1. Types of online slots
The beauty of online slots is because they are based on computer programmes., they can be designed in numerous ways, creating different gameplay styles to enjoy.
However, there are certain kinds of slots that seem to resonate with players and are commonly found online. These include:
3 reel classic slot machines
The classic 3 reel slot is based on the original physical machines. Easy to play, just match the symbols along the top, middle or bottom line to win.
5 reel slots
Most online slots moved away from the classic 3 reel design, partially because it was possible with advanced programming to make the games more visually attractive and exciting. More reels also increased the payline possibilities and created the chance of more cash prizes.
These are games where the value of the jackpot increases by a small amount each time if it is not won during a game. Odds are longer but the rewards are much greater.
These are slots that have specifically been created to play on smart phones or tablets, allowing players to game on the move, without losing any of the visual effect by playing on a smaller screen.
Mega spin slots
Why play just one slot at a time when you can play, four, five six or even more? Mega spin slots allow players to play several games all at once, on the same screen so they can keep track. They often come with progressive jackpot features.
As the name suggests, these are features that allow players the chance to multiply their winnings by a predetermined figure. Players can usually double, triple or even increase wins by as much as 100 times. Many, but not all online slots, have multiplier functions.
Differing from the classic clot design, which only has one payline, multi payline slots offer many chances to win. Paylines can be straight, diagonal or even zig zag. Multi payline slots can offer 3, 4 5 or even 25 paylines. It all depends on the game being played.
