One of the reasons that slot machines enjoy such popularity is that they have been around in one form or another for more than 100 years, so most people know something about how they work. Rules for playing slots online are much the same as for old-fashioned slot machines, with just a few key variations, depending on the type of game.
Online slots rules couldn't be simpler: insert your coins and spin the reel. When the reels stop spinning, check the 'payout line' to see if you have a winning combination of symbols. The payout line is the row of symbols that triggers a win. Payout lines can be horizontal or diagonal and there can be more than one payout line per game, depending on which slot you're playing.
Here's a brief summary of the rules for the slots games we offer:
- Three-reel slots: To win three-reel slots you need get a winning combination of symbols on the payout line(s). There may be as many as five payout lines on each game: top row; middle row; bottom row; left diagonal and right diagonal.
- Five-reel slots: There can be as many as nine payout lines on a five-reel slots game, which hugely increases your chance of winning. To win you must have a winning combination of symbols on one or more payout lines.
- Bonus slots: A bonus slots game only has one payout line: the middle row. However if the payout line shows the special bonus symbol you'll get an additional bonus payout.
- Progressive jackpots: These are without doubt the biggest paying online casino games today. The progressive jackpot, as the name suggests, is always rising; for every player that bets, the jackpot available to win increases. Many progressives do and have exceeded the $1m mark. This just shows you how many people play progressive jackpots in order to obtain the huge jackpot.
