do this, depositing money from their account.
  • Bets can be increased or decreased according to the player’s preference (usually a plus and minus button on the screen).
  • Each slot will have a minimum and maximum bet point (usually between 0.5 and 100 points). The more you bet, the more you can win. Bets will often be in ‘coins’, which will correspond to the player’s local currency.
  • Players may also need to select how many paylines they wish to play. For example, bet two coins while choosing to play five play lines will mean an initial bet of 10 coins – again, the higher the risks, the higher the rewards.

Time for a spin

  • Once happy with the bet, players hit the ‘Spin’ button which sets the wheels in motion. Once the reels stop spinning, the computer programme will automatically calculate if there are any winning paylines on the screen.
  • There is often an ‘autoplay’ function, meaning players can programme a certain amount of coins to bet in total and the bets are placed and wheels spun for you.

Winning paylines

  • Any winning paylines will be automatically credited to your online account.
  • Payout tables, help and FAQ tabs will answer any questions you have during gameplay and help to increase your understanding of individual gameplay rules.

3. What you need to know

  • Unlike the standard physical version, online slots have more than three reels. Usually it is five but it can be up to nine.
  • Winning paylines don’t necessarily need to appear in the middle row – they can be top row, diagonal or even zig zag (they vary with each game). But as stated above, the computer software will automatically spot winning lines.
  • Wilds and scatters – these are the two main types of winning symbols that you need to look out for. Wilds can stand in for any other symbol, meaning they can complete winning lines. Scatters generate different outcomes such as free spins, coin prizes or bonus rounds.

That about covers the basic rules of most online slots. It may tae a few spins for players to get their heads around the finer details of each game but don’t worry, as the programme will register if you’ve won a prize during that time.
